The adjourned inquest on Mrs. Louisa Collings, who died under what were considered suspicious circumstances, at Botany, was concluded to-day.

The Government Analyst gave evidence that he found no trace of poisoning in the stomach, and that death was due to excessive use of alcoholic liquors.

The jury returned a verdict to that effect. Wagga Wagga Express (NSW : 1879 - 1917) Saturday 26 October 1901 p 2

KIAMA, Monday.

While preparing breakfast this morning Mrs. Phil Collins, of Jamberoo, was severely burned through her dress catching alight at the kitchen fire. She ran screaming into another room for assistance, enveloped in flames from head to foot. The ambulance was sent for and took Mrs. Collins to the Kiama Hospital, where she now lies in a critical condition. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Tuesday 22 May 1928 p 12

Mrs. Collins arrived in Sydney having stood the journey exceedingly well. She is within a few minutes' walk of her daughter, Mrs Bert Fahey, on the North Shore. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 4 August 1928 p 2


The sad news came through on Thursday to Jamberoo that Mrs. Phil. Collins (who was so badly burned by her clothing accidentally catching fire on May 23) had died in Sydney that morning.

The deepest sympathy is felt for Mr. Collins and the Messrs. Jno. and Phil. Collins, her sons, who were wrapped up in their mother and spared no expense or left a thing undone that affection could prompt during the long and painful illness that followed the accident.

Owing to the terrible nature of her injuries and the consequent shock, little hope was entertained from the first of recovery, as Mrs. Collins was 66 years of age. The deceased lady was one of an old district family, born at Bob's Flat, under the shadow of the Jamberoo mountain, her parents the late Mr. and Mrs. Jno. Brennan, old pioneer folk of Jamberoo. She was one of the kindest of women in sickness and trouble, a friend to many, and in her home a most devoted mother, greatly beloved by her children. Mrs. A. Fahey, her daughter residing in Sydney, mourns with her brothers in their great loss. The gentle Christian character of the late Mrs. Collins and her good life, was a pattern to all who knew her and she was an earnest church worker.

The funeral takes place this afternoon. The body was conveyed by evening train to Kiama and thence to Jamberoo, a service to be held in St. Matthews Church previous to the interment. Widespread sympathy is expressed for the Collins family in their trouble, and to Messrs. J. and N. Brennan, of Sydney, her brothers.

For some ten weeks the late Mrs. Collins was a private patient in the Sarah Fuller Memorial ward at the Kiama Hospital and a week or so ago was removed to Sydney for special treatment. She stood the journey better than expected but a sudden collapse brought the end. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 11 August 1928 p 2

Her second husband was a jeweller

Illawarra Mercury Index Issue 14 May 1898 Daughter of late Mr Haworth, sister of Mrs Rathmell Snr. 82 years.


It is not often that husband and wife follow one another to the grave so closely as did Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Collins, of

Wollongong, within the last few days as it were. On the Friday of the week before last the mortal remains of Mrs. Collins were laid in the Church of England cemetery, and on Friday last those of her husband were deposited there.

The age of the former was 74 years, and that of the latter 82 years. Both of them were old residents of the district and much respected, and, although they passed away from this life unknown to the present community in a general sense, each of them formerly occupied a prominent position in local society.

Mrs. Collins was the daughter of the late Mr. Robert Haworth, who was the owner, and occupier of the Kembla Grange Estate, for many years, and who, within that period, represented the electorate of Illawarra in Parliament, the constituency then embracing the portion of the district northward of the Macquarie and Coal Cliff ; and it may be mentioned that it was during Mr. Haworth's representation of Illawarra that the amount of money for the con struction of Belmere Basin was granted by Parliament. Much of Mrs. Collins' early life was spent at Kembla Grange.

In course of time, however, she married a relative — the late Mr. Jonathan Haworth, who predeceased her many years ago. About fourbeen or fifteen years since she became the second wife of Mr. Thomas Collins, who long before then had been carrying on a jewellery business in Wollongong; and, after passing the remainder of their lives happily together, they passed away, as already stated, within a week of one another.

Mr. Collins was an old residente of the district and had served as an alderman of Wollongong over a lengthened period and was Mayor, of the borough two or three years. He was an unassuming and worthy man, and until the effects of age caused him to live very much in retirement he was a well-known figure in Wollongong every-day life.

Mrs. Collins was a sister of our respected townswonan, Mrs Rathmell, sen., of Corrimal-street, and Mr. Collins was the father of Mrs. James Rathmell, of the same place, also of the late Mrs.Robert Oswald, and of the wife of the Rev. Aden Parsons, of Sydney, the latter gentleman being among those who attended the funeral on Friday. Mrs. Collins left one son by her first marriage — Mr. Kembla Haworth.

The sad death occurred in Lismore last Monday of Mrs. Elizabeth Collins.

The remains were brought to Mullumbimby for interment in the Roman Catholic portion of the local cemetery. The Rev. Father Williams conducted the funeral ceremony.

Mrs. S. Knight of Mullumbimby and Mrs. McCarthy, of Main Arm, are daughters of deceased.

Here's a clipping from the Durham “Chronicle” (England) of September. 15, 1905:— On Thursday night a successful 'at home' was held at the house of Mrs. Smith, Travellers Rest Inn, Murton Colliery, as a send off to Mr. and Mrs. David Collins, who have been at Murton on a visit from Helensburgh (N.S.W.) since March last, and who are nephew and niece of Mr. Jos Short, an old resident of the colliery. There were over 60 present (all relatives), and a very pleasant evening was spent. Mr. Jos. Short, senr., presided, and in a neat speech, explained the object of the gathering. Several toasts were duly honored, and songs, etc., given by Messrs. T. Short, J. Curtiss, R. Smith, W. Smith, Jos. Short, junr., J. Smith, J. Summerson, John Short, Master Smith, and Miss Smith. Mr. Collins feelingly replied, and thanked all present for their kindness during their stay. Each of the 60 persons assembled gave a present to Mr. and Mrs. Collins as a memento of their visit to the old country. Mr. and Mrs. Collins, who are residents of Helensburgh, and who have been away on a trip to England, are expected back next Saturday. Mr. Collins is a son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. Summerson, who came to Helensburgh in 1884 and are therefore practically, the oldest residents.

Family had left Jamberoo in early 1910 a few months before her husband was killed in a quarry accident.

The deceased, who was a native of Jamberoo, and who only left here some few months ago, was about 40 years of age. During his long residence in Kiama he followed the occupation principally of a quarryman, working at different times in the Kiama quarries and at Bombo. He was a quiet, steady man, and gained many friends among his fellow-workers in Kiama, who will deeply regret to hear of his untimely end… Deceased was a married man, and leaves to mourn him a widow and large family of nine or ten young children, the oldest of whom is yet but a lad, and sincere sympathy is felt for them and the deceased's aged mother in their bereavement.

Living at Jamberoo in 1903 Electoral Roll -Domestic Duties


A very old lady, whom our grandfathers knew as the “Irish Beauty,” died on Thursday, aged 96 years.

As Mrs. Mary Collins she came to Australia in 1844 from Limerick and settled in the bush at a town now known as Jamberoo. Sydney was still partly a penal settlement when she visited it, and she knew many stories of the old days when convict chains clanked along George-street. She grew up with Jamberoo for 76 years, and had 14 children, Mrs. McGuire, Keen-street, being one of the daughters. Her grandchildren numbered about 36 and the fourth generation was represented by three great-grandchildren. Her memory and energies were wonderful, and she danced a jig a month before her death. She was buried in the Rookwood cemetery on Friday afternoon.

Thus the “Sun” refers to the death of Mrs.  Collins, so well known throughout this district, who passed away this week at her daughter's residence in Sydney. Her witty tongue and kindly heart, her wonderful vitality, sense and humor, at such an age - for but a couple of years ago she thought nothing of walking to Jamberoo - made Mrs. Collins a kind of district possession that we were proud of. Now the long life has closed, not in decrepitude, but in a wonderful vigor of mind and body for such an age - and the figure, familiar from childhood to many district people, will be known no more.

The late Mrs. Collins left many friends.

Of true Christian character and devoted to her church, a kindly soul ever ready to do a neighbourly deed or friendly action, she deserved the best that life could give, and she got it in a wonderful health and a happy heart that made the best of things.

It seems (says the “Kiama Independent” of 5th June) a pity that she does not rest in the soil of the old district she loved so well, and of which she was its oldest inhabitant; but her last illness came while staying with her daughter in Sydney, and the burial took place in Rookwood cemetery.

Had the funeral been in Jamberoo a record attendance would have been given as a last token of the genuine liking and respect earned by one held in general regard. Northern Star (Lismore, NSW: 1876 - 1954) Thursday 24 June 1920 p 4

Late Mrs. Michael Collins.

After many weeks of intense suffering, the death occurred at the Kiama Hospital, at the age of 60 years, on Thursday, the 13th ult., of Mrs. Michael Collins, a well-known and highly respected resident of Albion Park, whose kindly, hospitable and charitable mature was recognised by all who knew her as a resident for some 62 years. Previous to her marriage at Kiama 41 years ago, to Mr. M. Collins (then overseer of Bombo Quarry), she was a Miss Mary Ford, of Jamberoo, and her mother predeceased her by some eight weeks at the great age of nearly 90 years. In the family during the last eight months four deaths have taken place, one brother (James) being killed at Bulli, when overseer in one of the coal mines; while another brother (Edward) died suddenly on the North Coast. The Ford family was one of the old pioneer families of Jamberoo, and at the funeral there was a representative gathering, including the Mayor, Town Clerk, and representatives of the council, from that district, and from Albion Park, where, as in other centres, Mrs. Collins' philanthropic works were well known and fully appreciated.

The coffin was taken to St. Peter's Church, Kiama, in which she was married, and the Requiem Mass, previous to the funeral, was largely attended.

The late Mrs. Collins was a devoted Catholic, a generous giver, and an untiring worker in church affairs. She was the soul of hospitality also, and friends, neighbours and strangers, too, were welcomeed to her home in Albion Park. For several years her health had not been good. She leaves a sorrowing husband to mourn tho loss of one of the best as a wife and life partner, and a very kindly memory in tho hearts of those who knew her well, for the good qualities that were hers.

Mrs. John Collins.

Mrs. John Collins, of Jamberoo, passed away a few days ago, at the age of 67. She was a native of Ireland, arrived in the State at an early age, and resided in Jamberoo over 50 years. Deceased was in her usual good health till about a week previous to her demise, and the deepest sympathy is expressed to her sorrowing husband and the following children, who survive viz., Annie, wife of Mr. Daniel Buckley (Sydney); May, wife of Mr. Walter Brennan (North Sydney); Miss Margaret Collins (Sydney), and Messrs. Denis Collins (Sydney), Cyril Collins (Albion Park), and John Collins, jun. (Jamberoo), all of whom feelkeenly the loss of one who was dear to them. She was a model wife and devoted mother. All the members of the family were at her bedside during her illness, and her daughters, with the assistance of kind friends, administered every attention possible under the sad circumstances. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon, and the cortege was a very long one, as a last tribute of respect.

Prior to interment in St. Matthew's Church Cemetery, Jamberoo, prayers were said in the church by Rev. Father McNamara, who also read the last sad prayers at the graveside. During the church ceremony Miss Condon, church organist, played the “Dead March” in “Saul.” A number of wreaths, telegrams and letters of condolence were received by the bereaved ones.— R.I.P.

One of Mt. Keira's most esteemed citizens in the person of Mrs. Mary Coltman, of Spring Street, died in Wollongong Hospital last Friday after an illness of about 12 months.

Aged 68 years she was a member of one of the pioneer families in that district— the McGoldrick's — and her death will be sincerely regretted by a wide circle of friends for her cheerful disposition had endeared her to all.

She was born at Mt. Keira, being the eldest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Patrick McGoldrick, and had lived all her life there.

She was a helpmate to all and was ever-ready to lend a helping hand particularly in cases of sickness. She was a true 'Florence Nightingale' and devoted her life to the sick, even to neglecting her own health in attending to the needs of neighbours and friends.

She married Mr. John Thomas Coltman at Bulli Catholic Church and the issue of the union was four sons— James (deceased), John, Arthur and Francis (deceased) and one daughter, Margaret. (Mrs. D. Ross, of Austinmer). Three of the sons, James, John and Arthur have been prominent rugby league referees.

She was a sister to Messrs. James (deceased), Patrick, Andrew, Charles (Sydney), Matthew and Peter McGoldrick, and Kate Mrs. Brown Keira), Sarah (Mrs. G. Brunero, Dapto) and Margaret (Mrs. Edwards).

The funeral on Surday afternoon left the home of her son, John, at 69 Keira road, for Wollongong Catholic cemetery. It was representative of all sections of the community and this representation, together with the wealth of floral tributes, was indicative of the great respect and esteem in which she was held. Rev. Father Mulheren administered the last sad rites Three rephews, two grandsons and a grand son-in-law acted as pall bearers.

William Lumsdaine, Alexander, fourth son of the late John Carfrae, Esq., of Swinton Hill, Burwood, to Grace Mariane Young, only daughter of the late Ouseley Condell, Esq., of Mount Ouseley, Wollongong. The Sydney Morning Herald 24 June 1863

Husband was in records for land grants from 1830 to 1837. He was insolvent in 1843 living in Elizabeth St Sydney and a gentleman. He had land grants for Willoughby and Bankstown 1836 to 1841.

Her husband was arrested for gross indecency in 1842 and sentenced to a year in gaol. She went to London in 1842 with her three sons. It is possible Grace is not her daughter but the acknowledged illigitimate daughter of her husband.

They may never have lived in the Illawarra but have lent his name to local geography.

MRS. ELIZABETH CONDON. Death has claimed one of the grand old pioneers of the South Coast, in the person of Mrs. Elizabeth Condon, who passed away at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. T. J. Maguire, 'Lisheen,' Market-street, Wollongong, on the 11th ult. At an early age she married the late Mr. James Condon, a well-known resident of Albion Park. During their early married life the late Mr. and Mrs. Condon conducted the Brighton Hotel at Kiama, also the Commercial Hotel at Albion Park, and subsequently went to Jamberoo. Some years ago the family took up their residence at Albion Park, and few who have recollections of the past will readily forget the hospitality of Mr. and Mrs. Condon and their family at their home, 'Myee,' with its picturesque surroundings, the scene of many happy gatherings. The late Mrs. Condon was of a very charitable disposition, pious, and most devoted to her family and Church. During her illness she was attended by the Rev. Father McDonnell, P.P., who is a very old friend of the family; also the Rev. Fathers Dempsey, Hannon, and Sheehan, and the Sisters of the Good Samaritan Order, visited her frequently. The late Mrs. Condon had been ailing for some three months, but until a few days before her death sanguine hopes of her recovery were entertained by the members of her family. The funeral, which left Wollongong by road for Albion Park, was a very large and representative one. The last sad rites were performed by the Rev. Father O'Sullivan in the church and at the graveside. The late Mrs. Condon is survived by a daughter (Mrs. T. J. Maguire, of Wollongong) and a son (Mr. W. E. Condon, of Albion Park), who mourn their loss. — R.I.P. Freeman's Journal (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1932)Thursday 9 October 1924 - Page 7

After a life time of 77 years spent in the Illawarra district, Mrs. Margaret Condon passed away at her residence, Crown St. West, Wollongong, last Sunday. She was born in Jamberoo, her parents being the late Mr. and Mrs. Edward Clancy, two of the very early pioneers of the district. When a young woman she married the late Mr. Patrick Condon and resided with her husband on his farm, which was situated between Albion Park and Jamberoo.

About thirty years ago they took up residence in Crown Street West, with their family of five sons and three daughters. The late Mrs. Condon was of a quiet and neighbourly disposition and she won the friendship and esteem of those who came in contact with her. She was quite active until about five months ago, when she became ill with influenza, and had hardly recovered, from that illness when she contracted another malady. Her husband predeceased her by about 11 years. The members of the family still living are Misses Florence and Lillian, who resided with their mother, Mrs. Cahill (Stella), of Daceyville, and Messrs. Joseph Hurtle (Strathfield), Aub. J. (Albion Park), Charles (Hurlstone Park) and John (Crookwell). One son, Patrick, was killed at Ypres. Mrs. Ryan, of Jamberoo, who has been residing at the Crown Street West residence for the past twelve months, is a sister, and Mr. William Clancy, of Summer Hill, is a brother.

The interment took place on Monday afternoon, the remains being conveyed to St. Francis Xavier's Church, where a short service was held, and afterwards to the Roman Catholic portion of the Wollongong cemetery.

A large number of local and Albion Park residents were present to pay their last respects to the deceased.

The Rev. Father Kelleher officiated at both services. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Friday 2 February 1934 p 8

HE LATE MRS. MAURICE CONDON. Mrs. Maurice Condon, a well-known resident of Balmain and Lakemba, passed peacefully away at her residence, 'Mimosa,' East Hills, on the 18th inst., fortified by all the rites of Holy Church. She was born at Kiama in 1853, and was married at Berry (then known as Broughton Creek) in 1875. Shortly afterwards she and her husband settled at Balmain West, now Rozelle. Here, for a quarter of a century, despite the cares and obligations inseparable to the rearing of a large family, she figured notably as an ardent worker in Church matters, and there must be many middle-aged people at this moment who can cast a kindly thought back to the days when she oft contributed to their youthful happiness by her untiring zeal and work in connection with children's picnics. About 18 years ago, the family removed to Lakemba, where she lived for 14 years, and then removed to East Hills, where, as at Lakemba, the well-kept home, with gardens and orchard, betokened the cultivated taste of what was inborn within her, namely, admiration of nature in all its beautiful forms. Throughout her life intense love of home and family were the dominant traits of her character. She leaves a family of five sons and three daughters. Of late her health had been failing, but it was not thought the end was so near. The attendance at the funeral (she was buried at Rookwood), and the very large number of the usual messages and tokens of condolence tendered to the bereaved husband and family, gave ample proof of the esteem in which the deceased lady had been held. — R.I.P.

Mrs. Sarah Isabella Conlon of South Lismore, sought a dissolution of her marriage with Thomas Edward Conlon on the ground of desertion.

The parties were married at Wollongong, on August 25, 1927, according to the rites of the Church of England. The petitioner stated that she had been married previously and there were five children of that marriage. There was no issue of her second marriage.

The petitioner, Sarah Isabella Conlon who resides at South Lismore, said that she first met Conlon in 1923, at Casino, where he was a horse trainer. Conlon had told her that he was born in Brisbane and had come to New South Wales as a boy.

After the marriage, Mrs. Conlon said, they were farming at Coorabell until her husband left her in 1933.

She said that her married life was unhappy as her husband abused her and struck her several times. On two or three occasions she left home, but Conlon, she said, pleaded with her to return.

On September 16, 1933, an argument arose over a letter she received from her daughter. Her husband struck her because she would not allow him to read the letter. She went to a neighbour's farmland would not return as she was afraid of her husband.

Mrs. Conlon said that she took out a summons for assault against her husband and later proceeded against him for maintenance. Her husband had left before October 25 and she had not seen or heard of him since.

Sergeant Stewart, of Mullumbimby, gave evidence that an order for maintenance had been made against Conlon in the Children's Court at Mullumbimby in October, 1933. Conlon also had been fined for assault. Warrants had been issued for Conlon respecting the maintenance order and payment of the fine for assault, but Conlon could not be located.

Evidence for the petitioner was given also by Stanley Ernest Akers, of C?.

His Honour found the issues proven and granted a decree nisi returnable six months.

The respondent was ordered to pay costs. Northern Star (Lismore, NSW : 1876 - 1954) Wednesday 21 September 1938 p 9

Mrs. Barbara Connolly, 83, at March (near Orange). The Land (Sydney, NSW: 1911 - 1954) Friday 26 May 1933 p 19

MRS. BARBARA CONNOLLY. Mrs. Barbara Connelly, whose death on Saturday at the age of 81 years was reported in Monday's “Leader,” resided at March for 60 years or more, and was a native of Illawarra district. After her marriage she came with her husband, Mr. William Connolly, who died twelve years ago, to Orange, then the terminus of the western railroad. They took over the Welcome Inn at March, the ruins of which still remain near the March Hall as a memorial of the pioneering days when bullock and horse teams penetrated the outback from the railhead. After three years in charge of the hotel, which was one of the bestknown on the western road, Mr. and Mrs. Connolly abandoned this business, in which they had been very successful, to take up farming at “Maryvale,” not far distant. A son, Mr. Thompson Connolly, still occupies the old farm and orchard. Rev. Wesley Stocks, in an oration at the last services for the deceased on Sunday, paid feeling tribute to the noble character of the passing pioneers, among whom the late Mrs. Connolly ranked so high. They had displayed great courage, tenacity and patriotism, and had a high place in the history of the Empire. The very large gathering of mourners listened with appreciation and concurrence to Mr. Stocks' remarks. Four daughters and one son are left. They are: Mrs. F. Brewer (March), Mrs. C. Kjoller (Clergate), Mrs. H. Boulton (Mullion), Mrs. Ern Griffith (March), and Mr. Thompson Connolly (March). One son and one daughter predeceased their mother.

Husband a settler


On Thursday last, March 21st, there passed away from earth and all she held most dear, at the ripe old age of three score and ten, one of our most worthy and respected citizens in the person of Mrs. E. Connors, relict of the late Mr. William Connors, who predeceased her 20 years ago on the Gilmore. The cause of death was senile decay.

Deceased was a native of Maitland, and came with her husband from the Illawarra district to Tumut 35 years ago, where she resided up to the time of her demise. All who had the pleasure of her acquaintance speak of her in the highest terms of respect. She was kindness in extreme, and a true emblem of all gifts—charity. A fond wife, she bore 13 children (8 sons and 5 daughters); of these but eight remain, viz : Messrs William, Benjamin, Michael and James, Mesdames Sharpe, Rushton, Coomes and Miss Mary Ann. Five of her family were present at her bedside when the relentless Reaper came.

Those unable to be here were her son James and Mesdames Sharpe and Rushton. During her long life she had enjoyed up to the last few years remarkably good health, but age and consequent infirmity told its tale. Drs. Mason and Browne did all they could to alleviate the troubles, as did her patient nurses, and she rallied several times till her soul went out to Him who gave it. She died peacefully after receiving the consolation of her church and spiritual advisers. Her loss has left an aching void this world can never fill. She leaves behind her a worthy family comfortably settled in life to mourn the loss of a kind, considerate mother, whose whole life was wrapt-up in their welfare, and her kindly advice will ever be remembered by them. Her remains were interred on Saturday last in the Roman Catholic portion of the old cemetery. The Tumut Advocate and Farmers and Settlers' Adviser (NSW: 1903 - 1925) Tuesday 26 March 1912 p 2

There passed away at her residence, “Albion Farm' Alstonville, Sunday, 12th inst., an early resident of the district in the person of Mrs. Alexina Cooke, wife of Mr. Alex. Cook, of Alstonville. Deep regret was felt throughout the whole community when the news became known, as the deceased lady was held in the highest respect and esteem. Her unbounded charity, thought fulness for others, especially those in distress, and her bright and cheerful disposition had endeared her to all, whilst, her many contributions to public functions were characteristic of her splendid generosity. She had a host of true friends, who mourn her death.

The late Mrs. Cook, who before marriage was Miss McKenzie, was born at Fairy Meadow, near Wollongong, 73 years ago, and came to Alstonville district about 30 years ago, and settled on the farm where she had lived ever since. Before coming to this locality the late Mrs. Cook Was a school teacher at North Bulli, Tongarra (near Albion Park) and Avoudale. The deceased was a great worker for the Presbyterian Church, and also for the show and all patriotic, charitable and public movements. During the war she worked indefatigably for the soldiers, and she received countless letters from them expressing their gratitude for her kindness and consideration for their comfort. Up to her last moments she had been actively engaged in this public spirited enterprise, and many a necessitous case had received liberal assistance without the facts being broadcasted to the public. Her husband survives her. There were no children of the marriage. The deceased lady was away for a fortnight in Sydney prior to her death, and was visiting a cousin, Mrs. H. Hicks, of Thirroul, South Coast, who was most anxious to see her. She said on stepping on to the jetty, at Byron Bay on her return that she had a most pleasant holiday, but before getting into the town of Byron Bay whilst walking along the jetty she complained of a sudden feeling of sickness. After resting for a while she was able to return home. After retiring in the evening she did not rise from her bed again.

The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, the cortege being one of the largest ever seen in the district. The interment took place in the Presbyterian portion of the Alstonville cemetery,

Mrs. .Caroline Sophia Cooke, widow of the late Mr. William Cooke, died at Murwillumbah on 30th October in her 80th year. She was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Robert Morrow, of Broughton Vale, near Berry, and was born in Sydney in 1850, but went to live in Berry district shortly after and there spentall her early life. She was married in 1869, and then went to live near Nowra, but came to the Richmond River in 1898. They lived at Eltham, but early in the present century Mr. and Mrs. Cooke made their home at South Lismore, where Mr. Cooke's death occurred in July, 1917. Then Mrs. Cooke made her home, with her daughter, the late Mrs. J. Black, later removing with her married daughters, Mesdames Black and Grey (Tillie) at Lakemba. She afterwards returned to the North, spending her declining months with her son at Lismore, and daughter, Mrs. A. McPherson, of River Street, Murwil lumbah, where the end came as stated, after an illness of two months, death being due to a general break up of the system. The late Mrs. Cooke was a sterling woman, a good specimen of the early colonists and pioneers of the South Coast who did much to mould the mother colony.

Of a kind, charitable disposition, she was ever ready to lend a helping hand to neighbours, and to assist in any worthy cause. Thus she was loved and respected wherever she and her esteemed husband lived. An earnest Christian and devoted member of the Methodist Church, she was attended by the Rev. Mr. Skinner of the Murwillumbah Church, who marvelled at her cheerfulness, patience and endurance during her trying illness. She leaves a family of six sons and two daughters, Messrs. Wm. Cooke - (Rous), George, Chris, and Wesley of Lismore, Richard, (stationmaster at Exeter) and Stanley of Roma, Q., and Mesdames Munro of Campsie, Sydney, and A. Mcpherson of Murwillumbah. One son, Robert, and two daughters mentioned, predeceased her. In addition there are 31 grandchildren, and five great grandchildren. One brother, Mr. W. H. Morrow, of Kiama, survives her and is 86 years of age. Mrs. Cooke's remains were laid to rest in Lismore, alongside those of her late husband, and son-in-law, Mr. John Black, in the presence of a large number of friends and relations.

Burning Fatality.


The Deputy Coroner (Mr. J. Kirby) held an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the death of Catherine Ann Cook, at the Court House, Wollongong, on Saturday morning last.

Russell Cook, husband of the deceased, deposed that his wife had been subject to fits tor the last 30 years.

On Thursday, September 23rd he went to work as usual, but at 9 a.m. he was recalled home by his son Robert, who said, 'For God's sake come home, mother has fallen into the fire.' He returned home, and found his wife severely burned, but conscious. She told him that she had fallen on to the fire, but could not explain howshe got there, and expressed a wish to see Dr. Kerr. He rang up Dr. Kerr, and had his wife conveyed to the Wollongong District Hospital. He was not with her when she died, but had seen her several times on the day the passed away. She had fallen into the fire previously without being able to explain anything of it.

Dr. John Kerr, Wollongong, deposed that he had known the deceased for many years, during which she was subject to epileptic fits. On the morning of September 23rd, shortly after 9 a.m. he had a telephone conversation with Russell Cook, and as a result, advised the immediate removal of Mrs. Cook to the Wollongong District Hospital, where he saw her shortly after her arrival. She was severely burned on the face, arms, chest, and upper part of the abdomen, and was suffering severely from shock.

The burns were chiefly of the second, and, in some cases, the third degree, i.e., blisters, and charring of the skin.

Dressings were applied and remedies given to relieve pain, and combat shock, but she sank, and died in about 21 hours. He was of the opinion that she died from shock consequent upon burns received from falling into the fire during an epileptic fit. A similar accident had occurred to her about 12 months ago, as a result of which she was an inmate of the Hospital for about six months.

Robert Thomas Cook, labourer (who appeared with both hands heavily bandaged) deposed that he was a son of the deceased, and resided with his parents at Cordeaux River. On the morning of Thursday, September 23rd, his mother appeared, as she always did, in the best of health. At about 8.30 he was about 100 yards from the house when he heard a terrible scream.

He ran back to the house, and found his mother lying face downwards in the fire, with the whole of the upper part of her body lying on the flames.

Her clothing was burning, and she was not conscious. He pulled her off the fire and rolled her in a blanket, burning his hands in so doing. He then ran for Mrs. Cutts, a neighbour, and, on her arrival, went for his father.

Mary Ann Cutts, Cordeaux River, deposed that she had gone to render first aid to Mrs. Cook as a result of what she had been told by Robert Cook. She had applied oil, and wad- ding, to the awful burns to somewhat alleviate the agony. The deceased was conscious all the time, and frequently spoke to her.

His Worship gave a verdict in accordance with the medical evidence. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 1 October 1926 p 5

Max, Hilton, Kevin and Colin Cook, and Misses Sheila, Lorna, Moya and Norma Cook, in the loss they have sustained in the death of an affectionate wife and mother, who is also mourned by a wide circle of friends.

The late Mrs. Cook was Miss Lottie Brownlee prior to her marriage, and was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs.: John Brownlee, of Albion Park, and sister of the Misses Brownlee of that centre, and of Mr. Frank Brownlee: She was married to Mr. Cook 31 years ago, and they resided in Dapto after their marriage, subsequently removing to the North Coast and residing at Bellingen and the Tweed River district, where the deceased made many friends owing to her neighbourly qualities. Seven years ago the family removed to the Illawarra district, and went to reside at Springhill, where Mr. Cook is engaged in farming.

The interment took place in the Catholic portion of the Wollongong cemetery, on Sunday afternoon, the Rev. Father O'Rourke officiating at the graveside. The funeral cortege was a representative one. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 2 April 1937 p 5

The death occurred on Friday last at her home, Victoria cottage, Belinda St, Gerringong, of Mrs. Jane Cooke, one of the oldest and most respected residents of the township.

The late Mrs Cooke had been in failing health for some time, and had been surrounded with the loving care and devotion of her children at Gerringong, especially her daughter Mrs. Williamson, with whom she lived. She also received and greatly appreciated the ministrations of the Revs S Taylor and J.W. A. Watkinson, and Mr. L Harris (Catechist) of the Church of England of which she was a devoted adherent, and for which she had worked so well in her years of health and activity.

After the war, she had presented to St. George's Church at Gerringong, a beautiful communion table in remembrance of her son, George, who had paid the supreme sacrifice at the front.

On the occasion of Archbishop Mowll's visit to Gerringong last year, he specially went to see Mrs Cooke, and this honour was a great encouragement to her. Born at Jerara the late Mrs. Cooke came to live in Gerringong 55 years ago and the cottage where she died was her original home. Her husband the late William Richard Cooke, engaged in the business of bacon-curing, at the time the old Boatharbour was the outlet for the produce of the Gerringong district, prior to the coming of the railway. Later he engaged in dairying and butchering, and in all his work Mrs Cooke was a great helpmate to her husband.

Some twenty years ago Mrs. Cooke commenced the guest house at “Billow View” and conducted this successfully until her retirement five years ago. She was also a foundation member of the Daybreak Lodge of the Order of Good Templars, and as long as she was able, she followed its activities with keen interest. Ever a lover of flowers, her garden was well-known in Gerringong.

The late Mrs Cooke was always ready to assist in any cases of illness or distress, and was a splendid friend and neighbour. She had reared a large family and was a devoted wife and mother. She leaves three sons, Messrs. Charles (Casino) Wallace (Hurlstone Park) and Harold (Gerringong) and three daughters Jessie (Mrs Ross, Gerringong), Agnes (Mrs Williamson, Gerringong), Edie (Mrs. A. J Dawes, Kiama).

A daughter also predeceased her. She had 27 grandchildren and one great grandchild. Of her own family four sisters survive in Mesdames Jackson (Ballina), Cooke (Alstonville), Wheatley (Lismore) and McGill (Croome); brothers being Major J Russell King, general manager of the Producers' Distributing Society, Sydney, and Mr Robert King (Maleny Qld) to all of whom sincere district sympathy is extended.

She was taken ill at her residence Dapto, last October and was conveyed to Valesco Private Hospital, Wollongong, and was eventually removed to Lewisham Hospital, where she had alwavs expressed a wish that she may end her life. She passed away as stated after about three months, of great suffering, which was borne with Christian fortitude.

The remains were conveyed by road, arriving at the R.C. Church Dapto, on December 28th, where a number of her most intimate friends, whilst on, earth, were waiting to pay their respects.

According to William Cooke’s obituary, Mr. and Mrs. Cooke were a model couple and their married life truly a happy one right until the very end. They were “straight as die” and they had brought up their children on the same model.


Though left the district for many years, interest centred in the long life of the late Mrs. William Cooke who died at Alstonville at the home of her son, Mr. Dixon Cooke on August 3rd. She celebrated her 97th birthday on July 27th her eldest son, Mr. Wm. Cooke, of Gerringong, who journeyed north for the occasion during many years, stayed on as she was so frail and was with her as she passed over to the other side - life's long journey, covering 97 years ended. The late Mrs. Cooke was born at Willow Farm, Kiama, the home of her father, the late William King, one of the earliest pioneers. Mrs. Geo. Dawes, over 85 years, and Mr. Dixon King, 89 years, are now the only surviving members of a family of wonderful longevity for the late Jno. King, of Kangaroo Valley was over 90, and Miss Alice King over 80 when they died. Mr. William Cooke predeceased his wife in 1918, and died in his 90th year.

In their early married life they farmed in this and the Berry district, and between 40 and 50 years ago joined in the trek to the North Coast where in the development of the river districts they and their children played a worthypart and gave fine citizenship.

Mrs. R. Coombes took seriously ill last week, and was confined to her bed, and Dr. Kirkwood is now attending on her. - And she is now showing slight improvements towards recovery. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950)Friday 17 July 1914 - Page 2

BALGOWNIE A very sad death occurred in Balgownie on Saturday, the l4th inst. when Mrs. R. Coombs passed away. Mrs. Coombs (who has been ailing for some time past, but was able to go about and attend to her household duties) was cleaning up the kitchen when she felt a giddiness coming over her. She was passing from the kitchen, which is detached from the house, and to reach the house she had a couple of steps to mount;, she reached the door, which she opened, but fell back, pulling the door to again; in falling, she struck her head against a brick chimney, severely cutting it, and became unconscious. Her husband, being in the house at time, was unaware of what had occurred until he heard a moan, and on opening the door he was horrified to see his wife lying in a pool of blood. He carried her inside and called for assistance. Although everything that Could be done by Dr. Kirkwood, and others, was done, death occurred about two hours afterwards. Mrs. Coombs and family have been residents of Balgownie for fifteen or sixteen years, and during that period made many friends. She had taken a great interest in the Parents and Citizens' Association and was always most anxious to assist in any matter tending to advance the education of the young people. Deceased will be sadly missed at her, home. She leaves a husband, son and daughter to mourn their loss, and these are deeply sympathised with. Mr. Coombs has for the past 9 weeks been off work through having seve ral ribs broken as the result of an accident in the mine.

Her husband was away at the time, and the old lady was found 24 hours later sitting in a chair. Mrs. Cooper never recovered, though under the care of Dr, Paul and nursed by Mesdames Grigg and Stacey. She received another stroke about 4 a.m on Thursday, and lapsed into unconsciousness, passing away at 5 30 p.m. Deceased lady was a native of Cardiff, Wales, and came to N.S.W. 34 years ago, residing 9 years at Narara.

BITTEN by A SNAKE.-On Thursday last, Martin Copas, a lad about twelve years of age, the son of Mr. John Copas, of Wollongong, was bitten by a black snake, whilst proceeding towards the Wollongong Racecourse. The boy says that he was looking up at some eagle hawks in the air, and he felt a pain in the calf of his leg, as of pins pricking, when he looked down and saw the snake stealing stealthily away. With a shrewdness astonishing in a lad of his years, he at once started off towards the town at full speed, for the purpose of obtaining medical assistance, and to keep up an active circulation of the blood. Several times on the road he felt drowsy, but he pushed on until he came to the residence of his parents, where he saw his mother, cautioned her not to follow him, and went straight on to Dr. Lambert's., This gentleman, fortunately, was at home, and at once scarified the spot where the fangs of the venomous reptile had entered, dressed the wound, cupped the patient, end with so much success that, we are happy to say, the boy was soon out of danger.

There were many sad hearts when the news was circulated that Mrs. Nora Costello had passed away at her home in Jamboroo on Monday, 16th ult. The deceased lady had been in failing health for some months, and was lovingly nursed by her two youngest daughters.

Mrs. Costello was born at Bansha, County Tipperary, Ireland, 66 years ago. Daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Kennedy, she had resided in Jamberoo for the past 43 years, and during that time she had been a most devoted and truly Christian mother, her chief interest being her home and family, by whom she will be greatly missed. Her kindly hospitality will be long remembered by those who had the pleasure of visiting her home, where everybody was made welcome. Her husband, the late Michael Costello, predeceased her by nine years, and she is survived by three sons, James (Jamboroo), Andrew (Ward's River), and Michael (Dubbo), and five daughters, Rose (Mrs. Christiansen, Woonona), Mary (Mis. Villa, Mudgee), Nora (Sister M. Attracta, of tho Little Company of Mary Lewisham), Margaret and Anne (Jamboroo). During Mrs. Costello's long Illness she was greatly consoled by visits from Fathers Malone and Irish (Kiama) and the Sisters of St. Joseph (Kiama). Her daughter, Sister M. Attracta, accompanied by Mother M. Perpetua (Lewlsham) visited Mrs. Costello a few weeks prior to her death, and this was a great source of happiness and consolation to her. All visitors were greated with her kindly smile of welcome, and her complete resignation to the Divine Will was truly edifying. Rev. Father Malone administered the last rites of the Church, and Requiem Mass was offered by Father Irish, who also officiated at the graveside. The pall-bearers were the three sons, James, Andrew and Michael, and her son-in-lay, Albert Christiansen.

The many beautiful floral tributes received testified to the love and esteem in which the late Mrs. Costello was held.

To know her was to love her. Catholic Freeman's Journal (Sydney, NSW: 1932 - 1942) Thursday 7 July 1938 p 12

One of the brave old pioneers of N.S.W. passed away when Mrs. Sarah Jane Costello breathed her last at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. W. Harley, Bangalow on Sunday, at the advanced age of 80 years. The deceased lady, whose maiden name was Loadsman, had the pleasure of meeting three brothers-John, of Shoalhaven, William, Charles, and one sister, Miss Loadsman, of Lindenale, during her last illness . She was the first white child born in Jamberoo, and came to the Richmond River In 1881. She was married at the age of 16 years to the late Edward Costello, from the west of Ireland, who died 34 years ago. The fruits of the marriage were 12 children, of whom five sons and six daughters are living. The sons are John and Stephen of Goonellabah.

Edward (Billinudgel, Charles, (public school teacher at Wollongbar), and Patrick (Dunoon). The daughters are Mrs; W. Harley (Bungalow), Mrs.P. Wilson (Dunoon), Mrs. T. O'Mara Brooklet, with whom lives Mrs. Costello. Mrs. McAuliffe (Tregeagle, and one single daughter, who is in a convent at Penrith. The descendants of this grand old lady include; 82 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.

Until her sight began to fall, about twelve months ago, the deceased was an omnivorous reader with excellent memory, and keen intelligence. She was well acquainted with ancient and modern writers, and took great interest in politics. She was, one of the flrst settlers in Robertson, and in the days when doctors were few and far between her kindly aid in cases of sickness was eagerly sought. The funeral on Monday, was largely attended, although it was  raining at the time, and the hour-3 p.m. -inconvenient for a dairying district.

Mrs. Gertrude Cowain, wife of Ald. H. Cowain who has resided at Goondarin Creek for many years, died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. J. Freestone, of Mackenzie Avenue, Wollongong last Friday, aged 53 years.

She had been in ill-health for the past six months, and, taking a bad turn on Friday, passed away a few hours later.

The late Mrs. Cowain was born at Plattsburg, Wallsend, and after her marriage to Mr. Cowain, came to live at Keiraville. Shortly afterwards they removed to Kurri Kurri, but soon returned to this district, and settled at Goondarin Creek, about 30 years ago, where Mrs. Cowain had lived ever since.

The late Mrs. Cowain was of a most kindly disposition. Her home came first to all things, but she was ever ready to give all possible assistance to her neighbours in cases of sickness. The esteem in whole she was held by a wide circle of friends was amply demonstrated by the large number that followed the remains for interment ill the Church of England portion of the Wollongong cemetery last Sunday afernoon. The Rev. E. Walker officiated at the graveside. Much sympathy is felt for Alderman Cowain, who is an Alderman of the Central Illawarra Council, Mrs. J. Freestone (Wollongong), and Mrs. W. Kirkley (Mount Keira), daughters, and Mr. Hughie Cowain, a son, in their sad loss. Mrs. Cowain is also survived by a sister, Mrs. F. Davies (Sydney) and three brothers, Messrs. J., G. and O. Parker, all of Corrimal. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Friday 5 December 1930 p 8

THE PICTURE ON THE WALL. William Edward Simpson, a labourer, asked for a divorce from Agnes Simpson, formerly Doyle, on the grounds of her adultery with Charles Cowlan, who was joined as co-respondent. Petitioner said he married the respondent in October, 1892, at Araluen, according to the Roman Catholic rites. They lived happily together till August, 1899. They were living at Captains Flat, near Braidwood and he left for Wyalong, where he worked for six months as a miner. From Wyalong he proceeded to Gundagai where he remained till February 1901. Here be heard certain things which caused him to go home unexpectedly. When he reached the house he knocked, and was admitted. He found the co-respondent in the house, and asked him what he did there. Cowlan gave him to understand that he was only on a visit. There was a bicycle there and a photograph of the co-respondent hanging over the bed. Petitioner asked his wife why she had the co-respondent in the house, and she answered that he had been visiting the place for some time. Petitioner went away, and he next saw them at Dapto together. A decree nisi was granted, to be moved absolute in three months. Evening News (Sydney, NSW : 1869 - 1931)Wednesday 25 November 1903 - Page 4

William Cox (65), a retired railway fettler, lately residing at South Parade, Auburn, was on Monday found dead in his bedroom with his throat cut in two places, while his wife aged about 40 years, lay groaning in the kitchen with her head battered.

Cox had a razor in his right hand, and a bloodstained boiler maker's hammer, weighing about 1lb., was beside the woman.

A butcher's boy called at the kitchen of the residence, formerly an hotel, at 10 o'clock, and saw Mrs. Cox lying in a pool of blood and groaning. He told a neighbor, and Dr. Furnival, Sergeant Wade, and Constable Barclay proceeded to the house, which, being too large for Cox's wife and family— two sons and a daughter— was also occupied by four other persons.

The other inmates of the house were upstairs at the time that the crime was committed, which accounts for the fact that a search had to be made for Cox, who was found dead in his bedroom. There was a deep slash on both sides of the windpipe, death being due to the cutting of the arteries, the windpipe not showing a cut.

Francis Albert Neave, a railway employee was in the room next to that occupied by Cox, but no unusual sounds were heard. Only a few minutes prior to the discovery of Cox Neave had been chatting with him. Cox did not appear to be agitated. He was fully dressed then, but when found in a pool of blood he was without his coat, vest, and shirt which lay on the bed.

It was gathered from these people that Cox had not occupied the same room as his young wife since the beginning of this year, and it is known that they had been quarrelling for a long time.

It is stated that last Saturday morning, when Cox was out, his wife got a hammer, and with big nails fastened the kitchen door on the inside, in order, it is assumed, to keep her husband out of the house. Just previous to his leaving the other occupants heard them quarrelling violently. When Cox returned he found the back door barred, but he got in through one of two front doors. The quarrel was resumed, but after a while matters quietened down.

Whether this incident was the direct cause of the tragedy is not known. Mrs. Cox died on Tuesday. The Braidwood Dispatch and Mining Journal (NSW: 1888 - 1954) Friday 12 September 1919 p 5

Maria Smith, formerly Craddock, sought a dissolution of her marriage with Thomas Smith on the ground of adultery with a certain woman. The parties were married at Wollongong on April 25, 1896, according to the rites of the Wesleyan Church. Petitioner gave evidence that she was a widow when she married the respondent. By her first marriage she had four children, one of whom was Maud Mary Craddock. Towards the end of November, 1900, her husband accused her of sending one of her children to watch “Maud and me.” Her daughter Maud Mary told petitioner something, with the result that she charged respondent with taking liberties with her daughter. He denied it. After that he left the house, and she had not seen him since. Maud Mary Craddock gave evidence that improper conduct took place between her and the respondent at the Cordo, near Wollongong. His Honor granted a decree nisi, returnable in three months.

He know that a deed of separation had been signed by the parties. — Complainant (recalled) stated that the deed of separation was signed, and it was agreed that the proceedings should be discontinued on condition that her husband paid so much to her, but the money was not forthcoming.— Defendant denied having used the whole of the language complained of, and stated that his wife had used certain abusive language towards him. He however, admitted having used a disgusting epithet. .. Since the separation order was issued by Judge Fitzhardinge his wife had lived with him, and had done so up to a fortnight ago. To Mr. Enright: He never on any occasion used the word admitted by him unless his wife abused him. He did agree to pay ..

INQUEST. — An inquest concerning the death of the wife of Mr. George Cram, of Mount Kembla, was held on Friday, before the coroner (Mr. C. F. Smith). The evidence given was in the main the same as stated generally in our last issue regarding the sad event. Mrs. Ramsay stated that she last saw the deceased alive about 8 o'clock on Thursday morning in her (Mrs. Ramsay's) own house. Shortly afterwards, a little boy belonging to deceased came and told her his mother wanted to see her. On entering the house, which was close by, she saw her hanging by a rope to the bed post, apparently dead. She (witness) gave the alarm, and help soon came to hand to take the body down. The deceased seemed somewhat peculiar previous to the occurrence, but witness never suspected that she would do herself any harm. During the two years witness knew her she lived happily with her husband.

Abraham Morris, deposed to having been aroused out of bed by hearing screams, and to finding the deceased hanging to the bed post, her feet just touching the floor. He cut her down, but found her pulseless and otherwise apparently dead.

Sarah Peace, stated that she went to Mrs. Cram's on the morning in question, to assist her to do some washing. She and one of deceased's little girls went for water, and while returning, after not being about more than five minutes, they heard Mrs. Ramsay screaming that Mrs. Cram had hanged herself. George Cram, deposed that he left home about half-past 6 o'clock on the morning stated, leaving his wife at home. She being in a melancholy mood he offered to stay with her, but she said she felt better and that there was no need for him to remain. Shortly afterwards he was sent for, and found her dead on his return.

She never threatened to take her life, but about two months ago she was unwell, and was attended by Dr. Lee, after which she appeared to get better. Deceased was about 30 years of age. They were married, had six children, and always lived happily together. Dr. Lee testified to having found deceased dead, evidently from the effects of suffocation. There was a mark on the neck, as if produced by a cord, shewn him. He attended her seven or eight weeks ago, when she manifested signs of insanity, though not seriously, and since which time she appeared to be quite well, so far as he had seen. The jury returned a verdict in accordance with the evidence.

It may here be added that the deceased wrote to a relative — Mrs. James Cram, of Mount Pleasant — on the Monday previous to her death, asking her to send one of her daughters to be with her in the house, as she was again troubled with a nervous feeling, and thought she would be better if she had someone in the house with her. On receiving this note, Mrs. James Cram was arranging to send for the deceased to live at her place until she would recover, but before those arrangements were completed they heard of the sad occurrence.

It appears that although the deceased and her husband lived most happily, she was given to despondency, which unfortunately culminated in her sad death. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 8 April 1884 p 21/2/

Mrs. Rachel Cram, who passed away at a Wollongong private hospital last Saturday, was a woman of kindly disposition and Christian character. She was held in high esteem by a wide circle of friends who to-day mourn the loss of a good friend and neighbour. The sympathy of the community goes out to her only child, Grace (Mrs. Colin McPhail, of West Dapto).

The late Mrs. Cram, was born near Singleton, being a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. J. Pankhurst, highly respected and successful pioneers of the Hunter River district, and a sister of the late Mr. A. S. Pankhurst, who for 18 years was the president of the Patrick Plains Shire, during which time he entertained the present King and Queen when they visited Australia as the Duke and Duchess of York.

The late Mrs. Cram, came to Wollongong in 1895 and for ten years was in charge of the late W. Timm's millinery business. She later married Mr. Ephriam Cram and went to live at Fairy Meadow. During World War I, she was a member of the Corrimal Red Cross and it was a matter of regret to her that her health prevented her from offering her services in World War II. For many years she was a stewardess for the work section at the Wollongong A.H. & I. Society's shows, of which her husband was a committeeman.

Through her upbringing she was strong in Methodism and when she first came to Wollongong was a member of the church and of the Ladies' Church Aid. After removing to Fairy Meadow she became active in establishing a Sunday School in that centre, where she was a teacher. She laid a foundation stone of the church that was later erected there. In 1928 she returned to Wollongong and again became a member of the Methodist Church, but latterly failing health prevented her regular attendance.

Her husband predeceased her in 1933. Besides her daughter Grace, she is survived by two sisters, Mesdames R. Moore, of Elderslie, Branxton, and G. Bowman, Winbourne Station, Manilla, and one brother, Mr. F. J. Pankhurst, Brinkburn, Branxton.

The remains left the Methodist Church for the Woronora Crematorium, after a service conducted by the Rev. Keeling, who referred to the high esteem in which she was held and to her wonderful Christian character. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 1 March 1946 p 10

SUDDEN DEATH.-An inquest was held on Saturday last, at Nymboida, before Mr. Alfred Lardner, coroner, touching the death of Lydia Cream, better known as Mrs Graham who had expired suddenly on Thursday last. It appears that the deceased and her husband retired to bed at half-past eight o'clock on Thursday night, and shortly after lying down deceased complained of pain in her chest, and said to her husband, “John I am going to die ” whereupon Cream immediately arose and sent the children for assistance, but before Mrs. Kelly, a neighbour, arrived the woman had expired. The time that elapsed between the deceased calling her husband and her death was about half-an-hour; deceased who was about fifty years of age had frequently complained of pain about the heart. The jury found that the deceased died from natural causes-supposed to be disease of the heart.

CRERAR. —August 6, 1904, at her residence, 565 Dowling-street, Moore Park, Elizabeth, dearly loved wife   of John McIntosh Crerar, aged 58 years. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW: 1842 - 1954) Monday 8 August 1904


We regret very much having to announce, at the age of 58 years, the death of an old Wollongongite in the person of Mrs. Crerar, the sad event taking place suddenly at 11 o'clock on Saturday night last. The deceased had not enjoyed the best of health for some time, but was always able to get about among her friends, and the end therefore came rather as a shock to the relatives. The family arrived from Scotland about tweuty years ago and first settled in Wollongong, at that time Mr. Crerar occupying the position of engineer on the tug stationed at this port. They resided in Corrimal-street up to about eight years ago, when the only son (Mr. J.M. Crerar) received an appointmont in the Sydney Water and Sewerage Board Office, which position he still holds, Mr. Crerar also being employed away from home at the time the family decided to move to Sydney, were they have remained ever since. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, the remains being interred at Waverley Cemetery. The deepest sympathy is felt for the relatives in their sad loss of a kind-hearted and affectionate wife and mother. Members of the family left to mourn their loss are the husband, Mr. J. M. Crorar Mrs. J. Rossborough, Wollongong; Mrs. R. Houslar, Sydney; Misses Bessie and Minnie Crerar, New Zealand and Sydney respectively; and Mr. J. M. Grerar, jun., Sydney.

Stabbing Affray at Bellambi

On Saturday afternoon last a man named Alfred James Critcher in a fit of passion assailed his wife (Flora Critcher) with a dagger-knife, stabbing her in the left side of the abdomen, and causing a dangerous incised wound. Immediately after attempting the life of his wife, he attempted to destroy his own in a simisla manner, and inflicted an abdomeminal wound with a pen-knife. It would appear that the man and wife had been living apart for some weeks, Mrs. Critcher having removed to her son’s residence, near Bellambi station, to escape the cruelty of her husband. While there she drew from her daughter’s employers part of the wages the young woman was in receipt of. Critcher either wished to secure the same money or was annoyed at his wife obtaining it, and sent a message to her, insisting upon her return to his home, which she was afraid to do in anticipation of his violence. The man afterwards called at his son’s house, where an altercation took place between himself and his victim, during which he stabbed the unfortunate woman, at the same time ejaculating “Here, take that!” and immediately after wounded himself. Critcher was afterwards arrested, and he and his victim were removed to the Wollongong Hospital, where Dr Thompson attended them. The prisoner while in the Hospital is under police surveillance. On the evening of the occurrence the woman lapsed into a very precarious state, and her depositions were taken, but a favourable change took place during the night, and she is now on a fair way towards recovery, although very much debilitated and weakened by the wound and consequent loss of blood. Critcher was never in a dangerous condition, his wound being comparatively small and shallow. Critcher is 45 years of age, a miner by occupation, and a native of England, and the father of a family of ten. The victim is 43 years of age, and a native of Parramatta.Illawarra Mercury 13 August 1889

Alfred was charged with, wounding with intent to murder and attempted suicide but was found not guilty on the ground of insanity, which was thought to be brought on by excessive drinking.

Unsurprisingly the couple split up after this and Alfred went to Liverpool, possibly in an asylum. Flora remained in the Illawarra.

Mr. John Croft, of Jardine Avenue, near Bulli beach, in the early hours of Thursday morning last, received a great shock when he discovered that his wife was dead in her bed. She had not previously been complaining of any illness, and a heart attack evidently carried her off while asleep.

The funeral took place from the residence on Saturday last, at 8.80 p.m. and a large number paid their respect by joining in the cortege to Bulli cemetery, where the remains were placed to rest in the Church of England section, Rev. L. Parsons officiating at the graveside. The minister also, conducted a service in the Church at Bulli prior to, the funeral.

The late Mrs. Croft, 57 years of age, was a native of Bulli, being the eldest daughter of late Edward and of Mrs. ('Granny') Evans. Besides the husband, she leaves behind a family of five daughters: Charlotte (Mrs. Elder, Sydney), Edna (Mrs. O'Keefe, Katoomba), Annie (Mrs. Stanley, Pennant Hills), Bertha (in Sydney), Alice (at home) - and three sons — George, Arthur and Charles.

Deceased was of the homely type and had proved a good wife and mother, being at all times ready to make any sacrifice in the interests of those around her, and she will be greatly missed, not only in the family circle but also among others who knew and valued her good friendship and kindliness. Sympathy goes out to the, bereaved husband and family. Also, to the well known and aged mother ('Granny,' as she is so popularly, known); and to deceased's sisters— Mrs. A. Gibson (Thirroul), Mrs. Boardman (New Zealand), Mrs. Turner (Paddington), Mrs. McGregor (Newcastle), Mrs. Stevens (Mortdale), Mrs. Flaven (Mortdale) —and the brothers — Mr. W. Evans (Wollongong) and Mr. Saxon Evans (Flemington). Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 19 July 1929 p 2

MRS. BRIDGET CROWLEY. The death occurred on July 15 of one of Temora's oldest pioneers Mrs. Bridget Crowley, relict of the late Michael Crowley, at the age of 88 years. With her late husband she was one of the earliest settlers of the district. For some years after the death of her husband Mrs. Crowley continued to conduct the farm on the Stockinbingal-road until advancing age made it imperative that she should retire, and she came to Sydney. She was a native of County Limerick Ireland.

John James Ranger was charged with neglecting to support his wife.

-Mr. , , solicitor, appeared for defendant, and Mr. Cronin, solicitor, for the plaintiff.

Mrs. Edith Agnes Ranger deposed that she was married to the defendant on the 8th December, 1896, at Granville, near Sydney; that l she only lived with her husband on the night of the marriage, as on the following morning he sent her up to Cockcle Creek, to reside with his mother, and went away to look for work. Complaintiff stayed with her mother-in-law about six weeks, and during that time received one letter from her husband, enclosing, 5s. Afterwards she received another letter, but never any more money.

As her mother-in-law told her to go, she went to Newcastle, and not having any money went to the Salvation Army, and stayed there till she obtained a situation in Newcastle. She stayed there about five months, but on account of her mother's death left, and went to Sydney, and stayed three months. Up till this time she had no idea where her husband was. She next went to Queensland and stayed 18 months, and came back to Sydney, to her married sister. She went to service with a lady in Parkl-road, Sydney; and was still residing at that place. She last saw her husband at Adamstown. He said he had to keep a better-woman than she was. She had heard her husband was living with another woman

, and that he was now working at the, Cockle Creek, and earning £5 12s'per fortnight. She wanted an order made for 15s..per.week, as, on account of bad health, she was unable to stay long, at any one place.

'Winde'yer: She remembered the police court proceedings at Newcastle. She was not at that time in an interesting condition. She had never had a child. She was living with a man, his wife, and two children at Adamstown. She did not say in the police-court she got 10s per week from another man, who was the father of my child. She did not, on the 17th March, 1898, register the birth of a male child at Adamstown. She was not confined by a nurse named Mrs. Regan at Adamstown.

She did not at the police court, in the presence of her husband, say that she did not want any support, or anything further to do with him. That answer was equally true as the answer about not having registered the birth of a child.

Mr. Windeyer repeatedly warned the witness what she was about, and to be careful of her answers.

At this stage Mrs. Regan and Mrs. Hill, of Adamstown, were called in, and although at first inclined to still hold out; the complainant at acknowledges that she had a child, and had registered it at Adamstown.

Mr. Cronin then announced that he must withdraw from the case.

Edith Hamilton was called, but merely deposed that Mrs. Ranger had lived with the defendant's mother it Cockle Creek about six Months. '

John F. Ranger depdosed th.. he was the defendant, and that when he married the complainant he was out of employment.

He sent his wife to his mother's residence, at Cockle Creek, where she could hve remained till now if she had liked. When witness came back to Cockle Creek he found that his wife had left him was residing with another man at Adamstown. He went there and saw his Wife and told her he had now plenty of work and money, and could make…

Mrs. Hill deposed that she was living with her husband at Adamstown. She knew the complainant as a Mrs. Earl. She was residing at Adamstown about five months with a man named Robert Earl, and always answered to the name of Mrs. Earl. She remembered the child being born, and as Earl wanted to abuse the complainant witness took her to her own home, till she went away to Sydney.

The order was refused. Newcastle Morning Herald and Miners' Advocate (NSW: 1876 - 1954) Friday 23 February 1900 p 6

CROSSED IN LOVE-At the Kiama police court, on Tuesday, Elizabeth Cunningham, of Shellharbour, was charged with being of un-sound mind Constable Dunlop related the circumstance of the girl being given into his custody on the above charge by her employer, Mr P Collins, and of his bringing her in a vehicle to Kiama. Mr P Collins said the girl had conducted herself properly in his service for the last three years until lately, when she had cut some of her hair off and taken poison (blue stone water), he administered an emetic, and fatal consequence was thus averted, but he had reason to believe the girl was of unsound mind, and incapable of taking care of herself. Dr Tarrant, who had been called in, after describing the circumstances of his being sent for, the condition of his patient, and her subsequent treatment, said he did not think the girl had taken a sufficient quantity of the poison to cause death, and was of opinion that, though in a melancholy state of mind at the time, she was of sound mind. The prisoner had no appearance of insanity, and admitted her conduct was the result of disappointment in love matters The charge was dismissed -Evening News, Jan 6 The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser (NSW : 1843 - 1893) Thursday 12 January 1871

BALLINA, Sunday. — The funeral of Rebecca Cupitt wife of Mr. Cam Cupitt, of Ross Street, Ballina, who died at the Lismore Base Hospital last Friday night, took place at the Church of England portion of East Ballina cemetery this afternoon at the conclusion of a service conducted at the church by the Rev. W, Burvill, who also officiated at the graveside.

The late Mrs. Cupitt was born at Old Trafford, England, 68 years ago and came to Australia with her parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. John Hardy when 11 years of age to reside at Marrickville, Sydney.

She was married to Mr. Cam Cupitt on the South Coast about 46 years ago and shortly afterwards came to reside in the Ballina district, where, with the exception of 13 years in Queensland, she had since lived. Some years ago Mrs. Cupitt was seriously injured when a tree fell on her while fishing at Teven Creek. As a result of the accident she had been in indifferent health up to the time of her death. She was taken to Lismore Base Hospital about three weeks ago, when she underwent a major operation. Despite her failing health Mrs. Cupitt was of a cheery disposition. During the last war she was an ardent worker in many patriotic efforts. It was her custom twice a week to visit the schools and teach the pupils knitting. During the present war she worked, as much, as her health would permit, in patriotic efforts. She was also an active worker in the Church of England. In addition to the widower, Mrs. Cupitt is survived by two sons and one daughter. The sons are Messrs. Ernie Cupitt (Thangool, Qld.) and Jack Cupitt (Australian Military Forces). The daughter is Mrs. H. A. Kirkland (Booyong). Nineteen grandchildren survive. Brothers are Messrs. Gay and Raymond Hardy (Sydney). Many wreaths were forwarded.

A magisterial inquiry was held here on Thursday, touching the drowning of a child named Rose Foster, two years and two months old. Mary Jane Curran, wife of Michael Curran, deposed deceased was her only child, to her previous husband Henry Foster : about 4 o'clock on the previous day she wet down into the bush for a few sticks, leaving Rose playing about the house missed the child on returning and made search for her; witness' sister discovered the body in the well on her (witnesses’) premises; the lid, a very light one, was off ; tried to restore animation ; had another child drowned in a well nine years ago ; when her first husband died she had £50, and before marrying Curran placed it in the Savings Bank in her child’s name; it is there yet; it was about twenty minutes from the time she saw the child alive to the time the body was recovered from the well. Jessie Whitty, sister of previous witness, deposed to finding the child in the well, floating face upwards ; the lid was off. Arthur Allen deposed to hearing screaming, and on investigating learnt that the baby was in the well ; hooked the child out ; it seemed to be dead. — Mabel ?enehan, who helped to get the child out of the well, deposed it was dead when taken out of the water.—Constable Tonkins deposed to seeing Dr. Park trying to restore animation ; there, was about two feet of water in the well ; the child could have lifted the lid off. A verdict of death through accidental drowning was recorded.South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954)Saturday 18 July 1903 - Page 10

AFFILIATION CASE. James Curry was charged by Mary Jane Gibbs with refusing to contribute towards the support of his illegitimate male child. This case was continued from the previous Monday. Mr. Cox for complainant, and Mr. Lysaght for defendant, who pleaded not guilty. Evidence was given by George Wingate, William Weeks, and defendant, the latter denying the paternity of the child. Mr. Lysaght addressed the Bench, contending that the information must be dismissed, as there was not sufficient evidence upon which to base an order. Mr. Cox replied, maintaining that the charge against defendant had been clearly proved. Defendant was ordered to pay 5s per week for twelve months into the hands of Senior-sergeant Sykes, also to pay 16s for two witnesses, £2 2s professional costs, and 13s costs of court. He was directed to enter into his own recognisance in the sum of £5 and find two sureties in a like sum for the fulfillment of the order ; in default, to be imprisoned in Wollongong gaol until the order was complied with.

TO WILLIAM CORNFORD, late of Wollongong, in the colony of New South Wales,Plasterer.

Nearly five years ago you left me to maintain myself and our seven young helpless children, since when I have several times advertised for you but in vain.I now give you Notice, that it is my intention to be Married again at the expiration of Three Months, unless in the meantime, you return and claim me as your Wife. Dated this 38th day of July, 1860. LUCY CORNFORD. Empire (Sydney) 2 August 1860

WLLIAM CORNFORD forsook his family five years ago, and with but one exception has not been heard of since-that was very soon after he left. He is supposed to be dead. His wife, or widow, or worse than widow, earnestly begs information from any one who can give it, respecting him. He was tall in person, walked with a stoop, would appear to be fifty years of age, but not so old. He was a plasterer by trade, and of very drunken habits. Information sent to LUCY CORNFORD, Wollongong, will much oblige. The Sydney Morning Herald 29 May 1860

Quite a gloom was cast upon the township, of Helensburgh last Saturday, when it became known that two old residents had passed away - John Cutts, aged 76, .. Lionel Cutts came to Australia in 1850, and during his vigorous years followed railway works. Unfortunately he has been an invalid for some years, and the struggle for existence has had to be borne by his devoted wife, who, sad to Say, has also been laid up for several months. Although the deceased had been 57 years in Australia he could not receive an old age pension because he had not continually resided in N.S.W, for 25 years. In a few months more he would have been entitled, to the pension. In face of this it is quite clear that our supposed humanitarian laws are greatly in need of amendment. Mr. Cutts was a very old resident of the South Coast district and was highly respected by all who knew him. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Saturday 5 October 1907 p 1
