Husband was killed in the Mt Kembla mine disaster. Her husband came to Australia with the assistance of his uncle Peter Carr.


PRESENTATION- On Saturday, 7th instant, Mrs. Gallagher was entertained at a social evening at the hall, Kembla Heights. There was an exceptioually large attendance, and the hall was specially decorated for the occasion. The object of the gathering was to make a presentation to Mrs. Gallagher and her children prior to their departure from Kembla to Wollongong. After the toast of 'The King' had been honored; that of 'Mrs. Gallagher and Children' was proposed by the chairman (Mr. William Wilson), who spoke very highly of the noble character of Mrs. Gallagher during her residence at Mount Kembla, which extended over thirty years. On behalf of the residents, the chairman presented Mrs. Gallagher with a handsome silver tea and coffee service on an oak tray, Misses Rose and Kate Gallagher each received gold brooches, and Mr. E. Gallagher a fountain pen; and stud box.

Mr. Geo. Phillips responded on behalf of Mrs. Gallagher, and in doing so referred to the excellent work performed by that lady during her residence at Kembla. Her kindness in cases of charity and sickness would ever be remembered, and as a Church worker her place would be hard to fill. The presentation that, night fully demonstrated the high opinion the residents had of Mrs. Gallagher, and she, with her charming family, would be missed very much. 'The Ladies’ was proposed by Mr. F. Buggy, and responded to by Mr. C. Johnson. After refreshments had been provided dancing was indulged in, and one of the most enjoyable functions ever held at Kombla concluded at midnight. The next day Mrs. Gallagher and family were entertained at a picnic at Stuart Park, at which a large number were present. Mrs. Gallagher is taking up her residence at Garden Hill.

She had no witness to corroborate her own statement as to the paternity of defendant; the cause could not, therefore, be entertained or gone into, as the law strictly provides that no man shall be deemed the father of an illegitimate child, on the testimony of the mother alone.

In the Divorce Court, on Monday, before his Honor Sir William Windeyer, the case of Dobinson v. Dobinson came on for hearing.

Mr. Ralston, instructed by Mr. Woodward, appeared for the petitioner, Joseph Dobinson. There was no appearance for the respondent, Emily Dobinson, or co-respondent, Robert Thomas Benjamin.

Petitioner and respondent were married in August, 1877, at Wallsend, and sometime afterwards they went to Mount Kembla, where petitioner started a store.

In 1885 he employed the co-respondent as assistant in the store, and in 1888 having a suspicion that an intimacy had existed between his wife and co-respondent who had then left his service, he intercepted a letter from him to his wife; in consequence of the contents of the communication he refused to live any longer with respondent, and subsequently he obtained ample proof of her misconduct.

The decree nisi for dissolution of marriage was granted. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Thursday 4 June 1891 p 2

.As briefly stated last issue, Mrs. John Gallen passed away, to her rest after many years of suffering, on Thursday last. For some 25 years she was a martyr to the most severe form of rheumatism—unable to move in the slightest degree for many years.

In her great affliction she has had the devoted care of her daughters—from Miss Lily Gallen, who previous to her death, gave unwearied care to the invalid, and afterwards from Miss Maud Gallen, who as devotedly attended to her mother, Mrs. Slinn who lived near, assisting in the arduous nursing duties, and since Mrs. Head's return from active service as a nurse at the war, her experience and skill has been for her mother's comfort also.

The late Mrs. Gallen had a beautiful character and her great affliction was born with a wonderful patience and fortitude. She longed for rest, that the burden of nursing might be removed from those she loved, and who gave her such loving care, but unmurmur'ng, regarding her own great trial.

She was previous to her marriage with Mr. John Gallen (who pre-deceased her a few years ago), Miss Margaret Thorburn, daughter of Mr. W. Thorburn, a member of a well-known and highly esteemed family on the South Coast—and was born at Jamberoo where her parents then lived, 78 years ago. Mrs. Gallen leaves a family of six to mourn her: two sons in Messrs. John and Morris Gallen, and four daugnters Margaret (Mrs. Slinn), Kate (Mrs. Head), Vida (Mrs. Neville Griffiiths), and Miss Maud Gallen,

The funeral took place the following afternoon, the Rev. G. M. Tor- bett offliciating, the interment at the Presbyterian cemetery at North Kiama. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Wednesday 4 February 1920 p 2

Mrs. William Gardiner, Helensburgh

It is with much regret that we announce the death of Mrs. Gardiner, which occurred at her residence, Helensburgh, on January 10, in the 77th year of her age. Mrs. Gardiner was a native of the County Tyrone, Ireland. She arrived in Australia about 50 years ago. After her arrival she lived for several years in Bulli, where she was well known and highly respected. About 34 years ago her husband took up a selection about two miles outside the present town of Helensburgh, and there Mrs. Gardiner resided till her death. Mrs. Gardiner was a most sincere and devout Catholic, as was evidenced by the fact that for many years she walked to Mass from Helensburgh to Wollongoug, a distance of about 22 miles. Often she left her home at 2 o'clock on Sunday morning, and accomplished that, journey whilst fasting. Later on, when a church was built at Bulli, she was comparatively happy in having Mass celebrated within 15 miles of her residence. About 13 years ago she rejoiced at the erection of the little church at Helensburgh, which she attended most regularly up to a tow weeks ago. During her illness she was attended by the Rev. Father T. P.Dunne, of Bulli. She was the mother of 11 children, nine of whom survive her, On Friday morning her remains weve taken to Helensburgh Church, where Mass was celebrated for the repose of her soul in the presence of a large congregation.

The funeral took place in the afternoon, and was attended by residents of Helensburgh and Bulli. Rev. Father Dunne officiated at the grave.

Among the chief mourners were Messrs. P. K. Gardiner and Matthew Gardiner (sons), Mrs. T. Walsh (daughter),

The death of Mrs. Mary Garrett, of Robertson, at the age of 85 years, will be regretted by a large number of residents of this district. She was a member of one of the pioneering families of the district, and throughout her life had shown a readiness to help others which was typical of the women of her generation.

A daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. Shipman, Mrs. Garrett was born at East Kangaloon. She married Mr. Fred Garrett who was a skilled bushman and farm worker and was regarded as the best ploughman in the district. After spending some years at Glenbrae, near Wauchope, and later residing at Lismore, Mr. and Mrs. Garrctt returned to Robertson thirty years ago and lived there ever since.

A skilled midwife, Mrs. Garrett was present at the birth of many of the older residents of this district. She readily gave her services, often without payment, and her cheerful, jovial personality brought comfort to many of the people whom she nursed back to health. As soon as she heard of illness in a home she was the first to offer her services, and devoted her life to assisting others.

She is survived by her husband, now 91 years of age, one daughter, Mrs. Caffrey (formerly of Bowral. now of Sydney) and one son, Mr. H. E. Garrett (Sydney), to whom we extend our sympathy. The Southern Mail (Bowral, NSW: 1889 - 1954) Friday 26 July 1946 p 5

They settled at “Crawler Forest”(later called “Crawley Forest”), a few miles south-west of Kiama, up the mountain between Mount Pleasant and Saddleback.

In 1861, the Lands Act of Sir John Robertson made possible “Free Selection Before Survey” of what became known as the “Yarrawa Brush” country around the Wingecarribee Swamp, and much of this Free Selection took place in the Robertson-Kangaloon areas which were small villages that came into existence as the settlement in the Yarrawa Brush developed.

In 1863, Matthew Gay moved with his family to this “New Illawarra on the Tableland”and so forwarded to the Department of Lands his application for Conditional Purchase of selections he made in the Parish of Kangaloon in the vicinity of Mount Murray – property which he later called “Ocean View” because of its magnificent views of mountain, lake and coastline.

The death of Mrs. Mary Gearside which occurred at her home in Ellen Street, on Saturday last, removes a fine old lady who has resided in Wollongong for over 35 years. Mrs. Gearside, who was 74 years of age, had enjoyed fairly good health until about a week prior to her death.

Then a sudden illness overtook her and brought about the end much, to the surprise of her family who were naturally overcome with grief at her sudden death. Her husband, the late G. H. Gearside, pre-deceased her by 19 years. The issue of the union was seven children, six of whom survive. The daughters are Francis (Mrs. Whitebrook, (Wollongong), Beatrice (Mrs. E. Clarke, Wollongong), Thelma (Mrs. F. Johnson,

Wollongong). The sons are Percy (Bankstown), Claude (Leura) and George (Lithgow). There are 19 grand children and one great grandchild.

Deceased was a consistent worshipper at St. Michael's Church of England, where all the family were christened. She was a good neighbour, and a loving wife and mother, who devoted her life to the welfare of her children. The remains were laid to rest in the C. of E. cemetery on Monday, and prior to the interment a brief but impressive service was conducted by the Rector,

Rev. Edward Walker, who also officiated at the graveside. He mentioned that the deceased was the first woman he had called on (a sick call) on his arrival at Wollongong over 10 years ago. The pall-bearers were

Messrs G. Oxley, H. Caisley, C. Johnson, C. Large, G. House and O. Thomas. Many beautiful wreaths bore eloquent, testimony to the esteem in which deceased and her family are held. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 1 February 1935 p 6

For some years Mrs. Geoghegan was postmistress at Llandilo, a position which she relinquished in 1920. Her husband died in 1941.

Husband was a policeman who arrived on the Exodus (a ship which consisted solely of policemen and their families) under agreement to serve as a policeman in NSW. Many of the men under this agreement refused to work as policemen once they had arrived.

The death occurred at Sutherland on the 18th inst., of Mrs. Isabella Gibson, relict of the late Mr. John Gibson, and mother of Mr. F. H. Gibson of Sutherland, and the Rev. S. J. Gibson, of Sydney. The deceased was in her 95th year and on her arrival in N.S.W. with her husband in 1855, settled near Wollongong when the country was in its virgin state. Blacks were numerous in those days, and it was said to be an interesting sight to see them come into town on Queen's birthday for blankets.

The only means of reaching Sydney at that time was by small steamers and by a primitive road winding down Mt. Keira, The deceased retained her memory to the last. Mr. C. Gibson of Church St., is a grandson. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Friday 29 August 1919 p 2

It is our sad duty to record in this issue the death of one who exceeded the 'allotted span of three score years and ten.' We refer to Margaret Ann Gibson, relict of the late William Gibson, who passed peacefully away at Clifton at 6 a.m. on Monday, at the age of 83 years. Death was, of course, not unexpected, for senile decay had been playing its part, and Mrs. Gibson was confined to her bed for two months. The death of a son, Jim, last August certainly proved a severe blow to her. However, the family were able to visit their mother in her last days, and the meeting at the bedside was remarkably impressive, particularly in the case of the youngest, Hamilton, of Bulli, of commendably charming manner, and to whom, as the youngest, the mother must naturally have been anxious to have at her bedside.

The funeral took place at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, at Scarborough, the remains being interred with those of husband and son, who predeceased her. Rev. Leland Parsons (C. of E.) officiated at the graveside.

The late Mrs. Gibson with her husband arrived in Australia from North of Ireland 66 years ago. They went first to Dapto (N.S.W.), where Mr. Gibson engaged in farming pursuits for 20 years, and where all of the family were born. It was then (about 46 years ago) the family removed to Clifton, and the father died there about 12 years ago. Members of the family remaining are — William (Woonona), Susan (Mrs. Johnston), Edward (Bellambi), Allan and George (Scarborough), and Hamilton (Bulli). On all sides can be heard expressions of regret that age has to sever from a family and a community such a noble mother and such a lovable character as the late Mrs. Gibson, who earned the respect of such a wide circle of friends.

This paper joins in the sympathy extended to the bereaved family, thethe youngest of whom we know so well — Mr. Hamilton Gibson is the Postal Assistant at Bulli, and not only is he so courteous but he is of the genuine and Christianlike type.

Husband a Methodist minister


In the passing hence of Mrs. Gilby, on Friday, 2nd July, the Church has been bereaved of a faithful member of more than 55 years standing.

Mary Meyer was born at Mudgee 68 years ago. Her parents had come from Europe a few years before. In the new home in Australia they soon found themselves 'at home' also in the Methodist Church. Their daughter, trained for God from infancy, became a disciple of Christ and joined the fellowship of His people in her early youth. She soon began to give Help in that fellowship as well as receive it. At the age of fifteen years she became organist of the Primitive Methodist Church at Mudgee, and held that position until, a few years later, she was united in marriage with the Rev. Samuel Gilby. Then, for nearly 45 years, her life was lived under the conditions of the Methodist itinerant ministry.

Mrs. Gilby was content, like her beloved husband, to do God's work patiently and faithfully in the circuits to which it was the will of Conference to send them. Some of those circuits were in such circumstances as to require of the minister and his family that they should ' do much/and do without a good deal. But whatever of deprivation circuit life might at any time require, Mrs. Gilby bore it courageously without complaining. To courage in her own troubles was joined comfort for other people in theirs. There are hundreds of homes in which the sympathetic helpfulness of Mrs. Gilby's friendship will be long remembered. ,

After Mr. Gilby's call to higher service in 1924, Mrs. Gilby spent most of her time visiting one or other of her four children, still giving, as well as receiving, comfort and help. Painful illness began to develop early in this year. Hospital treatment only revealed the hopeless ness of the case. Mrs. Gilby was brought to the home of her daughter, Mrs. T. Stewart, and there met the last enemy with patient courage and faith. The loving care of those whom she had loved and cared for, comforted her; God's grace sus tained her; and now, Mrs. Gilby has gone ' ' to be with Christ, which is far better.'

Living at Helensburgh 1903 Electoral Roll- Domestic Duties. Husband a storekeeper from 1884


A sweet, kindly, gentle woman passed away at Helensburgh on Sydney evening in the person of Mrs. Gill, and the town and, district is the poorer by her passing. She had led a very active life, and retained all her faculties, up to the end, which was totally unexpected. Notwithstanding that she was 86 years of age, she transacted all her business, and on the day prior to her death, was engaged in discussions concerning her property with business people. On Sunday her daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and,. Mrs. J. B. Wells, of Wollongong, visited her, and, although, she was chatting and talking with them, it was seen that she was not well, and a doctor was called in, but he, did not anticipate any serious results. However, the end came in the evening.

Thelate. Mrs. Gill was born at Carlisle, the border town so famous in English, history, her maiden name being Miss Mary Ann Jennings. When 24 years of age she came out to Australia, first going to Queensland. Four years after her arrival she, was married to Mr. William Gill. Shortly after their marriage they decided to move to New South Wales, and with the old pioneer spirit, packed their worthly wordly possessions in a caravan and started out on their travels. They stopped at Tamworth for a time, and eventually settled at Como, where they remained whilst, the railway bridge was in course of construction.When boring operations were started at Helensburgh by the Metropolitan Coal Company Mr. Gill moved to what is now the town of Helensburgh, and his was the first house erected in the town.

He subsequently started a general storekeeping business there, and acquired, a good deal of property. It was most interesting to hear the late Mrs. Gill tell of the early days of Helensburgh. She attended the first religions service in the township, which was conducted in the open air, under a gum tree, the Rev. Hugh, Walker Tavlor officated. At the death of her husband, the late Mr. William Gill, the Storekeeping business was relinquished by Mrs. Gill who lived retired in the township ever since.

The remains were interred in the C.E portion of the Helensburgh ceme tery on Tuesday the Rev. Kennedy officiating.

Mrs. Gill, is survived by three daughters, the only members of her family, viz., Mesdames R H McKenzie (Hurstville), J.F. Harper (Arncliffe), J B Wells (Wollongong), 12 grand children, and 4 great grandchildren. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 12 September 1930 p 15

JAMES GILLESPIE, a stalwart miner, was charged in the Police Court today with assaulting his wife, Abigail Gillespie; also with leaving her without maintenance. It was asserted by complainant, who bore a black eye, that accused kicked and thumped her on Tuesday night; also that he destroyed all her clothing but that in which she stood. She admitted, in examination by her husband, that while he was in the lockup she went with a friend to the moonlight picnic. Florrie Gillespie, a young daughter of the parties, corroborated Mrs. Gillespie's evidence in certain particulars. As it appeared there were other witnesses, who had not been summoned, the case was adjourned until 11 o'clock tomorrow. Barrier Miner (Broken Hill, NSW: 1888 - 1954) Friday 29 November 1901 p 4

Husband a miner and freehold farmer


An admirable and lovable, old lady, in the person of Mrs. Jane Elizabeth Gilmore passed on at her home. Figtree, on Saturday afternoon. The grand old lady had only been ill for three days prior to her death. Born at Berkeley 86 years ago, on the 26th of last month, the venerable old lady had lived all her life, within 10 miles of the place where she was born. As a young, woman she was very popular for her jovial character. After her marriage with the late Mr. John Gllmore, she went to live at Mt. Keira, where her husband entered into farming. Leaving Mt. Keira 53 years ago, the family went to live at Figtree, the Gilmore home fronting the Prince's Highway at the foot of the Cross Roads Hill.

It was here that deceased lived for the remainder of her life. Mrs. Gilmore was quite interesting when recounting the early life of the district, right up to her end, and she remembered the time when she had to walk to Wollongong to shop and carry the house hold commodities home. She was a most charitable lady, and hundreds were the times that she left her home and children to nurse her friends. In this direction she was never known to refuse. The deceased always took a great interest in the Church of England at Figtree, which she and her family helped to build and furnish.

During the last 30 years Mrs.Gilmore was never known to miss attending a funeral of any resident, at which she always drove her own horse and sulky. As a mark of esteem and appreciation for her interest in the Church, a memorial service was conducted on Sunday by the Rev. Terry. On Monday, just prior to the funeral, the remains were conveyed to the Church, where a service was held. The funeral was largely attended, and fully demonstrated the high opinion held of the deceased lady and her family by the residents of the district. The remains were laid to rest in the Church of England cemetery at Wollongong, the last sad rites being conducted by the Rev. T. Terry. Her husband predeceased her 23 years ago. Amongst the large number of wreaths was one from the Unanderra Football Club. The deceased was the mother of 16 children, eleven of whom are still living, and to the bereaved we extend our sympathy. The family left to mourn the loss of a most lovable and devoted mother are Mrs. McAndrew, Mrs. Burke (Wollongong), Mrs. Adams (Camperdown), Mrs. Wade (Hurstville), Mrs. F. E. McGoldrick (Rosemont); Mrs. Brady (Granville), Mrs. Crozier (Mangerton), and sons George (Sutherland). Robert (Camperdown) and Harry and Charlie (Figtree). There are also 31 grand children, and 20 great grand children. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Friday 25 September 1931 p 6

An inquest was held at the Mount Keira Hotel yesterday afternoon, before Mr. B. Lipscomb, coroner, touching the death of a young woman named Jane Elizabeth Gilmore, which took place in the morning.

Jane Elizabeth Gilmore deposed: I am mother of deceased, Jane Elizabeth Gilmore, who was 15 years old on the 21st of May last; she died at about 10 o'clock this morning; she took ill about 3 o'clock, complaining of cramps in her stomach; I gave her some warm rum and water; she then went to sleep, and awoke again at half-past 4 o'clock, when she got up and sat by the fire in the kitchen until 6 o'clock, when she went back to bed again; she called me at about 7 o'clock; when I went into the room I found that she had been confined of a male child; I did all I could for her and the child; I stayed with her till she died; she did not appear to be in any pain, and was lying quite still; I lifted her up in bed to place her head on the pillow, when she seemed to go off in a faint, from which she did not recover, but gradually sank and died about 10 o'clock; I sent for Mrs, Clarke, the nearest neighbour, who came as soon as possible; I was not aware of the condition my daughter was in; when I spoke to her on the subject about two months ago she denied that she was so; I never knew her to keep company with anyone; before she died I asked her who was the father of the child, and she said she would never tell me; deceased enjoyed the best of health, and did her usual work until last night; I have never known her to be away from home at night for the past two years.

John Gilmore, father of deceased, deposed: At about 3 o'clock this morning I heard a noise in the children's bed- room; I awoke my wife and told her to go and see what was amiss with the children; she did so, and when she re- turned she said she hbad given deceased a spoonful of rum and water; shortly afterwards deceased said she would like the fire lighted; I got up and lit the fire in the kitchen, and she went and sat by it; I went back to bed, leaving her at the fire; I afterwards got up and had my breakfast, and then commenced to harness the horses, when I heard a child crying; I then went into the house, when I saw my wife dressing the child; I said, 'In the name of God, what is this ' ; she replied 'A bit of more good luck ;' and continued dressing the child; I went to my daughter's bedside and asked her who was the father of the child, when she replied that she did not know; I then went a way and commenced ploughing; after I had been at work for about half-an-hour my daughter Matilda came and told me to go for the doctor as fast as I could; I then went to the house, when I saw Mrs. Clarke coming out of my daughter's room; and she said .' Lizzie is dead '; I went for Dr. Wade, and he returned home with me; I never knew my daughter to be away from home either day or night, except at the Dapt Show, in January last, and then she returned home before dark.

Maria Clarke deposed that she went to John Gilmore's residence that morning, at about 10 o'clock, in response to a message received; she saw deceased lying in bed in an unconscious condition, and she died about twenty minutes after her arrival; deceased was a very quiet girl, and she never saw her out at night; the last time she saw her was about three months ago, when she thought there was something wrong with her.

Dr. Wade deposed: John Gilmore arrived at my surgery about 11 o'clock in the morning, reported that his daughter was dead, and requested me to go and see her body; I told him to report the matter to the police; after he had done so I accompanied him to his home at Figtree; I found the body of deceased to be warm, and presenting the appearance of having been delivered of a child; there was a live child; dressed, lying beside the body of deceased; that afternoon I made a postmortem examination of the body, which found to be that of a well-nourished young woman; there were no signs of violence on the body; the deceased had been properly attended as far as it went; the cause of death was due to cardiac syncope, or failure of the heart's action, brought about by deceased sitting up in bed immediately after delivery.

To the foreman: The mother appeared to have paid every attention both to deceased and the child.

The coroner having summed up, the jury returned a verdict to tbe effect that deceased died owing to failure of the heart's action, and that no blame was attributable to anyone. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW: 1856 - 1950) Thursday 12 October 1893 p 2

GLASSON. - On the 3rd instant, at the Wesleyan Parsonage, Kiama, the wife of the Rev. G. R. Glasson of a daughter. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Tuesday 5 May 1885 p 2


Mrs. Glasson, widow of the late Rev. G. R. Glasson, passed away on March 7th in her home, “Cadira” Botany Street, South Randwick. She had almost reached the allotted span of life, and her last months: were spent in increasing weakness. Mrs. Glasson was born in. South Australia, but spent all her married life in New South Wales. More than twenty five years ago Mrs. Glasson was left a widow, and; she bravely, faced the world with eight children. She was gifted with a brave faith, and dauntless courage which enabled her to 'wrestle on,'gainst' storm and wind and tide.' Our late friend is best remembered by a former generation of Methodists in such circuits, as Yass, Nowra, Taree, Tamworth, Kiama. For nearly twenty years - Mrs. Glasson lived in Manly. And is re membered by the ministers of that circuit as a quiet, unobtrusive, loyal worker.

Her outstanding marks of character were an intense affection for her children, an unfaltering faith in God, a consistent zeal in good works. To-day her sons and daughters cherish her memory with supreme reverence. Many recall her gracious and kindly friendship. In the Methodist cemetery, Liverpool, her mortal remains were laid beside those of her late revered husband. The Methodist (Sydney, NSW: 1892 - 1954) Saturday 22 April 1922 p 5

MRS. GLENNIE–80 Years.

The death took place at over 80 years of Mrs. Glennie, Shellharbour, who has has lived for many years in the old historic building that in the earlier days, 69 years ago, served as a Council Chambers for the Shellharbour Municipality. The old lady was the last to go of a fine old Shellharbour family in the Fitzgeralds, widely known and respected-a sister of the late Jack Fitgerald as he was familiarly called, who perhaps was the best known of the family, and for many years had a blacksmith's shop at Creagan's corner. He knew all there was to know about a horse, as he shod it and looked after its ailments, and when it made a name on the racing track.

Old friends of the late Mr. Fitzgerald in Messrs. Kelleher and McNabb, attended to the business affairs of his aged sister, and kind friends in Miss Carroll, Miss McNabb and others, with Miss Fitzgerald, a relative, carried out an arduous time of nursing in her last illness, sittinlg up night after night in a true spirit of Christian charity.

The funeral took place in the family plot, Shellharbour cemetery, on Thursday, Rev. Father O'Farrell officiating. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 24 December 1927 p 2

Annie Godden, formerly Keevers, sued for a divorce from James Godden, on the ground of adultery. The petitioner, who was represented by Mr. L W. Robinson, said she married the respondent in November 1900, at Sydney according to the rites of the Presbyterian Church. He was labouring man. They first lived in Newtown, where they remained for 12 months. She be came ill and went to her people at Jamberoo.

There he visited her, and when she returned to Sydney with him in 1901 she noticed that his manner was cool towards her. She heard that he was carrying on with a girl, and spoke to him about it, after which she left him, and returned to her parents at Jamberoo. In 1902 he asked her if she would make it up with him and she answered that he had a girl in Sydney. She asked him if the girl hadn't obtained an order against him in the Newtown Court, and he said 'Yes.' She, however, made it up with him. In June, 1905, she came to Sydney from Jamberoo to see what he was doing. When she asked him if he was going to make a home for her, he said he couldn't get rid of the girl. They lived together for a week and she then went back to her parents.

In 1907, she went to a cottage in Sydenham road, Marrickville. A girl came to the door, and afterwards the respondent. Petitioner asked him if the girl was the one he was living with, and he said 'Yes.'

On Monday, the 1st February, at Christ Church, Kiama, by the Rev. F. Ashwin, Mr. Daniel Foothead, to Mrs. Margaret Size. Kiama Examiner (NSW : 1858 - 1859) Saturday 29 January 1859 p 2

Margaret Goodhead,

Lady of Daniel Goodhead, alias Foothead, alias Hercules, was introduced by Constable Chisholm, and charged ,with having, by the aid of Adams' best bingo “waked the town from her propriety,” by giving tongue to thoughts both loud and loose ordered to pay 10s and costs,or indefault, twenty four hours in the cells. Kiama Examiner (NSW : 1858 - 1859) Saturday 16 April 1859 p 2

LADIES and GENTLEMEN, your are doubtless aware that I have lately, contracted matrimony. A report of the festivities enjoyed on that occasion was published in the Kiama Enquirer, but that report was so obscure (in parts) that I could not distinguish my own name, although I was perfectly sober while readiing it. For instance, I am first represented as one “Hercules” (a man I never saw, and know nothing about.) In another place I am called “Daniel Foothead. The date of the nuptials is also wrong being the 31st of January, and not the 1st February. Now, as my name is neither Hercules nor Foothead, but DANIEL GOODHEAD, I think it a duty to myself and the father who gave it to me (he is Paymaster in the 78th Regiment of Foot, and as brave a soldier as ever jobbed a cowardly Russian with a bayonet) to publicly correct the above.

Kiama, 5th March, 1859

Margaret Goodhead pleaded guilty, to two charges of drunkenness and in default of payment of a fine of £1 for each offence, was sentenced to 24 hours in the lock-up. Examiner (Kiama, NSW : 1859 - 1862) Saturday 23 June 1860 p 2

Living Smith St Wollongong in 1903 Electoral Roll –domestic duties


On Monday the death occurred of Miss Anna Louisa Ranclaud Gordon, of Smith Street, Wollongong, one of the oldest residents of the town. She carried her age remarkably well until recently, and took an active interest in the affairs of life. The late Miss Gordon was the eldest surviving daughter of the late Mr. Henry Gordon, who came from Ireland in the early eighties. He established an Educational Academy in Elizabeth Street, Sydney, where the deceased was born 93 years ago. The late Mr. Gordon came to the Illawarra district in 1845 and engaged in farming at Mount Kembla. Later he relinquished the farm, and came to Wollongong to live where he established a school, which he conducted for some years. The deceased had lived in Wollongong ever since, where she had endeared herself to a circle of friends. When the deceased was 18 years of age her mother died, and the following year her eldest sister passed away; and she was left to mother three brothers and five sisters, the youngest of whom was nine months of age. After the death of her mother, the family settled in Wollongong, where the late Mr. Gordon opened a private school. The late Miss Gordon was a great worker for her church, which she loved. In her younger days she was a Sunday School teacher, and was an active Worker in raising funds for the erection of the present St. Michael's Church. Shehad a very keen recollection of the early days of Wollongong, and to hear her stories of life in those far off days was most interesting.

One of her sisters married Mr Frank Thompson, who went to reside at Horsley, and later settled in Sydney, and another sister married Mr. Arthur Orphen MacGillycuddy, who at that time was associated with the Public Works Department, when the Wollongong breakwater was under construction.

Late Miss Gordon

By the death of Miss Blanche Harrington Gordon, which occurred at her home, Smith street, Wollongong, on Monday, Wollongong and district has lost one whose lovable nature and Christian outlook on life had set a splendid example.

With always a kind word for everyone she had endeared herself to all sections of the- community and her passing will be deeply regretted by a very wide circle of friends.

Miss Gordon was a member of one of the pioneer families of this district and was born at Mt. Kembla, 77 years ago. She had seen Wollongong grow from a small village to its present proud position, taking a keen interest in the many movements having for their object the betterment of the town and those residing in it.

She was the second youngest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Gordon, who came to Australia from Ireland nearly 100 years ago. He commenced a private school in Sydney and it was there that the two eldest daughters, Frances and Anna were born. About 1845, the family moved to 'Woodbrook,' Mt Kembla, where Mr Gordon took up farming. Some years later they moved into Wollongong, where Mr. Gordon opened a private school in premises situated in Market Square.

However, soon after their arrival, the mother died and upon Miss Anna who died in January, 1934, at the age of 93 years, fell the task of rearing the family. Two daughters married and resided on the Coast, Susan (Mrs. Frank Thompson, of Horsley) and Agnes (Mrs. A. O. Macgillycuddy, Wollongong) .

Friends of Mrs. E. Matthews, of Mort-street, will regret to hear of the death of her mother, Mrs. Lucy Gorringe, in the Lithgow Hospital at an early hour this morning. Deceased was 73 years of ago, and was a widow, her husband having died suddenly in November. A native of England, she came to Australia many years ago, and was a resident of Kandos for some years prior to her husband's death. Since then she lived with Mrs. Matthews, but had not been in the best of health.

Four sons—two living in, Sydney and two at Kandos-and two daughters Mrs. Matthews and Mrs. Farr, of Gulgong — survive.

The funeral will take place tomorrow in the Methodist portion of the Kandos cemetery. Lithgow Mercury (NSW: 1898 - 1954) Wednesday 9 January 1929 p 2

Both husbands miners

In 1883 she was residing at Clifton where her daughter Isabella and son John were living. She was using the surname Goundry at this time, before she married her second husband.

Isabella and Joseph remained at Clifton until about 1891 when they returned to the Newcastle district. They resided at New Lambton until Joseph's sudden death in 1894. It is not known why they returned to Newcastle, however, as they had now been married for several years any scandal would have since subsided. Isabella had children living in the Newcastle district and it can only be assumed they wished to be reunited with their families. Interestingly, Joseph's death certificate indicates that he and Isabella were married in 1870, some 16 years earlier than their legal marriage took place.

After Joseph's death, Isabella remained in Newcastle. She died of senile decay. Her son, William was the informant at her death.

While on a visit to her sister, Mrs. Ryan, of Crookhaven, Mrs. Catherine Goulding took suddenly ill on Sunday last, and within an hour or so she had succumbed. Heart trouble was the cause of the sudden attack and quick collapse. The deceased lady was well known to many of the old hands in this district, in which she had resided for many years, and where she was married to the late Mr. R. Goulding, who farmed at Brundee prior to removing to the northern rivers some 35 years ago. The late Mrs. Goulding was a member of the Carmody family, who were early settlers in Shoalhaven. She was quite a young girl when the family landed in this district from Ireland. Her husband predeceased her some years. Deceased was 71 years of age, and was held in high esteem, not only by a large circle of relatives and friends in this community, but on the Bellinger River she had her home for many years. The mortal remains were interred in the R. C. portion of the Nowra general cemetery on Tuesday, Rev. Father O'Farrell performing the last sad rites.

We learn with regret of the death of Mrs Duncan Gow, of Dunmore, Shellharbour, which took place on the 21st instant, from natural decay. At a very tender age, Mrs. Gow with her parents arrived at Shellharbour, in which locality she has lived ever since. She leaves a husband, seven children, and twenty grand-children to mourn their loss. The late Mrs. Gow will be much missed, not only by her own family and relatives, but also by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. She was a noble, honest woman, and was deservedly esteemed by all who came in contact with her. The funeral took place the following day, and and although the weather was wet and stormy, a large number followed her remains to their last resting place in the Presbyterian Cemetery, Shellharbour. The Rev. Mr. Willis, of Jamberoo, (in the absence of the Rev J. Burgess) performed the last sad writes, conducting a very impressive service at the grave. Much sympathy is felt for the bereaved family. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Wednesday 2 March 1904 p 2


It is our sad duty to chronicle the death of one of the oldest and most highly esteemed residents of this district, in the person of Mrs Gow, wife of Mr. Duncan Gow, of Dunmore, which sad event took place early on the morning of Sunday last, the 21st inst., at the age of 68 years, death being due to natural decay. The deceased lady was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs Atkinson, and was born in Dublin, Ireland in the year 1836. At the age of two years she emigrated to this colony with her parents, and five years later landed at Shellharbor, and spent the remainder of her life (with the exception of about twelve months) in this district. In the year 1859 the deceased lady was married to the late Mr. Ball, who died four years later, leaving two daughters (still living). In the year 1869 she was married to Mr. Duncan Gow, with whom she resided at Dunmore till the day of her decease. There are five children by the second marriage, thus leaving a husband and seven children (with twenty grandchildren) to mourn their loss. The late Mrs. Gow will be much missed, not only by her family and immediate relations, but by all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance; she possessed one of the most noble of natures, for which she was widely loved and esteemed, and being ever ready to render assistance in times of sickness, sorrow and distress, she will be widely mourned. Her kind and hospitable nature was well and widely known through-out this district, and many will miss her ever-sympathetic and self-sacrificing nature, more especially her husband and children (to whom she proved herself a devoted wife and loving and indulgent mother) and to others with whom she was daily brought into contact. Two old land marks by which the memory of the deceased lady will ever remain green to many old residents is the two fig trees at Shellharbor (near Mr. James M.Coy's residence) which she, with other school children, planted there during or about the year 1849. We extend our sincere sympathy to the bereaved family.

The funeral took place on Monday, and although the weather was very unpropitious, a large number of relatives and friends followed the remains of the deceased lady to their last resting place in the Presbyterian portion of the cemetery at Shellharbor. The Rev. R. S. Willis, M.A., of Jamberoo (in the absence of the Rev. J. Burgess, M.A.) performed the last sad rites, conducting a very impressive service at the graveside.

A few more years shall roll,
A few more seasons come,

It is my sad duty to record the death of Mrs Graham (wife of Mr. J. C. Graham manager of the Control Creamery, Albion Park) which took place early on Monday morning. The deceased lady was the youngest daughter of Mrs. Boxsell, of Bollawongara, and had only been married about ten months or so. Although a stranger to Albion Park people, Mrs. Graham has been remarked for hor many acts of kindness. The funeral took place on Tuesday afternoon. Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved husband. Wednesday 29 January 1902 p 2

A deep gloom was cast over the town of Albion Park on Monday last when it became known that Mrs Graham (eldest son of Mr. C. Graham, storekeeper, of Nowra), had passed away at the early age of 25 years. Death was due to septicaemia. Mrs. Graham was a daughter of Mrs. R. Boxwell, Kangaroo Mount.

Deceased leaves a little daughter three weeks old and her husband who occupies the position of manager to the Albion Park butter factory. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW: 1900 - 1954) Saturday 8 February 1902 p 5

Mrs. A. Graham.

Mrs. Emily Graham died at her residence, 67 John-street, Stanmore, on Monday, 18th May. The deceased was the wife of the late Mr. John Graham, who died at Bowral in 1891. She had been ailing for some considerable time, and some 18 months ago underwent an operation at Dr. Hinder's Hospital at Summer Hill, and the after effects of this, together with an affection of the heart, are said to have been the cause of death, at the age of 50 years. The late Mrs. Graham was born at 'Glendiver,' The Oaks, Camden, and was the second daughter bof James Moore, Esq. She leaves a family, of three grown-up sons — Stanley, Edgar, and Hartley — to mourn their loss. A service was held at deceased's late residence at 7.45 a.m. on Wednesday, 20th May, after which the remains were taken by train to Bowral, and were interred in the general cemetery.

At the Queanbeyan police court on Friday, March 27th, before the police magistrate, Richard Boyd, Patrick Foley, and Charles Thomas, remanded on a charge of having on the 19th or morning of the 20th March instant, at Bungendore, feloniously wounded Mary Ann Donoghue and Esther Donoghue, with intent to murder,were brought up in custody for further examination.

Mr. Parr appeared for prisoner Thomas. Senior-sergeant Brennan proposed to recall Senior Constable McKeon to give additional evidence. Senior-constable McKeon recalled: After confining the three prisoners at the lock-up at Bungendore on the morning of the 20th, I took their boots off and carried them down to the house where the assault had been committed; I left the boots at the fence alongside the chimney; Patrick Riley and others were present; I produce the boot of the right foot of prisoner Foley which is one of the boots I left at the fence on the morning of the 20th; I noticed a peculiarity that the upper is worn out over the sole on the right side, and the heel is also most worn on the right side; I produce a spade-handle strapped with iron, which Mrs. Donoghue, the mother of the two girls, gave me on Saturday the 21st instant; I remember in giving my evidence on Saturday last that prisoner Boyd asked me in cross-examination whether Mr. Sherd told me he did not see a man running past his place on the morning of the 20th and that he ran after him, but could not overtake him, and that he thought it was young Patrick Car-roll ; I now believe it was Patrick Riley, and not Patrick Carroll, Sherd told me he saw; I inadvertently used the one name for the other.

To Mr. Parr: When Senior-Sergeant Brennan was addressing the bench and saying there were three men who went up to the house where the girls were sleeping about eleven or twelve o'clock, two of whom they recognised, and the third they did not know, prisoner Thomas said “that's me,” and added, “I was on the street.”

Senior-Sergeant Brennan explained that he was saying that about twelve o'clock at night three men came up, broke open the door, went in, and the girls screamed out. Two of the men (Boyd and Foley) were known to the girls, but the other was not known. Prisoner Thomas then said “ that's me,” &c. He then proposed to give evidence himself on the subject of what took place.

Dr. Morton, recalled: I saw the two girls, Mary Ann and Esther Donohue, whom I attended at Bugendore on the 20th, last night at Queanbeyan; they are progressing favourably so far as the wounds are concerned; the wounds are healing and the girls may be considered out of danger, but the retina of the right eye of Mary Ann is paralysed, and it is likely to produce permanent blindness.

Esther Donoghue examined: I know the prisoner Boyd; he resides at Bungendore, and is in the employ of Mr. Anderson, the saddler; I know prisoner Patrick Foley; he was in my father's employment for the last two years; I don't know the prisoner Thomas; I remember the night of Thursday last, the 19th instant; I went to bed about ten o'clock, and my sister Mary Ann slept with me, and went to bed at the same time; I fastened the door with an iron bolt; there was no other fastening; I was woke by my sister about an hour after we went to bed; I saw three men standing in the doorway that opens into the street; I don't know how they got in ; I told them in a loud tone of voice to go away; I know two of these persons-they are the prisoners Richard Boyd and Patrick Foley; they did not say anything, but went away; I looked out after them and saw what direction they took; I saw them cross the street and go in the direction of Sherd's; I examined the door to see how they effected an entrance, and I found that the place where the bolt went in was broken off; it was a hole that was made in the door post was broken; I refastened the door and went to bed again; I was awoke about an hour later in the night by feeling a hand on my side; I forced it off thinking it was my sister's; I then called out to my sister, “Mary Ann, there is a man in the room;” she said, “he had better go away, if there is;” my sister then asked me if there were any matches in the room, and I told her no; I then felt the hand coming again on my person; I screamed out, and then got a blow on the head ; it was a severe blow; it bled freely ; my sister got a blow after me; I was not rendored stupid; we both screamed out; I don't remember receiving any other blow; we lay on the bed screaming for about half-an-hour; we were both bleeding during that time; I then got up and opened the door, and ran into the street and down to my father's place, and reported the matter to him; I did not go back again; I have been confined to my bed from the effect of those wounds, and Dr. Morton of Queanbeyan has been in attendance upon me; there was a fireplace and chimney in the room where I slept; the stone breastwork around the fireplace was whitewashed; the door was fastened when I went out; attached to this room there is a shop containing groceries, &c., in which I am in the habit of serving; it is my dwelling-house; I was never on terms of familiarity with any of the prisoners; I know the two only by name; I have served Boyd with groceries, and he must have known where I slept, as he has seen me coming from the room every morning; Foley must have also known that I slept there; the blankets, sheets, and pillows now produced are those which were on my bed, and have still the marks of blood which flowed from the wounds received by my sister and myself that night.

To Mr. Parr: I did not hear the door burst open, but I saw three men in the doorway; none of them were in the street; I only recognised two out of the three; I have always slept in that room over the last two years; since Foley has been in my father's employ, that has never been his bedroom; the men went away directly they were told.

Re-examined: The prisoner Boyd was the first to come in ; he was inside on the floor; the prisoner Foley and the strange man were standing in the doorway.

To the bench: The light had been put out, and we had no matches at hand; the bedroom door opens into the street; there was no fire in the fireplace; the men did not speak ; it was starlight, and I am certain as to the identity of Boyd and Foley; I can't say whether the strange man was tall or short.

Mary Ann Donoghue, sister of last witness, gave evidence to the same effect.

Mrs. Mary Ann Donoghue, the girls' mother, gave evidence as being aroused by her daughters and attending to their wounds; and added: While I was doing this prisoner Boyd came in; I said to him, “Dick, isn't this an awful thing that has happened my two girls?” he said “yes,” and shook his head;

I then asked him who was with him when he went up to the room; he said “Paddy Foley, Tom Priest, and a strange man;” I meant the room where my daughters slept when the outrage was committed; I had a down upon him then and (with tears) would almost swear he was the murderer; I meant when the door had been broken in of which I had been informed; I blame Foley and Boyd; it was a planned matter between them; I then asked him what brought him there; he said, “Paddy Foley took the strange man there to give him a shakedown.”

The bench: In your daughter's bedroom?

Witness: Yes; I afterwards went again to the bedroom of my daughters' and examined the place; I found the mark of a naked foot in the ashes; it was a clear impresion, and I took particular notice of it; I saw the same bare footmark going in the direction of Sherd's from the chimney; I am certain it was the same foot that made all these impressions; I saw a footmark made by Boyd when in custody, and when I saw that I said, “they are the murderers, and no one ever did it but them;” I saw some footmarks in a drain a few yards from the chimney through which the entrance was effected; I saw some boots brought by Senior Constable McKeon, and was standing by when they were compared with these tracks, and they corresponded exactly; the boot was down at the heel, and the track was the same, making greater impression on the outside of the track; I can't say the boot produced is the one I saw, but one that Senior-Constable McKeon brought fitted the track; I saw other tracks on a three-rail fence beside a drain, and saw some of the same sort of clay on the rails that was on the boots; on the next morning I went to where I had seen the tracks I have been speaking about, and on going further along the drain I saw footmarks and impressions of feet, as if persons had been sitting there; I saw also a piece of a spade-handle a little distance from where the impressions were; I picked it up and examined it; it was strapped with iron; I picked it up and showed it to my husband; I saw a spot of blood on it (produced); I observe the same mark on it now; the blood was much more distinct then than now, as several persons have been handling it since; my daughters have been in bed ever since until the day before yesterday; they were quite sensible;

Boyd was full dressed and had his boots on when he came to my place on the morning of the occurrence; Boyd was not present when Senior-constable McKeon examined the bed; my daughters were happy and well the night before this happened.

Boyd and Foley declined to ask any questions.

To Mr. Parr: I know Mr. Priest; he is a fat man, taller than Foley.

Mr. Parr asked at this stage to discharge prisoner Thomas, as the evidence of both Senior-constable McKeon and Mrs. Donoghue as to a third person being present, and Priest being shown to be in their company, his (Thomas's) statement was borne out, that he was on the street, but not in the house.

The bench declined to entertain the application.

Esther Donoghue recalled: I heard some one cough outside immediately before I got struck; the prisoner Boyd I saw inside when the door was broken in; Foley was standing in the doorway—the third and strange man was standing in the doorway also; I know a man named Tom Priest; he lives at Bungendore.

Mr. Parr: It is not fair to re-call a witness to rebut the evidence of a subsequent witness.

Senior sergeant Brennan stated that the course was admissable in reply to Mr. Parr's application for the discharge of Thomas.

The bench coincided.

Re-examination continued: Tom Priest was not the third person, I am certain of that; I saw the three man going away; there were no more than three going away; I heard the strange man say “is this where you brought me to get a shake down— where there's a lot of girls?”

Cross-examinoed by Mr. Parr: The strange man appeared surprised; he did not speak as if he wanted us to hear; he was speaking to one of the other men; the strange man also said, “I'll give you a shakedown elsewhere.”

Michael Rielly stated: I live at Bungendore, and am bailiff of the small debts' court there; …

The prisoners were then committed for trial at the Goulburn assizes, on 8th April, for burglariously and feloniously entering the dwelling-house of Mary Ann and Esther Donoghue, and cutting and wounding the said Mary Ann and Esther Donoghue Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 31 March 1874 p 2

GRAHAM-DONOGHOE.-December 20, at St. Philip's Church,  Sydney, by the Rev. W. J. K. Piddington, Alexander, seventh son of Archibald Graham, Wollongong, to Esther, fourth daughter of John Donoghoe, of Bungendore. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW: 1842 - 1954) Tuesday 23 December 1879 p 1 Family Notices


Mrs. Esther Graham, whose holy and happy death occurred on the 17th ult., at the Mater Misericordiae Hospital, North Sydney, was by her wonderful personality and exemplary life, very highly respected and loved by all. She passed away very peacefully and her beautiful death was a source of great religious consolation to her bereaved children and friends. Born at Bungendore, N.S.W., she married the late Alexander Graham, who predeceased her only two weeks ago. After living in different parts of the State for a number of years, the late Mr. and Mrs. Graham finally made their home at 'Lasswade,' Hawthorne-parade, Haberfield. The deceased lady never rallied from the great shock caused by her husband's death, and she was nursed devotedly to the end by her eldest daughter, Sister Mary Dominica of the Nursing Staff. The funeral left the Hospital Chapel for Rookwood Cemetery, where the remains, were laid to rest beside her late husband. Seven children are left, to bear their supreme sorrow; Sister Mary Dominica (Mater Misericordiae Hospital, North Sydney), Mesdames H. E. Gleeson (Sydney), T. Conroy, and T. P. Carroll (Wollar), and Messrs. Reg and Jack (Sydney), and Clyde (Wellington,N.S.W.). Freeman's Journal (Sydney, NSW: 1850 - 1932) Thursday 10 September 1925 p 15

Though an invalid for a number of years the death of Mrs, Johnston Graham aged 73, came suddenly and unexpectedly from heart failure on Saturday night, with her daughters the Misses Georgina and Irene Graham, ever in devoted attention to their mother, at hand to do all that was possible. The late Mrs. Graham was a native of this district, where she has lived all her life, and a Mrs Sproule, of Jerrara, sister-in-law of Mrs. Sproule, Terralong street, Kiama. Her husband predeceased her 35 years ago, also two sons Henry and Thomas, and one daughter, Rebecca, and she leaves four daughters and two sons to mourn the loss of a good mother. in the years of health and strength the late Mrs. Graham was a kind and thoughtful friend and neighbour in sickness or trouble, and one deeply concerned in the welfare of her home and family. A splendid mother, for she was left, a widow when her youngest child was only a few week's old. The late Mrs. Graham, before the illness brought on by the shock of her son's death, Mr Thomas Graham, was also greatly interested in church work.

A large number of beautiful wreaths were significant of the sympathy of (many district friends to the Misses Graham, Mrs. James Fleming, of Jamberoo, and Mrs. Biggars, of Mt. Kembla, and Messrs. Samuel and Johnston Graham, of Dunmore. The late Mrs.

Sproule of Penshurst, was present at the funeral a sister in Mrs. Bell, of West Australia, is the only other member living of her family.

The Rev. G. M. Torbett officiated at the grave side, the interment in the Presbyterian cemetery Jamberoo. The funeral had a very large and representative attendance. The Kiama Reporter and Illawarra Journal (NSW : 1899 - 1947) Wednesday 22 February 1928 p 2

Mr. F. W. Edwards, P.M., and coroner for the district, held an inquest to-day touching the death of the late Mrs. Grainger, who committed suicide at Fountaindale on Tuesday evening. The medical evidence showed that death resulted from strangulation and from injury to the spine, the neck having been partially dislocated. The deceased had threatened to destroy herself so many times that her relatives felt no apprehension. The jury returned a verdict that Mrs.Grainger died of strangulation by her own act while under the influence of a fit of melancholy. The Sydney Morning Herald Friday 20 December 1889

The death occurred on Friday last of Mrs, Charlotte Gray, wife of Mr. John Gray, of Bell St., Keiraville, aged 60 years. The late Mrs. Gray was a woman of kindly disposition, and was respected by a wide circle of friends, who to-day mourn her death. The large funeral cortege which followed the remains of the deceased from Bell Street, to the Wollongong C.E. Cemetary on Sunday afternoon testified to the esteem in which she was held. In addition to relatives and friends, representatives of a number of public bodies were in attendance, and there were a number of floral tributes. The Rev. E. Walker, R.D., conducted a short service at the house, and afterards officiated at the graveside, making feeling reference to the good qualities of the late Mrs. Gray, and said that the large number of persons assembled to pay their respects, was a tribute to her kindly nature.

The late Mrs. Gray arrived in Australia from England when only twelve years of age, and had lived in the district all her life, and at Keiraville for most of the time. She married Mr. John Gray just 40 years ago, in Wollongong. She leaves a family of eight, viz., Dorothy (Cremorne), Sarah (Mrs. C. Kirkwood, Wollongong), Nellie (Manly Salvation Army), Lottie; sons, Messrs. William, Jack, Walter and Edward. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved family.

A very notable figure passed away on February 24 by the death of Mrs. Emma Gray, of Sutherland. The deceased lady was born about the same time as Queen Victoria. Born and reared a Protestant, when she landed in this country she was introduced by a French lady to Archpriest Therry, and very shortly was received into the Catholic fold. In 1835 she was married to her first husband (Mr. Archibald Kelly) by the late Dr. Ullathorne (afterwards Bishop of Birmingham) in old St. Mary's. Left a widow with a family of three sons and a daughter, she married a second time, surviving the second husband, by whom she had a family of six children. All through life Mrs Gray was a most devout Christian, and up to the time of her death was a regular communicant. For the past ten years she had resided with her eldest daughter, receiving the last rites of the Church from Father

Grace, of Kogarah. The last prayers at the gravy at Bookwood were said by the Rev. Fathers Macnumara and Barry. Freeman's Journal (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1932) Saturday 8 March 1902 p 22

With regard to the death of Mrs. Thomas Gray, whose demise at Sutherland was recently reported, it may be mentioned that the deceased lady lived in the Illawarra district for over 39 years, embracing long terms of residence at' Berkley ' Unanderra, and Shellharbor.

She lived 18 years in Sydney and 10 years in Sutherland. Soon after her arrival from England she was married to Mr. Archibald Kelly at, St. Mary's Cathedral, by the Rev, Dr. Ullathorne, afterwards Bishop of Birmingham, England. Her husband and she then settled in Balgownie, where Mr. Kelly was overseer for Mr. W. Wilson, who at the time owned the estate. Thy subsequently took up a selection at Fairy Meadow, residing there six years, and on the 28th September, 1842, Mrs. Kelly became a widow, with three sons (of whom Mr. W. Kelly, Oak Flats, is the youngest, the four still living) and one daughter, Mr. Kelly being accidentally killed at Berkley. Mrs. Kelly was married to Mr. Thos Gray, of Wollongong, in April, 1844.

As briefly reported in our last issue, the death occurred on Thursday night of Miss Jane Gray at her residence, Saddleback, aged 85. She was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Francis Gray and had lived at Saddleback during the whole of her long life.

In her younger days she was a fine horsewoman and a familiar figure in Kiama. Perhaps for longer than any other lady in the district she retained the old fashioned side-saddle. Her chief interest was in her home and garden and the care of her brothers.

A good neighbour and one always ready to do a kindly action and good turn; she will be missed from her family circle and by those living in this somewhat remote part of the district.

She is survived by five brothers, Messrs. Robert, William, Samuel and Thomas (Saddleback) and John Gray (Fountaindale), and three sisters, Miss Mary Gray (Saddleback ), Mrs. W. H. Johnston (Jerrara), and Mrs. T. Chittick (Richmond River)-. The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon at the Kiama Church of England cemetery,

John Gray, of Macquarie River, Wollongong side, committed a murderous assault upon his wife, inflicting seven dangorous wounds on her with an American axe. Gray gave himself up to Mr. Moles, J.P. He carried the axe in his hand, having spots of blood and human hair thereon, and said, “This is the axe I did it with.” Mrs. Gray died on Tuesday night It was alleged that Jealousy was the cause but without foundation. Clarence and Richmond Examiner and New England Advertiser 12 July 1870

The Grays were married about twelve years ago in county Clare, Ireland, and shortly after came out here, and have resided the most of the time since in the district. The man was of a harsh and unkindly nature, of highly jealous temperament, and persistently cruel in his behaviour towards his wife. She was a strong, well built woman, aged thirty-four at the time of her death, not good looking, but wearing ever on her face that cheerful look which makes homely features pleasant to the eye. It was the reflex of a naturally fond heart, for it was her love for her children seven in number-which enabled her to endure all her troubles without scarcely a murmur. The unkindness of her husband towards her culminated to such a point that she was obliged to seek protection from the Bench at Wollongong, and the consequence was that Gray, in default of sureties, was committed to prison to twenty-one days.

“That the said Jane Gray came to her death, at Calderwood, on Wednesday, this 6th day of July instant, in consequence of wounds maliciously and feloniously inflicted on her by her husband, John Gray, with two axes, during the night of; the 30th of June last past and the early morning of the 1st of July instant.” The Sydney Morning Herald 18 July 1870

KIAMA. Saturday.

John Gray has been committed by the Coroner to take his trial at Sydney, on the 1st August, for the wilful murder of his wife. The prisoner and his wife have been in the colony twelve years, and have had seven children during that time,-the eldest twelve years old, and the youngest six weeks. His eldest girl, Mary, twelve years old, and Robert, eleven years old, gave evidence in the case. This dreadful murder has created a large amount of excitement in the Wollongong district. Australian Town and Country Journal 16 July 1870

…Mary Gray, the eldest of the children of the deceased woman, stated: I am the daughter of the deceased. Jane Gray, and of John Gray, whom I see here, and am twelve years of age. My father went to Sydney last Thursday week (the 23rd. ultimo), and came back again last Thursday, some little after dark, at about seven o'clock, when my mother and we children were getting our suppers. He did not speak to any of us when he came into the house, but went at once into the bed room, where he remained for a short time, and then came out into the kitchen where we were. He shook hands with mother, and kissed her and then shook hands with each of us and kissed us, after which we had our supper, and no angry word passed between father and mother, although kind ones did. We did not remain long up after supper, but about eight o'clock went to bed. We all slept in the same room on two beds, which touch each other, and are foot to foot. My father, mother, and baby occupied one, with Johnny at their feet, and I and the rest of the children slept in the other. When all were in bed I put out the candle and went to sleep. I was awoke in the night, about two hours afterwards, I should think, by a hammering -I counted three knocks, and heard -my father calling my mother “a - ,” and other bad names, and saying that “she would not get married now.” I got out- of bed in the dark and found my father by the side of my mother's bed. he lit a candle, and I saw he was dressed. He told me to go out of that and take the baby with me. I found the baby almost under: my mother, lying on her right arm. My mother's head was covered with blood and the pillow also. - The bed clothes which are now produced were on my mother's bed that night, and she wore the bed-gown which I see here. I spoke to my mother as I took the baby away, and called to her several times, but she never answered me, nor has she spoken since. I saw her move her arm on Friday last. She died this morning. On cross-examination witness said: - When it was clear daylight, between six and seven o'clock, father went to the creek for some water, boiled some of it when he came back, and made his breakfast ready. He then went into the bedroom, and I heard him say “You- , you are not dead yet.” and I heard a blow My father then came out and had his breakfast. After that he said he would go to Mr Moles's and give himself up. He kissed the other children, but I and Mag would not kiss him because he had killed my mother…. Queanbeyan Age Thursday 21 July 1870

Her husband was sentenced to death for this murder but this was commuted on the ‘ground of the doubtful sanity of the convict’ and he was imprisoned for life. He was not drunk but had been accusing her of ‘seeing’ other men and was fearful for his own life as he believed that men were following him to kill him. The children, with the exception of the baby Patrick Gray, were placed in the Roman Catholic Orphanage at Parramatta and were in touch with each other. The baby, Patrick Gray, was initially cared for by the family’s neighbours and then sent to the Benevolent Society in 1876, he was sent to the Randwick Asylum for Destitute Children in 1870, the last seen of him was when he was apprenticed to a farmer on Ash Island near Newcastle in 1885. It is unknown if he knew he had surviving family.

Mr. F. L. Graydon received the sad news of the death of his mother, who passed away on Sunday, the 15th inst., at her daughter's residence, Sydney, at the age of 82. The deceased was the wife of the late John

Graydon of “Tooloone” County Wicklow, Ireland, and she came to this country, a bride. They landed in Queensland, where they resided for a few years, and then went to Gerringong, on the South Coast and afterwards to Yattayatta, near- Milton, where most of their children were born and reared.

The late Mrs. Graydon came to the Richmond River about fifteen, years ago, and resided with her sons Frederick and Thomas until about two years ago, 'since when she has lived with her daughters in Sydney.

Three of the deceased's children died in infancy, and soon after their, death the late John Graydon passed away, leaving a family of young children. The deceased struggled along and reared her family through many years of hardship, bringing her children up as only a true and loving mother can. Soon after her husband death she lost her son Charlie, who was accidentally killed, in Sydney. About three years ago John died, after a short, illness, and twelve months after that. Thomas passed away, whom the deceased nursed with loving care and tenderness for many weary months. After his death she never regained her strength, but gradually weakened until she passed away peacefully on the 15th inst. The late Mrs. Graydon was loved and esteemed by all who knew her. Many dear friends she had on the South Coast, where she was well, known for her kindness and hospitality. No weary traveller ever passed her door with out a cheery word and refreshment. In sickness and trouble the deceased always did her utmost to help and relieve her friends and neighbors. All her sorrows and troubles she bore with a true Christian spirit.

Shes never once murmured at her trials her one thought and one cry always being- “Thy will be done.” There are many to-day who will always remember the kindly smile and hearty hand clasp of their dear old friend Mrs. Graydon. The surviving children of the deceased are Mrs. Plumb (Sydney), Mrs. Truscott (Cowra), Mrs. Coltman (Sydney),

Mrs. Walker (Sydney), Richard (Sydney), and George and Frederick (Lismore). Northern Star (Lismore, NSW : 1876 - 1954) Thursday 26 April 1917 p 4

Edward Green - I am a settler, residing about three miles from Wollongong; my house is a slab hut covered on the roof with bark; my house was attacked about the 9th of October; on a Monday; my wife and I came from Wollongong and arrived at home about three o'clock; a man named Quin overtook us on the road and went with us to the hut; my wife asked him if he had a pass, he said he had as he had been into Wollongong on business for his mistress; he got a drink and sat down a little, while my wife and I had some dinner; he said Green I hear you have a nice piece, let me have a look at it; he asked if I had any powder and my wife said we had none; he had a cannister of power himself and loaded it and it missed fire; my wife said that she had never known it do that before, and asked him to try it again, and he did so, and it went off; he asked what had become of the dog, and my wife said it had died from the ticks; about an hour before sun-down he went away and bid us good night: Quin lived at Dapto; after he was gone I loaded the gun at my wife's request; I loaded it with swan shot; I brought £4 9s. from Wollongong with me; while we were at dinner I gave it to my wife and told her to lay it by; she went into the room and put it away; Quin was present at this time; my wife tried to conceal the notes and shook the nine shillings into the table-drawer and said it was easily put away; I afterwards asked her if she had put away what I had given her and she said she had, and Quin smiled and said take care of that; about twelve o'clock that night we were in bed and my wife woke me having heard somebody round the house; some men came to the door; there was a form outside and a bucket fell off which made a noise; they began to beat at the door as if they would beat it to pieces; my wife said, we are done now and gave me the gun; I asked the people what they wanted; they said d— your old eyes if we get in we'll put you on the fire; they kept knocking at the house very blustrous trying to get in; my wife said, if you don't rack the house and do murder we'll give you anything we have; they said they were bushrangers starving; she said she would give them some flour and pork, when one of them said, d— your victuals we want money; she said it is very little we have, one of them said, where is the money you brought from the branch; she being in a fright replied she did not know where she put it; and one of them said, we'll soon get in and commenced tearing the bark off the roof, on which my wife handed him three £1 notes, and said she had but one more and asked him to let her keep it; he was blustrous and said he would have all; she came out to the kitchen and gave me the office, that at the time she handed the note, I could shoot him; I followed her directions, and as soon as she handed the note, I fired through the roof where the bark had been removed; it was dark, and I could just see him wag his hand; he fell down, and I said to my wife, there's one down; hand me the other piece and I'll soon have another.  I wanted to go out, but my wife wouldn't let me until I had loaded the piece; when I went out I found the man was removed; we went over to a neighbour named Benjamin Rixon, and alarmed him; he went over to my house, and I went to the stockade about a quarter of a mile distant to alarm the soldiers; I told the sentry what had happened; the men were mustered by the sergeant; I saw Blackhall lying in the guard-room; he was wounded in the wrist, mouth and eye; I said to this sergeant that's the man, and Blackhall told me he had planted the money in the stump near my house; we went back and found two pairs of shoes near the stump about four rods from my house; with a candle we tracked the blood towards the stockade; in the morning we tracked the footsteps of two men through some green barley towards that stockade; these men wore shoes; it being dry weather we could not trace any one that was barefooted; to the best of my belief the prisoner Stingaree Jack is the man who said he would burn me in the fire; as soon as I heard him speak at Wollongong Court, it struck me that he was the man; he has a peculiar kind of voice; he speaks in his throat, as if he was hoarse; it is called an ironed gang at Wollongong, but there are not many that wear irons.

Cross-examined - I was at the stockade the morning after the robbery; I said the man that spoke to me did not speak his own language; and I did not think it was him till I heard him speak in the Court-house, to the best of my belief Martin is the man who threatened to burn me.

Benjamin Rixon - I am a farmer residing at Wollongong; Green is a tenant of mine, and lives about one hundred rods from me; between one and two o'clock on the morning of the 9th October, Green reported to me that he had been robbed; I went with him to his own house; a sheet of bark was removed off the skilling; we got a light and marked blood from the threshhold for fifty or sixty rods; he appeared to me to have walked; I marked three different people across a potatoe [sic] bed; we found two pairs of shoes about two o'clock after Green had returned from the stockade; two of the tracks were of barefooted men.

Joseph Lavers, private of the 80th regiment - in October last I was stationed at Wollongong; on the 1 th [sic] October I went on sentry at one, to remain till three; I had been on duty about three quarters of an hour, when Blackhall came in all covered with blood; the gate was closed and I challenged him; I asked him what he wanted, and as I did not know him, and he made me no answer I told him if he did not go away I would blow his brains out; I called the corporal, and the man then said it was Billy; I thought I knew his voice, and asked if it was William Blackhall; he said it was and I let him in and gave him in charge to the corporal; I heard the report of a gun about an hour before in the direction of Green's house; about ten minutes afterwards I heard a second report; Green came about ten minutes after Blackhall; he said his house had been robbed and he had shot a man whom he did not know; he came to get a constable, and said he did not suspect any of the stockade men; I went round to the huts with the sergeant and every man was in his bed; we counted them first, and made every man shew his shirt and trowsers to see if they had been through the wet grass; every man's shoes were dry; if a person turned up his trowsers they would not be wet; Blackhall had no shoes on; we counted the men before we went to Green's, and when we returned we examined the clothes; we made every man get up.

Charles Newell - I am a prisoner of the crown – I was under sentence at the stockade at Illawarra in October last; I was sent to Goat Island on my first arrival in the colony; I arrived in the colony by the Fairlie; I was tried at Northampton, and transported for life: I recollect the night Green was robbed; Watkins came to the hut I slept in between nine and ten o'clock; I do not know how he got there; he called me into the blacksmith's shop; there is a partition between the hut and the shop with a door in it; I was up late reading the Sydney Gazette, newspaper; we often get pieces of newspapers from the military; I had a blacking bottle with some oil in it which I got from the lamplighter that was attached to the stockade; he often gave us some oil for the hut; we had a fire and light all night; I was a bullock driver and was exempted out of the other hut; Martin was a stock keeper and used to take the bullocks to the run after they were fed; Watkins asked me if I would step as far as the hospital and call Blackhall; I did so; Blackhall was sitting on the bench drinking something out of a pot; Watkins and Blackhall stood at the blacksmith's forge, talking; I could not hear what they were talking about; Blackhall shifted two loose slabs at the end of the shop, and they both went out; I went to bed and fell asleep; about the middle of the night I got up and smoked my pipe, and thought I heard some one walking outside; I went towards the end of the blacksmith's shop; I saw two of the slabs shifted, and asked who was there, and the answer was Brummy, and he came through; I went up towards him, and he said, is this you, Charley?  Watkins is the man; he asked me where was the sentry, and I said I did not know; he asked me if I would be kind enough to see where he was; I went to the corner of the shop where I could see all over the yard and saw the sentry sitting in the mess shed; his arms were folded and his head resting on his arms; when I came back Watkins was all in a totter of shaking; I said it was a fine night, and asked him if he was cold; he said I would shake equally as bad if I had been with him, as they had been at old Green's, and Blackhall had got shot; I asked if he was killed, and he said, very nearly; Watkins had no shoes on; he said he had lost them, and did not know what he should do for a pair, he said he had left them behind along with Blackhall's; I told him I would find him a pair in the morning, if that would do; about an hour after this there was a muster; Sergeant Walpole, Green and acting Corporal Lewis mustered us; they first called us by name, and then counted us; the sergeant counted us, called us by name, and then made us shew a pair of trowsers each; when I had had the conversation with Watkins, he asked me how I was to get into the hut; the door was bolted on the outside, and I went out with him and unbolted the door, and bolted it after Watkins; the sentry was fast asleep; this was about an hour before the sergeant mustered us; there was neither bolt nor lock on our door; it was hung on one hinge; it was unusual to see men out at night; any of the men could get out at night; several robberies were committed about that time by the Stockade men; the sentry's pistol was lying alongside him; I saw Martin the next day; he did not sleep in the Stockade; about half-past six I saw him and Denley standing near the gate, I went and fed the bullocks and Martin came over and said this is a bad job that has happened to Blackhall; I said it is a very bad job, you managed it very bad; he said how do you know I managed it at all, and I said I knew all about it for Brummy had told me; he said ``Brummy be —, for  two pins I would go and knock his brains out;” I said what for telling me, and he said no, for letting Blackhall come as far as here, for if I had had time to have come with him I would have knocked his brains out; I asked his reason, and he said, I would not have let him reach here to tell tales; I said, it is better as it is, for I have known Blackhall a long time and never knew him to do any thing wrong; he asked me if he had better bolt or see it out; I said stop, for it may all wear away and come to nothing and he said he would take my advice; I then accused him of being a fool for going to a man's house knowing there were fire-arms; he said he knew there was a gun, but he had been told by one of Browne's falling party that it was good for nothing; he did not mention the man's name, but said he had something to eat and drink in the house, and if he had been there earlier in the night, he would have caught them drunk as he knew they had a bottle of rum; he did not say where he had met Blackhall and Watkins; I never heard from either of the prisoners what had become of the money; the next morning Watkins got an old pair of shoes from me; there were plenty of old shoes under my bed.

Cross-examined - The day before the robbery was done, I fetched the beef; Green came with me; I did not tell Blackhall that Green had gone home drunk; I did not tell Brewer that I had £4 belonging to Green; I was flogged once or twice for running away; I have been flogged different times; I was reckoned a trustworthy man, worthy of a secret, and I did not like to tell the sentry when Watkins went out; I was considered a game man; I was guilty of the highway robbery for which I was sent out; I do not know why I was sent Goat Island as soon as I arrived; I was often in trouble while I was at the Stockade; I cannot say properly how many robberies I have been concerned in at Illawarra; quite a dozen and always had my share; I had no share of the plunder of their robbery; I was charged with some things that I was innocent of; I have given information in several cases; I was a week in confinement and had given information on other charges before I spoke of this; Mr. Holden told me that I had better speak the truth, but he did not tell me that I should not be prosecuted; I was brought up to the seafaring business when I was a boy, but I went over to England and lived several years by gambling; I was however sent to gaol for gambling at fairs; I have been four years in the Colony and have taken every opportunity of plundering; that was my study.

Sergeant Walpole, 80th Regt. - I recollect the night that Green was robbed; about two o'clock I was alarmed by the guard that a man had been shot; Travers was on sentry; I went to the hospital and saw Blackhall covered with blood; I asked what had been the matter and Green requested me to go round and count the prisoners and I went round and they were all present; I did not call their names, I could see them as they lay in bed; I went with Green to his place and saw two pair of shoes lying against the stump of a tree; I came back again and went into the blacksmith's shop, where some of the prisoners slept and examined their shoes and clothes, and I said it was no use going to the other huts for they could not get out there without either the sentry seeing or hearing them; I sent for the Doctor and gave orders that no man should be allowed out until I saw whether he had a pair of shoes; each man had a pair on; I requested the Doctor to wait with me until the stockkeepers, Martin and Denley came in; Martin had a pair of shoes that were sown in the uppers; I asked him if he had no better shoes and he asked me if I didn't remember he shewed me the same shoes before he went out the previous night; I remembered he did; about six men slept in the blacksmiths' shop, which was unfastened; the other huts were fastened on the outside with a bolt; there was nothing to prevent men in the blacksmiths' hut from going out of their own hut and letting the other men out; there were fifty men in the Stockade at that time guarded by thirteen soldiers; I went down there in August last; I heard of one or two robberies being committed; at that time none of the men were in irons; that Stockade is now removed about seven miles from Wollongong; they are kept in boxes and locked up at night; they are not allowed either fire or candles; there is a dining shed for them by day: the men were removed to that station on January 5th; I do not recollect where Watkins slept that night; one of the pairs of shoes fitted Blackhall; the other was a larger pair of good shoes; I am not positive whether they were fellows; I did not particularly notice Watkins but I am sure they all had shoes on.

Cross-examined - I recollect Green said he thought one of the men must be an Irishman by his voice; from their voices I should think that both Watkins and Martin are Englishman.

Green recalled - I said I believed the tall man was an Irishman; I said he was tall because he hit above the door; I believe Martin to be the man that stood at the door.

This was the case for the Crown. - Martin said that his voice was not anything like a Irishman's; Watkins pointed out that the sergeant positively contradicted Newell, as he swore that when he came out of the hut he had shoes on.  Martin called -

Thomas Brewer - I belong to the Illawarra Stockade; I remember Newell asked me for the loan of a few shillings until he could change a £1 note; it was three or four days after Green's robbery; I lent him four shillings; Mr. Sheaffe used to allow us to work in our own time; I was a blacksmith.

Cross-examined - This was in October; Mr. Sheaffe left several months before that; I got the money from a man at Kiama, that I made an axe for; working for people is all knocked on the head now; I did not ask Newell where he got the £1 note, but I knew that he used to work.

His Honor in summing up, pointed out the extreme caution with which the evidence of such a man as Newell ought to be received, and the Jury acquitted both Webster and Martin, who were remanded on other charges.Sydney Gazette 15 February 1838

(By A Friend.)

Corrimal and the South Coast-district lost one of its most highly respected and esteemed citizens, early on Saturday morning last, when Mrs. Matthew Green, of Main Road, Corrimal, passed away after a very short illness, in her 76th year.

The news of Mrs. Green's death came as a great shock to the community, as Green was out motoring the previous day, and seemed to be in excellent spirits, although she had not been feeling well for some days previously.

Naturally, her death came as a great blow and shock to the family.

The late Mrs. Green, was born in Glebe, Newcastle (N.S.W.) in 1857. It was there she met Mr. Green. They were married in 1876. Some 3 or 4 years later, Mr. and Mrs. Green came to the South Coast and resided at Keira for some time, afterwards living at Mt. Kembla and Austinmer, where Mr. Green followed his profession as engineer. From Austinmer, the Green family came to Corrimal in 1886 to their present home, where they have resided ever since. Mrs. Green saw Corrimal grow from a small bush town to its present size and dimensions of some 4000 to 5000 inhabitants.

Every charitable movement found a most willing worker in Mrs. Green.

The work performed by her for the soldiers in the great war will never be forgotten. The money she assisted in collecting for the Corrimal cot in the Royal Alexandria Children's Hospital, year after year, would amount to hundreds of pounds. The Deaf and Dumb Institute, local hospitals, schools, relief committees and kindred organisations received the support of Mrs. Green, who worked very hard for these deserving causes.

Mrs. Green, was also an active Church worker, she had been a member of the local Methodist Church since her arrival in Corrimal some 37 years previously. The present building is a monument to her work in this direction.

The whole district mourns the loss of the one whose life was devoted to assisting those in distress & whose aim in life was to make the world a much brighter and happier one for all. Her charming personality and bigness of heart made her loved by all sections of the community.

The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. A short service was held in the Methodist Church…Those who are left to mourn the loss of a devoted wife and mother are:- Mr. Matthew Green (husband), George and William (Corrimal), Oliver (Orange), and Albert Victor (Wollongong)— sons.

Mrs. Green is survived by two sisters— Mrs. John Green and Mrs. M. Woods (Newcastle). Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 12 May 1933 p 8

FANNY PURDY. Newcastle, 17th Nov., 1879. Newcastle Morning Herald and Miners' Advocate (NSW: 1876 - 1954) Thursday 20 November 1879 p 3

Domestic Infelicity.


Newcastle, Thursday. — At the local police court to-day a miner named John Greenwood was charged with having maliciously wounded his wife, Fanny Jane Greenwood, with intent to do her grievous bodily harm. The evidence for the prosecntion went to show that she and accnsed had been drinking is a neighbor's house, and the latter told her if she did not come out he would do for her. She complied with the request, and as soon as both were in their own house he caught her by the hair and threw her on the ground, and followed up by deliberately opening a pocket knife and inflicting a terrible gash in her throat two inches long and about half an inch deep. The woman's little girl rushed to her mother's rescue, and threw herself across her father, crying out for him not to kill her. She then managed to extricate herself from her husband's grasp, and rushed from the house. The brute of a husband expressed regret that he had not finished her whilst be was about, and whilst in the dock at the court he preserved a callous demeanor, and seemed to think the whole affair of the most trivial consequence. The medical evidence showed that had the wound been a very little deeper the injuries must have proved fatal.

The accused stated that his wife was in the habit of cohabiting with men, and on the morning of the terrible affair he found her in a bedroom with a stranger. A prima facie case was established, and accused was committed for trial at the Maitiand Quarter Sessions, the Police Magistrate stating that the accused would probably be tried on a capital charge.

Sudden Death of a Woman.

ABOUT five o'clock yesterday morning a married woman named Fanny Greenwood died in the hospital, having been admitted in an unconscious condition late on the previous evening.

At three o'clock in the afternoon an inquest was held on the body in the Naval Brigade Hotel, Watt-street, before Mr. G. C. Martin, J.P., the district coroner, and a jury of twelve.

Dr. William Clarke, of Hamilton, deposed that on the previous evening, about a quarter to 8 o'clock, he received a message from Constable

Millington to go and see a woman in Islington. Witness at once proceeded to the place, which is situated off Chinchen-street, and found a woman lying on the floor in the doorway, between the front and back rooms. She was in convulsions and perfectly unconscious. Witness ordered her removal to the hospital, where she died at 5 o'clock that morning. In conjunction with Dr. Harris, witness held a post mortem examination at the hospital shortly after noon. They found the body fairly well nourished, and it was that of a woman of about 40 years of age. There was fatty degeneration of the kidneys, liver, and heart, the other organs being more or less healthy. In the opinion of witness, death was due to uremia, caused by the diseased state of the kidneys. The woman was doubtless a heavy drinker, and that would account for her condition. There was a bruise over each eye, probably caused while the woman was throwing her self about when in convulsions. There was little furniture in the house, the only articles being a few bags and blankets. There was only a little girl with her.

Constable Millington, stationed at Islington, deposed that early on the previous evening he was informed by a man that Mrs. Greenwood was very ill. He proceeded to the house and found two women there, while the deceased was lying on the floor. Witness at once sent for Dr. Clarke, as the woman seemed to be in convulsions. Acting under the doctor's orders, witness secured a 'bus, and conveyed her to the hospital, where Dr. Doyle examined her, and pronounced her suffering from a drunken fit. Witness had known the woman for four years. She was very intemperate in her habits, and was out at all hours of the night. Her husband was at present in gaol serving a sentence of five years for attempting to cut her throat, nearly four years ago. She had no friends in the place, but a man named Nesbitt had lived with her since her husband was placed in gaol. Her little boy, aged 5 years, lived with her, and he was taken to the police-station. Witness believed that she had other children, but they were in Sydney.

Margaret Ann Wood, a married woman, residing in Islington-street, Islington, next door to the deceased, stated that she knew her under the name of Nesbitt. On the previous evening, about 6 o'clock, a woman named Mrs. Williams called on witness and told her that the deceased had a bad fit. Witness gave Mrs. Williams a cup of water and then went into the house to see the woman.

She was lying on the floor in a fit, and witness went and got a Mrs. Hale to go to her assistance. The deceased appeared to be a woman who was continually drinking, and was in poor circumstances. She had only lived in the house about a fortnight.

Joseph Daniel Wood, a bootmaker, husband of the last witness, gave similar evidence. The deceased leased the house from witness, and ten days ago she had had a fit. Witness on hearing of it went to the place, and found the woman lying on the door step with her face in the mud. With assistance he carried her inside, and she recovered. She was a very heavy drinker, and appeared to be a woman of loose habits.

James Beath, licensee of the Changing Station Hotel, Islington, also gave evidence, and said that he had known the deceased for about nine months. She frequented his hotel, and often carried away drink.

This concluded the evidence, and the jury, without retiring, brought in a verdict in accordance with the medical evidence, adding that her death was caused by intemperance. Newcastle Morning Herald and Miners' Advocate (NSW : 1876 - 1954) Friday 11 December 1891 p 6

Many in the district were sorry to learn the sad news of the death of Mrs Isabella Grey which took place at her residence Belmont, on Wednesday morning last. About two months ago Mrs Grey contracted pneumonia and had a hard battle to pull through. She seemingly had gained convalescence, when it was found fluid had gathered on the lung and she had to undergo the operation for its removal. Again Mrs. Grey appeared to rally and hope was revived in the hearts of those to whom she was near and dear. On Monday night last, however, she suddenly took a bad turn, and gradually getting weaker, passed, away at the age of 72 years, on the day before stated. Mrs. Grey was one of the fine old fashioned type of gentlewomen, of distinguished presence and much natural intelligence, with a witty tongue. Warm-hearted hospitality was hers; and a kindly disposition. She had strong convictions, and the courage of them - was a loyal and sincere friend. And of her, it may truly be said, she reached the highest attribute of womanhood in a noble and unselfish motherhood and she richly deserved the wide respect and esteem in which she was held.

She lived an exemplary life, and was a staunch and devoted member of the Church of England, and during her illness regarded the separation from her loved ones with Christian fortitude and resignation. Mrs. Grey leaves to deeply mourn their loss her daughters Mrs. T. Brown jun., Mrs. J. E. Creelman, and Mrs. J. Winley, all of whom reside in the district and her sons Messrs James and Herbert Grey, and 12 grandchildren Mrs. Grey was the daughter of the late Mr. George Grey, one of the good old pioneers of the district; and two brothers Wm. Grey, Kiama, and Mr Jno Grey Summer Hill, with her sisters Mrs. W. Grey and Miss Grey, of Ben Eden, survive her. She was born on board ship in the Great Australian Bight, as her parents were on the way out from Ireland in 1841.

The funeral took place on Friday afternoon, the Rev H. M. Archdall Pearce officiating and had a representative attendance. Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved family, especially for the daughters who devotedly nursed and cared for their mother in her long illness and were in constant attendance, even with a trained nurse in charge.

Nurse Cooney with her unceasing kindness and skilful care, has gained the heartfelt thanks of each member of the family, also Dr. Beith in his unremitting attention for everything that skilful nursing, and medical attention could do was done, to prolong a valued life.

Jolly v Jolly.

Emma Edith Jolly, formerly Prendergast, asked for a dissolution of her marriage with Henry Jolly on the grounds of drunkenness, non-support, and cruelty. The parties were married according to the rites of the Methodist Church, at Newtown, in September, 1894.

Mr. Kershaw appeared for petitioner, and Mr. Bertram for respondent, who denied petitioner's charges. Petitioner said she was 19 years of age when she was married to respondent. On one occasion he struck her in the eye and blackened It while he was under the influence of liquor, and threatened to injure her other eye also. He had also been cruel to their child, who was the only issue of the marriage. Respondent suffered from rheumatism. Petitioner had been obliged to leave her husband on account of his ill-treatment of her. During the last four years petitioner had worked and maintained herself. Respondent was a booking clerk in the Railway Department when petitioner married him. In 1897 she first noticed that her husband drank to excess. He lost several good positions through drink. Petitioner forgave her husband several times.

Corroborative evidence was given for the petitioner.

Respondent gave evidence. He said he was dismissed from the railway service for travelling without a ticket, and inducing a member of the public to do the same. It was not through drunkenness. He suffered from rheumatism and degeneration of the heart. His wife had often consented to him having a drink. The stories told by his wife and other women were untrue. His wife was very cantankerous, and had often hit him.

He had also stopped her from hitting the child. His wife was always nasty when he came home. She did not want to have any more children. He gave his wife all his earnings, and she used to give him a couple of shillings for himself. When he was sick and on the lodge funds his wife received the sick pay. On one occasion when he came home, about 7 p.m., and asked for tea, his wife told him with an oath that he could wait for it, and had then rushed at him and knocked him over. He believed the proceedings were brought because his wife could not get enough money to dress as she pleased.

Witness had written eight affectionate letters to petitioner asking her to return to him.

He had kept copies of the letters. About seven years ago he blackened his wife's eye, during a row with her. She had rushed at him and got herself hurt somehow. He did not strike her. Witness drank beer generally.

Witness signed the pledge at Bulli in order to induce his wife to return to him. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Thursday 16 March 1905 p 3

His Honor granted a decree nisi, returnable in three months, costs to be paid by respondent, who was found guilty of habitual drunkenness and cruelty. It was directed that petitioner should have the custody of the child. The Daily Telegraph (Sydney, NSW: 1883 - 1923) Friday 17 March 1905 p 8

As recorded in our last issue; Mrs. John Grigg passed away at her late home 'Rosedale,' Farm 32 Leeton, on Monday last following a long and trying illness. Of an unassuming character, the dear old lady found a place in the hearts of a large circle of friends on the irrigation area. Mrs Grigg made her friends troubles her own worries, especially in regard to sickness, her own family having suffered much in that regard. Mrs. Grigg came to the area from Port Kembla with her husband 19 years ago last February. That was at the beginning of settlement on the Yanco irrigation area. Theirs was one the first homes to be erected.

Their first Christmas was a most unhappy one, as three of their babies died within three weeks — Jack, aged 2 years 8 months, on December 24, 1912; Doris, aged 5 years, Dec. 29, and Leonard, 15 months, on Jan. 15, 1913. When the pneumonic influenza outbreak swept through the country in 1919, their son, Murray, died in the Leeton Hospital. The late Mrs. Grigg was well-known for her hospitality. , On many occasions she threw her home open in the cause of charity, and hospital and band functions ere quite a regular; thing at 'Rosedale.'…. more at The Murrumbidgee Irrigator (Leeton, NSW: 1915 - 1954) Friday 8 May 1931 p 1
