An interesting link with the past has been broken by the death, at the age of 83 years, of Mrs. Mackinnon, widow of the Rev. Roger Mackinnon, who was for a quarter of a century the pastor at St. Peter's Church, North Sydney. Mrs. Mackinnon passed away in her sleep yesterday at the residence of her son, Dr. Mackinnon, North Sydney. , She was a Frenchwoman, with a passionate love and faith in her country, which carried her through the blackest moments of the war secure in the ultimate triumph of France and the Allies. Her father, Captain St Bertin, fought in the Egyptian and Russian campaigns under Napoleon, and her mother was kin to the old Huguenot family of de Rosny.

Perhaps the most interesting period of the deceased lady's life was the 16 years of her girlhood and young womanhood spent at Newbury Port, Mass. Here she became the intimate friend of the Emersons (Ralph Waldo was then about 19), Whittlers, and the Tafts, she kept up a correspondence with her many years after her departure from America. Hers was the America of the pre-Civil war, and her reminiscences of the fine company of thinkers-of their simple and sincere lives, among whom it was her good fortune to live-were of deep interest.

Later, Miss St Berlin went with friends to Malta, where many Crimean troops were stationed, and where she met Mr. Mackinnon, who had been Invalided there. After he joined the ministry he came with his bride to New South Wales. Throughout his strenuous pioneering work for the Presbyterian Church Mrs Mackinnon was his devoted helpmate. She leaves one son. Dr. Mackinnon, and two daughters-Mrs. A. S. Vallack and Mrs. R. Kirkpatrick. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Friday 20 June 1919 p 9

In 1872 “the Presbyterian congregation at Hill End has unanimously called the Rev. Roger Mackinnon, of Wollongong, to become their minister.”

A Woman Wanders from Home AND IS FOUND DEAD IN THE BUSH- A TERRIBLE TALE, Mrs . McLachan an Industrious woman well known in Kiama, wife of Lachlan McLachlan, quarryman, of Kiama wandered away from her home near the old toll bar on Tuesday last, and met with a terrible end in one of the wildest spots in the vicinity of Saddleback, She was seen at 6 a.m on Tuesday morning passing the Pioneer Factory, going in the direction of Jamberoo. Later on in the same day she was seen by two persons, Messrs. Herbert and Johnston in the vicinity of Mount Brandon, travelling up Saddleback, but was not afterwards seen alive. She is reported to have been rather strange in ther manner, and is stated to have said several times prevlous to leaving home that she was going away into the bush, to die, She was the mother of a very large family, seven of whom are now living. The local police , in charge of Senior Sergaeant Brayne, with a blacktracker and a number of civilans, diligently searched for traces of this missing woman on Wednesday and Thursday without success, and with faint hope of finding the unfortutanate Woman alive, Yesterday the party of searchers were successful, through the instrumentality of the black tracker, in discovering the body of the missing woman at the foot of a waterfall; about 80 feet high, just below Mr. Johnston's house. The deceased had apparently jumped over the falls, The body presented a horrible sight, The woman had been pregnant, and a new born babe, apparently fully developed, was discoverd lying as if having been born at the time of the terrible leap from above. It is surmised that the suicide, or accident, as the ease may be, took place on Tunesday. The place where the bodies were found was almost inaccessible, and a track two chainss in length had to be cut to convey them out, The remains were brought to Klama last night.

Florence Hestor deposed : I am the wife of Edward Hester, and reside at Tarrawanna. My husband is a laborer. The child, W. E. Hester, whose body the jury has seen, was my son. He was 1 year and 9 months old. I last saw my child alive by himself in the fowl-house about half-past 12 o'clock yesterday. He was playing by himself in the backyard. I was in the yard doing some washing. My sister-in-law, Mary Hester, was in the yard with us, but left us about 20 minutes before I discovered the body of the child. I was washing with my back towards the child.

About a quarter of an hour after I saw him in the fowl-house I missed him. I went to look for him, calling his name. I went to the hole in the yard and saw the child lying on his back, with his head under water. The whole body was under the water, but the lighter clothes were floating. The hole is about 2ft. deep where his head was. I cannot account for the child getting in the hole,- I pulled him out, and called out for assistance, and my sister-in-law and come neighbors came in. We did everything possible to restore him, but the efforts were of no use. The child's life was not insured in any way. John Hester, my husband's brother, dug the hole to keep water in some time ago. I told my husband once that I considered the hole dangerous, for fear any of the children would fall in. I told him he ought to fill it up or put logs on it. He promised to do so, but never did it, and I forgot to remind him again.

Mary Alice Hester deposed ; Yesterday, about 12.30, I heard my sister-in-law screaming, and went to her as soon as possible. I saw her with the deceased child in her arms. I examined him and thought he was dead. I then went for some of the neighbors, but when we came back we saw the child was dead. Mrs. Payne, one of the neighbors, tried to restore it but failed.

I never considered whether it was dangerous to little ohildren running about the yard alone. The watarhole has been there for about 15 months. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Thursday 15 July 1897 p 2

Mrs. Allan McLean, of Kiama, died at the age of 80. Australian Town and Country Journal (NSW : 1870 - 1907) Wednesday 20 June 1906


Among the numerous families who were forced, as it were, to leave” their native heathn-owing to bad land laws-to seek out homes, if not fortunes, in a then almost unknown country during the late thirties and early forties was one which emigrated from the Parish of Croy, Inverneeshire, Scotland, to Australia in the year 1839.

This family was Donald Anderson, together with his wife and a family, comprising Ann, John, Sanmuel, Margaret and Mary. Mr. Donald Anderson remained in Sydney about twelve months, where Margaret died, and shortly afterwards Kate was born, Mr. Anderson then decided to come to Illawarra, and to due course landed at Wollongong. Shortly after their arrival in Wollongong, this family, in common with hundreds of other families in those primitive days of advancement, found themselves perched on a bullock waggon surrounded with a load of general merchandise en route for Jamberoo. The first night of this dreary journey was spent at John Terry Hughes' station on the banks of the Mancquarie Rivulet (now known as Albion Park). The next day .the journey was resumed, and concluded, which in all human probability was, hailed with delight by every member of the family, as it is said no pen could describe, nor the keenest imagination conceive the emigrants'. feelings of those days, with nothing to see on either side of. The lonely track but dense bush or gigantic forests of trees, and no idea of any monetary future in front. At that time there was no sign of a house or a home between John Terry.Hughes' station and Captain Hart's brewery at Woodslack,Jamberoo .No, nothing but chained gangs of humanity,,being driven like brute beasts to and from their wretched hovels to make roads, by men far more coarser than those in the chain.

Those of us who can remember some. thing of the -later, pioneerings days. Know full well that luxuries or refinements monopolies. .Everyone seemed to settle down to the stern realities of bush life. and bush habits. Many, of course; retained as much of the home customs and habits as was complatible with their surroundings, whilst others drifted away into all sorts of conditions; the few remained steadfast, working to at future, thus showing how difficult it is to drum the aboriginal nature out of some people, let visionaries say what they may.

Among. the emblems of Celtic natiolinlity not one is more cherilshed by the Scottish race than their homes, thereforo, Mr. Anderson soon.founded a home on Mr. John Ritchie's esteat adjoining the Cole properties of to-day. Here the .subject of my sketch, the late Mrs. Allan M'Lean ' was married to the late Michael Carberry, by whom she had five children, of whom, only two are living.' Betsey married Mr. Johnston Graham, both, being dead; Maggie married Mr. John Young, she is dead; Kate married Mr. Hector M'Kinton, she is dead ; leaving Mrs. Wallace (of New. Zealand) and Mr. Frank Carberry (of Jerrara) the only surviving, members of that very much respected pioneer family. Later on the lately deceased lady married the late Mr. Allan M'Lean, by whom she had a children, Jessie married the late Mr. William Charmers, he is since dead; Annie married Mr. William Hutt, she has since died Ettie married Mr. James Walker, he is dead ; Florrie married. Mr Lees, she is dead leaving behind; Mrs.Charmers, Mrs. Walker;, Mrs, Morris; and Mr. John M'Lean; the only survivors;' of the second marriage. Mr Allan M'Lean died about 18 years ago, `The only surviving member of the Anderson family is Mr John Anderson, of Sydney.:

In or about the year 1842 the late Mr. Donald Anderson and Mr. Michael Carberry, purchased adjourning farms on the banks of the Jerrara Creek, and passed through all the hardships and troubles of pioneering (cont. ) The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Tuesday 19 June 1906 p 2

WE regret to record this week the decease, at her residence, Gerringong, on Sunday morning, the 14th instant, of Mrs. Sarah Maclean, in her 73rd year. The following has been communicated to us by a member of her family :-“ Mrs, Maclean was the youngest daughter of the late Mr. John Macintyre, sheepfarmer, of Argyleshire, Scotland, who with his wife (nee Jessie Macdonald) were well known for their sterling qualities of character in their private family life and in their unassuming social relations of life; which were calculated to exercise a strong influence on the character of their children, respecting the death of one of whom-the Rev. D. Macintyre, of Kincardine–the ' London Scotsman ' said : -' No one who knew the man-so warm hearted, impulsive, and cheerful, so kindly in all his acts-can fail to lament in his death the loss of a personal friend. The Highlands can ill spare men like Donald Macintyre.' Though Mrs. Maclean's sphere of energy and influence was confined chiefly to her family circle she inherited to a high degree the strong, good sense and the kindly disposition which marked the character of her parents. Others besides those who were immediately within the pale of her family circle know the cheerful fortitude of her nature under a more than ordinary share of domestic afflictions. But her unwavering devotedness to the interests of her family under heavy disadvantages, that rendered her life almost heroic, wae N s chief feature of her character. Even increasing years, beyond the alloted period     of human life, relaxed not her constancy   to maternal duties. The repose and retire- ment from active family attentions to which her years entitled her, independently of   what filial affections would proscribe, were rejected in order that some member of her family whom the troubles of life had endeared to her might have her kindly counsel and attention to the last moment. But these traits of character rested on, and were supported by, a strong yet simple and confiding faith in the helper of the helpless.' Her Saviour was a personal deity, her faith that which throws a halo of brightness around the deathbed and emits the rays of hope from the darkness of the grave; for it was not that of creeds and abstruce doctrines which creates sects and separates communities and even families by barriers more impenetrable than the edifices in which they separately worship. Though she severed the ancient landmarks of Presbyterianism, her simple church was the temple of the heart, and her altar of daily inspiration The Book, whose simple   pages were to her ever radiant with the re- generating and invigorating light of divine truth and love. Physically, Mrs. Maclean was blessed with an uncommon health. For the last twenty-five years of her life, until a few days prior to her decease, a doctor was not required to prescribe, and when Dr. Lacey was called soon after her prostrationt he failed to discover a trace of malady of any kind, but pronounced her weakness to arise simply from natural decay. A few hours prior to her death she walked as she was wont to do to her old arm chair, and was in full possession of all her mental faculties and senses unimpaired, till she fell into the pulseless sleep. She brought up a family of sons and daughters respectably, and left them in the influence of her character a legacy, in its far-reaching results incomparably superior to ' the treasures which the moth and rust do corrupt.' ” Her remains were interred in the Congregational portion of the public Cemetery, Gerringong, on Monday afternoon, the Rev. W. Riding officiating.

When her first husband died she carried on her husband’s cart business.

Harriett Weller, or Ellis, 11 years of age, in custody, was charged with stealing the Missionary box, containing £2 or £3, from the Church of England Sunday school. A. considerable amount of evidence was taken, from which it appeared that the box was left in a press in the school ; that the key was left in the door from Saturday morning till Sunday morning, and the girl, finding the door thus accessible, went in and took the box, and having broken it open with a stone, hid it under the play-shed at the Public school, where it was found with about 16s in coppers still left in it, the police traced where she had spent 10s or 11s, but she declined to point out where the balance (more than she had spent) was hid. It also transpired that she was the adopted child of John Weller, who said he had received her when 24 days old from a woman calling herself Mrs. Ellis, and that she had take the habit of sleeping out of doors. She had been live nights away during the last three weeks. Ordered to be sent to the Shaftesbury Reformatory for 4 years.

R. v. Doyle [1840] NSWSupC 5
Supreme Court of New South Wales
Dowling C.J., 1 February 1840

John Doyle was indicted for ravishing Mary McMahon, at Wollongong, on the 9th July.

The prosecutrix, a girl about fourteen years of age, swore positively to the offence having been committed by the prisoner.  The girl’s uncle swore that he found a hat at the place where she alleged that the offence was committed, and in the hat was a certificate of the prisoner’s character, which he produced.  Dr. Osborne swore that on the day, on the evening of which the offence was committed, the prisoner shewed him the certificate: he also swore that he examined the prosecutrix, and was confident she had been recently violated, and there were several bruises on different parts of her person, which showed that there had been considerable violence.  After she was served with a subpoena, the prosecutrix was told that if she prosecuted the prisoner he would be hanged, and then his ghost would haunt her; and she was persuaded to go out of the way to Campbelltown, where she resided three weeks, co-habiting with a sawyer.  There were some slight discrepancies between the evidence given by the prosecutrix in Court, and before the Magistrate, but not on any material point.

Mr. Purifoy addressed the Jury at considerable length, dwelling with great force upon the discrepancies of the evidence, and the character of the prosecutrix.

The Chief Justice summed up at some length, recapitulating the whole evidence, and the Jury, after a few minutes’ absence, returned a verdict of Not Guilty.Sydney Herald 3 February 1840

SATURDAY. FEB. 8, 1840.

Edward;Woollhan, Michael Woollahan, Ann Woollahan (their aunt) and Francis Darling, all of Wollongong, who had on the 6th instant, had been convicted of seducing and enticing away from her home on pretence that Darling would marry her, Mary M'Mahon, a girl of thirteen years of age, with the intent to prevent her from giving evidence on his trial, against a man named Doyle, who had commited a rape upon her, were now brought up for judgment.

The clerk of the court having read a petition from the prisoners praying for a lenient sentence His Honor after perusing and considering the same, proceeded to pass judgment on the prisoners; observing that he could give no credence to their assertions in the petition, in opposition to the evidence on oath,, and the verdict of twelve, respectable men against them ; that their crime was one of great atrocity, and the guilt of the old woman, herself a mother; peculiarly aggravated. His Honor than sentenced Anne Woollahan to two years imprisonment in Parramatta Gaol, Edward and Michael Woollahan to two years imprisonment in Sydney Gaol, and Francis Darling to two years hard labour on the roads. The two young Woollahan* then with some difficulty withdrew their aunt from the bar, where she stood wringing her hands crying bitterly, and supplicating mercy.

Profound regret was expressed among her wide circle of friends in the Fairy Meadow and Balgownie centres when it became known on Saturday last that Mrs. Mary Mc Mahon, wife of Mr. Patrick McMahon of Balgownie, had passed away at the Wollongong . District Hospital at tho advanced age of 85 years. The deceased lady had been in indifferent health for some time, but this; combined with her great weight of years, did not prevent Mrs. McMahon from maintaining the bright and cheerful disposition that had characterised her throughout her long sojourn on this 'earth. Arriving in Australia from Ireland at a very early age, the deceased lady settled down with her parents in the Illawarra district, in which ceritre she had resided coritinuisly till the time, of her death. After her marriage she resided at Fairy Meadow for a great number of years, and subsequently removed to Balgownie, in which center by her kindly disposition and noble neighbourly qualities, she became respected by all with whom she came in contact.

Of her large family of seven Sons and one daughter, three sons and a daughter survive her, while two sons made the supreme sacrifice in the Great War, another son dying in West Australia, and the youngest passing away in this district some few years ago. The high esteem in Which Mr. Mc .Mahon and, his family are held in this district was amply demonstrated by the huge number of persons who followed the remains to their last resting place in the Roman Catholic cometery at Wollongong. At the church, in which for many years the deceased lady had. been a devout worshipper, a short service was conducted by the Rev.Father Callaghan, who subseluently performed the last sad rites at the graveside.; The pall bearers vvere representatives of the North Illawarra Council, the Mayor of which (Ald. McMahon) is a son of the deceased. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 2 August 1940 p 6

Her husband George was the first of four brothers to arrive in Australia, his brother Robert and his wife Martha nee Savage also lived in the Illawarra. They were brought out by John Miller, George being listed as a farm labourer. However, the baptismal details of several children born to George and Sarah in Sydney between 1842 and 1846 describe him as a baker while in Ford's Commercial Directory of Sydney 1851 he is described as a commission agent. Sarah, at least, must have been in Illawarra in 1850 as it is known that a son was born to them at Wollongong that year. It is possible that George was carrying on a bakery business in Sydney until he leased land at Jamberoo from Henry Gray in 1857. Due to cattle destroying his crops and his cattle dying and other misfortunes George was declared bankrupt in 1857/8. By 1875 George and Sarah were living in Paddington where he is listed again as a baker.

Deceased and her husband retired to Lismore some seven years ago to spend the eve of their lives alongside Lismore 's beautiful Cathedral.

During her illness of two months she was attended by the Rev. Father O 'Byrne, and was visited by his Lordship Bishop Carroll, Right Rev. Monsignor McGuire, V.G., and the Sisters of St. Vincent's Hospital. Besides a sorrowing husband she leaves two sisters — Mrs. Hanrahan (Gympie), and Mrs. Nesbitt (Waverley), and one brother, Mr. Con.

The year 1923 has seen the hand of Death claim many of the oldest pioneers of the district, and the passing of Mrs. George McPhail, senr., at her home at West Dapto on Friday last removes one who, together with her largo family of 12 children, have been closely associated with the history and progress of the Illawarra. The death of Mrs McPhail caused quite a shock, as the deceased despite her 83 years, was hale and hearty until a couple of weeks ago, when she fell at her home and sustained injuries which brought about her death.

The late Mrs. McPhail was married while still in her teens, and for 65 years lived at West Dapto. Prior to the funeral on Saturday last a service was conducted at the late home of Mrs. McPhail, and at the interment which took place in the Presbyterian portion of the Wollongong cemetery… Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 26 October 1923 p 9

The sympathy of the community goes out to Mr. J. McPhail, of Dapto, and the members of his family in the very great loss they have sustained by the death of his wife and their mother, which occurred at Valeseo Private Hospital, Wollongong, on Tuesday morning, after an illness of about ten days. The late Mrs. McPhail was a woman of kindly disposition and Christian character, and she was held in high esteem by a wide circle of friends who to-day mourn the loss of a good friend and neighbour. The late Mrs. McPhail was born 57 years ago at Unanderra, and was the daughter of the late Mr and Mrs. James Waples, 'Canterbury,' Unanderra. In her early days she was a Sunday School teacher in Brownsville C. of E., and held that position up to the time of her marriage, and thus instructed many of the men and women who now are in homes of their own. In 1897 she married Mr. J. McPhail, of West Dapto, and since her marriage has been associated with various activities, of Dapto Presbyterian Church, chiefly the Women's Missionary Association. She at all times has taken a keen interest in the Church. She is survived by a family of four sons and four daughters, viz., Messrs. Colin, Lachlan, Alexander and Tullock McPhail, and Mrs. Cecil Watchhorn, Wollongong, Mrs. Allan Fredericks, South Brisbane, and Misses Jessie and Gwen McPhail. One daughter, Edna, predeceased her mother. Her brothers and sisters are: Mr. Frank Waples and Mr. Joseph Waples, 'Canterbury,' Unanderra; Mrs. J. W. Gorrell, of Berkeley; Mrs. W. Thompson, of Burwood; Mrs. C. H. Smith, Wollongong, and Mrs. Robson, wife of Segt. Robson, of Inverell. The respect and esteem in which the late Mrs. McPhail was-held was abundantly evidenced by the large and representative gathering at the funeral, the cortege reaching right from the cemetery to the homestead, and was attended by people from many outlying centres, including Sydney and Nowra. Prior to the funeral, a short service was held at the homestead by the Rev. Wm. Beck, who also officiated at the graveside. In the course of an address by Mr. Gibson, of Unanderra, who had been closely connected with the family during the Albion Park-Dapto vacancy, mention was made of the sterling qualities of the deceased, and of the way in which her quiet unassuming life had endeared her to all with whom she came in contact. Though the voice has been stilled, her influence will remain in the home, and will be felt for good in many homes in the district Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 26 June 1931 p 7

She was an invalid for many years.


On the 13th instant, one of the most worthy of women, though little known to the community, passed away in the person of the late Mrs. Mead, of Keira-street north. She and her husband, who survives her, arrived in 1857 at Wollongong, which locality continued their place of abode ever afterwards. As a wife, mother, and member of the community she was an example of devotion and unassuming worth, rarely equalled, as only those who knew her best can truly testify. A subject of sore distress for many years by an afflicted partner in life, she suffered and bore the trying ordeal as few could do, and as fortunately few are called upon to endure. In the exceeding kindness of her son (Mr. Arthur Mead, of Mr. F. Wood ward's office), however, she had an enduring and reliable earthly stay that never failed her to the end, he and his wife having attended to her devotedly as long as such was required and could be rendered. At the age of 71 years she passed away quietly as she had lived, and her remains found a last resting-place in the Congregational burial ground.

Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 27 June 1873 p 2


The death of Mrs. Elizabeth Teresa Meany, relict of the late Patrick Joseph Meany, of Ashfield, occurred on the 20th ult., at the residence of her daughter (Mrs. P. J. Ryan), 31 Arthur-street, Randwick, after a brief illness. The news of her death was received by her many friends with the greatest of regret, for she possessed the most sterling qualities, and endeared herself to all with whom she came in contact. The late Mrs. Meany, who was born at Bellambi, .near Wollongong, was married by the late Dean Flanagan, to Mr. P. J. Meany, of the Harbors and Rivers' Department. Her husband predeceased her many years ago. Mrs. Meany spent the greater part of her life at Ashfield, where she had many old and valued friends. Her latter years were spent at Merewether, and in the eastern suburbs. During her late illness, which only extended over ten days, she was. constantly attended by the Rev. Father Smith, M.S.C., who brought her all the convolutions of her holy religion. She was also frequently visited by the Sisters of the Good Samaritan Order, of which community one of her daughters, is a member. The Sis ters of Charity also visited her during her illness. One son, Mr. Arthur Meany (Coramba) and four daughters — Mrs. R. Corbett (Lithgow), Mrs. J. Corbett (Lithgow), Sister M. Clare (Rozelle) and Mrs. P. J. Ryan (Randwick) mourn the loss of a loving mother. On Friday morning, 31st ult., a Requiem Mass was celebrated by the Rev. Father Campbell, M.S.C., for the repose of her soul, and in the afternoon the funeral left the Church of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, Randwick, for Rookwood Cemetery.

Late Mrs. B. J. Meek

There passed away last week at her home in Strathfield, Mrs. B. J. Meek, widow of one of our old and successful ministers, and at one time President of the Conference. She was a tower of strength to her husband in all his ciruits, and after his death at Strathfield, still con tinued in service of that circuit, and was in affectionate esteem of her fellow-members. She died in the faith which had sustained her spiritual life in all the years. We express our sympathy with Miss Meek, who so devotedly looked after her mother, and also to the other members of the family. The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 17 June 1939 p 4

John Marlan, on remand, was charged with indecently assaulting Mary Mellon, at Dapto, on the night of the 17th instant.

Mr. Russell for accused. Mary Mellon produced the night-dress worn by her on the night in question ; it had a mark upon the back of it, which she said was caused by her being knocked down on the earth near the fire-place.

Elizabeth Hamilton deposed that she resided with her husband in a tent near Mrs. Mellon, who on Tuesday night came to her abode trembling like a leaf and with the perspiration dripping off her, and made a complaint ; she had, only a skirt on over her night-dress, and seemed very much excited ; witness returned to her house with her, when she noticed a broken match-box on the floor, and matches strewn about ; also a box knocked over, and the fastening of the front door broken and lying on the floor ; the back of Mrs. Mellon's night-dress was marked with dirt from the floor.

William Mant lived in a tent close to Mrs. Mellon ; he heard a noise in her home on Tuesday night, and heard her call out “Geordie, Geordie,” and “Mrs. Geordie,” and also “Oh, Mant ;” his dog was running backwards and forwards barking between his tent and Mrs. Mellon's, and thinking the animal was annoying her he called out to it ; he also heard Mrs. Mellon say, “You are a dirty low scoundrel, I'll give you in charge in the morning, I'm a decent married woman” ; this was said in a loud and angry tone of voice ; he after-wards heard her go to Hamilton's, and asked what was the matter ; she replied that there had been a man in her tent ; he heard her strike her dog for not barking.

Jacob Greener, living in a tent near by, heard Mrs. Mellon calling out to the Hamilton's, and say, “Get out, you scoundrel, I'm a decent married woman.”

This concluded the evidence for the prosecution.

Accused having been formally charged, said he reserved his defence. He was then committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions on the 9th April ; bail allowed, himself in £100, and two sureties in £50 each. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Thursday 26 March 1896 Page 2

The parties live at the camp at the smelting works ; Mrs. Mellon lives in a bag house of two rooms ; her husband went away on Saturday night, taking a boy with him, and leaving a little girl with her ; he suffered from heart disease and was not able to do hard work ; there were a good many tents in the vicinity.

Her son Alfred was considered ‘naturally of weak intellect and of unsound mind, that if excited by passion he would be likely to commit some deed of violence’ he had frequently assaulted his parents. He ‘also assaulted his mother, by beating her with his fists; sometimes he was very kind, and at other times very cruel’ Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 3 February 1880 p 2

In 1879 Alfred was before the Court having previously charged with being of unsound mind. Elias Merchant said he was blind, and while in bed had been struck by prisoner of whom he was afraid. Mrs. Merchant also gave evidence to the same effect.’ Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 21 October 1879 p 2

Alfred was finally sent to an mental asylum.

The death of a very old resident in the person of Mrs. Jane Marchant (widow of the late E.

Four Cases in One Family

Mrs Meredith, aged 45, wife of Joseph Meredith, miner, died in the Bulli Hospital on Saturday, from typhoid fever. She leaves a large family of young children, the youngest about 18 months old. Two sons and a daughter of Mrs Meredith are inmates of the hospital, suffering from typhoid. The daughter, aged 20, had only been admitted to the institution about an hour prior to her mother's death Three of these cases, including the fatal one, come from a house in Clifton, which stands on the main road leading to Clifton Railway Station and public school. This is the house referred to by the Board of Health some weeks ago, to the effect that when Dr. Willis visited the district he found many of the places hopelessly overcrowded. One was sheltering a family of ten persons, including a fever patient, who was being nursed in the same room in which the family lived, and in which meals were taken. The report continued that the danger of contagion could, therefore, be easily understood. The unfortunate woman who died on Saturday was the mother of the typhoid patient referred to above, and on the date of Dr. Willis' visit she was in the best of health. Her daughter, who was assisting to nurse her brother, was taken to the hospital on Saturday, suffering from typhoid, and the remainder of the family are still residing in the fever stricken house.  The authorities have been asked time after time to take some steps towards safeguarding public health, and also to assist miners to obtain house accommodation, but nothing appears to have been done. Feeling in Clifton is very acute, and residents are demanding that the structure in which so many cases of fever have occurred be destroyed by fire, and a temporary residence provided for the family until something can be done by way of another home being provided for them. Mr Nicholson, M.L.A. for the district, has been urged for some weeks past to arrange for a deputation to interview the Minister for Lands and Minister for Mines on the question, but so far he has not done so. He replied that he had seen the Minister, who stated the matter would be attended to as soon as possible, and that an officer would be sent to Clifton to report. Singleton Argus (NSW : 1880 - 1954) Thursday 16 February 1911 p 4

The typhoid epidemic at Clifton is causing some stir amongst the residents. The case of the Meredith family is indeed a sad one. The mother passed away on Saturday last rather suddenly; her child died some little time previously, while three more children, are at present inmates of the Bulli Hospital. The father had just returned from taking one child to the hospital when he was informed of his wife's death. The husband is left with a large family of young children. On Tuesday last Messrs. G. B. Vickery, A. A. Atkinson, (chief inspector of- mines'), and Hiles (shire sanitary inspector) inspected the infected house, and subsequently Mr. Hiles notified that he had made arrangements to remove the remainder of the family to a vacant allotment at Coledale, where tents and conveniences would be provided. The not taking prompt action. Under the authorities are being cavilled at for circumstances, it is pointed out, the case in question is a rather difficult one for such action to be taken. There are no houses available, and the authorities could not very well turn the family out in the street. ; Neither are there any Crown lands in the vicinity on which to pitch tents, and naturally people strongly object to these being pitched close to their premises. The course adopted, it is thought, is the best that possibly could be taken, and the people of Clifton will feel more at ease when they learn that the hovels where the epidemic was most pronounced are to be demolished. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 17 February 1911 p 9

On Saturday last the cottage occupied by the Meredith family, in which a case of typhoid recently occurred, was burnt down, under orders from Mr. P. J. Carrick, surface manager at the Coalcliff colliery. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 17 February 1911 p 9

House in Clifton, in which typhoid patient Evan Meredith was found: This house contains two rooms, each about 9ft. by 10ft. by 8ft. high, and two lean-to rooms at the back, each about 10ft. by 5 ½ ft. by an average of 61/2/ft. It is built partly of wood and partly of iron, with a shingle roof. The house is in a disgraceful state of repair, and numerous holes as big as the palms of the hand exist in the roof, which must leak like a sieve when it rains. In this house there are living five adults and six children. At time of my visit the members of the family were having their midday meal, and the typhoid patient was lying on a bed almost alongside the meal table. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 17 February 1911 p 8

The inspector reported that the Meredith family had now been in possession of the council's tent at Coledale for five weeks. He asked for instructions as to the length of time they are to be allowed to remain. Decided on the motion of Cr. Dove that one month's notice to quit be given. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 31 March 1911 p 2

MERDITH CASE. Cr. Nicholson moved a motion, notice of which had been given, providing for the payment of a sum of money to Mr. Meredith, Clifton, as compensation for furniture and bedding claimed to have been burnt under instructions from the sanitary inspector. Cr. Tresidder seconded the motion pro forma. There was a list put in of the-goods said to have been so destroyed, the total valuation of which was set down at £13 4s ?d. The sanitary inspector furnished a report denying having given orders at any time for bedding or furniture to be destroyed. The motion was not carried.

An old and respected resident of Kiama in the person of' Mrs. Annie Meredith passed away at her home, Central Park, on Tuesday last in her 69th year. She had not been seriously ill for very long, but the passing of her husband in September last and the severance of their long and happy partnership was a shock from which she never really recovered. The late Mrs. Meredith was Miss Annie Fleet, and was born at Jamberoo. She married Mr. Ernest Meredith, who spent a- long and useful life here, being for many years engaged in the quarrying industry, and also taking part in the civic affairs of the town as an Alderman of the Kiama Council. Mrs. Meredith was devoted to her home and family, and was known and respected as a very kindly neighbour and friend, always ready to assist in cases of sickness and distress.

Mrs. Meredith is survived by two sons, Leslie (Kiama) and Alfred (A.IF.) and two daughters, Ivy Mrs. L. Holz, (Kiama) and Gladys (Kiama) to whom sympathy is extended in their bereavement.

Death From Burning.-An Inquest was held before the Coroner on Saturday, in a tent situated on Anvil Crock, beyond the Lochinvar Railway station, on the body of an infant eleven months old, the son of William Mettam, a navvy employed on the railway. It appeared that on the morning of Wednesday week the mother of the child set it down on the ground outside her tent, to amuse itself. There was a fire outside; but as the child could only crawl, she was not afraid of accident, Hearing a scream, however, she ran out, and saw that the child had crawled to the fire, and that its clothes were in part in flames. She quickly extinguished them, and found what she thought but a slight burn under the left arm In the afternoon she and her husband proceeded with the child to Maitland, and called at the druggist's shop of Mr. Hallam, who gave her some burn oil to apply to the arm, directing her to look in again in four or five days. On Use following Monday she again called on Mr. Hallam, who gave her some ointment to apply, and told her if the inflammation In the shoulder increased she ought to take the child to medical man. Not considering the child in danger, she merely applied the ointment but the child gradually became weaker, ate nothing, and died on Thursday evening. Dr. Wigan, having seen the body, bad no doubt that the burn was the cause of death; but at the same time believed that death had been accelerated by the absence of medical treatment, he added that the treatment of such cases I by a druggist was highly objectionable; It was presumption on the part of the druggist, and betrayed gross Ignorance or neglect on the part or the parents. The verdict was-” burnt accidentally.” The Maitland Mercury and Hunter River General Advertiser (NSW : 1843 - 1893) Tuesday 26 February 1861 p 3

MIDGLEY—COX.—April 5, at Summerhill, Wollongong , Arthur Midgley, second son of James H. Midgley, Esq., of Saffron-Walden, Essex, England, to Mary Doncaster Cox, youngest daughter of George Cox, Esq., M.D., of Wollongong. The Sydney Morning Herald 7 April 1876

There is a family story that Mary married Arthur on the condition that they would remain in Australia. Mary had already seen her sister whisked off to England never to return. However the family legend relates that Arthur received medical advice from his doctor that he had to return to England for his health. So the pair returned to England and lived in Saffron Walden where they raised a family of four daughters. The family has always suspected that the doctor may have been bribed to recommend Arthur's return to England, after all, who was ever sent from Australia to England “for their health”.

Suicide at Wollongong. At the Wollongong railway station on Wednesday morning, a man named William Sandford Miles jumped in front of the engine of the train, arriving from Sydney at 10.40. He was terribly mangled. An inquiry was held in the afternoon of the same day before Mr. J. Hart, deputy-coroner. Deviance was given J.M. Spence,   station-master, to the effect that he saw the deceased and his wife on the platform just before the arrival of the train from Sydney. When the engine was within 20ft, of the deceased, he deliberately jumped on to the line between the rails, and faced the engine, He called out to him to get off the line, but he took no notice, and was struck by the engine, add terribly mutilated, death being almost instantaneous. -It was impossible to stop the train before the deceased was struck, The man's wife deposed that he was a compositor, and had for some months been employed at the Government Printing Office She accompanied him to the station that morning ,and purchased his ticket for Sydney. The train for Sydney was in the siding, waiting for the train from Sydney to arrive. She asked an official of the train if it would back into the platform to take in passengers, and was informed that it would do so. When she turned round, she saw her husband on the line, and the train nearly upon him. She called out, “My God, save him !” and then fainted. Her husband told her that he had left a letter for her which she could read on her return home. She found the letter, in which he bade her goodbye. He seemed more than usually affectionate when he left home that morning. He had no reason to do what he had done. A railway porter deposed that he saw the deceased jump on to the line and stand with one leg in front of the other, and his hands clenched, facing the engine. A finding of suicide was recorded .

Mrs. Miles, late of Keira street, Wollongong, received a cable from Egypt stating that her son, Bugler Vere Miles, had been taken to Heleopolis Hospital suffering from influenza. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 31 March 1916 p 2

Her son’s death nolice has the following information about the family

The voyage proved a disastrous one. An epidemic of measles broke out on board the crowded ship, and of 70 families that formed her living freight only one arrived at the end of the voyage intact, no less than 72 of the number that embarked being consigned to the deep, among them being the two brothers of Henry Millard. At that time things were dull in Sydney, and the family with a number of shipmates proceeded to the place then known as Cowpasture, the estate of the late Sir William and James McArthur. Here they hired themselves to the owners of the Estate; but after two years stay in the locality favourable reports of the Illawarra district reached them, and a trek across the mountains to Wollongong was made. At the age of 14 years Henry was apprenticed to the trade of Courier, and at the expiration of his time, in conjunction with his father, the late Richard Millard, they started for Ulladulla. This was in the year 1854, and the old tannery was established. This establishment proved a most important factor in the progress of the district, giving Continual employment to, comparatively speaking, a large number of hands inside and out Hide, as well as the great assistance a local market for bark must have proved to the struggling settlers.

MILLER.— April 22, at her residence, Willow Cottage, Renfrew Park, Gerringong, Elizabeth, relict of the late Robert Miller, aged 83 years, leaving upwards of one hundred children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and a large circle of friends to mourn their loss. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 8 May 1883 p 2

Robert and Elizabeth and their family of six left Liverpool on Tuesday 27 August 1833. The cost of the passage was £112.19.0 for the family and £3.19.0 for the luggage. On the passage to Rio de Janeiro they endured rough seas and broken masts, food was in short supply and of poor quality. After Rio things improved and they eventually reached Sydney after calling at Hobart. Robert was a carpenter and opened a shop at Brickfield Hill alongside Anthony Horderns but Elizabeth did not like city life. She insisted that Robert apply to the Governor for a grant. An offer of 32 acres at Woolloomooloo was declared by Elizabeth to be too close to Sydney so Robert bought 640 acres at Gerringong from William Smith at 5/- an acre. He named this `Renfrew Park' after his home county. He later owned other properties at Foxground and Cambewarra.

The very religious family held monthly Presbyterian Services at “Renfrew Park” and Robert was appointed trustee for establishment of a Presbyterian Church in Kiama.

She carried on working the farm after her husband accidentally killed himself while getting through a fence with a loaded gun.

Obituary. On Saturday Mrs. Jane Elizabeth Miller (widow of the late Robert Muir Miller) Shellharbour, passed away at the residence of her son, Unanderra, aged 63 years. She was in her usual health on leaving to pay a short visit   and a stroke was the cause of death. Many fine attributes belonged to the late Mrs. Miller. A splendid wife and mother, a true friend and one whose  Christian character, generous and charitable nature was a pattern to all who knew her, and she was a tower of   strength, with the members of her family, in the church work at Shell harbour. The internment took place at Shellharbour on Sunday leaving Unanderra shortly before noon. At the grave side the Rev. A. H. Gallop delivered a very sympathetic address. The funeral had a large district attendance and many beautiful wreaths were received. Sincere district sympathy is extended to the bereaved family.  The Kiama Reporter and Illawarra Journal (NSW : 1899 - 1947) Wednesday 18 August 1926 p 2

OBITUARY.–We have on the present occasion a melancholy event to record in the death of Mrs. W. Miller of Gerringong. Mrs. Miller who was the mother of seven sons and a daughter surviving her, had been suffering, from time to time, from a painful disorder, regarding the treatment of which she had special confidence in Dr. H. J. Tarrant, who had repeatedly succeeded in relieving her. On this account she had visited Sydney in order to be within reach of that skilful practitioner, but the time had come when care and skill were to be for her unavailing. Mrs. Miller continued during her stay in Sydney to grow weaker and weaker, and at length, on Friday last we believe, expired. Her remains were coffined without delay, and placed on board the steamer, which left Sydney on Friday evening, and arrived as usual at Kiama on Saturday morning. Having been conveyed during the day to Gerringong, the coffin was on Sunday committed to the earth in the Public Cemetery of that township, a concourse, which we understand to have amounted to nearly four hundred persons being present on the occasion. Mrs. Miller was a native of Scotland, and was a daughter of Mr. John Miller, engineer, and sister of Mr. W. Miller, late of Jamberoo, and was a member of the Presbyterian Church.

OBITUARY. - MISS ANNIE MILLER. With deep regret we mention the death of Miss Annie Miller, who passed away at “Braeside”, Gerringong, on Sunday last. With the other members of the well-known district family,   and a daughter of Mrs. Robert Miller and the late Robert Miller, Esq., of “Sandywha,' Gerringong, she was highly esteemed; but much personal regard and deep affection was hers from a   large circle of friends and admirers who recognised her fine spirit, beauty of soul, and the attributes of a truly Christian nature. In all things musical in the community, Miss Miller took a deep interest, for she was a finished musician, and the training of the choir for many years was to her a great delight, and the earnest attention to her instruction was given in deep appreciative affection, which was her reward with the proficiency attained. From early girlhood she took a keen interest in Church work and never spared her- self in the work she found to do in it, and from the membership of the Congregational Church she will be long and deeply mourned. In the home her loving helpfulness in sickness or trouble, her unselfishness and the sustaining grace and comfort of her presence will be sorely missed, and wide- spread sympathy is felt throughout the district for those who will so deeply feel her loss and knew best the beauty of her character. Until about a year ago, Miss Miller enjoyed splendid health, when she was struck by an insidious complaint, which cut off at life in its prime and precious in its usefulness to others. The end was expected, as health failed rapidly during the last few months, and the great change was faced with Christian fortitude and courage. The funeral took place on Tuesday and was very largely attended. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Wednesday 21 October 1914 p 2

On September 12, one of the oldest residents of Lithgow, in the per son of Mrs. Amelia Mills, relict of Mr. William Mills, died at the age of 80 years and two days. The deceased lady, with her husband, came to Lithgow Valley over twenty years ago, when the present township was little other than a trackless bush. By thrift and lucky speculations they acquired considerable property in the town. Mr. Mills predeceased his wife by about ten years. The deceased lady on September 10 attained her 80th birthday, which was celebrated by members of the family by a birthday dinner at her son-in law's hotel (the Imperial), when the heartiest congratulations were extended to the old lady. She had, however, been very feeble of late, though the end was not expected so suddenly. Australian Town and Country Journal (Sydney, NSW : 1870 - 1907) Saturday 23 September 1899 p 15

Mrs. Mills, an old resident of Lithgow, died during the week, just after the celebration of her 80th birthday. A dinner was given to celebrate the birthday, and was attended by some 38 of the family and the relatives of the deceased. The group was afterwards photographed, and a few hours later the old lady was put to bed. She slept all through that night and next day and night. She never spoke after retiring, and quietly slept her life away within 36 hours. Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative (NSW : 1890 - 1954) Friday 22 September 1899 p 8

Leg Broken.. . Mrs. W. P. Milne of “Eurania,” Jamboroo Road, met with a most unfortunate accident on Thursday afternoon as she was watering her bush house. A big hose coiled tip, tripped her and the fall brought about a serious fracture above the knee. After Mrs. Milne was brought by Ambulance, to Dr. Corner's to be X-rayed, her removal, to the Kama District Hospital was recommended. Her many friends are very sorry to hear of the occurrence, The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 27 April 1929 p 2

MRS. W. P. MILNE- 61 YEARS. It. was with widespread regret the sad news of Mrs. W. P. Milne's death became known on Wednesday morning for though she had been practically an invalid since she broke her leg some eight months ago, and passed through great suffering, the sad end was not expected, until the last few days of her illness. Previous to her marriage with Mr. William P. Milne, she was Miss Annie Atkinson, of “Fernleigh,” the eldest daughter of Mrs. Atkinson and the late Thomas Atkinson, and leaves besides her sorrowing husband three sons, Clarence, Kenneth and Charles, and one daughter, Grace, to deeply mourn the loss of a splendid wife and mother. The late Mrs. Milne had a beautiful nature, kindness itself, never so happy as when doing some thoughtful, generous thing for a friend or neighbour, and was beloved by all those who had the privilege of her friendship. She was greatly blessed in the devotion of her family, for in her months of ill less in the hospital, following her accident, their attention never wearied and their loving care surrounded and sustained her. After being taken home with a trained nurse still in attendance, it continued the same, and was a great comfort to her. A specialist was brought by Mr. Milne and family, from Sydney on Monday last, who pronounced the case hopeless, and the end at hand, which was a terrible shock to them. Deep sympathy is felt for her invalid mother, Mrs. Atkinson, to whom, advanced iln years, the sad news will come as a great shock. Misses Minnie and Lillian Atkinson and Mrs. R. W. Kendall, of Kiama, are also sisters, and to them sympathy is also extended with other members of the Atkinson family in Mrs. R. Angus, Sydney, Mrs. F. Johnston, Adelaide, Mrs. R. Christie, Drummoyne, Mr. George Atkinson, Works Department, Moss Vale Railway Construction, Mr. Thomas Atkinson, Katoomba. The funeral took place on Thursday, and had a large attendance.

OBITUARY. MRS. WM. MITCHELL. On Thursday last there passed away a greatly esteemed resident of Rose Valley, in Mrs. Wm. Mitchell, who for over 30 years was known and beloved by friends and neighbours there, and   all her life she has lived in this district. Previous to her marriage she was Miss Catherine Reynolds, third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Reynolds, who may worthily be included in the fine old pioneer folk of Illawarra. Her father, whose honesty and integrity was a household word, by all who knew him, and the loyalty of his friendship valued by those who had the privilege of it, passed away some years ago, but her aged mother still lives in Kiama, having passed her 94th year. Mrs. Mitchell was a daughter worthy of her parents, and born at Crawley Forest, the family homestead. Since the early fifties, and after her marriage with Mr. William Mitchell, she went to live in beautiful Rose Valley, where was spent the rest of her days, and where as devoted wife and mother, kindly and hospitable neighbour and friend, she nobly fulfilled the highest, duties of womanhood. She leaves to mourn her, beside her sorrowing husband, four sons in the Messrs. H. R. Mitchell (Bellinger River), D. E. Mitchell (Coff's Harbour), W. Y. Mitchell (“Yellay Esor,” Kiama), and H. L. Mitchell (Rose Valley), with one daughter, Mrs. Thos. Morrison, of “Holly Mount.” Mrs. H. Love and Miss Reynolds also mourn an affectionate sister. For a number of years Mrs. Mitchell has been far from strong, but the change that brought the severance of earthly ties was sudden and unexpected, peritonitis, being the immediate cause of death, and in her last illness she was devotedly nursed by her daughter, Mrs. Morrison, and neighbours, who came to assist in friendly feeling and affection, and whose kindness was much appreciated. The funeral, a large and representative one, was an evidence of the deep respect in which the family are held, and took place on Friday afternoon, the cortege leaving the homestead for the North Kiama Cemetery.

Florence Victoria Mitchell, formerly Waldron, sued for divorce from George Mitchell, a clerk, on the ground of desertion. Mr. Whitfeld, instructed by Mr. A. W. Weaver, appeared for the petitioner; and Mr. Hammond, instructed by Mr. Aitken, for the respondent, who denied the allegation. The parties were married in December, 1890, at Wollongong, according to the rites of the Congregational Church. They lived at Bulli, and afterwards at Sydney. Eventually, said the petitioner, she was told by the respondent that he could not keep her any longer, and she went to her father's place. After hearing the evidence of the respondent, his Honor said he was not satisfied that desertion had been made out, and dismissed the petition.

AN AFFLICTED FAMILY.— The ravages of typhoid have left many homes desolate, as perhaps too many of our readers can tell with sadness, and in one case at least, that of Mr. Alexander Mitchell, of March, two children have succumbed, and a third one is now suffering. Lizzie, aged 19, was buried on Easter Monday, and the mourners were again joined

in sad procession on Thursday last, James, aged 17, having died on the previous day. Herbert, 10 years, is now in the hospital from which, however, if kind and thoughtful attention can avail, he will soon be restored to his sorrowing relatives. The mother of the children is prostrate from the anxiety occasioned, and to mark their sympathy the people of March have decided to raise a sum of money by subscription for presentation to Mr. Mitchell, who is in reduced circumstances, not having recovered from the effects of a disastrous fire, by which he was a heavy loser, a short time ago. Mitchell is well known as a fencer, and it is satisfactory to note that those for whom he has worked are to the fore with donations,Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal (NSW : 1851 - 1904) Thursday 9 May 1889 Page 3

Mr. Alexander Mitchell, farmer, near March, was married and had eight children, seven sons and one daughter. On Tuesday most of the members of the family were at home when the heavy thunderstorm came on. At about 7 p.m. Mr. Mitchell, his wife, and one son were in one room and two other boys, the elder named Harold, aged 12, were in another room. A flash of lightning struck the corner post of the cottage, smashing it to splinters and passing through the room in which the boys were, filling the place with smoke. Mrs. Mitchell ran to the boys' room and with the aid of her son Herbert got the boys outside. It was at first thought they were dead. Mrs. Mitchell called to her husband that the children were killed and going into the house to see why he did not answer found that the unfortunate man had been struck by lightning and killed. The two boys received considarable injuries and a severe shock. One is, however, now recovered, while the other is getting over it. The burial of Mr. Mitchell's remains took place on Thursday.

Mrs. Margaret Mitchell (91), died at her residence, Arcadia on Friday. Her husband pre-deceased her. Of a family of 15 children, 7 sons and one daughter are living. Deceased was born at Wollongong. The interment took place in the Methodist Cemetery, Dural on Saturday morning, the Rev. Mr. Rolph officiating.

On Wednesday afternoon last, the sad news was received of the passing of a very old and esteemed couple in the persons of Mr. William Wallace Young Mitchell, and his wife, Mrs. Mary Mitchell, of Barney Street, Kiama, their deaths occurring practically within the hour.

Mr Mitchell had taken a bad turn about a week previously, and his wife, with the devotion she has displayed for so long, insisted on caring for him until she too became ill and shortly after midday on Wednesday she passed away, her husband's death occurring just about an hour later.

The late Mr. Mitchell had celebrated his 90th birthday a little more than three weeks ago, and his wife was in her 86th year. Practically the whole of their long lives had been spent in this district. Mr. Mitchell was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Mitchell, and although born in Sydney, came with his parents to Rose Valley when only 12 months old, and he lived there until the year 1916, when he retired and came to reside in Kiama.

While in the Gerringong district, he had taken a very keen and helpful interest in municipal affairs and was for many years an Alderman of the Gerringong Council. He was a great lover of horses, his knowledge of which made his services much sought after as a judge at the various Shows.. In his young days he did much of the breaking-in of horses in the district, and so good a rider was he that it was said of him that no horse could ever throw him.

Mr. Mitchell always enjoyed remarkably good health and in this respect he created what is considered to be something of a record. For sixty years he was a member of the Manchester Unity Order of Oddfellows, and during that long period he was never obliged to draw any sick benefit.

Mrs. Mitchell was also a member of a very old district family, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Reynolds, of. Crawley Forest. The old couple had a great fund of reminiscences of the early days of the district, and, the hard and exacting life of the farming pioneers, for they had been members of that community since childhood, brought up to love and understand life on the land.

Although he retained all his faculties until the last, Mr. Mitchell had not been out and about much during the last few years, but his wife, with her sister, Mrs. Fanny Love, was often to be met with, her very bright personality and charm making it hard to believe that she too had passed the fourscore years.

The sisters were very devoted, and special sympathy goes out to Mrs. Love in her bereavement.

The late Mr. Mitchell was twice married, his first wife being Miss Katherine Reynolds, also a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Reynolds. He is survived by four sons and a daughter of the first marriage, Harmon (Queensland), Wallace (Gerringong), Donald (Sydney) and Leslie Hugh, (Holly Mount, Kiama), and Mrs. T. W. Morrison, (Holly Mount, Kiama) also a 'brother, Mr. Robert B. Mitchell (Sydney) and sister, Mrs, S, Vance (Manly) to all of whom sympathy is extended in their sad double bereavement.

Mrs. Love is the only surviving member of the Reynolds family.

The funeral took place yesterday (Friday) afternoon at the Kiama, Cemetery. The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Saturday 1 August 1942 p 4

Since August of last year Miss Edith Gertrude Rose Mitchell, who resided with her sister, Mrs. Otto Dietze, at 'Seaview,' Mitchell Estate, Woonona, had been confined to the home, and a month ago her illness became so serious she was transferred to a private hospital in Sydney, but all without avail and she returned home to Woonona about a fortnight ago, to eventually pass quietly and peacefully away at about 9 o'clock last Saturday night.

The funeral left Seaview at 11.15 a.m. on Monday, for Bulli cemetery, where the body was placed to rest in the Methodist section in a grave adjoining that of her late parents, late John and late Sarah Mitchell, Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Friday 27 March 1936 p 6

To Mr Trench,: Accused was surprised when he read the warrant to him, and said 'It has come to something ' ; he was very quiet ; had been to defendant's house about twelve months ago, and had seen him in Nowra; but never detected any sign of in sanity ; it had never been suggested to him by anyone that defendant was insane. Elizabeth Moffitt deposed she was the wife of William Moffitt then before the court; she remembered coming to Nowra on the 27th November last and making a statement .to Sergeant Crawley regarding her husband ; she informed him that she believed her husband was mad, and she was afraid to live in the place with him ; on the following day Constable Solomon went to their place, and had a conversation with her husband, remaining about an hour ; about three weeks ago she again spoke to Sergeant Crawley, and made a similar complaint about her husband, Sergeant Crawley went to her place, and remained about three-quarters of an hour talking to her husband ; about a week ago her husband chased her round the yard with a hoe, and threatened to kill her with an axe ; he took a bucket of milk, threw the milk out, kicked the bucket, and threw it over a fence ; he said he would murder her now her mother was dead and she had no one to take her part ; that occurred on the 26th December ; he went to the drawers, took her clothes, and threw them outside on the grass ; he kicked her hat in the yard after he had taken it off her head ; he also threw the dishes from the kitchen outside ; he knocked a horn off a heifer with a stick ; it was because of his actions that she considered him insane ; she considered her life was in danger, and was afraid he would carry-out his threat and murder her; she did not consider he was under proper care and control at his house ; there was no one there who could manage him ; she had to go to James Smith's place for protection.

To Mr Trench : This conduct had been going on for five or six weeks, but was worse the last week ; she considered he had been mad for five or six weeks; about six years ago she had her husband up similarly, and he was discharged : twenty years ago she was in a receiving house for a fortnight; she did not break any windows then; she forgot about twenty years ago; she did not remember pulling palings off a fence; her husband went and took her out of the receiving house ; about a week ago he knocked her down with his fist; she could not say whether that was before or after she saw Sergeant Crawley; he hit her on the side of the head with his fist ; there was a mark, but it had gone off ; his temper made him hit her ; nearly every day he threatened to kill her ; she did not remember her husband remonstrating with her for having Mrs Clarke in her house, as she had kept a disorderly house heard Mrs Clarke had kept one; did not remember her sons wanting to clear Mrs Clarke out; she was never in Mrs Clarke's house before she got into trouble ; she had called at Mrs Clarke's door ; she generally wore a new hat when milking the cows; she bought it out of her own money, also her clothes; her husband had not bought clothes for twelve months or so; her boy was not present when her husband struck her; her husband was a dairy farmer, and she believed, was doing well ; she did not remember the date he hit Hkf with a hoe ; it was not a month ago ; she did not remember the date he hit her with the hoe ;; it was not a month ago; her son did not see him hit her with the hoe; her mother lived in Nowra, and used to protect her; she had not stopped out of the house at night after he threatened her with an. axe; she did not remember if she stopped away; she stopped away at night about three weeks ago ; she stopped at Mrs Smith's to be away from her husband; she bought her clothes from money left her by her mother; she did work about the house and milk; her husband did not wash his own clothes; she did not know that she swore her life was unsafe the previous time she had her husband up ; she did not occupy the same room as her husband , she bolted the door and kept a box against it to keep him out ; there was a peg in the door and a hole in the post ; she pegged the door all last week and every night until three nights ago.

To the Bench: She had been married 30 years; she had a quiet temper; for the last 5 or 6 weeks her husband had been very bad tempered ; she had not provoked her husband ; he dined with her and the family ; they had not been living happily during most of their married life, her husband made £25 per month : she was in the kitchen when her husband hit her; she did not call him bad names; he called her bad names.

Sarah Clarke deposed she was a married woman, and knew Mr and Mrs Moffitt; she sometimes stayed at their place, and had stayed there, six or seven months at a time ; she was there about six months ago ; she had heard Moffitt and his wife rowing ; they did not assasit each other ; she saw Moffitt pull his wife off the steps and kneel on her ; she teld Moffitt to let his wife go ; they were always quarrelling ; Mrs Moffitt had a good temper.

To Mr Trench : She was at Moffitt's six months at a time; Moffitt did not object to her ; she served six months at one time for keeping a disorderly house, though she was innocent of the charge ; the Moffitt boys did not object to her staying ; she heard Mrs Moffitt tell her husband once to go to h— : never heard her call him bad names ; Mrs Moffitt kept the house well, and knew what she was doing; Moffitt never tried to hire her out ; Moffitt knelt on his wife's chest till her tongue came out ; sometimes the boys were about the place; it was about four years since Moffitt assaulted his wife as she had described.

Thomas Matthews deposed he was a duly qualified medical practitioner, and medical officer for the Shoalhaven district; he was asked that morning by Constable Gill to examine William Moffitt, who was charged with being insane ; he did so, and had a conversation with him, but could find no trace of insanity about him ; he was perfectly coherent in all his statements, and was in no way nervous or excited, and his whole conduct was that of a man in his senses.

To the Bench : To all appearances he was perfectly sane ; he did not consider defendant should be taken in charge to be taken care of and treated as an insane person ; he was quite capable of transacting any business ho may have ; he did not know Moffitt personally, but, so far as he could judge, there was no trace of insanity about him.

Richard Bindon Stoney, a duly qualified - medical practitioner, residing at Nowra, deposed to having examined William Moffitt and-found him perfectly consecutive in all his statements : his manner was quiet, and gave the impression that what he spoke about were facts ; he could find no sign of hallucination of delusion, and he did not consider him to be insane ; he did not consider it necessary to put him under restraint or to detain him for treatment for insanity ; he did not consider him dangerous if allowed to remain at large.

Thomas Moffitt a son of defendant's, deposed that he resided with his parents at Burrier, and had done so for the last nine months ; his father's conduct for the last month had been very good ; his mother only milked now and again, but his father milked every day, morning and evening ; he had heard them quarrel when his mother was in the yard ; the last time they quarrelled, his mother was in fault, and started the row ; his father never at that time, or any other time, struck her with a hoe, or attempted to strike her ; be had no recollection of his mother telling him that his father had struck her with a hoe ; he never saw his father take the milk and throw it out of the dish over the fence ; he never heard his father threaten his mother ; he was not aware of his mother being compelled to leave the house and go to Smith's for protection ; if she went there it was of her own accord, and simply for business ; his mother never complained to him ; he had not noticed anything peculiar about his father of late ; be went about his business just the same as usual; he was in no way afraid of his father, and had no fear of him doing him an injury..

To the Bench : His father was not a bad tempered man, nor was his mother; they quarrelled pretty often ; his mother never complained to him about his father, nor was she afraid of him.

To Mr Trench: His mother did not lock her room against her father ; the door had no lock to it; last Tuesday night the door was not closed ; his clothes were then hanging over it ; he did not see his father kicking the crown out of his mother's hat about a fortnight ago, nor throw her clothes out on the grass ; he heard his mother tell her father to go to h—, and call him a bald-headed old b- , and a rotten old b—; she often picked up a stone to his father, and last Thursday she picked up a stone and threatened to do for him ; his father was ordinarily a quiet, peaceable man, and was quite able to do his business; it was only when they had rows that there was trouble.

Defendant was discharged, the P.M. remarking that on the medical testimony he could not do anything else but discharge him. He suggested that the parties should come to some arrangement to live apart. The Shoalhaven Telegraph (NSW : 1879 - 1937) Wednesday 9 January 1901 p 2

Testator's Family Maintenance Act

A case of local interest engaged the attention of the Equity Court, in Sydney, on the 14th instant. Mrs. Elizabeth Moffitt, widow of the late Mr. William Moffitt, of Burrier, sought relief under the- Testators' Family Maintenance Act. By his will the deceased excluded his widow from any benefit in his estate, bequeathing two small legacies to his daughters, and the rest to his son, Ernest Henry Moffitt. The value of the estate was approximately £400. The son, who was also executor, opposed the widow's application, and sought to show she was rightly excluded from the will and possessed, means of her own. His Honor Justice Harvey ??? argument, upheld the claim of the widow and awarded her £100, ordering the executor to pay costs.

Sudden Death. –With very deep regret we record the demise of Mrs. Thomas Moffitt, who died very suddenly on Tuesday afternoon last, aged 59 years. The deceased lady became suddenly ill on Monday last from heat apoplexy, Dr. Terrey being called to her assistance immediately; but in spite of skilful and untiring attention on his part, the sufferer never rallied, passing away as stated above, Mr, T. Moffitt is a very old resident of the Gerringong district, carrying on the occupation of farming. The family are very widely connected in the district besides being well and favourably known to almost everyone in this district and numerous friends elsewhere. The deceased lady's remains will be interred in the Gerringong cemetery this afternoon, the funeral to move from her late residence at Crooked River at 1.30 p.m. We join most heartily in sympathy with the bereaved family and their friends, whose loss is all the more severe on account of the suddenness attending Mrs, Moffitt's death.

When her son was killed in France she repeatedly. wrote trying to get something returned to her of his- as he was buried she eventually received his dogtags, but nothing else. She also requested as soon as she heard about them his memorial plaque and photographs of his grave.


The funeral of the late Mrs. Jane Montegomery of Rawson-street, Kurri Kurri, who passed away on Tuesday, 14th February, at the great age of 83 years, left her late residence for the interment which was made in the Baptist portion of Kurri kurri Cemetery on Wednesday.

A fine service was conducted at the home by the Rev. W. R. Skee, who spoke of the fine influence which the life of the late Mrs. Montgomery had had in the community due to the high christion ideals which were hers. Mr. Skee also officiated at the graveside and appropriate hymns, 'Safe In the Arms of Jesus' and '“In the Sweet Bye and Bye' were sung.

The late Mrs. Montgomery, despite her great age, retained her faculties to the last, and also remained very active. She was of a quiet and retiring disposition, though a woman of many deep and sincere frienlships, and devoted all her life to the Baptist Church which she attended for 32 years and was the oldest member. She was also a life Deaconess of the church.

Accompanied by her late husband and their family, the late Mrs. Montgomery came to Australia from the North of Ireland fifty-one years ago. The family resided twelve years in Charters Towers, Queensland before moving to Woonona, N.S.W., in 1900, and then came to Kurri Kurri in rather tragic circumstances in 1907.

The family had arranged to follow the late Mr. Montgomery to Kurri Kurri where he had secured employment in Stanford Merthyr Colliery, and only a few days before they were to arrive he was fatally injured in an accident in the mine. Since coming to Kurri Kurri, the late Mrs. Montgomery and her family have won the respect and esteem or the entire community. She is survived by three daughters, Mrs. E.. Waugh (Woonona), Mrs. A. Oakes (Kurri Kurri) and Mrs. J. Knott (Aberdare). Her two sons are also deceased. The pall-bearers were her four grandsons, Robert and Sam Waugh, W. Montgomery and J. Knott.

An accident of a rather singular character is reported by the Kiama Independent as having occurred to the wife of Mr. Josephus Moon, of Gerrigong, by which she had the misfortune to lose a portion of the first finger of her right hand. She was riding on horseback, on a man's saddle, in the offside of which a staple was fastened with a ring attached. Through this ring she put three of the fingers of her right hand for the purpose of securing her equilibrium upon the saddle. In passing Mr. Perkins's store, where the animal, a very quiet one, was in tbe habit of frequently turning off the road, and while in the act of doing so at this time his feet slipped and he fell, the rider falling on the nearside with such force as to cause the complete severance of the fore finger, and also a severe bruising of the second and third fingers, which were also through the ring at the same time. The severance was so complete that not a vestige of skin remained connecting the detached part with the rest of the finger. The haemorrhage was speedily arrested by means of ligatures, and the sufferer is doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances. Empire 17 April 1869

Woman Accidentally Killed

The City Coroner (Mr., D: Grant, P.M.) held an inquiry yesterday . into the death of Sarah Martha Moon. 58 years, widow, of Barkly-strcct, North Fitzroy, who was killed on the night of Sunday, when a large motor bus in which she was one of about thirty passengers, overturned at the spot, known as the Devil's Elbow, between Sassafras and Fern Tree Gully.

Evidence was given that as the motor bus was making the long descent, the driver, Frederick Albert E. Lee, threw out the clutch but was unable, for some unknown reason, to engage the second gear.

He made several strenuous efforts to engage the second gear but failed to do so.

In the way down the bus struck an object and went on to overturn.

The coroner, found that death was due to misadventure. The Age (Melbourne, Vic. : 1854 - 1954) Tuesday 19 December 1933 Page 11

Mitchell, ex-M.L.A., of Milton House, Bellambi, took place recently at the Methodist Church, Bellambi, the building being prettily decorated for the occasion. The Rev. T. B. Holmes, of Wollongong, officiated at the ceremony.

The bride, who was attended by the Misses M. and D. Mitchell and Miss D. .Adelt as bridesmaids, looked extremely pretty, and was given away by her brother, Mr. George Mitchell. Mr. Brown, of Sydney, acted as best man. After the ceremony refreshments were served at Milton House, which was decorated with flags, bunting, and flowers. Mr. and Mrs. Horace Moore-Jones left by the evening train for Kiama. The guests included Mr. and Mrs. O. H. Jaques, Mrs. Spring, Dr. and Mrs. O'Connor (Woonona), Mr. and Mrs. J.

A Violent Husband.

At the Central Police Court to-day, before Captain Fisher, S.M., Alexander Mora, 44, laborer, was charged by warrant with having violently and maliciously threatened Maria Mora. It appeared that accused reached his home in a drunken state last night and threatened to cut her throat. Accused was bound over to keep the peace for six months and to find sureties for the same, in default to go to gaol for two months. Evening News (Sydney, NSW : 1869 - 1931) Wednesday 5 September 1894 p 6


Information was received by the police last night that Mr. Alexander Mora was beating Mrs. Mora to death at their residence, Harris-street, Ultimo, and Constable Jordan, of No. 1 Station, went down to see about it, so to speak. Mr. Mora is an Italian person, of the laboring persuasion, and when not engaged in stamping on the face of the lady he has sworn to cherish he used to amuse himself with a little lumping and other light exercise on wharves and places. However, on the present occasion he was too busily engaged in an industrious effort to boost the senses out of Mrs. M. to notice at first the approach of the constable, but when he did observe the presence of Jordan he hit him hard and twice on the nose, producing to the vision of the gentleman in blue three new and expensive kinds of catherine-wheels and some golden, rain of an improved pattern. He further more launched a pair of dainty elevens with a 1in. sole .at the officer, bruising him badly, and when Robert M'Kirdy arrived with the idea of helping the policeman tho Roman tough landed him promptly on the left eye, which made Mac wink the other one and go astern. Before, however, he could got out of range of the ruffian the latter caught hint by the body with his hand, causing him intense agony.

Now in consideration of this eccentric conduct Mr. Johnson, S.M., at the Central to-day, sentenced Mr. Mora to three months on each charge of assault (cumulative), and fined him 40s., with the option of a fortnight, for an observation he made under the influence of excitement and fluids.

The family lived in the Cordeaux area.


An inquest was held on Thursday before the district coroner (Mr. B. Lipscomb) and a jury of seven, at the residence of Martin Moran, Cordeaux River, touching the death of Alice Moran, wife of William Moran. Dr. Lee gave evidence that he had viewed the body, and was of opinion that death was caused from suffocation, and that Mrs. Moran must have been insensible when she fell into the water. John Hayes deposed that between 7 and 8 o'clock on Wednesday morning he went with William Moran to look for the latter's wife ; in the creek near the road he found the body of the deceased lying in the water ; she was dead at the time ; the water was about seven inches deep ; there was a slight bruise on the forehead ; there was no appearance of any struggle having taken place ; she was lying face downwards with her arms underneath ; the back of her head was exposed and out of the water. William Moran deposed that the deceased was his wife ; she got up from her bed the previous morning about 5 o'clock ; lit the fire and made some tea for her son and got him his breakfast ; about six o'clock was the last time he saw her alive ; he got up between 6 and 7, and found his wife was missing from the house ; he sent a message to his next-door neighbor Thomas Hayes to come and help him look for his wife, and he sent his son John Hayes ; had no quarrel of any kind with his wife, and had no reason for believing that she   intended destroying herself ; she had been suffering from asthma lately, and for some years past had been complaining of pains in her head ; heard some persons near the creek calling out and went over to them, and saw his wife lying in the creek ; she was then dead, and he helped to lift her out ; the creek was about 4ft wide, and about seven inches deep ; there was no trace of any struggle ; his wife had a touch of sunstroke about three years ago ; his servant boy had called Mrs. Moran before he got out of bed, and when he found she did not answer he got up and sent to the neighbors to tell them she was missing ; she complained the evening before of being annoyed by the servant boy, Cecil Egan, and it caused her great pain. Cecil Egan deposed to seeing Mrs. Moran early the previous morning ; saw her leave the house and go towards the dam, in the direction of the creek ; that was the last time he saw her alive ; Mr. Moran asked him to look for his wife ; he did so, but could not find her : he then sent him to Mr. Hayes to see if she was there, and, said if she was not there he expected she had gone to drown herself ; he told this to Mr. Hayes, and afterwards went to Mr. Prior's to tell them of Mrs.   Moran's absence ; he told Prior that she had gone away to drown herself ; afterwards saw the body taken from the creek   to the house ; when he saw Mrs. Moran going to the dairy she told him to go on milking ; the afternoon before she struck him, and he went out to the garden and she followed him ; he heard her tell her husband that witness had tormented her, and that she would do away with herself ; that was about 3 o'clock in the afternoon ; witness had frequently tormented her during the last three months : she often told him that he would be sorry for tormenting her ; had heard her complain of having a bad head ; she had asked him to be a better boy and not annoy her so much. John Moran (son of deceased) and Alfred Prior also gave evidence. The jury returned the following verdict : — “We find that the said Alice Moran, on   the morning of the 24th instant, died from suffocation, being insensible at the time she fell into the water.” The prevailing opinion amongst those best qualified to judge is that the unfortunate woman did not commit suicide, as was erroneously reported in town on Wednesday,   but that she took a fit when near   the creek, falling in face downwards. This supposition is supported by the evidence of Dr. Lee. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Saturday 27 February 1892 p 2

MORAN.—In loving memory of THOMAS MORAN , who died on the 26th Dec., 1889 ; aged 26 years.

Fare thee well, my husband dear ;
We little thought your time so near ;
We tried to save you, but all in vain;
God took you from your weary pain.
Gone a sunbeam from the household
To the land of love and rest,
Where the storms that round us gather,
Can no more disturb my breast.
Calm thy brow my gentle husband :
Over which we bend and weep :
Darling, can we fear to follow thee
In such a gentle sleep.
What is left of thee, dear husband,
For my love and tender care ;
Only a mound of earth, dear husband,
And a lock of silken hair.
'Tis hard to part, but husband dear,
We know you are at rest ;
No pain to hear, no sorrow there,
But happy with the blest.
Above thy lowly grave I kneel,
With heart all crushed and sore ;
So will, through the gloom these sweet words steal,

“Not lost, but gone before.”

Inserted by his loving wife, Bridget Moran. Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 29 December 1891 p 2

A Friend writes: As briefly reported in a recent issue, the passing   of the late Mrs. Catherine Mary Moran, beloved wife of Mr. John Moran, of Dapto, removes a highly respected member of the Illawarra District. A daughter of the late Michael and Margaret O'Neill, she was born at Calderwood, where she spent her early years. After her marriage she resided for some time at Cordeaux, where she endeared herself to the early pioneers of that district.

Removing to Dapto, the couple secured the farming property known as 'Fairfield', where she resided till her death. The late Mrs. Moran was a lady of remarkable activity, and retained her faculties to the end. Though of reserved disposition, her charity knew no bounds, and many a homeless one received comfort and hospitality from her hands. During her last illness she was lovingly cared for by her daughters, in whose presence she passed peacefully away.    South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 10 April 1942 p 2

Death of Mrs. Morley

Death has claimed still another estimable lady citizen of Wollongong. Mrs. Elizabeth Ann Morley, of Atchison-street, joyously participated in the marriage of her younger daughter, Thelma, on Saturday afternoon, died at 9 o'clock on Sunday morning. It was a tragic occurrence -one that stirred the community to express profound regret and sympathy for the bereaved ones. The late Mrs. Morley was within two months of reaching the age of 60 years. She had resided in Wollongong 24 years, during which period her husband, Mr. William Morley, has been employed by the Public Works Department. She was born at Jamberoo, and as Miss Elizabeth Graham she married Mr. Morley, at Kiama, 36 years ago. The issue of the union was a family of six - three daughters and three sons. Two sons died early in life and Robert is now the only surviving son. The daughters are Lilian (Mrs. Smith, Casino), Elizabeth (Mrs. Waples, Dapto) and Thelma (Mrs. Townsend, Wollongong, who was married on Saturday last.) Deceased had not enjoyed robust health for some months. Occasionally she took bad turns, but her sudden end was totally unexpected. As a neighbor and friend she was one of the very best, while as an industrious woman her equal would be hard to find. The remains were interred in the C. of E. cemetery, Brownsville, on Monday, alongside those of her two sons. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 11 November 1932 p 21

Death came as quite a release to Mrs. Jane Morgan on Monday night, and she passed away peacefully at her residence in Beattie Avenue, Old Bulli, at about 11-.30 o'clock. All of her family were around the bedside, but the one sad feature was that the husband, Mr. Joseph Morgan, was necessarily absent, because of being a patient in Bulli Hospital. The funeral left the- residence at 31 p.m. on Wednesday, the hearse being covered with beautiful floral tributes,; and the large cortege included representatives of all walks of life. The body was first taken into the Methodist Church at Bulli, where a. service was conducted by Rev. P. M. Waterhouse, and then on to Bulli cemetery for interment in the Methodist section,

The late Mrs. Morgan had been a sufferer for several years. About six months ago she had a brief term as a patient in Prince Alfred Hospital (Sydney), and on returning to her home she was nursed continuously by members of her family right up to death; and it can be Written of her that she was indeed a' patient and' noble sufferer, never complaining oven when feeling exceptionally ill; She was advanced in age, being within a few months of 71 years of age. Born in Snedshill (England), she came to Australia with, her husband and two eldest children about 42 years ago. Settling first at Bulli, for a few years, they then travelled across to West Australia-, later returning and taking up residence at Port Kembla, but finally settling down again at Bulli; where they have remained for the past 20 years. - In addition to the husband, there is a family of seven — Elizabeth (Mrs. Fawcett, Wollongong), William (Belmore), Ernest (Bulli), Frederick (Bulli), Bertha (Mrs. W. Downie (Bulli), Ethel (Mrs. H. Hill, Woonona), Nellie (Mrs. L .Strachan, Woonona). Deceased was a constant worshipper in her church, but her life was devoted to the care and welfare of her family, the members of which are a credit to her, and intimate friends know what a sad separation this death has caused, the sympathy of all going out to the widower ,and family in their time of extreme sadness.

A Case of Abduction

George Morgan, a miner, was fully committed for trial at Plattsburg on Wednesday for the abduction of MarthaAnn Squires, under 14 years of age. The prisoner lodged in the house of the girl's father, and went away with the girl in May last to Ipswich, Queensland, where they lived as man and wife. A short time ago a woman, claiming to be Morgan's wife, arrived from England. The police were put on Morgan's track, and he was arrested by Constable Buller, and was brought back and charged with abduction. His alleged wife has not legally put forward her claim yet, else Morgan would be prosecuted for bigamy. Goulburn Evening Penny Post (NSW : 1881 - 1940) Thursday 28 July 1887 Page 2


George Morgan was charged, on committal from the Wallsend Bench, with marrying a minor Mary Ann Squires, on February 20th, 1886, who was under the age of 21 years, without the consent of her parents.

The Crown Prosecutor stated his intention of withdrawing the charges of abduction and forgery which arose out of the case. Accused pleaded guilty, and stated that at the time of the marriage he did not know he was doing wrong. They went away because they thought the parents would not be pleased.

Mr. J. A. Gorrick said that in the police court the accused's wife had expressed her great affection for him, and had not wished to proceed with the case.

Sergeant Grennan said he had known nothing of accused until the initiation of the case, but had heard a complaint from a woman, who represented herself to be his wife, two years since. Josiah Squires said he had seen another woman, who said she was accused's wife, having been married in England.

Accused admitted to witness his marriage with the first Woman, who had now gone back to England with her two children.

Accused was remanded for sentence until next morning. Newcastle Morning Herald and Miners' Advocate (NSW : 1876 - 1954) Friday 2 September 1887 Page 5

Husband a labourer. He had previously served in the English Army in India, Crimea and New Zealand according to her daughter Mary’s obituary.


Mrs. Mary Morgan, nee Murphy, a resdient of this town for nearly half a century; passed peacefully away on Friday last at the ripe old age of 81 years, and on the following day her remains were laid to rest beside those of her husband who died in 1901.

Mrs. Morgan was born near Thurles, County of Tipperary, Ireland, in 1835, and in the sixties of last century emigrated to Queensland where she remained for a short time. From there she was attracted by the fame of “Fair Illawarra,”and in it she finds her final resting place– “God's Acre,” North Kiama.

Left a widow with a young family to support, nearly 16 years ago, the deceased bravely faced the situation and by dint of well directed energy, honestly applied, provided for those dependent upon her. The testimony of the late Mrs. Morgan's immediate neighbours is that by her death they have lost one in whose kindly acts of sympathy and benevolence they could always rely.

Mrs Mary Moriarty, who died, at her residence, at Ariah Park, aged 53 years, on the 14th inst. after a. long illness, was the wife of Jeremiah Moriarty, storekeeper of that town.

Deceased and her husband went to Wyalong in the early days of the gold rush, and they lived in that town for eleven years, her husband being elected first Mayor of that town. Seven years ago they settled in Ariah Park and established a business there. Her great popularity was borne out by the fact that hers was by far the longest funeral ever seen in these parts, there being 112 vehicles exclusive of motor cars, horsemen and footmen who followed deceased to the grave, where the last rites were carried out by Rev. Father Mullins. Three sons predeceased her. All sections of the community vied with each other in paying their last respects, telegrams and floral tributes pouring in to her sorrowing husband and family.

After ailing for an extended period Mrs. Morris became very ill about one month, ago; and at about 6 p.m. last Tuesday she breathed her last, after being confined to her bed for a couple of days. The end came quietly and peacefully, with her husband and members of her family at me bedside.

The funeral cortege, which left the residence at Main Road, Bulli, yesterday, afternoon, at 4 p.m. was largely attended, and there were many beautiful floral tributes. The body was placed to rest in the Catholic section of Bulli cemetery, Rev. Father O'Farrell officiating at the graveside.

The late Ada Victoria Morris, who was 53 years of age, was a native of Victoria, and came to this State when a girl.. About 35 years ago she came to Wollongong, and it was in that town she met and married Mr. Albert Edward Morris about three years later. At first the young couple settled in Corrimal, remaining there about ten years, and then moving, to Bulli, where they have been residing ever since, Mr. Morris being a well-known employee of Woonona Co-operative Society. Mrs. Morris gave her life unselfishly for her home and family, where all work to her was a pleasure, even to flower gardening, of which she made quite a hobby. Of quiet manner, yet she made many friends, all of whom held her in high esteem.

In addition to the sorrowing husband, there is also a family of three sons and daughters to mourn the loss of a splendid mother — Albert (Bro. Morris, Christian Brothers College, Brisbane), Joseph, Peter, Florence, May, Ada. Two daughters died when very young. The sympathy of all who knew, them will go out to Mr. Morris and his respected family in their extremely sad bereavement.

At the age of 75 years there passed away, at her late residence, Main-road, Bulli, Catherine Morris, wife of the late Thomas Morris, on the 15th inst. The remains were interred alongside those of her late husband in Bulli General Cemetery. Born, in the County Durham, England, and coming to Australia some fifty years ago, she resided at Bulli till the day of her death. A more faithful wife and loving and kind mother it would be hard to find. She leaves a grown-up family of three sons and two daughters to mourn their loss. She passed away fortified by all the rites of Holy Church. Rev. Father Power read the last prayers at the grave. Freeman's Journal (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1932) Thursday 29 September 1927 p 47

Stanwell Railway Accident.


WOLLONGONG, Monday Afternoon. The inquest concerning the death of Emily Morris, who was killed in the railway accident at Stanwell Park, was resumed this morning. Mr. Booth, of the Railway Traffic Department, and Mr. Close, Locomotive Department, represented the Railway Commissioners. Mr. H. Cox, solicitor, represented the friends of deceased.

Dr. Sheeny deposed that he had examined the body in Wollongong on. Saturday evening. He judged that she had then been dead six hours. The injuries to the head were, sufficient to cause instantaneous death. It was possible that deceased had been thrown forward. William Smith, permanent way inspector, said that he traversed the line almost daily. The line was in good order on Saturday prior to the accident. Witness described the marks of broken fish bolts, indicating that the wheels of the car ran off the line. The car was termed a first-class American. The train was a special one. Witness did not understand the construction of cars. There had been no accident there within witness knowledge previously. He could not account for the accident. Thomas Hardy, ganger, deposed that the line was in good order. He could not explain how the engine driver did not see the car after it left the rails. He could not account for the accident, ~ and knew nothing about the construction of cars. Mr. Close, on behalf of the Commissioners, expressed sympathy with the friends of deceased and with those injured. Edward Thompson, locomotive inspector, said that he made an examination of the line and the bogey car derailed. He found one front wheel shifted on the axle about one and seven eighths inch. Probably the wheel got loose before coming to the joint of derailment. In the curve of the line the pressure forced it inwards and caused it to drop off the rails. The train wheels were examined every trip with great care. The jury desired to inspect the car and the place of the accident. The inquest was adjourned till next Monday, and the jury went by the afternoon's train to Stanwell Park. Evening News (Sydney, NSW : 1869 - 1931) Monday 27 January 1908 p 3

Railway Accident. - Through the overturning of a railway carriage at Stanwell Park, South Coast line, on Saturday afternoon last, Mrs. Emily Morris, a resident of Wollongong, was killed, and several persons injured-one of them seriously. It appears that the 1.40 p.m. passenger train from Nowra to Sydney, being late, the special train, timed to leave Wollongong at 3.45 p m. , took up the running, taking passengers from Wollongong, Stanwell Park being the first advertised stopping place. All went well until nearing this station, when from some cause then unknown the second carriage from the engine left the rails and turned over on its side, throwing Mrs. Morris out and pinioning her beneath the wreckage, and hurling, the remaining passengers against, each other…. Mrs. Morris was dead when the rescue party extricated her, and it is believed that she was killed instantly. What caused the carriage to overturn cannot be ascertained, for although it wass at a curve, both rails and the permanent way, on examination, were found to be in perfect order; The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser (NSW : 1863 - 1947) Wednesday 29 January 1908 p 2

Her husband was the engine smith at Mt Kembla colliery


An inquest was held to-day by Mr. J. Hart, deputy coroner, concerning the death of Hugh Morrison, engine-smith, 59, who had been employed by the Mount Kembla Company, and resided at Central Kembla. Deceased's wife left home at about 5 p.m. yesterday, and proceeded to Unanderra, about half a mile distant, leaving her husband alone at home. She returned in about half an hour with one of her sons, and went to a bedroom, and found the door closed with a chair against it. She pushed the door open, and smelt powder. She saw her husband lying on the bed. There was a gash across his throat. A blood-stained razor and a revolver containing four cartridges and one shell were on the bed. For some time deceased had been despondent and queer in his manner, and had an idea that people wanted to get him into a madhouse. Annie Wallace, a neighbour, heard a shot fired about 5 p.m. Upwards of £50 was found in deceased's pockets. Dr. T. W. Lee deposed that the incised wound in the throat was evidently self-inflicted, and would cause death in a few minutes. He had attended deceased for dyspepsia and melancholia. A verdict that death was caused by the wound in the throat, self-inflicted whilst temporarily insane, was returned. The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Friday 13 July 1906 p 11

There is a family in Qld who maybe the correct family, however the last child was born in 1880 which would have Esther having children for 22 years. Also there are ‘holes’ with child birth so more children may have to be found. This Esther Dunn died in 1926 aged 85 so it is possible that this is the correct Esther, more research would have to be done.

‘One by one the old pioneers are leaving us, one by one they are being laid to rest.' Such a thought was doubtless in the minds of many of our residents when the sad fact was made known on Friday that Mrs. Sarah Morrison had passed away at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. J J Moffitt of Barrengarry. The deceased lady had reached the ripe age of 82 years, and was a native of County Fermanagh, Ireland. She was married in Parramatta to the late Mr. Alex. Morrison, and went to reside at Kiama, where her husband was in business for a number of years and where all the children were born. With her husband and family, the late Mrs. Morrison arrived in the Valley in 1880— 38 years ago— so that she was indeed one of the pioneers of the district. Her husband predeceased her 21 years ago. She leaves a family of two sons and three daughters to mourn their loss, and for whom the keenest sympathy is felt. The sons are Messrs. Alex (K.V.) and William (Sydney), and the daughters Mrs. L. Carr (Unanderra), Mrs. Wm. Cox and Mrs J. Moffitt, of Barrengarry. Three other sons predeceased her. Of a kindly, cheerful disposition, a good neighbour, a true friend, a loving mother, the late Mrs. Morrison endeared herself, to all with whom she came in contact, and she bore with a fortitude worthy of emulation the suffering entailed by a long and painful illness, extending over fully three years. The funeral on Sunday afternoon was one of the largest this district has seen, being an evidence of the high regard in which the deceased lady was held in the district.

.. might be termed a terrible accident happened to a young girl (Elsie), daughter of Mr. Geo. Young, at Jamberoo on Thursday lost. From the meagre particulars to hand, we learn that the poor child, who is between 7 and 8 years of age, had her arm caught in the cogwheels of a hand separator, and before she could be released the flesh was torn off from the elbow to the wrist, Dr. Terrey, we believe, was sent for, and did all that was possible to relieve the unfortunate child, who is in a precarious condition, To make matters more sad, it need only be mentioned that the father (Mr, Geo. Young) died in Sydney on the 17th instant, Leaving a widow and six children to mourn their sad loss The Kiama Reporter and Illawarra Journal (NSW : 1899 - 1947) Saturday 26 October 1901 p 2

Death of Mrs. Jas. Morrow.— We have to record the death of a pioneer settler in the person of Mrs. Morrow, wife of Mr. James Morrow of this town. She had been ailing seriously about one month, though she had been a sufferer to some extent for a few years.

A nurse was in attendance upon her, and on Sunday she recovered her strength sufficiently to be able to walk about the house and grounds at Kiera. On Monday she was being dressed as usual when she complained of a pain in the head, and lay back, and she became unconscious and never rallied, dying on Monday at 1 o'clock. Her age was 72 years and her survivors are her husband, four sons, and two daughters— Messrs. George Morrow, Mimosa ; A. H. Morrow, Condobolin ; James Morrow on the farm at Cullinga ; and D. T. Morrow, architect, Newtown, Sydney ; Mrs. R. Burgess; Cootamundra ; and Mrs. Gordon, Fairfield. It will be remembered that her son, John Morrow, died of fever at Perth (W.A.), and her eldest daughter died at Cullinga. Mr. Morrow and his family came to the Cullinga district, and he and Mr. Irwin Smith were the first selectors under the Robertson Land Act of 1861, 29 years ago. The funeral yesterday afternoon, was largely attended, a solemn service being conducted by the Rev. B. Dinning at the Wesleyan Church, of which the deceased lady had been always a strong pillar. She always expressed a desire to die before her husband did, and her wish was gratified. We extend our kindly sympathy to Mr. Morrow and the family.

One of God's faithful followers in the person of Mrs. Elizabeth Morrow, received her home-call on Thursday, April 37th, and on Friday, a large congregation gathered at the Lindfield Church to engage in the last solemn service in connection with the death. The casket was hidden by the beautiful floral tributes that were sent, and there was a feeling of victory, and not defeated as the service proceeded. The hymns chosen were two that had been on her lips only a few hours before her passing, namely, 'Eternal Light' and 'Jesus, Lover of My Soul.' The Rev. G. E. Johnson, her minister, spoke feelingly of her beautiful life. Born into a Christian home at Kiama, Elizabeth Black received those lasting spiritual influences that moulded her life; Early she gave herself to her Master, Jesus Christ, and rejoiced in a happy experience of the Christian life. In 1887 she was married to George Morrow, and the home at Mimosa, near Temora, was formed. The marriage was one of exceeding happiness, and through the many years they were spared to each other, they were in complete agreement in their love for God and His Church. Mrs Morrow, soon after her arrival at Mimosa, commenced a Sunday School in her own home, and then later arranged for a church service. She was the soul of hospitality, and opened her home to many lonely folk, thus helping them by the gracious spiritual environment. She was a splendid housewife, and organised, in the interests of the Temora Church, for many years the Tea Tent at the Annual Show, often doing the major part of the preparation of the food. In 1908 to 1914 the home was at Scone, and there, as at Temora, she was actively interested in the church work. From 1914 to 1920, at Hornsby, and from 1920 to 1939 in the Lindfield Circuit, Miss Morrow continued her good work for God. Under the most distressing pains of sickness, she showed a very beautiful trust in God. She realised the presence of the Master with her, and He was her crowned King. The day before her death she quietly said, 'Safe into the haven guide, oh, receive my soul at last and ready for the home call,' she answered it quietly, and her poor body had rest. After cremation her ashes were placed in the grave, where her husband's body lies, in the Gore Hill cemetery. Her children, four daughters and two sons, have a wonderful memory of a faithful mother who poured out her affection most fully upon them, and the Church on earth has lost one of her loyal members. But the hope of a blessed reunion cheers all who remain. The Methodist (Sydney, NSW : 1892 - 1954) Saturday 24 June 1939 p 14

Late Mrs. M. F. Morton

The announcement of the death on Monday morning of Mrs. Morton, wife of Mr. Mark Morton, M.L.A., was responsible for sincere regret being expressed throughout the South Coast and the State.

A native of Kiama, her first, marriage was to Dr. T. P. Anderson, of Kiama, and Mr. Kenneth Anderson, of Canberra, is her only son.

Some years ago she married the popular Member for Wollondilly, Mr M. F. Morton, and was a wonderful help-meet, both socially and politically.

Deceased was a sister of Sir George Fuller, Colonel Col. Fuller, and Mr. A. D. Fuller, and there is one sister surviving.

She was loved by all for her kindly and sympathetic nature. Her great and active interest in the C.W.A., Girl Guides and Boy Scout Movements is well and favourably known throughout the South Coast and Tablelands. She was always sympathetic to calls of illness or distress and her practical assistance could always be relied upon.

The funeral on Tuesday last was the largest and most representative ever seen in the Nowra district. Among the chief mourners were Colonel and Mr. A. D. Fuller, and all parts of the State were represented. South Coast Times and Wollongong Argus (NSW : 1900 - 1954) Friday 13 December 1935 p 16

On Sunday, March 5, at 2 o'clock a.m., there passed away an old and highly respected Newbridge In the person of Mrs Michael Moss, Deceased was a native of Rosegreen, County Tipperary, Ireland, and was 71 years of age. Sho arrived in New South Wales on the ship Hope with her parents in 1842, They took up there residence at Jamboroo, where her father was most successful in farming pursuits, Sho was married to Mr . Moss at Jamberoo in 1861 There they carried on farming pursuits, but eventually Mr. Moss obtained a , situation on the railway— which he held for over 30years— being located In Sydney, Newbridge and Hornsby. At the latter place he met with an accident, resulting in the amputation of his leg, which necessitated his resigning his position on the rail way. They then resided, at Thornleigh, where they carried on dairying, and while there Mrs. Moss had charge of the altar in the local church, a duty which she faithfully performed. At Moorilda, too, for years she had the same charge, and took delight in supplying the decorations, and was always ready to help or do anything she possibly could for the church. She was a most devout Catholic, and led a very edifying life, which was rewarded and crowned by a very happy death. Very Rev. Father M'Grath (Rockley) administered the last Sacraments, and he also read the prayers for the departing soul. The Sisters, too, frequently visited her during her short illness. She was of a most kind and genial disposition, and consequently made a host of friends, who all vied with each other in their watchings and attentions during her illness, and did all that was possible to relieve her sufferings, She was attended, too, by Dr. Mitchell, Blayney, but the fatal disease (bronchitis) battled all their skill. Mrs. Moss leaves a husband and an only child (Mrs. Stephen Healy, Moorilda) to mourn their loss. Many expressions of condolence were received by Mr. Moss and Mrs. Healy in their sad bereavement. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon in the local cemetery, and was very largely attended, relatives and friends from the surrounding districts being present in great numbers. — ? R.I. P.

She was sitting on the staircase talking to a friend named Emily Porter. Tbe granddaughter, on returning home a few minutes later, discovered the deceased lying on her back, with her. head on the floor and her feet resting on the fourth step of the stairs. Dr. Parser was immediately called in and on examining the woman pronounced life extinct. From a subsequent examination the doctor concluded that death had resulted from concussion of the brain. The jury found that the deceased died from the effects of injuries received through having fallen downstairs. The Daily Telegraph (Sydney, NSW : 1883 - 1930) Wednesday 6 June 1888 p 5

SALVATION ARMY FUNERAL — A funeral procession passed through some of the Hamilton streets this week on its way to the cemetery, such as is seldom seen. The funeral was that of a baby named Irene May Mourant, aged 1 year 8 months, daughter of Mr. John Mourant. The little white coffin, instead of being taken out in the hearse, was carried by four army lasses, wearing white sashes, and a cab containing the friends of the bereaved family brought up the rear. It had at first been intended that the girls should carry the coffin only as far as the Academy, but they insisted upon taking it right out to the grave. Ensign Ede officiated and delivered a short impressive address, the main feature of the ceremony consisting in the singing of appropriate hymns.

Mrs. Sophia Margaret Mowle, widow of Mr. Stewart M. Mowle, whose death was announced on Saturday at the age of 82 years, was the sixth daughter of the late Rev. William West Simpson, M.A. She arrived in the colony with her family in 1840, at the age of 6 years, the voyage being made in the ship Earl Gray, and occupied many weary months. She lived for about two years at The King's School, Parramatta, where her father was acting as headmaster during the absence in England of the Rev. Dr. Forrest. Subsequently, in 1843, the family moved to Wiseman's Ferry, were Mr. Simpson was rector of the parish for about 10 years. Upon Mr. Simpson finding the work beyond him the family was transferred in the old King William IV. to Dapto. Here the late Mrs. Mowle was associated with the work of her father's parish. She was married in 1865, and in the early Seventies found opportunity for philanthropic labours amongst the sick and poor at Randwick, where she resided. Doctors were few and far between, and trained nurses almost unknown. Up to the day before her death she was engaged on garments for the Children's Hospital. She was in full possession of every faculty, and read and sewed without glasses, and she took an active interest in everything around her. She leaves behind her one son, two daughters, and a large circle of friends. The Sydney Morning Herald 28 May 1917
