"With Glimpses of Creeks and a Vision of Mosses"
Yes Joan - I'm sure there would be sad tales to tell - like in most remote farming areas.I'm looking forward to your next trip.
Sadly they look long forgotten.
My Dad recently found my GG grandmother's grave from 1873 on a farming property in Qld.She was an Irish immigrant from Manchester. Her sons took to bush life like ducks to water - great horse and bushmen but apparently, she got lost in the bush near the station where they lived (near Stanthorpe)- she was eventually found but she died from exposure. She was only my age and left 10 kiddies.
Hah ... that story of Lettie's is a ripper. She should be documenting what her Da is researching. I shall tell her, shall I. I think I have done so already, but with youngsters it is always worth harping on!!This is the sort of graveyard that I die for. Sorry.But the stories here would be so good to research and let the people live once more.
I know.I should start a blog on graveyards in NSW.What would I use for free time ...
