QUINLAN, ROWLANDS, SMITH( Illawarra & Pambula), THORN, WOODGER.
My goodness they were a wild lot!
Jacob BUCKETT went insane after he was evicted by CARRUTHERS (who apparently
had quite a few problems with the locals). He died a few months later in
Tarban Creek Asylum. Poor man, I always felt very sorry for him he had a
dreadful life, which fell apart again when he was just getting on his feet.
His son, James didn't get on with the stepfather and ran away.
I must get to Kiama soon .There seems to be a lot to find out. Where would
you recommend that I start? I have read the McCaffrey Papers. Are there any
