Graveyards at Maude, Oxley, Hay & Leeton NSW

PostAuthor: LozinOz » Tue Apr 01, 2008 8:21 am

Some pics from our recent trip chasing our ancestors out western NSW

Not all of the photos are rellies . . . they just looked so deserted I had to take a pic of them out in the forgotten burial grounds.

..............

This is the original little corrugated iron church in Oxley NSW

..............

The countryside is dead flat . . . and very little vegetation . . and a long walk - through barbedwire fences and off the beaten track to find the old graveyard.

Image

....................

Dont know who . . maybe one day their rellies will find them

This is my gtgran Issabella Margaret Goodfellow (nee McClure)
The headstone was standing straight, up till a big storm went through in Dec 2007 - thankfully the marble didn't break when it fell.

Some more of someone elses family members

The Darchy family crypt near the old Oxley Station homestead . . now also inhabited by rabbits !!!

At least the graveyard at Maude had a fence around it to keep the stock out . . .

Our current search ended in Leeton . . . when we found the burial site of William Henry Goodfellow . . (husband of Isabella in Oxley)
Maud Catherine Bennett doesn't bleong to our family . . but it was her name that guided us to find the plot next to her where our William is burried.
