Ian &/or your successor/s : Hello !
I hope you may be able to assist in the above regard.
Your 2014 Newsletter contained, inter alia, the following :
From: Claire Buchtmann
Sent: Tuesday, 1 July 2014 10:48 AM
Subject: Alexander Margoschis
My name is Claire Buchtmann and I have been given a photo album which has alot of old photos in it from the late 1800s, early 1900s. My Aunt found it at a tip years ago - which I believe was in Queanbeyan.
She thought I might like the album as it was so old...although really it's of no use to me, and being a very amateur geneologist myself I know if it were my family photos I would want to be reunited with them.
I did a search on Ancestry.com and saw the records entered by your group for Alexander and thought I would contact you if you know of any relations of his that I could possibly contact (or they can contact me) as I would really like to reunite these photos with their rightful owner.
Kind regards, Claire Buchtmann
We can put your email in our next newsletter and that may find a contact among our readers.
Is there any chance you kept a record of what happened to this album ?
I am currently researching "Alexander MARGOSCHIS " , whose marriage to " Eliza Elizth HAIN " was recorded in the Cooma district in 1868.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely Phil Grace
PS I have yet to check your later newsletters, sorry.Hi Phil,

Hi Ian, (Late news: see end of this email for surprise ending)
Sorry to have wasted your time with my previous emails. I have done some further research. The death certificate of Dr O'Reilly shows his place of burial as "private cemetery Rockton" and the witnesses as A Brownlee and WH Brownlee. This would seem to reinforce my grandfather's recollections.
I also came across a number of interesting on-line articles:
This articles states that The school was burned down at Rockton, all the children had grown up there. Others were the Kimbers, Flanagans, Finnigans, Brownlies, Ken and John McCole "
" The Rockton post office and telegraph office was formerly know as Bondi or Bundi. This was the property of Captain John Stevenson, who was buried there close to the graves of some other people. The captain's grave has a headstone so it is readily found."
This articles states that
"Bondi was the name of the area until the first mail service started, when too many hiccups occurred because of Bondi in Sydney and the mail was getting criss-crossed. The name was changed to Rockton."
Families that lived in this area were Fairweather, Finigan, Flanagan, Bruce, Hayes, Rixon, Egan, Umback, Smith, McCaffrey, Piesley, Moses, Dickie, Hogg, McCole, Brownlie, Laing, Brasington, Sinclair, Brotherton, Rodwell, Twigg, Lambert, Baily, Jones, Sweeny, Platts, Farrell, Kimber, Brodie, Franklin, Woodcroft, Atkins, Solgyen, Frietag, Lind, Douglas, Skwara, Litchfield, Critchlow and Ventry.
This article by Sue Sims states "Captain John Stevenson died in 1874 at Bondi, was carried up the hill on his property and according to his wishes was buried standing up so he could look over his land for eternity. I have stood next to his headstone at Bondi, now known as 'Rosebank' (South of Bombala, NSW), gazing out over his land reflecting on his life."
Eureka. I have just located a publication that I forgot I had and have neglected to read, titled Rockton - The Past and the Present by Neil Platts, a prominent local historian.
I've attached 2 scans from that publication showing that Alec Brownlee did in fact own the land previously owned by Captain Stevenson and containing the private cemetery and that Dr O'Reilly is indeed interred in that cemetery. My grandfather's recollection has proved accurate.
Might I suggest that this information might be brought to the attention of Errol. Please feel free to provide him with my email if he wishes further discussion.
Thank you for your patience and the great service that you have provided to all for so many years.
As always, warmest regards
