Hello
Thanks for compiling the list of burials at MC cemetery. My great great great grandparents John and Mary Jackson are buried there in unmarked graves in the RC section. I have often thought how wonderful it would be to have an archeologist do a survey (underground mapping) and locate graves. I also wonder about the legalities of opening them for DNA recognition?

Creek until about 1975 when blow in shooters made trouble for everybody.
In 1995 I convinced my brother to make a trip back to the Creek with me in his 4WD and we revisited all the old haunts. It was certainly nostalgic.He passed away the following year. The Jokers grave says it all
Lots of good memories of the place and that's why I'm back again.

First visited Majors Creek in 1966 when everything in the town was 'old'. Used to go rabbit shooting in the creek gullies finding Cook's old Hydraulic ram plunking away 24/7, bits of mining equipment like tram wagons and track and the occasional deep pit you wouldn't want to fall into.
When I could drive I came down with my brother and we camped in Ken's property at Back Creek. Always visited Mick & Danica Milic and his neighbour Dushan & Maria and we could never leave without being a bit tipsy after double rounds of Slivovitz and taking home a couple of dozen eggs.
We kept coming back the The Creek until about 1975 when blow in shooters made trouble for everybody.
In 1995 I convinced my brother to make a trip back to the Creek with me in his 4WD and we revisited all the old haunts. It was certainly nostalgic.
He passed away the following year. The Jokers grave says it all

Hi,
I am planning a trip to your area as I am researching my 4 x Great Grandfather Major William Sandys Elrington.
If you have any suggestions regarding where to find more information about him and his family I would love to hear from you. I am very keen to learn more of his original property and it's location and what life was like in the district during the pioneer days of Majors Creek and Mt Elrington.
I have a little researched information on the Major and family I will happily share also. Mostly indirect information I must say, sourced from newspaper articles and a particularly interesting play published by a family member.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
Thanking you.
Kind regards,
Melody Berden

To Leanne Chant........... I'm afraid "Not Just Ordinary People" by Pam Oxley is out of print. She published it herself as a tribute to her ancestors, and there were only about 200 copies made. It was a wonderful book for anyone from that area. She ran out of copies several years ago. Pam is now in a nursing home. We corresponded for over 30 years, sharing information about our Keyte & Wiggins ancestors.

VALE - My friend Mary PROTHERO
As a 9 year old kid I knew this wonderful person when her surname was still Ffench when she looked after my cousins Bev & Garry Lewis. Mary's father and my grandfather Albert (Bon) Flack were great mates and owners of  land out where Braidwood Station at Ballalaba is now.
Time saw Max come along, always smiling and my biggest memory is that he could play the harmonica (mouth organ) on his removable teeth!. Their children still exhibit his smile.
Mary will be so comfortable with Max now and her brothers she thought so much of.

Hi, I have been donig my Family Tree and I have come to a bit of a standstill and I was hoping that you might be able to help.My grandfather James Michael Green was born in Braidwood on 13/12/1868 and his father James Joseph Green was also born in Braidwood on 24/10/1841 and died in Majors Creek on 11/10/1916.His father was George Green and came from the UK. He died in 1893 in Braidwood also.I have no idea how or why they were in the area other than they might have been involved in mining. I am hoping you may be able shed some light on their involvement in your community.
Kind Regards
Rob Green
