Thanks Cando,
That's a good suggestion - a letter to the local paper could turn up something.

I doubt there is a headstone on Gertrude's grave as I can't find her name on two online sites that list the headstones at Moonta. CANDO

I am not sure, but there is an incongruity in listings here...

There is no showing headstone for Florence Gertrude Newting or Newtwig, but there is on ..

a photo available for Florence Gertrude HENTWIG BEAGLEHOLE at Moonta.
As mentioned that is where she is buried in close proximity to her father John BEAGLEHOLE. He has a photographed headstone too.

PerhapsSue  this is  her mother and  she may very well have a headstone

Hi all

Can't see The Peoples Weekly on the NLA catalogue  :-\.  There is a paper called The Pioneer which seems to have run from 1898-1960.  There are no other papers that include the dates given that I can see on the catalogue for the Yorke peninsula.  However, I suppose a tragedy like that would likely be reported in the Adelaide paper?

I'll have a look next time.  ;D

Lots of Beaglehole refs on the ANL beta newspaper site

Hi Jenn,

This is a possibility Jenn, but I find it significant that the burial for a person called Florence Gertrude Beaglehole is not listed with the other Beagleholes at Moonta though a headstone photo is!

  And one cannot ignore the similarity in name between HENTWIG and NEWTWIG.Itooks to me like a mistranscription from a headstone which is part of the headstone of John and perhaps others.

There are other women by the name Beaglehole in close proximity to John who may well be his wife

Florence Gertrude NEWTWIG is buried in the adjacent grave to her parents who are both in the one grave and is it is quite obvious that not only has her burial record been mistranscribed by the Copper Triangle Council but the linked website has misread the headstone inferring that she is a BEAGLEHOLE.  I would say it was a double grave with one headstone.  Perhaps the inscription reads something like and their daughter, Florence Gertrude NEWTWIG.

Gertrude  [as she is named on her mistranscribed burial record] was buried at 10' with is the depth to allow a 2nd burial.  Her mother was buried at this depth in 1927 and her father is in the same grave.

Naturally with the mistranscribed names I missed both the burial record and headstone.  Can only post what I find.

The archived copies of The People's Weekly didn't appear to be in the SLSA catalogue either.  It commenced publication in c1860.

Woke up this morning to find all the activity that had gone on - thank you all so much for looking for this family.
It seems there may be a daughter - Clara - thank you Cando for finding that - although, tracing her may be just as difficult.
I shall take your advise and write to the local paper.
