Attached is the memorial for Mary Evans Macquarie, published in the newspaper by her daughter Julia Buckland.

I wonder if Mary and Charles kept in touch at all??

Hi davecrowley, and others in this thread,
I have just joined Rootschat after finding this thread via a Google search for info on my husband's family tree.
Your post on 28Apr13 mentioned that Mary Evans McQuarie's mother was a Ngamba girl. Are you able to provide more info or a source for this as we are quite interested to find out more about Mary McQuarie/Macquarie, the mother of Mary Evans McQuarie.
Thanks,
L

Hi Debra
Thank you, that is very kind of you to share this image.  :)
I believe RobertGG, davecrowley and I are looking into the same branch of our family tree, and our  link to Mary Evans McQuarie/Macquarie who was born in 1834. I seem to be playing catch up with other (previously unknown/distant) members of the family who have already done research that we (my husband & I) did not know about until now when our curiosity has been sparked.
I am yet to gain access to a copy of Annabellla Boswell's diaries that were mentioned in an earlier post but look forward to reading them at some point in the future, just out of curiosity, to see if Mary Mcquarie/Macquarie is mentioned, or indeed if any of her children are mentioned.
Thanks again for sharing.
I am looking forward to discovering more.
Kind regards,
L

It is also now believed that the first Mary (b 1815/1816; d 1928 Burnt Bridge @112 years) had been orphaned at the Blackmans Point massacre 1826, and taken in by the Innes family at that time.
