Grandmother thought Australia was a very primitive and God forsaken country and believed it should
all be returned to the Aboriginals forthwith, then she and Charles would return to Dublin and live
happily ever after. This of course never happened. However in true pioneer spirit she
adapted and I think finally came to terms with Australia in her own way. She never did
get use to the terrible heat - as she called it.
One of the many early settlers that helped make this country what it is today even though they may
not have realized this at the time.
