More work has been done getting hold of some big basalt rocks.

Steve, Barry and Neil, hard at it.
A fine collection of basalt rocks. Safe at Earls place. And no one is likely to steal them!

2nd June.

Na, what about the one behind ya Earl?

Apparently there is a few old blokes getting around, looking for and checking out some basalt rocks. There will be a big main rock for the commemorative plaque at the hall, plus another smaller one at the old 'Big Jacks creek' school site, the Warrah creek school site and maybe even a few others.

They are big blokes, and they have big loaders, and big trucks, so expect something big.

Stay tuned.

Just a quick point re Mary Gallagher (Pearson). While Mary did die in Armidale the date was 26 September 1886 (NSW BDM 12817/1886)
