Letter From Sheila Murchie. 12/12 Edgeworth Place Cartwright. 
I can only tell you what my mother told me.
Patrick and Margaret were married, at Liverpool at the Catholic 
Church, and settled on the banks of the Georges River at Moorebank.
They suffered many hardships. Every time there was a lot of heavy 
rain they were flooded out from their home as the Georges River rose!
Margaret Neville (Mums mother) died in Goulburn 16 Dec 1912 and buried 
at Goulburn.
I had the loveliest Grandmother and Grandfather anyone could have. 
Do hope you can work this out, it is history my mother told me. 
She would talk to me for hours and I was a good listener. 
By Sheila Murchie.

Sheila never married and in 1988 lived in Blacktown 
And in 1988 she was waiting to go into an old people's home
