    The descendants of Gottlieb Wilhelm SCHUETZE 1843-1922



    Mr. Gottlieb Wilhelm SCHUETZE, late of 31 Bakewell Road, St Peters, who died at Loxton
    Hospital on Good Friday aged 79 years was an early pioneer of the state, having
    arrived in Adelaide with his parents from Machtenburg, Saxony, 73 years ago.

    He first resided at Hahndorf, and later moved to Blumberg, of which town he was the
    first postmaster. In 1874 he went to reside at Mannum and there took an active
    interest in every local movement. Among various positions which he held were those of
    Chairman of the Mannum District Council and Chairman of the Mannum Institute. 35
    years ago he spent considerable time and money in advocating the closer settlement of
    the Murray Valley by means of irrigation.

    In 1893 he returned to Blumberg and subsequently settled in Adelaide. For sixteen
    years he had represented Messrs Drummond Brothers, travelling the Murray Flats, from
    Meningie to Renmark.

    He was devoted to flowers and music, and was able to play the piano up to within a
    week of his demise. He has left a widow, four daughters and two sons.

  22. Mary Fraser HARBORD (nee WILSON)
    List
    Public

    Mary Fraser* WILSON (b. 1864) must have been an inspiration for women of her generation. One
    of six children born into poverty in bleak Dunbar (a town in East Lothian on the southeast coast of
    Scotland, 28 miles east of Edinburgh), she became independent early from her family by securing a
    domestic role as a servant, emigrating to Australia, getting married in NSW to a gold
    prospector/adventurer, mothering two girls, taking them back to visit her parents (who now lived in
    Lancaster England), returning to Australia, moving to Papua where her husband died, evacuated from
    Papua to Townsville with her daughter two grand-children, relocating to Perth, Western Australia,
    where she died in 1950, at the age of 86. A remarkable life.

    Mary’s parents were John WILSON (1836-1904), a shoemaker, and Christina GRAY
    (1831-1904), and it appears that the whole family had left Scotland by the 1901 census, almost
    certainly seeking a better life. The parents relocated to Lancaster, England with Mary’s brother
    Alex (b.1862) and sister Annie (b.1866) (who may have emigrated to Seattle). An older
    brother Fraser (b.1863) does appear on the 1871 but not on the 1881 Scotland census. Oldest
    brother John (b. 1853) was already established in Lancaster as a baker, marrying there in
    1876. Her older sister Isabella (1861-1900) probably moved to Lancaster following her
    husband’s death in 1895, because their orphaned daughter Christina (b.1884) is shown with
    her grandparents in the 1901 census in Lancaster. Now, much to the delight of the researchers, also
    in that household in 1901 were two grand-daughters, Myee HARBORD and Myola HARBORD
    both born in Queensland, Australia!

    It is not known where these children’s parents were on that census night, or the reasons why they
    were in England.

    A quick search through Australian records (Footnote 1) confirmed that Mary Fraser WILSON
    married in 1895 a Horace Henry (Harry) HARBORD (1850-1931) at Wallsend, NSW, and they had two
    children Myee (1896-1937) and Myola (1897-1974) both born at the mining town of
    Maytown, Queensland.

    Harry was an adventurer gold prospector arriving in Australia in 1865, and later taking his young
    family to Papua, where he eventually died in 1931 aged 80, of fever. It is now thought that he
    temporarily returned with his family to England in 1901, to seek more funds for his mining
    adventures. It’s fortunate he did, as the entry of the grand-daughters on the census was the spark
    for much of this research.

    What were the circumstances of Mary emigrating to Australia? Surely she would have been accompanied?

    No definitive records have been found, and it is now supposed she travelled alone – resolutely
    following in the footsteps of her two uncles: Robert Fraser WILSON (1838-1913) who emigrated
    in 1864 - successfully establishing himself in Adelaide, and Robert GRAY (1833-1901) who
    emigrated almost 20 years later in 1883, and who tragically eventually died of lung congestion after
    a coal mining accident in Wallsend. This is probably where where she met her husband-to-be, Harry.
    Electoral rolls show her subsequently to be in Maytown in 1903 and Cairns in 1908 - so it would seem
    the young family moved to Papua after that date.

    First daughter Myee married E H CHESTER, had two children (one called Myee (!)
    CHESTER
    ) and died in Papua in 1937.

    Second daughter Myola married (1931, Port Moresby) a larger-than-life character called
    Sydney ELLIOTT-SMITH who became a Lieutenant-Colonel during the war and then in 1942, when
    civilian administrative control passed to military control, a founding leader of the Australian New
    Guinea Administrative Unit (ANGAU) and became the northern administrator for the Department of
    Native Affairs. After a stint back in Australia, he returned to PNG in 1951 to take up the
    appointment of District Commissioner Higatura, and then Native Land Commissioner at Kokopo. His
    exploits became famous, and Sydney named a lake in Papua after his wife, Myola. Myola (b.1897) had
    two children, another Myola (b.1934) and another Myee (b.1938).

    As the war worsened, in December 1941 all civilians were evacuated from Papua, including Myola’s
    young family as well as the now widowed Mary (now aged 77), who landed in Townsville, Queensland,
    by flying boat. (Footnote 2). It is presumed that Mary might have returned to Australia after
    her husband's death in 1931, with the electoral rolls showing her enrolled in 1936 in Warwick Qld,
    1937 Hamilton Newcastle, 1937 Griffith Qld, then returned to Papua until 1941, and in 1943 Sherwood
    Qld (with Myola), and then in 1949 South Perth (with Myola and Sydney).

    In 1949-50, Sydney's family had relocated to Western Australia where he was a Deputy Commissioner
    for Native Affairs. In 1951 Sydney returned to PNG. Mary Fraser WILSON was at her daughter
    Myola’s Perth residence where she died in 1950. (Footnote 3). Sydney remarried and lived in
    Melbourne until his death in 1974, and Myola also died in 1974 in Brisbane, Queensland, where some
    of her descendants still live.
