    I am interested to know if anybody knows about William Allen, storekeeper, listed on the BAILLIER’S 1868 VICTORIAN DIRECTORY for Jones Creek. My ancestor Elizabeth ALLEN was married to a William Allen. She died in 1860 and is buried at the Waanyarra Cemetery. At last years’ Back to Tarnagulla there was a photo of a William Allen but I am not sure if he is related to the more famous Allens of the area or me. If anyone has any information I’d be very grateful. Kind regards,

    My ancestor was Thomas Leech, dairyman at Grassy Flat mentioned above.
    Thomas later had a property at Woosang and built a house called “Leechfield” which was kept in the family until about 1918 but is now no longer standing.
    We will be visiting on about 7-8 January 2016 and would love to talk to someone who knows about the history of the area.
