    • Ref:Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal (NSW : 1851 - 1904) Thursday 19 April 1900 p 2 Family Notices "OBITUARY. MRS. RICHARD READ. The intelligence of the death of Mrs. Richard Read, of the Post Office Hotel, widow of the late Mr. Richard Read, has come with a shock to many in the town and district, for there were few who were better known and more highly respected. Mrs. Read first complained of illness on Sunday week, and thinking that it was only a slight cold she procured a cough mixture. On the Tuesday she was so much worse that a medical man was called in, and he at once found that she was suffering from pneumonia and bronchitis in its most severe form. Everything that medical skill, careful nursing, and loving attention could do to stay the disease, was done but without effect. Although her family hoped that she would again be restored to health, hopes of her recovery were abandoned yesterday, and during the night she passed away. Her death has been a severe blow to her family and a wide circle of friends. Mrs. Read was 57 years of age, and was married at Forbes 34 years ago. About 18 years ago her husband died, leaving her with seven children, most of whom have been brought up and trained by her. For many years she has carried on business as a publican, and has won the respect of a large portion of the community."
    Notes 
    • Ref:The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser (NSW : 1843 - 1893) Thursday 25 July 1861 "ACCIDENT.-On Friday evening, the 12th instant, Miss Susan Goodwin, youngest daughter of Mrs. W. Fenn, of Wowingragong, being engaged in some domestic employment near a fire, her garments, which were of very slight texture, ignited, and she was almost instantly enveloped in flames ; and but for the selfless devotion of her sister, Miss White, the consequences would, in all probability, have been fatal. As it is, the latter is the greatest sufferer, having had her arms and hands fearfully burned. Both of the amiable young ladies are, however, I am happy to say, doing well.-Bathurst Times, July 20."

    • Dennis and Mary Green's property on the Lachlan River was originally called "Wowingragong". In 1861, when gold was discovered in the region, the area was later to be classified as the Lachlan Gold field well before the township of Forbes was in existence. Robert White and the Green family were to become firm friends being among some of the earliest settlers in the area. As a consequence, Robert White and Catherine Porter struck up a close relationship. On 24 April , 1839 , Robert White (jnr) was born, a son to Robert (snr) and Catherine. The new family returned to Sydney, possibly for stock and supplies, where on 17 August , 1839 their son was baptised at St Luke' s Church in Liverpool. The family returned to the Lachlan for a year or so but was resident in Liverpool when their daughter, Eliza Mary, was born on 8 July , 1841. She was baptised a month later at St Luke's church on 8 August , 1841. Robert White died on the 25 November, 1842 only 6 days after writing his last will and testament. He was buried at St Paul's Church of England, Cobbity in the Parish of Narellan on 28 November 1842. He was 40 years of age and was listed as a grazier.
