For this week’s Trove Tuesday post, I am sharing articles I found for my great grandfather, Alexander Alexander Harley.
The first article I found was Alexander’s death notice.
The next two articles were the marriage notices for Alexander and my great grandmother, Henrietta Louisa Russell.
There were many articles that mentioned A. A. Harley, Woolamai. I have chosen to share just a few that I found.
The first article is from before his marriage, when he was living at Albert Park.
This next article is when he first applied for land in Gippsland.
The following article features his work as a councillor.
His eldest son Harrie is mentioned as well in this next article.
More of the family get a mention in this article. First mentioned is A. A. Harley, then Edna Harley, his youngest daughter, followed by Keith Harley, one of his sons, and finally Dorrie Harley, another of his daughters.
My final article is about the sale of the family farm at Woolamai.
The home farm was bought by his son Cecil and daughter Dorothy. My fondest memories of my childhood were holidays spent at the nearby Kilcunda Caravan Park, and visiting Uncle Cec and Aunty Dorrie on the farm. The photo featured above is one I took in 1984, from the hill above the farm, looking towards Kilcunda.
