Trove Tuesday

Trove Tuesday – Henry Palmer Marr

 

The following are a few articles I found for my great grandfather, Henry Palmer Marr

In this first article, Henry’s application for land was rejected.

In the next two articles, Henry was having a clearing sale.  This would have been because the family were moving to North Melbourne.
