Trove Tuesday

Trove Tuesday – Rev. Garrett John Russell

This week, I am featuring articles about my 3x great grandfather, the Rev Garrett John Russell, Incumbent of Buninyong.

The first article I am featuring is about an accident Garrett had, where he fractured two ribs.

In 1873, Garrett rented out some of his land to miners.
