DEATH OF AN OLD IDENTITY - Mary Ann Freeman (1805 - 1891)

I have to record (writes our correspondent at Swansea, Lake Macquarie) the death of the oldest resident in this district, viz, Mrs Mary Ann Freeman, at the ripe age of 86. The old lady retained all her faculties to the last. She was one of those busy wiry little woman, who could never remain a moment in idleness, but be continually employed in making and mending for her grand and great-grandchildren. Mrs Freeman came to the colony sixty five years ago. Soon after arrival she married James Freeman, had many ups and downs in those early days, and at last herself and her husband settled down at a place then known as "Cabbage Tree" (now the residence of Mr E.J. Hargraves , son of E.H. Hargraves, the first gold discoverer in Australia). Mr and Mrs Freeman remained at "Norahville" where they kept a dairy farm for over twenty years rearing a family of six daughters and one son. The late Mr John Taaffe of Swansea (who died six years this month) better known all over the district as "Jack the Native" married the eldest: and Mr Thomas Boyd, a present pilot at Lake Macquaire Heads, the second. There are alive forty great - grandchildren. Daring the old people's residence at Cabbage Tree they had several visits from Bushrangers. On one occasion the Marshall Gang, including the notorious " Jew Boy" paid them a visit. Mr Freeman was from home when they arrived. Marshall was leader of this gang, and finding only Mrs Freeman at home, the following conversation occurred - Have you any corn for the horses? Mrs Freeman "No sir". Marshall "this is the first time I have known Cabbage Tree to be without corn. Mrs Freeman "We have a good paddock sir "Marshall "That will do" do you know who I am? Mrs Freeman "no sir" Marshall "Well I am Marshall, the Bushranger. Do not be alarmed, we only want food and shelter for the night. But be aware of betraying us. It was customary for one of gang to keep watch whilst the others slept, and this night it happened to be the "Jew Boy's" watch, who, when he thought all hands were asleep, made insulting overtures to Mrs Freeman (who was sitting up, waiting her husbands return.) These she strenuously resisted. Marshall, who happened to be awake in the next room, heard all, rushed out, covered the "Jew Boy" with his revolver and would have shot him dead, only for the timely intervention of Mr Freeman, who arrived home in the nick of time for the Jew Boy. Marshal was depicted by the old lady as a gentlemanly fellow, never on any occasion allowing any of his gang to molest females or use violence unnecessarily. For the last ten years the old lady has resided with her eldest daughter , Mrs E. Taaffe at Swansea, where she has had every care and attention that loving hands could bestow in her declining years. The remains were buried today in the Church of England burying ground, Belmont Cemetery, the last rites of the Church of England (of which the old lady was a member) having been performed by the Rev. G.M. Brown, incumbent of Belmont parish. There was a large attendance of relatives and friends, including grand and great-grandchildren. and thus another connecting link of the past has gone. Swansea 17th July.
