Cemetery Records

There are lots of sad stories within the Muttaburra region in relation to deaths, as the below newspaper stories state:
DISCOVERY of HUMAN Remains –The police at Tambo have telegraphed to the Commissioner of Police that a human skeleton has been found six miles from Muttaburra. There is nothing to lead to the identification of the remains.
[1882 ‘Warwick Hospital.’ Warwick Argus (Old.: 1879 – 1901), 15 July, p. 2., viewed 25 Mar 2016, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article75664470]

The mailman from Muttaburra to Hughenden reports having found a man dead, 10 miles from Cameron Downs. He is supposed to have died from thirst. There are 50 miles without water on this road.
[1882 ‘LATE CABLEGRAMS.’ The Maitland Mercury and Hunter River General Advertiser (NSW: 1843 – 1893), 12 December, p. 6., viewed 25 Mar 2016, http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article863712]

We don’t know the total number of deaths and probably never will but we have tried to do our best.
