However, you have stated that Tommy (Jabalya) of Alroy Downs claims to be Daisy's only child when inquiring about her pension cheques. There does not appear to be anything to substantiate his statement, as his parents have been marked deceased on his original record, and his date of birth was then given as 1895, later brought forward to 1905 on station information. Daisy was given date of birth as 1900.

As with most forms from Tennant Creek Hospital there is very little detail. However, we believe the deceased is Maggie Alangunji, first consort Duncan Jugaridi, children: Alec Ngijirigbi (1943), Eric Mangabi (1947), Jacky Wadraji (1949), and Hilda (DOB unknown). Apparently, Chuckler Anderson was second consort. Our present query is Hilda, who was stated to be Maggie's child on original census material prior to compilation of the Register of Wards, but we do not have any personal record of her. A notation states Hilda lived in Darwin but we cannot identify her. Would you please make inquiries in an endeavour to establish Hilda's whereabouts, if presumed still alive. As Maggie's usual place of residence given on the death form is Tennant Creek Village, there may be someone there who has information on Hilda to assist us. Also, could you advise whether Chuckler Anderson is Chuckler Wiriwiri (Jangala / Warramunga), DOB 1919, previous consort Norah Munmunala (deceased 7.10.1966); children Alice Bringali (9.10.1945), Kate / Kay Bulungali Graham (11. 9.1949), Polly Banabulaji (1.11.1953), Peppi (12. 5.1963). An early reply would be appreciated as the death cannot be registered until the correct information is obtained. 12. 5.1972 From Welfare Tennant Creek to Welfare Darwin Re Death - Maggie Anderson - Alangunji Tennant Creek 13. 4.1972 The Maggie Anderson who died at Tennant Creek on 13. 4.1972 was Maggie Anderson - Alangunji - Nalyarima - Garawa - ROW p63, ex Creswell Downs. First consort Duncan Jugaridi (divorced), children: Alex Ngijirijbi (1943), Eric Mangabi (1947), Jacky Wadraji (1949). Chuckler Anderson is not Chuckler Wiriwiri Jangala - Warramunga. This Chuckler is living with his wife Norah P/C Munmunali - Nabananga - Warramunga at Rockhampton Downs. Norah is not deceased, and their children are: Elsie P/C Nagamara (1948, deceased 23. 5.1962), Kate P/C Graham (1949), Polly P/C Nagamara (1953), Pippi P/C (12. 5.1963), Alice Nagamara (1946).

Her body is currently at Tennant Creek Hospital. Mr Skinner is 65 years of age and in receipt of an age pension. he has no assets nor bank account and has been quoted the sum of $800.00 to have his wife buried in Grafton. He is of course unable to find this amount of money. Would you be good enough to advise me what means are available locally for the burial of his wife. A daughter, Mrs Gloria Webb of 2 Ellen Street, South Grafton, will possibly be attending the funeral. Mr Skinner is unable to attend because of the distance and his health and it would appear to me that the deceased will have to be buried at Tennant Creek. Should this not be your responsibility would you kindly refer it to the appropriate authority. 26.10.1972 From Welfare Tennant Creek to Child and Social Welfare Grafton NSW Re Mrs Violet May Skinner (deceased) Your letter regarding the above deceased person, has been handed to us by the Police. This office would be unable to assist Mr Skinner in having his wife buried in Grafton, but the usual cost of a burial in Tennant Creek would be approximately $78.00, however this can also be waived if the relatives, as in Mr Skinner's case can not afford to take responsibility to pay. If Mrs Gloria Webb does attend the funeral, as the deceased's\ daughter, she may be asked to accept responsibility, if this is the case and she could not afford to do so, she should refuse to sign any documents that would make her liable. I believe there is a delay of approximately 4 weeks regarding this burial, and any queries regarding an actual date should be addressed to the District Officer, District Office, N.T.A. Tennant Creek N.T. 5760. 2.11.1972 Information Form Death Deceased Name Marlene .........

It would be helpful to ascertain whether the Davey stated to be the father of Johnny's wives Christine and May, is the same person as Davey Guladgunu (Jagamara / Warramunga) who died in Tennant Creek, 28. 2.1961. His wife was Winnie Manangali (1933), now at Banka Banka as wife of Dayday Frank. On winnie's record is son, Wally Nguluruma (1. 3.1945) and a Dick (no DOB). Similar notations are on the deceased Davey. You have given a Dick and Wally as brothers to May and Christine. If Shorty Dick is the Dick above, he would not be the son of Winnie as his DOB is 1929, but perhaps Davey (1897) was his father. However, Christine and May cannot be traced to date and do not appear on any census material of Banka or Helen Springs. You have given the name of Jean (consorts Roderick -deceased, and Lauder) as the daughter of Christine. This person is Jean Frank, daughter of Linda Judabamunya (1915) and Frank (deceased 1955). This is confirmed by Social Service records also. Therefore, is there another Jean or has Christine been quoted as her mother in error. Mavis has been identified following provision of the additional information from you, but there is no record of the child, Phyllis, or any children at all. Has Phyllis been known by any other name, and has Mavis had any other consort. It has been noted that you gave her Aboriginal name as Mirigilgarim which was the name of Roderick, Jean's first consort. May, Johnny's third wife, remains unidentified. The only other person appearing on census and Apr records for the area, is May with child Lucy (28. 4.1972), who was the subject of a previous query to your office. It is possible May had another consort before the deceased Johnny, but without further investigation we are unable to identify all persons linked with Johnny. In addition to death registration, we have had referred to us a claim for Widow's pension on behalf of Christine, and we request your early attention to the above. 1.11.1972 From Child and Social Welfare Grafton to Welfare Tennant Creek Re Mrs Violet May Skinner (deceased) Thank you for your letter of 26th October 1972. Upon receipt of your letter Mr Skinner was contacted and informed me that he had made private arrangements with relatives to have his wife buried. He had forwarded $80.00 for funeral expenses he also stated that any local enquiries could be made by contacting Mrs Amy Pentland, Hardock St, Tennant Creek. I was completely unaware of these arrangements being made and any inconvenience to you is regretted. 15.11.1972 From Welfare Tennant Creek to Welfare Darwin Re Death Johnny 6. 8.1972 Tennant Creek 1. Davey Guladguna - Jagamara - Warramunga who died in Tennant Creek on 28. 2.1961 is the same Davey who was the father of Christine Nabarula May Wally Nguluruma (ROW p69) Shorty Dick (ROW p67) Davey was married to another wife who died before he married Winnie. Winnie was foster mother to Wally and Shorty Dick. 2. Jean Nabangardi. (consorts (1) Roderick (deceased), (2) Lauder). Jean is the daughter of Christine and Johnny (deceased). Jean Frank is the daughter of Linda Judabamunya and Frank (deceased 1955) is living in Tennant Creek and is legally married to a European. (Jean Frank was never tribally married). 3. Phyllis Nabangardi. (Daughter of Mavis Nabarula and Johnny (deceased). Phyllis has never been known by any other name and she is the only child. The name Mirigilgari was given to Phyllis and Jean as Surname by the Bookkeeper at Banka Banka and they both have a Savings Account in that name with the A.N.Z. Bank Tennant Creek. 4. Mavis Nabarula has no previous consorts. 5. May Nabarula is a full sister to Christine Nabarula. May had no previous consorts and has no children. May Nabarula is not the May appearing on your records as May with child Lucy (28.11.1972) who lives at Helen Springs Station. 6. All these persons linked with Johnny (deceased) always lived behind Banka Banka Homestead, over the hill, and as Mrs Ward (the previous owner of Banka Banka) did not anyone other than Aborigines to visit the camp, it is possible that they have not been recorded on any census. 11.12.1972 Telegram to Warrabri and Wave Hill Please advise relatives Banjo Patterson died today.

Awaiting further details. 6. 6.1974 From Warrabri Township to Aboriginal Affairs Alice Springs Report on Death of Charlie Rex. At approximately 1000 hours Mr Steve Kovacs of Wycliffe Well, arrived at Warrabri with Charlie Rex. He was directed to take him to the Hospital where Rex died at 1020 hours, 3rd May. It is believed that Rex in the company of several others, namely:- Angus Williams, Victor Williams, John Charlie, Donald McDonald, Mick Nelson, Colin Shannon and Ti-tree Paddy camped in the vicinity of Wycliffe Well from the evening of 31st May until the morning of the 3rd June. On the Saturday 1st June, after consuming liquor, a fight broke out between the deceased, Victor Williams, Angus Williams and John Charlie; the others present did not intervene. On the Sunday Rex complained of pains, but no notice was taken and it is possible another fight took place. On Monday 3rd May Mr Kovacs was informed of Rex's condition, and he brought him over to Warrabri. The Village Council tried to assist Police in apprehending Angus Williams, Victor Williams and John Charlie for the purpose of questioning. Mr Toby White, who on tribal matters should deal with the deceased antagonists, said that he would leave the matter in the hands of the Police. On Tuesday 4th June it was reported that a post mortem had revealed that Rex had died of pneumonia. When the Council was informed of this, they appeared sceptical as there was talk of a 'poisoned boomerang' being used. The people concerned asked if Rex's hair could be returned for rites. They also requested that the body be returned to Warrabri for a Christian burial as soon as possible.

This person was a very large man, a very light half-caste in complexion with grey eyes. The emphasis was very much laid on the fact that he had grey eyes. When last within this area Clarefield Percival Mosley was with Bullen Bros Circus, this was sometime before 1965. They have not heard from him or of him since he left the area in 1964 and was going to New Zealand with the Circus. The Bell Boxing Troupe was known to the Mosleys and there- for it is quite possible that Clarefield Percival could have joined that troupe on one of the northern itineraries. Further enquiries were made and a Mrs Marnie? Mason supplied the information that Clarefield Percival Mosley was the adopted son of the late Percival Mosley. His natural mother was Mabel Dungay who had him at Port Macquarie. Subsequently I have verified registration of birth with the C.P.S. Port Macquarie and on 23. 3.1931 Mabel Dungay gave birth to a male infant registered at C.P.S. Port Macquarie as Clarefield Dungay. This registration is No 171/31 at Port Macquarie. The man's nick-name was 'Terpy' in this area. It is said that he attended the Burnt Bridge Public School for his schooling, however no wife is known and as far as it is known in this area, there is no issue belonging to him. The person known as Mabel Dungay was later married and was Mrs Pat Calligan. She has since separated from Patrick Calligan. A request for a recent address for this woman was made and I have since been given her address as 91 Buckingham Street, Alexandria. This could be Great Buckingham Street, Alexandria NSW. As Mrs Pat Calligan is quite likely known by some other name in that area, perhaps further enquiries could be made of her, if it is your desire to contact her, through Aboriginal Medical Service, per Mrs Shirley Smith, Redfern Sydney. Hoping that this will be of some assistance to you. 27. 5.1974 Telegram to Manager Barkly Downs Station via Mt Isa Please forward any endowment cheques for Joan (?John) Morton to Avon Downs. 21. 5.1974 Telegram from Alice Springs to Tennant Creek No relatives will be attending funeral of baby whose mother is Joy Henderson. 1.10.1974 Telegram from Aboriginal Affairs Katherine to Tennant Creek Request details re William Lee deceased 19. 9.1974 aged 36 years who was residing at Pine Creek. 1.10.1974 Telegram from Tennant Creek to Katherine Cannot help on your information William Lee.
