    • Obituary: 25 Jun 1927, Brisbane, Qld; THE LATE MRS. ELIZABETH BLEAKLEY. By the death of Mrs. Elizabeth Bleak- ley on June 25, at her late residence, Lade-street, Gaythorne, another of the pioneers who helped to build Australia, and extend the British Empire, has vanished. Mrs. Bleakley was the eldest daughter of the late George Montgomery, of County Cavan, Ireland, and came to Australia with her husband and child in the year 1860, and went at once to the bush. Her husband, Mr. Andrew Bleak- ley, who passed away 28 years ago, was a scholar and historian who took a keen interest in the politics and other questions of the time. In the early days of their pioneer life far from any school, Mr. Bleakley gave his evenings, after a heavy day's work, to teaching his children, and children of neighbours, and on Sundays held a Sunday School and Bible class, and Church services open to all who could attend. These intrepid pioneers went first to Waraba (off the North Coast Line), and after returning to Brisbane for a short time finally settled at Upper Caboolture in 1877. Quite a host of people remember how welcome visitors were at Brookvale, where open house was kept, and merry parties of young people gathered. The old home is now the residence of Mr. Basil Bleak- ley. When land was first thrown open to selection in this district, many Bavarian Missionaries were among the first settlers. This, of course, was long be- fore the day of railways, the travelling being by pack horse, or wagon, and communication with Brisbane took the settlers three days going and three days, returning with their household stores and goods. There was also communica- tion by sea, which entailed long drives on rough roads. The late Mrs. Bleakley, who was in her 89th year, is survived by six daughters and six sons. The daugh- ters are: Mrs. M. J. Franz, Hendra (widow of Mr. W. Franz, who was also a pioneer of Stony Creek), Mrs. A. R. Findlay (Enoggera); Mrs. J. P. Davies (West End); Misses Adela, Mary, and Olivia Bleakley. The sons are Messrs. William, Andrew, Arthur, John, Basil, and Cle- ment Bleakley, five of whom are married and with one exception are all engaged in dairying or grazing pursuits. Mrs. Bleakley had a brother who served in the Crimean war, also five grandsons in the Great War, four of whom paid the supreme sacrifice. Her sister, widow of the late T. P. Pugh, Police Magistrate, resides at the home of her son-in-law, Rev. S. W. Bath, Ipswich, and her other sister, the late Mrs. G. P. Merry, of Toowoomba, predeceased her some years ago. There was a large attendance of friends and relatives to pay their last tribute at the funeral of Mrs. Bleakley, and many beau- tiful floral tributes were received.
