    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.
