Trove Tuesday: Burial in the Bush

I did have a different item prepared for today – an article containing a lovely sketch of one of my forebears – however, during one of my general surname searches I came across this essay.

ESSAYS, SKETCHES, &c. (1886, November 20). Goulburn Herald (NSW : 1881 – 1907), p. 6. Retrieved September 30, 2013, from

Mr & Mrs Robert Muffet are my 3x great-grandparents, their eldest son Charles and his wife Mary Matilda (nee Reader), referred to in the article as Mrs Charles Muffet are my 2x great-grandparents. The funeral is that of their daughter Eliza.

There is a published tree of the descendants of [Charles] Robert Muffett & Louisa Muffett [nee Green], a copy of which originally helped to feed my love of family history (I’m on page 72). No mention of Eliza’s disability is mentioned. I wonder if it was not known or just conveniently forgot?
