PIONEERS GRAVES - NASS BRIDGE

Continuing on with my fascination for old cemeteries are these clippings from 72 years ago in 1939. What I found interesting, apart from the articles relating to burials 70 years prior to publication, is the reference to Jewish pioneers in the district circa 1870.

The first clipping listed the graves as unknown and the second four days later reported the graves owners as  Emanuelson's (workers) from Cuppacumbalong. The articles have also sparked an interest in me to discover more about the cemetery at Tharwa (heritage register pdf).
