    Notes 
    • After William died in Corack in 1890, Eliza married William Bruce at Watchem in Victoria on 7 November 1894. The wedding was reported in the 'Donald Express' as follows:
      'A large number of guests gathered at the residence of Mrs Free at Watchem on Wednesday for the celebration of her marriage to William Bruce, a well known resident of the Watchem and Massey districts. The Rev EOKnee of Donald, was the celebrant, and carried out his part of the contract to the satisfaction of all concerned. The day was beautifully fine, and the guests numerous and merry - so that all "went merry as a marriage bell". After the usual toasts and games, the happy couple left for home amid showers of rice and old boots, and the good wishes of relatives and friends'.
