|3178||1881||Jacob Crow had settled in Duffers Gully||Mr Crow had settled in Duffers Gully and was earning a living as a gold miner. About this time he wrote a letter to his wife, Jane Crow in Cumberland and organised for her and the children to join him in Duffers Gully. Dwelling #494 where he was living was too small for the whole family so he built a new, larger, more substantial house. This was dwelling #346, which was constructed close to dwelling #301.|
|3180||1881||General note.||The Crow family lived in both dwellings #301 and #346. Issac Leavens may have lived in #301. On his arrival in Duffers Gully, Isaac Leavens planted a vegetable garden with the seeds that he had brought from his garden in Cumberland. He then set about constructing a good track into Duffers for a spring cart. Jane boiled up docks and nettles for vegetables. The Parcell family became close friends with the Crow family. Jane Crow acted as the midwife when Mary Parcell gave birth to her last two children. They were the twin girls, Ida and Ada, who were born in August 1884.|
