  • Notes 
    • "In 1851 when Delilah was only four years old, her mother died and a short time afterwards Delilah also passed away. Rachel was the first person to die in the Falkland Ridge and Delilah the second. As there was no cemetery in the settlement at the time, they were taken to Springfield for burial. When Mrs. Fry died, a bier was made and she was carried by four men, while at intervals four others relieved them. She was buried in the old cemetery at Springfield, on the north side of the present Baptist Church, but no marker or trace remains of the early interments in that portion of ground ".
