Primary events

Secondary circumstances

  • Anecdote: Aunt Julia I don't remember much of Dolf Inches who married her came from the Huon where his people built boats of the famous Huon pine.
    There were still some in Auckland a while back. He built the Methodist parsonage quite close to Kemble. I remember him calling on Julia and going to sleep by the fire. They went to Echuca (not sure of the spelling) where he built boats for the river traffic. These were constructed of very light draught and guaranteed to go anywhere so long as there was a heavy dew.4
  • Married Name: Her married name was Inches.
Her life was recorded thus ~~ Julia Mary CATO was born on 28 June 1859 at New Town, Hobart and was the third daughter of William and Rosetta CATO.
