William Cree arrived in New York, USA, on 7 April 1849. He was a workman aged 22 and had sailed from Belfast on board the Annie.2

William Cree married Mary Cronin, daughter of Patrick Cronin and Catherine Sullivan, before 1857 in San Francisco, California, USA. It is not know how or why Mary travelled from Australia to California. No record of the marriage has yet been found.3,4

William Cree and Mary Cronin arrived in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, on 7 September 1857. They had boarded the Formosa in San Francisco. Mary was listed only as "Mrs Cree." Her age was shown as 35.5

From c 1859 William Cree and Mary Cronin were living in Green Hills Farm, Taralga, New South Wales, Australia, where they brought up their children Sarah J Cree, Catherine Cree and William James Cree.6,7

A registered letter addressed to Wm. Cree, Goulburn, was amongst mail and banknotes stolen from a mailbag between Albury and Yass some time before 15th August 1859. This is the earliest date on record showing William Cree in the Taralga area.8

His daughter Sarah J Cree was born in 1861 in Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia.9

His father James Cree died on 12 February 1880 in Newtownards Reg Dist, Ireland.12 William Cree was a Presbyterian.13

William Cree died on 15 December 1882 in Goulburn, New South Wales. His death resulted from a fall from his horse on 11th December 1882 on his way home from Taralga to Green Hills. Apparently William was riding into Taralga to vote in an election, witnesses claim that he had been riding too fast which is why he fell off.14,15,16,17 He was buried in Stonequarry Cemetery, Golspie Road, Taralga, New South Wales, Australia.13

The farm was subdivided at some stage and the larger portion is still called Green Hills. The house and its surrounds are about 30 acres and don't have the farm name connected to them any more. I've attached a photo of the house. I've been quite interested in it all my life. When I was younger it had become a ruin and was only the stone walls and the roof. The house was restored structurally in the mid 90's and had electricity connected. People had lived in it on and off and it's now been empty for about a year. I've spoken to an architect who dates it as being built around 1890. The stonework is of a very high quality: most houses in the area are made from basalt collected from paddocks whereas this one is dressed sandstone. This would have been carted in from a quarry a few kilometres away. The original kitchen is still intact and has a wood stove in it."

    Obituary.- I have to chronicle the death of our lamented and much-respected resident, William Cree, aged fifty-five years. As will be remembered, he had a severe fall from his horse on his way home from Taralga on the 11th, which resulted in his death in Goulburn on the 15th instant. He was buried yesterday in the Presbyterian cemetery at Stonequarry Creek, and was followed to his last resting-place by very large numbers of persons. It was, I believe, one of the largest funerals that ever took place here. The late Mr. Cree settled on his own freehold, Green Hills, near Taralga, about twenty-two years ago, and earned for himself the esteem of all persons who came in contact with him. He was very upright in all his transactions. He was very firm in what he believed to be right, and to discountenance every bad act. He leaves a widow and two daughters and one son, the youngest eight years old, well provided for. He was a good husband and a kind father, which will deepen their sorrow at their bereavement. I can truly say the void he has caused in this part will not be easily filled.

Mary Cronin was born in 1830 or 1831 in County Cork, Ireland.1,2,3 She was the daughter of Patrick Cronin and Catherine Sullivan.

Mary Cronin arrived in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, on 14 February 1842 with Patrick Cronin and Catherine Sullivan. They had sailed on board the Sir Edward Paget from Cork, Ireland. Patrick was an agricultural labourer from Dromcolliher, Co. Limerick, and Catherine was a dairywoman from Co. Cork. They were migrating with their six children of whom Mary was the fourth, aged 11 and born in County Cork. The others were James, aged 15; John, 6; Sydney 14 days (later known as Daniel); and Joanna, 3.4

Mary Cronin married William Cree, son of James Cree and Sara Adair, before 1857 in San Francisco, California, USA. It is not know how or why Mary travelled from Australia to California. No record of the marriage has yet been found.5,6

Mary Cronin and William Cree arrived in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, on 7 September 1857. They had boarded the Formosa in San Francisco. Mary was listed only as "Mrs Cree." Her age was shown as 35.7

From c 1859 Mary Cronin and William Cree were living in Green Hills Farm, Taralga, New South Wales, Australia, where they brought up their children Sarah J Cree, Catherine Cree and William James Cree.8,9

Her daughter Sarah J Cree was born in 1861 in Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia.10

Her daughter Catherine Cree was born in 1868 in Goulburn, New South Wales.11

Her son William James Cree was born in 1874 in Goulburn, New South Wales.12

Her husband William Cree died on 15 December 1882 in Goulburn, New South Wales.13,14,15,16

In 1892 Mary Cronin was living in Green Hills, Taralga, New South Wales, Australia. The present house at Green Hills has been identified as having been built of dressed sandstone in about 1890. There are the remains of an earlier house in the backyard. Since William Cree died in 1882 and his only son, William James Cree, was born in 1874, it seems likely that it was Mary Cronin who had the house built as she has taken on her daughter Sarah's three young children. The house was renovated in the 1990s.17

Her daughter Sarah J Cree died on 14 October 1892 in Green Hills, Taralga, New South Wales.18,19,20

Mary Cronin died on 27 April 1906 in Green Hills, Taralga, New South Wales. She was aged 73. Her death is not shown in the NSW deaths index.1,21 She was buried on 28 April 1906 in Stonequarry Cemetery, Taralga, New South Wales, Australia. Although a Catholic, she was buried in the Presbyterian graveyard alongside her husband William Cree.1,22

I've attached a photo of the house. I've been quite interested in it all my life. When I was younger it had become a ruin and was only the stone walls and the roof. The house was restored structurally in the mid 90's and had electricity connected. People had lived in it on and off and it's now been empty for about a year. I've spoken to an architect who dates it as being built around 1890. The stonework is of a very high quality: most houses in the area are made from basalt collected from paddocks whereas this one is dressed sandstone. This would have been carted in from a quarry a few kilometres away. The original kitchen is still intact and has a wood stove in it."

Death.- Mrs.Cree, widow of the late Mr. William Cree, of Green Hills, Taralga, died suddenly at her residence on Friday morning at tIhe age of 73 years. Mrs. Cree was always a remarkably robust woman, and until recently had enjoyed good health. Some time ago, however, she sustained a heavy fall in passing from one room to another, and since then had not been so well as usual. Beyond complaining of a slight headache on retiring on Thursday night, she made no further mention of feeling unwell, and on Friday morning she was in the act of putting her boots on, when she fell back dead, apparently without a struggle, the cause of death being set down to rheumatic affection of the heart. A formal inquiry was held before Mr. Coroner Ross, when it was recorded that death was due to natural causes. Thie deceased lady came to the State about 54 or 55 years ago, and later she left and went to California, where she was married. Subsequently, in company with her husband, she came to this district and took up the land where they have since resided. There were three children of the marriage - Mrs. Hugh McNeilly, who died some years ago; Mr. William Cree, who resides at Green Hills; and Mrs. P. Elliott, of Bannaby. The death of Mrs. Cree will leave a gap, not easily filled, in her neighbourhood, as she was of a most kindhearted and charitable disposition, and always one of the first to help her neighbours or those needing assistance. The funeral took place on Saturday, being largely attended. The remains were interred in the Presbyterian cemetery at Stone-quarry beside those of her late husband. The Rev. J. D. Nicholson read the burial service."

(From our Correspondent) DEATH.- I regret to record another death in our district this week, viz., Mrs. Cree of Green Hills, Taralga, who died suddenly on Friday morning at the age of 73 years. Although suffering severely at times from rheumatic pains, Mrs. Cree was always a strong, healthy woman, and every day of her life almost she was up the first thing in the morning looking after her domestic affairs. Last winter, however, she got a heavy fall, and she never fully recovered from the injury and shock. The night before her death she retired to rest apparently in good health, complaining only of a slight headache, but on her room heing entered next morning she was found dead, having expired while putting her boots on, apparently without a struggle. A formal inquiry was held by Mr. Coroner Ross, when it was elicited that she had lately been treated for rheumatic affec- tion of the heart, and a finding of death from natural causes was returned.

    Some 54 or 55 years ago the deceased lady came from Ireland to this State, and after living here a few years she went to California, where she married her late husband, Mr. William Cree. They subsequently returned to this State and camne to this district, taking up the farm where Mr. Cree resided up to his death, and Mrs. Cree and her family since. There are two children of the marriage living - Mr. Williamn Cree, of Green Hills, and Mrs. P. Elliott, of Bannaby. The eldest daughter, Mrs. Hugh McNeilly, died some years ago. The de- ceased lady was a most estimable woman in every relation of life-a good living woman, kind, charitable to those needing assistance, and a genuine, good-hearted, neighborly woman. Her death will leave a gap in her neighbourhood not easily filled.

Sarah J Cree was brought up along with Catherine Cree and William James Cree at Green Hills Farm, Taralga, New South Wales, Australia, where her parents had lived from about c 1859.1,2 Sarah J Cree was born in 1861 in Goulburn, New South Wales, Australia.3 She was the daughter of William Cree and Mary Cronin.

Her father William Cree died on 15 December 1882 in Goulburn, New South Wales.4,5,6,7

Sarah J Cree married Hugh McNeilly, son of Hugh McNeilly and Ann Perry, on 7 October 1884 in Argyle, New South Wales, Australia.8,9

Her daughter Mary Alice McNeilly was born in 1885.9

Her son William Cree McNeilly was born in 1887.9

Her daughter Annie Maude McNeilly was born in 1889 in Taralga, New South Wales, Australia.10 Sarah J Cree was a presbyterian.11

Her daughter Katherine Isabelle McNeilly was born on 8 April 1892 in Taralga, New South Wales.12,9

Sarah J Cree died on 14 October 1892 in Green Hills, Taralga, New South Wales, Australia. She was aged 31 and shown as wife of Hugh. The cause of her death was given as heart disease.11,13,14 She was buried on 16 October 1892 in Stonequarry Cemetery, Taralga, New South Wales, Australia.15
Gravestone of Sarah Jane McNeilly (née Cree)
Administration of Sarah J Cree's estate was granted to Hugh McNeilly on 2 December 1892 in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. However in a case in the Equity Court in Sydney in 1905 it was stated that her widower Hugh M'Neilly (sic) was retaining the rents and profits of her estate for his own use. She had been the "registered proprietor of land at Taralgo worth £400, was entitled to a sum of £230 under the will of her father, William Cree, and had personality of the value of £111." It was argued on behalf of their children, who were in the care of her brother William James M'Cree (sic), that those profits should "be paid to William John M'Cree, their maternal uncle with whom they are living, in part payment of their education and maintenance." The outcome of the case is not yet known.

It wasn’t until 1915 that the public trustee advertised to sell the land owned by Sarah Jane.16,9,17

At some time after her death but not for some years, her children were being cared for by her brother William James Cree.18

  18. [S419] Website, His Side of the Story http://onhisside.wordpress.com/2013/10/19/…, On 14 October 1892, just six months after the birth of their youngest daughter Katherine, Sarah died suddenly at the young age of thirty one. Mary Alice would have been seven, Billy five, Annie three and Katherine still a baby. Hugh was left to raise four young children on his own which was not destined to work out according to a news report from 1905. According to the report Sarah Jane did not have a will and thus it would be a number of years before her estate was finalised. According to this report, Sarah’s death occurred in 1901, however, I’m hoping this is a misprint as she was buried in 1892 in Stone Quarry Cemetery, Taralga. In 1905, according to the news report, the children were being cared for by their maternal uncle William James Cree who was only eighteen at the time of Sarah’s death. I can’t imagine he would have taken the children into his care immediately after Sarah’s death as he was only eighteen at that time. But, it would have been very difficult for Hugh to care for the children on his own and I imagine that Sarah’s mother may have cared for them until William’s marriage to Margaret Quinn in 1900. This household would have been very busy as William and Margaret’s children arrived regularly: Bertha M b1901 d 1927; Evelyn b1903 d1916; William S b1905; Catherine b1907 d 1907; Alice Ellen b1909; Ann J b1911; possibly others born after the search date cut off 1913.
