  • Eliza Case made the wedding dress for the marriage of Mary Agnes Ryan and Charles Augustine McGeever on 4 July 1900 in St Patrick's Church, Toowoomba, Queensland. The Warwick Argus reported the marriage:- " McGEEVER-RYAN.-A ceremony which has aroused much interest and expectation for some time past was celebrated in St. Patrick's R.C. Church, Toowoomba, on Wednesday, July 4th (says the Chronicle), when Miss Mary Ryan, only daughter of Mrs. T. Ryan, of Ravensbourne, was married to Mr. Charles A. McGeever, third son of Mr. Henry M'Geever, of Emu Vale, Warwick. The bride, who was attended by two bridesmaids, Miss B. M'Quillan (chief) and Miss Bishop, cousins of the bride, was given away by her brother (Mr. J. Ryan). Mr. D. M'Geever, brother of the bridegroom, acted as best man, and Mr. J. M'Geever as groomsman. The bride appeared to very great advantage in a beautiful dress of cream satin, trimmed with silk braid, chiffon and orange blossoms. She also wore a very becoming hat trimmed with cream silk and ostrich tips, and carried a beautiful bouquet. The bridesmaids wore becoming costumes of pale blue cashmere trimmed with cream silk and chiffon with hats to match. They also wore gold bar brooches presented by the bridegroom. The bride's dresses were designed and made by Miss Case, and reflected great credit on her artistic skill. After the newly-wedded pair had received the congratulation of their friends, the company partook of a sumptuous breakfast, which was served in Mr. Laracy's Harp Of Erin Hotel.3

  • In 1901 Eliza's name appeared on the Crow's Nest Post Office register. She lived at Ravensbourne and was a dressmaker.4

  • At some stage Eliza Case sold her selection to Friedrich Reushle. Fred expanded his holding by purchasing land from other selectors : Edward Ballantyne, Edward Mowen and Eliza Case. In 1916 Fred made a trial planting of citrus trees, their success leading to a planation of over 300 lemon, navel and valencia oranges and mandarines.6

  • Conditional approval for John Case's selection of landwas given on 24 November 1888. He selected 62 acres of land at Ravensboune. "For the agricultural township farms adjoining the village of Ravensbourne there was great competition, many of the portions being applied for from four to ten times over. The ballot had to be resorted to in no less than 50 cases; this, with the refunding of the amounts paid by the unsuccessful applicants, necessarily occupied  a deal of time, and it was not till half-past 6 O'clock that the business was concluded, and the court closed. By 7 o'clock the whole of the refundments had been paid over to 115 applicants. The 76 portions adjoining the village of Ravensbourne, granted at the land court, were  apportioned among 62 selectors, so there is every probability of the village settlement of Ravensbourne proving a success. The total area granted at the court was 5025 acres among 68 applicants."3

William Joseph Case1

M, b. 1842, d. 21 October 1926
  • William Joseph Case was born in 1842. He was the son of Joseph Case and Susan Ann Carey.1,2,3
  • At the age of 26 years, William Joseph Case married Mary Davies in 1868 in Queensland.1,4
  • William Joseph Case was a witness at the trial of David Kynoch on 29 July 1869; David's trial for cattle stealing continued as reported by The Darling Downs Gazette :- " The Court reassembled at ten o'clock sharp, and the jury appeared in very satisfactory health, after their nights confinement. The trial of David Kynoch, for cattle-stealing at Highfields, was resumed, and there was the same general interest displayed in the case as on the preceding day. John Elliot Barry, the detective constable who arrested the prisoner, was examined by the Crown Prosecutor, but there was no variation in evidence given on the day of committal, in cross examination by Mr. Baird, the witness said he remembered stopping on the road to have something to eat and drink; he looked at the brands on the cattle, and there was a general conversation on the journey to Toowoomba ; could not remember William Merritt saying anything about old brands. James Murphy, proprietor of Crow's Nest and Perseverance stations, said the prisoner was in his employment for eighteen months : had seen the red steer outside the Court three weeks ago last Sunday in a paddock called ' Kynoch's paddock ;' it was then fresh cut, and branded C over WA on the off side ; several other calves were running in the pad dock ; saw the prisoner subsequently, and said to him, ' I have been to your paddock and seen a number of calves there — to whom do they belong ;' he replied, 'They are mine ;" prisoner was residing at Reedy Creek previous to coming to Perseverance ; he brought one cow and calf and a team of working bullocks with him ; he (witness) was accustomed to go over the Perseverance country nearly every week, but had seen no other cattle of the CWA brand ( the three calves were not the produce of one cow. Cross-examined by Mr. Baird : The prisoner has seven children; the eldest child is Catherine, who is about sixteen years of age, and the oldest boy is about thirteen years of age ; they are accustomed to knock about among cattle, but I do not consider them old enough to deal in cattle ; the country about Perseverance is very mountainous ; had no occasion to suspect the character of the prisoner until the calves were claimed by Mr. Merritt. William Case said he was a farmer residing at Highfields, and a neighbour of Merritt's ; he had seen the three calves outside the Court, and knew them to be the property of Mr. Merritt ; could not swear to the red heifer or the red and white heifer, but could swear positively to the red steer ; it was calved in his (witness') paddock about eight or nine months ago ; had been in the habit of seeing it frequently during that, time, and knew it to be Mr. Merritt's property ; went to Cameron's paddock in company with Alfred Merritt about three weeks ago ; saw the red steer running among the cattle in the paddock. Cross-examined by Mr. Baird : I cannot tell the reason why I was not examined before the magistrates; I was first (spoken to about this case on Monday last ; I knew the steer to be Merritt's property when I went to Cameron's paddock with Alfred Merritt. ' This concluded the case for the Crown. John Barker said he was a naturalist, residing at Highfields ; remembered Merritt coming to his house on the 13th July ; he (witness) was then arrested on the charge of stealing the three calves outside the Court ; they were the same cattle which Kynoch and his two children were charged with stealing ; was present when the calves were driven into the yard at Cameron's paddock; Detective Barry said to the Messrs. Merritt, 'Give a good look for the old brand,' and they said they could not see it; on the way to Toowoomba, William Merritt said, 'It is strange we could not see the old brand, as I am positive she was branded, but she was very young at the time;' remembered stopping on the road to Toowoomba ; Barry said, ' Steady the cattle, I want to see the old brand if possible ;' he (witness) had known prisoner about three, years, and knew him to be possessed of cows, calves, and other cattle. Cross-examined by Mr. Paul : The calves were taken from a paddock belonging to Cameron, but which is in my charge ; the whole of the calves were brought into the yard ; I did not assist in the search for the brands ; Messrs. Merritt and Barry went direct to the red heifer to search for the old brand ; I was then in custody ; knew prisoner had cattle two or three year ago ; they ran in his own paddock at Highfields ; he had then about forty or fifty head, one of his brands was DK ; the cattle were turned out when he went to Perseverance. S. J. Marshall said he was a stockman at Stone- henge about eighteen miles from Perseverance, and had been staying at Crow's Nest station for some time past; he assisted Mr. Murphy in mustering his cattle ; the Perseverance country is very mountainous, and there was great difficulty experienced in finding the cattle ; saw some cattle on the 9th of July which prisoner said were his property ; there was a spotted cow with calf at foot, three other cows, and a white heifer thirteen months old, un bonded. Cross-examined by Mr. Paul : Mr. Murphy was at Perseverance when prisoner claimed the spotted cow and calf, but I do not believe he heard the prisoner say they were his own property; I should know milkers calves of eight or nine months old, even if I had lost sight of them for four or five weeks, that is if I had been working among the cattle or milking the cows. John Henry said he had never had dealings in cattle with prisoner, or his wife, but believed his wife bad purchased cattle of prisoner's wife previous to their marriage — the first time about 1864; the cattle were branded C over WA; had seen the calves outside the Court, but could not say whether the brands were the same as were on the cattle he mentioned as having been purchased from prisoner's wife by his (witness') wife the letters were the same; he knew nothing of the purchase beyond what his wife told him. . ' By Mr. Paul: I was not married at the time of purchase. John Curtis, farmer, had seen the calves outside the Court, and should take the light red heifer to be over eighteen months old, the red bull calf twelve months or over, and the the and white heifer eleven or twelve months old; had been acquainted with prisoner's wife for about eleven years, and knew her to have cattle, some of which were branded C over WA on milking side ; could not say whether the same brands were on the cattle out-side. By Mr. Pant: I have been in Court and heard the evidence during the trial ; knew prisoner before he Married Mrs. Ambrose ; it is about ten years since I saw the cattle mentioned ; I should say the cattle outside the Court have been branded six weeks or two months ; I never saw a beast shelling the top of her horns under eighteen months old. Timothy Gleeson said he knew that prisoner's wife possessed cattle twelve years ago - perhaps 40 head ; they were branded similar to the calve, outside the, Court, C over WA off side; on the 12th May last, saw two cows and calves at Meringandan, which he believed were the property of the prisoner should say the yellow heifer calf in dispute was about eighteen months old, and the other two calves not twelve months. Samuel McCall, carrier, knew prisoner had been in possession of cattle branded C over WA and CA ; had seen the cattle outside the Court, and should say the bull calf was twelve months old, the red and white heifer ten months, and the yellow heifer eighteen months. After the jury had been addressed by Mr. Baird and Mr. Paul, His Honour summed up at some length, and, in charging the jury, said there would probably be some difficulty as to the question of identity, and they would have to carefully weigh the evidence of the witnesses, and find out, if possible, which were the most reliable, and whether men who had been constantly in the habit of seeing the calves would be most likely to know the ages of the beasts, or those who, ignorant of their attendance being required, had merely had a passing glance and given an opinion. The jury retired for about twenty minutes, and brought in a verdict of guilty on the second charge, with a recommendation to mercy. His Honour, in passing sentence, remarked that, for crimes such as the prisoner bad been guilty of, corporal punishment had again been resorted to in England, and had he (prisoner) been a younger man, this treatment, in addition to imprisonment, would very likely have been inflicted. By his act, the prisoner had laid himself open to much heavier punishment than he intended indicting on him ; and although the sentence would not be the heaviest, still it must be a heavy one, for if such crimes were not put a stop to, farmers might as well give up their occupation altogether. His Honour, in addition to further remarks, severely reprimanded the prisoner for the manner in which he had trained his children. The sentence, of the Court was that prisoner is kept in penal servitude for the term of three years.
