William Holley1

M, b. 1814, d. 26 May 1890

William A Holley - Tenterfield Pioneers honoured in Rotary Park, Tenterfield. The plaque suggests he arrived in 1838
  • William Holley was born in 1814. He was the son of Jacob Holley and Charlotte.1
  • At the age of 33 years, William Holley married Catherine A Arthur in 1847 in St Peter's Church of England, Armidale, New South Wales.1,2
  • In 1872 his name appeared in Greville's Post Office Directory. He was a carrier. The name was spelt HOLLY.3
  • On 9 September 1879 the Maitland Mercury reported: A casualty of a very serious character, and entailing heavy loss, occurred last Wednesday week to Mr. William Holly, carrier, of the Four-Mile, near Tenterfield. It appears that Mr. Holly was engaged by Mr. C. A. Lee, storekeeper, to take a load of general store goods for one of his constituents in the Western district, with which he left here with a team of sixteen bullocks. On arriving at the Sovereign River, near Mongoola, it was found to be in a very swollen condition, in consequence of the recent rains. Holly, however, attempted to cross (although at the most favourable time it is not a good crossing), when the force of the current carried the bullocks off their legs, and twelve of the animals were drowned before the pole could be cut and the team released. The dray was, we understand, pulled out of the river with, great difficulty by some teams who were be- hind, but some of the goods were a good deal damaged. Mr. Holly's loss is a very heavy one, and much sympathy ís felt for him under
    the circumstances." The article did not specify if the owner of the dray was Mr Holley, junior or senior.4
  • William Holley died on 26 May 1890 in Tenterfield, New South Wales.5
  • He was buried in Tenterfield Cemetery. The headstone inscription states he was 76 years old.

    IRA S. BAWKER
    With the love of nature that distinguishes the true husbandman, Ira S. Bawker, of Inyankara, Wyoming, has turned his back upon the allurements of mercantile life, for which he was specially prepared, devoting himself to the peaceful and productive pursuits of agriculture, in which the man of industry and thrift sees the fruits of his labor blooming and ripening around him, refreshing the landscape with their beauty and gladdening the heart with the promise of substantial comfort. Mr. Bawker is a native of Jo Daviess county, Ill., where he was born on July 12. 1868, the son of James T. and Catherine ( Bricklcr) Bawker, an account of whose career is to be found elsewhere in this volume. Ira began his scholastic training in the schools of Illinois, continued it in those of Kansas, where the family lived for a time, and completed it at Sundance, Wyo., after the home was established in that neighborhood. After completing the course, he returned to his native state and attended an excellent commercial college in Dixon, for the purpose of fitting himself for business. Instead of mercantile life, however, he joined the great army of agriculturists in Wyoming, working for his father on his ranch, and also on land of his own, which he took up adjacent to that of his father. In 1895, with his father, he bought the ranch on Skull Creek, twenty-five miles northwest of Newcastle, on which he has lived since his marriage in 1898. This he has greatly improved, having there built up a thriving industry in cattle raising and general farming. In the ranch there are 480 acres, and he has also control of a large body of leased land. His residence is an attractive cottage, which he has built and furnished with due consideration for the comfort and pleasure of its inmates, and his cattle are housed in good sheds and fed from the capacious stacks with which the place is supplied. On January 4, 1897, at the home of the bride's parents on Skull Creek, Mr. Bawker was married to Miss Laura J. Holwell, a native of Nova Scotia, and a daughter of William and Margaret E. (Beaglehole) Holwell. Her father was born in England and her mother in New Jersey. Mr. Holwell came west in 1878, locating a little later, in Wyoming, and taking up his residence in 1881 on Skull Creek, where his family joined him in 1883, and is one of the successful and prominent cattlemen of the section. Mr. and Mrs. Bawker have one child. Edgar I. The head of the house is a Democrat in politics, steadfastly adhering to his party in all issues involving real government principles.4
