    After 50 years of pioneer work in the Toowoomba district of Queensland, Mrs. J. Brennan, of Reedy Creek, Cabarlah, passed peacefully away, at the ripe age of 77. Born in Drumkeen, County Donegal, Ireland, she emigrated to Queensland in the ship Golconda 53 years ago, and duly arrived in Moreton Bay. She went to Toowoomba shortly after her arrival, and there Jane Connolly met her future husband, the late John Brennan. Land settlement at the time was opened up in the Cabarlah district, then known as Reedy Creek. There the happy couple decided to work out their fortunes. John Brennan became the original founder of the Highfields State School. A fatal riding accident left Mrs. Brennan a widow with a family of eight little ones. The struggle was a keen fight against adverse conditions which many a man to day would shirk. She carried on mixed farming and dairying, and her industry and perseverance were rewarded with a comfortable home and healthy children. Apart from her duties, she had time to attend to her neighbours' troubles, and her cheerful smile and generous helping hand brought comfort to many. The family are well known throughout Queensland. They are: Martin Joseph Brennan (sergeant of police, Charters Towers), Nicholas Peter Brennan (Blackbutt), Mrs. J. W. E. Ryan (police station, Goolagong, N.S.W.), James Aloysius Brennan (Dandarah, Biggenden), and Thomas Liguori Brennan (Cabarlah). Three children predeceased their mother, viz., Pat rick, Elizabeth and John. There are six grandchildren. Her remains were interred beside those of her husband, in the Highfields Cemetery, before a large attendance of mourners. The ceremonies at the grave were conducted by Rev. Father Carlton, who also, with Rev. Father O 'Gorman, attended to the deceased's spiritual welfare. — R.I.P. "
