    Hi, I'm in the process of completing our family tree! Wellow farm has now come up within the line. Can you tell if you have 2 grave sites on the property? They would be Elizabeth Carpenter and Henry Baldwin.

    Louise,. I have only recently come across these comments.
    I am a descendant of Elizabeth Carpenter / Rayner /Baldwin and have a lot of family tree information that I have been researching for several years, all from different sources.
    if you are still interested in any of the rather intriguing history surrounding Elizabeth Carpenter, Israel Rayner, Henry Baldwin, and Wellow farm etc, I would be happy to forward what I have.
    I have also looked at the Australian Horse Drawn Services website, which I think is Amazing.
    Kind regards Kerry Finch

    Hi Louise, My name is Peter Behnke and my cousin and I have been looking at our ancestory (Barnsley family) and I have discovered that one ancestor Henry Baldwin owned your property and was buried there in 1843.
    Apparentley he was buried in a crypt he built for his wife Catherine but it was subsequently washed away by floods many years ago.
    I would love to see the property if we could arrange it with you.
    In the meantime I will endeavour to find out more about Henry Baldwins time there.
    Kind regards,

    Apparently the location of these graves is a mystery. Henry built a cript for his beloved Catherine but it has been destroyed by floods many years ago.

    Louise, There is an article about Henry Baldwin in Hawkesbury Historical Society's journal Hawkesbury Personalities, on sale at the museum. Jan Barkley-Jack also mentions the Baldwins in her book about early Hawkesbury. I am Secretary of Colo Shire Family History Group and we would be interested in speaking to you as old Colo Shire covered almost everywhere on your side of river. Regards, Carol.
