Trove Tuesday - A maintenance suit at the Cross Keys Hotel

The Kelly family in this story had no connection to the original Morgan's and associated Kelly families of the Cross Keys Hotel. 

Margaret Morgan, widow of John Felix Morgan; daughter in law of Alice Morgan did still own the hotel in 1922.

Trove Tuesday - Land and Hulme families of Oxley

I found my maternal great great grandparents, Joseph Hulme and Anna Dorothea nee Bartsh in 1903 in the Victorian electoral roll. He was listed as a farmer at Horseshoe, Oxley. Joseph's parents were Hepzibah nee Land and William Clough/Cluff Hulme.

Joseph was living with his maternal grandparents, Joseph Land and Mary nee Bush in 1851.  He came to Australia at the age of seventeen in 1860 with his maternal Uncle, Arthur Land on the ship "Kent".

In a Trove search for "Horshoe+Oxley" I found the following article about Arthur's brother John Land:  Arthur and John were the younger brothers of Hepzibah Land, my 3 x great grandmother who married William Clough/Cluff Hulme.
