They later sold the property and bought another that they named Leksand. It was also subsequently sold and they bought Danbury Park. They bred sheep for wool and meat and grew wheat. Gus managed Danbury Park after Charles died but it was heavily mortgaged and they could not make enough money to keep up the repayments during the Depression so the title was eventually handed back to the bank. Hylda moved to Swan Hill and, being a fabulous cook, opened a Café so she could support herself and the younger children. It is not known when she left Swan Hill; she was still living there during the war years. She appears to have gone to Sydney to live with Annie, her younger sister, for a few years before moving back to Melbourne to live with her daughter, Esta.

She came from Enniskillen, Fermanagh, was clean and healthy and was placed as an apprentice with Mr Robert Whitehead, Spring Creek, South Yarra at 8 pounds for 12 months.  Some of the information on Eliza came from "Barefoot and Pregnant" by Trevor McClaughlin. The introduction starts: "Between October 1848 and August 1850, over 4000 female orphans arrived in Australia from Irish workhouses as part of Earl Grey's pauper immigration scheme."   ~1855 - 1884 Margaret Hogan 29 29 1883 - 1981 Blanche Maud Jane Fox 98 98 ~1840 - 1890 Charles James Fox 50 50 The Fox family was very involved in horse racing.  Charles James Fox died at Flemington Racecourse after winning a large sum of money - he had a heart attack and was then robbed on the spot. ~1843 - 1901 Isabella Ivory 58 58 Ethel May Holman 1904 - 1959 James (Jim) Munro Hartnell 55 55 1902 - 1933 Arkley Jean Faircloth 30 30 1909 - 1995 Albert (Bert) Ernest Groom 86 86 1866 - 1931 Charles Fox 65 65 1869 - 1871 Isabella Fox 2 2 1871 - 1929 William Ivory Fox 58 58 1872 - 1953 James Thomas Fox 81 81 1874 - 1958 Frederick Ivory Fox 84 84 1876 - 1945 Ernest Ivory Fox 69 69 1881 - 1902 George Ivory Fox 21 21 D. 1907 Bridget Devitt Robert Patterson 1880 - 1913 Margaret Agnes Crichton 33 33 1885 - 1976 Margaret Elizabeth Cossens 91 91 Ran the Shamrock Hotel in Birchip.

Ross O'Donnell Ian O'Donnell Trevor O'Donnell Charles O'Donnell 1887 - 1929 Charles Joseph O'Donnell 42 42 Charles’s family had been farmers since his Irish grandparents arrived in Australia in 1841. Charles and Hilda started out on land near Geelong  and gradually moved north to the Birchip district.  They appear to have taken up land in different areas as new holdings were made available by the Government and there were more sons needing to make a living. When Andrew O’Donnell (Charles’s father) died, Birdsgrove, the family farm, was left to all the children. Charles took it over and paid out his brothers and sisters. Some of his brothers bought properties but it appears most of his siblings moved off the land.  Source: Ann Marie Yee (nee O'Donnell) 1885 - 1946 Andrew Patrick O'Donnell ? 61 61 Debi O'Donnell's notes suggest nickname "Alexander".  The AIF (http://www.aif.adfa.edu.au:8080/showPerson?pid=227299) records the following details for an Andrew O'Donnell

1878 - 1947 Francis (Frank) Martin O'Donnell 69 69 1880 - 1961 Mary (Dotty) Alice O'Donnell 81 81 1882 - 1942 Henrietta Elizabeth O'Donnell 60 60 Walter Reid has written that Henrietta "was known as Ettie and ran a boarding house named "Cheyne" in Ackland St, St Kilda, with her husband Mr Lord.  The O'Donnell family used to stay there when visiting Melbourne." 1802 - 1848 Martin O'Donnell 46 46 Shipping records indicate that Martin and Margaret arrived in Port Phillip on the Royal Saxon on 7/7/1841.  Martin and Margaret were bounty passengers which means the government paid a fee to the shipowner who brought them to Australia. Healthy, childless couples were preferred as bounty passengers and Martin and Margaret left their children behind when they set sail for Australia. Martin was nearly 40 when they came to Australia but they both put their age down as younger on the shipping records.  The shipping records indicate that the family came from Kilmacduane or Cooraclare in County Clare in Southern Ireland.  Thus, Martin was of the southern branch of O'Donnells, being O'Donnell Ui Maine, not the more numerous O'Donnell Ui Neil of the Donegal area and surrounds. Martin was killed in a horse riding accident at the Geelong races in 1848, and his tombstone is one of the oldest in the Geelong Eastern Cemetery.  The report of his death in the Maitland Mercury reads "The second day was marked by the violent death of Martin O'Donnell, a settler, who came by his death when riding round the course, by coming at full speed in violent contact with the limb of a tree, he fell, and in a few minutes breathed his last.  This unfortunate man has left a wife and nine young children to mourn his loss, three or four of whom hed been sent out to him in one of the last emigrant ships" 1839 - 1905 John O'Donnell 66 66 Arrived Port Phillip on 24 January 1848.  Joseph, Francis, Bridget and John were among the abandoned children that Caroline Chisholm arranged to bring to New South Wales in 1847. They were collected at Port Phillip by their father and taken to their home in (or near) Geelong. There is some information about this journey in Margaret Kiddle’s biography of Caroline Chisholm.  Deborah Jansons writes that John O'Donnells first wife Margaret (nee Hogan) died while giving birth. Evidently her funeral was quite large. Later John advertised in the local paper for a housekeeper whom he later married and with whom he had more children. Deborah writes that her "name was Mary Dinley (nee Milverton)".  1833 - 1911 Francis O'Donnell 78 78 Arrived Port Phillip on 24 January 1848.  Joseph, Francis, Bridget and John were among the abandoned children that Caroline Chisholm arranged to bring to New South Wales in 1847. They were collected at Port Phillip by their father and taken to their home in (or near) Geelong. There is some information about this journey in Margaret Kiddle’s biography of Caroline Chisholm. 1832 - 1907 Joseph O'Donnell 75 75 Arrived Port Phillip on 24 January 1848 . Left Australia shortly after his father’s death and joined Malachy in America.   Joseph, Francis, Bridget and John were among the abandoned children that Caroline Chisholm arranged to bring to New South Wales in 1847. They were collected at Port Phillip by their father and taken to their home in (or near) Geelong.  There is some information about this journey in Margaret Kiddle’s biography of Caroline Chisholm. 1835 - 1920 Bridget O'Donnell 85 85 Arrived Port Phillip on 24 January 1848.  Joseph, Francis, Bridget and John were among the abandoned children that Caroline Chisholm arranged to bring to New South Wales in 1847. They were collected at Port Phillip by their father and taken to their home in (or near) Geelong. There is some information about this journey in Margaret Kiddle’s biography of Caroline Chisholm. 1844 - 1892 Mary O'Donnell 48 48 1846 - 1894 Margaret O'Donnell 48 48 1912 - 1989 Gustav (Gus) Olav Charles Anders O'Donnell 77 77 1874 - 1879 Martin Francis O'Donnell 5 5 1876 Catherine (Kate) Mary O'Donnell Kate never married. 1877 - 1950 Malachy O'Donnell 73 73 Deborah Jansons writes that Malachy once worked in the Tivoli theatre with Lillie Langtry and raised his family in Colac before moving to Melbourne.  She also writes that Malachy left the land for Melbourne on the death of his father.. 1879 Margaret O'Donnell Birchip cemetery records list a Margaret Agnes O'Donnell buried 12/6/1913, age at death = 32, last place of residence = Birchip.  Not sure if this is the same Margaret O'Donnell. 1920 - 1968 Malachy (Max) John O'Donnell 48 48 Married Beryl. 1888 - 1974 John (JB) Bernard O'Donnell 86 86 From Australian War Memorial Records:

The 38th Battalion -  After training in both Australia and Britain, the 38th Battalion crossed to France in late November 1916. In February 1917 the 38th Battalion provided 400 troops, with a similar party from the 37th Battalion, to form a special raiding "battalion". The 38th fought in its first major battle at Messines, in Belgium, between 7-9 June 1917. It fought in another two major attacks in this sector - the battle of Broodseinde on 4 October, and the battle of Passchendaele on 12 October. It was the 38th's most costly operation of the war, resulting in 62 per cent casualties. The 38th participated in its last major action of the war between 29 September and 2 October 1918 as part of the Australian-American operation that breached the formidable defences of the Hindenburg Line along the St Quentin Canal. It was disbanded in April 1919.
