E. A. & Joseph Greenhalgh were said to have arrived
at Ballina in the 1840s. The ship they travelled on
was believed to have been wrecked on the Ballina bar,
the passengers having to wade ashore. Joseph &
Caroline lived in a variety of places up river from
Ballina, working in the timber getting industry.
In 1874, Joseph was severely injured
on a timber raft. At the time he was working for William
Yabsley. His death was recorded at Lismore, at the age
of 68. after this, Caroline made a living for herself
& her 9 children by being a shrewd cedar dealer.
The NSW Births, deaths & mariages lists her death
in 1913 at Lismore, at the age of 108.
