Me gran, Madeline White. Married Jimmy Welsh **The Singin Welshman from Piliga**
Photo taken @ Walget. The young girl iz Marie Veech. Her parents owned the station 'Quilbone' @ Quambone that Madeline, Jimmy & the rest of our mob worked & lived on. She iz now married & known az Marie Nightingale. She also B'came a nurse.
When Marie waz transferred from Orange hospital 2 Cowra hospital in '91, on her 1st shift she ova heard some of the nurses speakin 'bout an old aboriginal man who talked up bigtime 2 hiz visitors but wouldn't say a word 2 the nurses or Dr's. Marie said 2 'em  *I'll try, I grew up with an aboriginal family. She said when she stood in that doorway 2 hiz room & Dadda looked up @ here she knew who he waz straight away & that it waz a pleasure & honour 2 look afta him. Here iz Nurse Nightingale with Dadda @ Cowra Hospital...


Marie also said that her parents would only leave their kids with Madeline 'cause they didn't trust anybody else.
I luv this one that she told me. They useta go 2 town every fortnight & would alwayz go 2 the cafe 4 lunch, durin which someone from our mob would hit 'em up 4 some $$$$'s. One time during a drought they were sittin in their car & her mum spotted one of Dadda's mob Vera comin 2wards 'em & she said 2 the kids *We can't even afford 2 go 2 the cafe ourselves, how am I gonna tell her that I don't have any $$$$'s 2 give 'em. When Vera got 2 the car, she put her hand in & said *Here missus we know U R havin a rough time @ the mo & dropped 10 shillins in her mums lap.
Marie haz kindly hand written 12 pages of her memories from that time which I'm typin up & will put up here. She waz the one that gave me the Links 4 Aunty Joan, Aunty Thelma & Widdy's stories. Plus stuff on our great Uncle Dave Brown.

I useta think it waz **spooky but sorta meant 2 B** when somethin happened @ certain time BUT now I reckon GOD knows the time iz right. Like how I came by this book March '06. Luv it that the Chapter titled Minya - page 123 iz all 'bout Uncle Cyril the truest & deadliest minya eva. Readin this confirmed that the amount of tears me,me sista;s & daught have shed iz a female Welsh trait.
