      Obituary: 1912Mrs Anna Boneham relict of the late Mr Ebenezer Boneham of Millicent...The late Mrs Boneham was born in Kent, England 78 years ago and she came out to Australia alone at the age of 16 years. She met her late husband at Nairn, and was married there when she was 18 years of age. Six years afterwards the couple proceeded overland to Kalangadoo, and after a residence there of 25 years, they came across to millicent to live, Mr Boneham having previously acquired portion of the land thrown open for selection in 1876. He spent the remaining years of his life at "Monrovia", the property now worked by his son, Mr E F R Boneham, and passed away there in 1896. Not long afterwards Mrs Boneham came into the town, and led a retired life at her home on the Mount Gambier road. There was a family of nine children, only three of them are living - Mr E F R Boneham, and Mrs John Varcoe, of Millicent, and Mrs Jas. Kent, of Cowra New South Wales. There are about 20 grandchildren...She had a wonderfully retentive memory and her anecdotes and reminiscences related to a period when the journey overland from Adelaide had to be made in drays, when the Kalangadoo mail had to be called for at Robe, and when the country was so densely timbered that Mr Boneham, desiring to reach some land near the Gran Gran caves, had to secure the services of a blackfellow as guide and to blaze the trees along the route so that the return journey could be made more rapidly... Adam Lindsay Gordonwas grequently her husbands guest at Kalangadoo, and she had many incidents to relate which shed a clear light upon the character and disposition of the famous Australian poet...
