    Notes 
    • In connection with the recent death of Mr E F R Boneham, an old resident of
      the district recalls that the Late Mr Ebenezer Boneham, father of Mr Frank
      Boneham took up the area known as "Starswood" in the year 1870. Situated at
      Stoney Creek, it contained 1305 acres in one block, and was held under
      perpetual lease Mr Boneham held it under "substitute residence" conditions,
      and never lived there. After the death in 1912 of his widow, the late Mrs
      Anna Boneham, "Starswood" was worked by Mr Frank Boneham, who eventually had
      it subdivided, and sold portion of it to ......... Mr Ebenezer Boneham
      resided at Kalangadoo until the year 1880, when he purchased "Monrovia" from
      the Ref. Mieschell, a Lutheran clergyman and doctor..... "Monrovia" was
      originally selected by Mr Harris....They built "Monrovia" using much of the
      timber from the steamer "Geltwood" wrecked south of Millicent in June 1876.
      The surviving member of the Boneham family is Mrs John Varcoe, of "Woodbine
      Villa", Millicent........A letter of sympathy had also been forwarded to Mrs
      E F R Boneham, whose husband, a former member of the council, had passed
      away. In his last will the late Mr Boneham had done the right thing for
      Millicent.

      Cr A G Nitschke said he had entered the council 32 years ago, and was the
      only surviving member of the council of that time. The late Cr Boneham had
      given him much sound advice...Cr Boneham was a man who fought things out to
      a finish. There was no quibbling about him. Amongst actions which would be
      remembered was the fact that he collected funds for the erection of a
      windmill and water service for the cemetery. Cr E Femson also expressed
      sympathy with Cr Williams and his family. He said he had sat in the council
      for a few years with Cr Boneham who was a straight, hard man, who managed
      the affairs of his ward in his own way and was always a gentleman. He had
      done the right thing in devising some of his property.
