    Notes 
    • One of the largest gatherings seen in almost 10 years occurred recently at the funeral of Barry Morris at Hartley's historic St. Bernards Church. Barry, a well known local resident, had previously served two terms as Member for the Blue Mountains in NSW Parliament, but in his last few years he had withdrawn from the public view.

      Most of the 700 strong crowd gathered outside the small church, listening to the service on loudspeakers set up for the occasion. Barry's nephew Wayne Morris, and his close friend for many years Richard "Dick" Austin gave moving eulogies during the 80 minute service.

      The many reporters in attendance kept their distance, and did not bother the service, or later interment in Hartley Cemetery. The sole exception was a helicopter that circled the church for some time, drowning out the service for those outside.

      Barry was the Great, Great, Great grandson of Pierce Collits & Mary Hardwick, Edward Field & Elizabeth Mitchell, James Wilson & Elizabeth Mitchell, and James Morris and Jane Turner.
