    Notes 
    • Lydia Brown's body was laid to rest in what was known as the 'cow paddock' at Brown's Valley, there being no general cemetery at the time.

      Being of a religious and charitable disposition, James saw the need for a church and general cemetery, so donated land for this purpose, thus laying the foundations for the establishment of the Nyrang Creek Church and general cemetery. He also had his daughter's remains reinterred in the new cemetery.
