Sue French has written in part:

"A family story says that William Joseph Lewis died by drowning in the Hastings River. It is told that a lady living on the northern side of the Hastings River was in urgent need of medicine. Because of heavy rain, the usual transportation could not get the medicine across the river. William Joseph Lewis offered to take it across on horseback. He was swept away. There was a Coroners inquest held at Long Flat and it was found that he died as a result of injuries received through a fall from his horse. In the inquest records he is noted as a small selector at Ellenboro."

Sue French has written, in part:

"After marriage, George Lewis settled first at "the Angle" Ellenborough, but in the early 1890's selected land with his brother in law, John Wallis, at Pappinbarra, which he called "Ferndale".

George, however, moved with his family to the Camden Haven area where he worked with a bullock team hauling timber for a mill there. After a few years he returned to the property at Pappinbarra. He also worked here with his bullock team, bringing Cedar from the Cedar Scrub, Upper Pappinbarra to the wharf near Bain Bridge - a long steep haul, with very bad roads. He built the selection up into a cattle property and "Ferndale" was the hospitality centre of Pappinbarra, visiting clergy used to stay there."
