HOT OFF THE PRESS & WHAT'S NEW

Fulton's Creek- The Diary of Gilbert Smith (1883-1884)

Previously little or nothing was known about this area apart from old newspaper extracts and scant public records. This is a personal diary for the entire year of 1883, written by a prospector who lived a solitary life in the Fulton's Creek valley, but travelled across a mountain range on foot every Sunday, to teach Sunday-school to children in the neighbouring Donnelly's Creek valley, in which he later lived at the township of Store Point. The diary is a very precise and detailed account of his daily work, hut life and mood swings determined by his prospecting success or feelings of loneliness.

My expedition work is now completed. I have found many sites over a 10 year period working on this project that Gilbert spoke about. This diary even proves that the Burial Ground at Store Point is not the real burial ground.... there is another.
