Biography

  • Birth: 18 October 1827; Oberheimbach, Rheinland, PrussiaG1
  • Christening: 20 October 1827; St Margaretha Catholic Church, Oberheimbach, Rheinland, PrussiaG; Godfather Philipp Merten.

    The German Immigrant Ships - A report reached Brisbane on Satruday morning, that one of the German Immigrant ships which have been for some time expected, had run on shore while attempting to enter the bay by the southern passage, and that the other had safely reached anchorage. The report turned out to be substantially correct. The Aurora from Hamburg, with 300 immigrants, was off the south passage to the bay on Wednesday. It appears that there was no chart of the coast on board, and that the captain was ignorant that there was any other entrance. Several guns were fired, and signals made, to attract attention, but as there was no appearance of any assistance, it was determined to attempt the passage into the bay. In running in it was found that to prevent a total wreck on the shoal on which the steamer Sovereign perished, and to save the lives of those on board, the only course left was to run the ship on shore. All sail was accordingly crowded on her, and she was run high upon the sand, on the sea side end of Moreton Island. She stands quite upright, and is accessible at half ebb, being dry at her bows. It is not expected that she will be got off. The females and children on board have been removed to Cleveland, and the crew and immigrants are in good health and condition. The other vessel, also from Hamburg, the Marbz entered the bay on Friday by the northern passage, and reached the anchorage without any mishap. She had, we believe, 250 immigrants on board when she sailed, but 47 in all, children and adults, died during the voyage from fever, measles and cholera. The Health Officer, Dr. Hobbs, proceeded to the bay on Saturday, and found the immigrants on board of both ships in a fit state to be landed, the disease on board the Marbz having occurred at an early period of the voyage, when much cold weather was encountered. The scale of the diet on board of this last vessel is stated to have been utterly insufficient. Owing to the distance, the guns fired by the Aurora could not have been heard at the pilot station, but it is unaccountable why such a voyage was undertaken without a chart of the coast being on board. The immigrants will be brought up to Brisbane by the brig Palermo, which proceeds to the Bay tomorrow for that purpose. The Aurora is a very fine ship, only two years old. Both vessels, we believe, have cargo on board. The above are all the particulars we can find room for at present, but, so far as they go, we believe they can be relied on.

  • Obituary: 10 May 1927; One of the oldest and most respected residents of the city, Mrs Margaret Bartholomew, the wife of Mr James Bartholomew, passed peacefully away at her residence, Walker-street, early last evening. The announcement will be received throughout the community with sincere regret, as the deceased by her kindly nature, had endeared herself to a large number of friends, and acquaintances, who will sincerely mourn her loss to-day. The late Mrs Bartholomew was a native of Maryborough, being born here nearly 69 years ago, and it is interesting to record that she and her respected husband celebrated their golden wedding in June of last year. The late Mrs Bartholomew had long devoted herself to charitable work, being one of the earlier presidents of the Benevolent Society, and continuing in active service until the date of her demise. The Maryborough General Hospital Women's Guild also claimed her close attention, and as its honoured president, the guild loses one of its foremost members. The deceased also took a keen interest in sport, being closely associated withe the Point Lookout Croquet Club, and had also assisted her husband in entertaining on the occasions of the many visits of bowlers to this city.

    In church matters the late Mrs Bartholomew was a most ardent supporter of the St Stephen's Presbyterian Church, and the guild workers will gratefully remember the long service of guild work by their vice-president. To mourn their sad loss, the deceased leaves a husband and family of seven children. Two children predeceased her some years ago. The funeral will move from St Stephen's Presbyterian Church at 3 o'clock this afternoon after the church service.
