“…Why look among the dead for one who is alive?”
Thought for week: “Lord, let us search for you every day among the living.”
HAPPY EASTER! HE IS RISEN – SO SHALL WE RISE!
Snippets of St Mary’s History (cont.)
JOHN & ARABELLA CRISFIELD
John and Arabella Crisfield were married in Chiltern in 1882 and in the same year came to Corowa. A blacksmith by trade, he set up in business and also practised as a veterinary surgeon. There were five sons in the family – Walter, William, Jack, James and Leo.
James followed in the footsteps of his father and became a veterinary surgeon, his territory being a large part of the Riverina and north-east Victoria. He married Eileen Regan and had one daughter, Mary (Mrs Fitzgibbon) who, with her family still resides in Corowa. Other descendants are John, Brian, Desmond and Ray, great-grandsons of the original John. [from AT Roddy The Church by the Rocky River 1978 Ch. 5, p.24] To be cont.
