Ada GREEN was born on 20 August 1864 in Mangrove, Brisbane Water, NSW.[1]

Ada was the 6th of 12 children of Thomas GREEN and Sarah GREENTREE, who owned a 290 acre property at Mangrove Creek.[2]

She married 'Matthew' William ANDREWS in 1883 and together they had 7 children.

The family lived at Mangrove Creek.

Ada passed away on 6 June 1905 at Wollombi, a small village about 70km North of Mangrove and the administrative centre of the region. Ada was aged only 41 years and her youngest child was barely 18 months old.

She was buried at Wollombi Cemetery, Anglican, Section: AA, Lot: 3.[3][4]

She was reunited with her husband Matthew W. Andrews in March 1935, when he was buried on the same plot.

Research Questions...?

Ada died at Wollombi, almost 70km away from her home. The cause of death remains to be investigated. Why was she at Wollombi? Perhaps for medical treatment?

Interestingly, even though her husband remained living at Mangrove Creek, he was buried 30 years later with his wife at Wollombi.
