Headstone of Arthur A and Julia HALL, Narrandera NSW

My father, Andrew James HALL, visited Narrandera NSW on business last week, and kindly visited Narrandera cemetery for me. Around the time my ancestor William HALL (1843 Cambridge - 1912) moved his family from farming in Yass to Koorawatha circa 1903, his brother Arthur Albert HALL (1851 Cambridge - 1921) moved his family from Yass to Narrandera. Neither family line seems to know quite why the families moved off their respective farms, though the Yass region suffered successive droughts. The brothers had married BLISS sisters from the adjacent Yass farms. Most of Arthur and Julia's children appear to have stayed in the Narrandera district.

Arthur Albert and his wife Julia (sometimes Juda) are both buried at Narrandera cemetery, along with their son Frederick Oliver HALL, who was born is Yass in 1889 and did not marry. They are entered on the headstone in chronological daughter of death.
