    Dave Collins: "Now this, taken the same day, I think, is interesting. Jack is missing, so he took this photo. And we have an extra, unknown, girl – presumably she took the other photo. Perhaps Ada, 19, daughter of Susan’s first marriage, but looks too young, I think. I have no ideas about the name of the dog in each photo."

  • Notes 
    • A later piece of info from Jan McSweeney records the death of Helen
      Margaret Cox Collins, d of JCCollins and JSC Pugh, on 28/07/1901. So, she may not have married since Collins is given as her name on the death certificate.

      Also this raises the question of whether her name was Ellen or Helen.

      Also, confirmation of her death as Helen Margaret Collins, d. of JCC, by way of a photograph of her tombstone at Yeppoon, shows she was unmarried. In fact the tombstone was erected by 'her devoted friend' Charles H Dawson. Lyn Chapman sent the copy of the photograph and text from "The Capricornian' dated Sept 11, 1974. [2]
