Bottin Family Graves

Morts Folly Rd

Dignams Creek





George Bottin, local farmer, died aged 49 on 3 December 1880 following a five week long alcoholic coma. The son of Thomas and Jane Bottin, he was buried on 5 December 1880 by J Humphrey and Mr Vinlin. His headstone also remembers the death of his son, William Bottin. William was buried in the same location following an accidental drowning in the Tuross River. William was 25 when he was buried on 29 March 1898 by W H Spear. Until the mid-1970s there were two graves side by side, the second with a wooden "headstone". This second grave "headstone" was nearly destroyed by fire and was removed to the Eurobodalla Shire depot, Narooma, for safe keeping. It is thought that the grave was that of a male member of the Southam family of Couria Creek. [From website listed below]
