    • Obituary in The Catholic Press, Thursday 6 August 1936:

      Mrs. Sarah Kelly.
      Bathurst lost one of its oldest and most widely known identities with the death, on the 30th ult., of Mrs. Sarah Kelly, of William-street. Up to four months ago Mrs. Kelly was in perfect health, despite her advancing years. Born 84 years ago at Hill End, she retained to the last vivid recollections of the early days of that historic goldfield. An accomplished horsewoman in her younger days, it was little hardship for her to ride from Hill End to Mudgee, a distance of 50 miles. She remembered the findings by Byers and Holtermann of their famous nugget, and many other highlights in the development of Hill End. Her husband, Mr. Thomas Kelly, died 33 years ago. She is survived by two brothers, Messrs. Archer Palmer (Hill End) and Fred Money Palmer (retired postmaster at Bondi), and by a family of four sons, Messrs. William Kelly (Bathurst), Arthur (Sydney), Frederick (Tarana) and Alan (Sydney), and two daughters, Mrs. J. Stevens (Katoomba) and Miss Ida Kelly (Bathurst). Two other sons, Messrs. Albert and Harry Kelly, predeceased her, the latter having lost his life at the war.
      The funeral moved from her late residence for the Catholic portion of Bathurst Cemetery. At the chapel and the graveside prayers were recited by Rev. Father Cotter, C.M., and Rev. Father Emelhainz.
      The chief mourners were brothers, sons and grandsons of the deceased. The pallbearers were her sons and grandsons, Messrs. Arthur, Allen and Bert, and Reg. Stevens.

    Notes 
    • Sarah grew up in Tambaroora, she was the daughter of Catherine who ran the original Hargraves Hotel hotel and John Palmer who was a prospector/miner. She married Thomas Kelly who was the son of the local senior constable/sergeant in Tambaroora. Sarah must have picked up some experience at running hotels from her mother as she later purchased a licence for the Haymarket Hotel in Bathurst after the death if her hubsand.

    • KELLY.-July 30 1936, 1S30, at her residence. Warilda. William-street, Bathurst, Sarah, widow of the late Thomas Kelly and beloved mother of William, Albert (deceased), Arthur, Frederick, Allen, Harry (deceased!, May, Mrs. J. Stevens, and Ida. in her 84th year. R.I.P. Born at Hill End. N.S.W.

    • The name of Sarah's house, Warilda, is the name of the ship that took her son harry to WWI in France. He was killed in action.

    • From Dennis Lloyd, in reply to Sharon Money.

      Hi Sharon, how nice it is to at last find a positive connection to the Money line I am related to. My GG Grandmother was given a New Testament(which I still have) at the age of 8 in 1861 by her mother. Handwritten entries list all the family history (except only two Money entries), and one entry says that her grandfather was General John Money of Crown Point Estate (Trowse Newton), Norfolk. This John Money is the Balloonist and soldier who fought against the Americans in NY State under Burgoyne. The death certificate lists his full name as John Dennington Money Palmer, father as General John Money and mother as Sarah Dennington, and he arrived here in Australia about 1827. That is about 10 years after John Money died. I cannot make any further connections, perhaps you can help.
