Hiram dies

Death of Hiram. He is said to be “the last full blood” to have practiced Aboriginal traditional culture connected to art work in a cave on Tuckerman’s grant on Sackville Reach. Mathews wrote under the heading “Darkinung”: “Hiram, brother of Tilly, painted hands in the cave near the punt at Sackville Reach. The mother of Tilly & Hiram was Lucy, daughter of Peggy”. (Ford 212)
