1898 There is a constant movement of Aborigines departing the Windsor district. Some Aboriginal people apply for and receive (others refused) from the Aborigines Protection Board railway passes to journey to join their husband (Millthorpe near Bathurst), to Walcha Road Reserve (near Tamworth). In February, Maggie Barber requests a railway pass to Singleton. She has to explain where she is going and what she is doing there. She advises that she had employment at Singleton with the Rev James White, a champion for the rights of Aborigines in the area.
