Gerringong to Goolmangar

Still on the trail of the Kiama connection branch of the tree.
I stumbled onto some nice websites with information about the family’s relocation to Goolmangar (Nimbin/ Lismore area).

The death occurred at his residence,
Leycester-street, Lismore, on Friday
evening last of Mr. James Mclntyre,
one of the pioneers of the district.
Deceased, who was 85 years of age,
was a native of King’s County, Ireland, ,
and arrived in Australia with his parents
And other members of the family when
he was four years old.(actually he was 7)
The family settled at Gerringong, on the South Coast,
where they followed farming pursuits.
When a young man the subject of this
notice came to tho Richmond River, being accompanied by his late brother (the
late Mr. T. J.McIntyre), brother-in-law
“(Mr. Thomas Carew), and Mr. Thomas
Brown, and selected land, at Goolman-
. gar. Here they endured all the hardships of the pioneerrs, and bravely
, battled against what appeared to be in-surmountable odds, but eventually won
James Mclntyre was one of a family of eight, the remaining members being
John, Thomas (K.S.G. of tho Roman  Church), Mrs. P.Devery, Mrs. L. Hay-
dan, Mrs. T. Carew (all of whom are de
ceased), Mrs. K. Murray and Mrs. F.
Mclntyre All the members of the family were
successful in life,and amassed considerable wealth.
 Deceased, though of a quiet and retiring disposition was very well known for his straightforward
, kindly and genorous
nature, and regrets were heard on all  sides at his passing.
On the Monday previous to his death
he attended the sports on Coleman’s
Point, when he appeared in his usual
good health.
However, he took ill on
Tuesday evening, and
succumbed to
broaohial?? trouble bronchial?)
The late Mr. McIntyre married Miss Ellen Reid of Jamberoo, who pre-decased him five years
ago. He leaves a family of three sons,
James (Goolmangar), John (Tenterfield), and Terence (Beaudesert).
One ??? (William) and a daughter Mrs. J.
????bone are dead.
 The remains were interred in the
Roman Catholic cemetery, the funeral being largely attended. Rev. Fathers O’Byrne and McGrath attended deceas-
F od in his last illness, and the service at
| the graveside was conducted by Fathern McGrath
