The Mercury (Hobart, Tas.) Friday 2 August 1940 MIDLANDS BRIDE O'Connor - Littlechild Wedding
At the little Presbyterian church at Kirklands, near Campbell Town, the wedding was celebrated quietly yesterday afternoon of Miss Nellie Margeurite (Neddie) Littlechild and Mr. Arthur Francis (Barney) O'Connor. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. A. E. Giles. The bride is the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Littlechild, Egleston, Campbell Town, and the bridegroom is the only son of Mrs. O'Connor, Melbourne, and the late Mr. Arthur O'Connor, Benham, Avoca. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a wool larmaine ensemble in a soft shade of Arcadia blue. The frock was simply cut and the coat pintucked. Narrow pink ruching outlined the high neckline of the frock, and she wore a spray of pink orchids on the coat. Her hat and accessories were navy. The bride and bridegroom were unattended.
The bride's parents entertained at a buffet tea at Pringle's Hotel, Campbell Town. Mrs. Littlechild wore a black ensemble in a light-weight woollen material. Cut on tailored lines, the coat had panels of quilting down the front, and the frock was finished at the high neckline with white pipings. Her black felt breton hat had novelty lacings of lacquered braid on the brim, and was finished in front with a feather mount. Mrs. O'Connor also chose black for her ensemble, which was relieved with white, and her hat was black. Her daughter, Miss Deasy O'Connor, wore a musquash fur coat, with a pink frock in a light wool romaine, and her felt hat was in the same shade of pink. Mr. and Mrs. A. F. O'Connor will make their home at Benham, Avoca.

93 ( The obituary below is quite a moving account, I think, of the life of Elizabeth Flett, though there is no mention of the fourth sister, or of the baby brother, James Anderson Flett born on board the Indus.)
Chronicle Adelaide Sat 10 July 1926;
Miss Elizabeth Flett, whose death occurred at her residence, Brougham-place,on Thursday, was one of the early colonists of South Australia. With her mother and father, Mr. aud Mrs. William Flett, and her two sisters, she arrived at Port Adelaide in 1840, after a voyage extending over six months. Miss Flett, who was born at Edinburgh, was two years old when the family landed in this state, and her recollections of the province extended back to the earliest days. Her father was one of the first provision merchants and grocers in Adelaide, and with his family lived over the shop in Hindley street , where the business was carried on by Flett and Linklater. About 60 years ago he retired, however, and the business later on passed, into the hands of Messrs. Crawford & Co. When Mr. Flett retired he built himself a house at Brougham-place, and it was in this old world place, that Miss Flett resided at the time of her death. She was the last surviving member of her family, and for some considerable time had not gone out-side the house. In her younger days, however, she took a deep interest in church work, and was an active member of Chalmers Church, having been a teacher in the Sunday-school there for half a century. One of her most cherished possessions was a testimonial and illuminated address from her Sunday-school pupils. Both her sisters lived to a great age, and the three old ladies, who were devoted to one another, formed a wonderful link with the past.

Queensland Times, Ipswich Herald and General Advertiser Qld. Thursday 8th December 1864
A deplorable accident, causing the death by drowning of three persons, two of whom perished while heroically endeavouring to save the third,occurred in Orkney. As the Sunday packet was on ber way to Kirkwall during a severe gale of westerlywind, one of the crew, in endeavouring to reef the main sail, was struck by it and thrown overboard. Notwithstanding the storm and surf, two of the persons on board heroically resolved to make an attempt to save-the drowning man, and for that purpose launched the packet's small boat, and were bravely rowing to the spot, when a sudden sea struck the skiff, and, melancholy to relate, the two brave men fell victims to their courage, and perished with the other. One of the two was a promising young gentleman, a son of the Rev. Mr. Ingram, minister of the island of Eday, and was a medical student. The other was a son of the skipper of the packet, who had to witness the sad sight of his son perishing within a few feet of him.
