Margaret White very kindly sent the Wagga Wagga City Library copies of two postcards in her family history collection and some interesting information on the Premier Poultry Yards, which used to be where Burns Way and the Civic Theatre and grounds are now. The poultry yards existed from about 1902 to 1911. The house was called Ingleside and Elizabeth Jane Wilson continued to live there until her death in 1943.
Elizabeth Jane Wilson , nee Elizabeth Jane Jelly, had a very difficult married life, as her second husband was violent, and she was also the victim of a brutal beating and robbery by a male lodger. William Wilson, Elizabeth's second husband, also attacked Elizabeth's daughter Jessie, who was from her first marriage to Douglas Harry Browett.
She was highly esteemed by all who knew her, and, being of a retiring and kindly disposition, she was loved by all.
