      RIGNEY MARY E MICHAEL ANNE CAMDEN

    2. [S2844] Freeman's Journal, Thursday 19 November 1931.
      MRS. MARY ELLEN MALLON,
      'LUCAN,' GARLAND.
      We regret to record the death of Mrs.
      Mary Ellen Mallon, of 'Lucan,' Garland,
      who died at Carcoar Hospital on Tuesday,
      27th October, after a brief illness. De
      ceased, who was the daughter of the late
      Michael and John Rigney, of 'Rose-
      mount,' Cootamundra, was born on the
      17th of March', 1863. At the suggestion
      of her uncle (Rev. Father Michael Har
      rington Ryan), then resident priest at
      Carcoar, she was sent as a boarder to
      Carcoar Convent, being driven by her
      father in a buggy and pair the long dis
      tance of over two hundred miles. Rail
      ways, like boarding-schools, were few
      and far between in those early days, and
      Carcoar shared with Bathurst the proud
      distinction of being one of the only two
      convents west of the Blue Mountains,
      and attracted many pupils far and near.
      At the age of twenty deceased was mar
      ried to the late Peter Joseph Mallon, of
      'Cowong,' near Cootamundra. Soon
      after their marriage Mr. Mallon pur
      chased 'Glen Logan,' in the Cowra dis
      trict, and later acquired the 'Lucan'
      property, where the family has resided
      for the last thirty years. During her ill
      ness Mrs. Mallon was constantly visited
      by the Rev. Fathers Sheahan and Casey,
      the Sisters of Mercy, and was consoled
      by a visit from her daughter, Sister Mary
      Alphonsus, of the Convent of Mercy,
      Wellington. His Lordship Dr. Norton,
      Bishop of Bathurst, sent a special mes
      sage of sympathy to her. Many mes
      sages and visits of condolence were re
      ceived from friends all over the district.
      Amongst the visitors were two old Car
      coar Convent schoolmates — Mrs. Thos.
      Grant (nee Ellie Mallon), 'The Falls,'
      Canowindra (sister-in-law) and Mrs.
      Eugene Finn (nee Allie Flanagan), Can
      owindra. Mrs. Mallon is survived by one
      brother, Mr. Thos. Rigney, 'Lucan,' her
      two younger brothers, Michael and John,
      of 'The Grove,' Cootamundra, having .
      predeceased her. Her only sister (Mrs.
      Geo. Curran) lives in New Zealand. The
      members of her own family who are left
      to mourn the loss of a dearly loved and '
      good Christian mother are Mrs. Geo.
      ('Ted') Lowe, 'Lisieux,' Carcoar; Mrs.
      Thos. Buckley, Sydney; Sister Mary Al
      phonsus, Convent of Mercy, Wellington;
      Mrs. S. Brown, Sydney; Mrs. W. Hoane,
      Crookwell; Mrs. Luke Walsh, Nevertier;
      Mrs. D. Coffey, Sydney, and Mr. J. S.
      Mallon, Waverley, her only son. There
      are many grandchildren. The funeral
      took place at 10 a.m. on Wednesday— a
      Requiem Mass being celebrated at 8
      o'clock. The Very Rev. Father Casey
      officiated at the graveside in Carcoar
      Cemetery, where the mortal remains of
      deceased were laid beside those of her
      late husband. Amongst the mourners
      were Mr. and Mrs. Donald Grant, Mr. and
      Mrs. Douglas Grant, Mrs. Jack Lynch
      and Miss Callen of .Canowindra, who had
      all motored long distances that morning
      to be present at the Requiem Mass and
      funeral of their deceased relative.
      Obituary

    3. [S2844] Freeman's Journal, Thursday 5 February 1914.
      Mr. Michael Rigney.
      The death occurred last week at his own
      residence, 'Gravesend,' Brawlin, of Mr.
      Michael Rigney, one of the highly respected
      pioneers of that district. The late Mr. Rig
      ney had heen for some time a sufferer from
      gall troubles, and had undergone two opera
      tions at Lewisham Private Hospital. All
      medical attention was of no avail, and he
      kept onl gradually sinking, until his life
      peacefully terminated on Sunday 11th Janu
      ary at about 8 am.. His last hours were
      made happy by the constant Visits tf Rev.
      T. Slattery; Rev: P. Lynnch, the local Sisters
      of Mercy, and Dr Brennan: Born at Cob
      bity, near Camderi, He was a nephew of the
      late Father Ryan, and was the elder of
      three brothers, Michael, John, and Thomas,
      who together with their two sisters (now
      Mrs. P. Mallon, of 'Rosegreen,' Garland,
      and Mrs. James Curran, of New Zealand),
      came with their father, the late Mr. Michael
      Rigney, senr., and settled on the well-known
      property at Jindalee called 'Rosemount' in
      March of the year '70. After gaining the
      necessary experience with his father, he went
      to the Brawlin district, and took up pro
      .perty there, on which he worked for 38 years
      until the time of his death. The late Mr.
      Rigney was one of those men possessed of re
      markable determination and energy, never
      growing impatient with the difficulties so fre
      quency experienced by the pioneers' of his
      day with whom he combined in making the
      district Of today the district of which all
      may feel so proud. Deceased is survived by
      his wife, two brothers and sisters, and a
      family of twelve — six giris and. six boys - to
      mourn their loss. The funeral, which left
      'Gravesend' on Monday at one o'clock, was,
      although it rained, one of the largest yet
      seen in Cootamundra, and as a proof of de
      ceased's popularity it may be mentioned that
      large numbers of friends came long dis
      tances, some as far as 250 miles, to take port
      in the ceremony. On leaving the house the
      remains were carried to the hearse by mem
      bers of the Hibernian Society, of which de
      ceased was a. member for many years, and
      on entering the town the funeral was met by
      Hibernians who, forming in line, marched at
      each side of the hearse. The funeral proces
      sion passed through the main street past the
      Catholic church, where the bell tolled mourn
      fully as it led to the Catholic portion of the
      cemetery. The Hibernians were agaiu in at
      tendance, and carried the remains to the
      grave wlhere the burial ceremony was read
      by the Very Rev. Father O'Shaughnessy,
      P.P., attended by Father Lynch.
