This burial site is of the Wangku-Murra trial people
The Wangku-Murra area extended west to Coopers Creek, south
to Maryilco and north to Bundeena and to the east as far as
the Wilson River. The custom of burying the deceased facing
north, as seen in the two headstones, these belong to a long descent
of Aboriginal descendents and European union. The first burial
is unknown but the last burial was in 1950 of a young Aboriginal
named Ossie Rowland of Nockatunga. Many others are descendants
of "Chookoo" who died near Ritchie's well. Many were removed
to coastal reserves.

Billy UBALLIE - Poonkilla Bandicoot
