    HUGHIE McLEAN - registered as "Hughie" - and recorded in his father's Bible as "my eldest son was born on this day 21 March. 1850".

    The reminiscences said that he grew up a capable and sober man, and unlike his mother despised the aborigines, and drunken whites whom he equated with them. He left home before his father died, and was gazetted as holding the licence of the "Coolatoo Inn" a few miles from Kingston in the south-east of S.A., and this no doubt caused him to fall from grace, and to become a victim of alcohol himself.

    He was described as a farmer at one stage, but had teamed to be a stonemason, and was working on the Kingston wharf shunting trains when his eldest boy was killed in 1889. He seems to have moved about a good deal using his building skills. He was not in the vicinity of the scene of the accident on the Kingston Jetty at the time his son "Willie" died there.

    DEATH: of Hughie at the age of 63 years, on 29/5/1913 (of a stroke) while working on a construction site at Parrakie, S.A. interred at Tailem Bend, S.A.

    1913 DIED IN THE BUSH
    (Newspaper item - Tailem Bend, May 30)
    On Thursday afternoon the body of Mr H. McLean, who had been camping about three miles from the town, was discovered in his tent by Mr W. Sneath. The deceased, when conversing with Mr Sneath a few days earlier, complained of feeling unwell, and it was through entering the tent to enquire after the camper's health that Mr Sneath discovered the man had succumbed. Constables Campbell and Kain were advised, and went out for the body. It is believed that members of Mr McLean's family are residents of Mount Gambier.

    DEATH: Maryanne, wife of Hughie continued in Directories as a resident of Kingston until the year of her death. She died on 11/12/1927 (age not given) and was interred at the Kingston Cemetery.
