    Biography Notes CHRISTINA McLEAN - born 17/4/1859 at "Coewey", Lake Alexandrina.

    MARRIAGE: She married James Henry Hughes (b. 1852) who when young was a teamster on a station in the Kingston area. According to the reminiscences of Douglas McLean (son of "Alexandrew") - the Manager was a cocky little fellow of the picking and bullying type. He endured this as long as possible, but finally James turned and the Manager fled with a whip cracking round his legs. The outcome was that surrounding property owners placed James on the Black List and none would employ him. He then went contracting with his brother-in-law Hughie McLean of Kingston but lost his share of the profits as Hughie drank the lot. As the first child (May) was born in 1878 at Milang it must be presumed that James left the south east for the McLean home territory. He farmed Narrung and at Albert Hill (half-way between Meningie and Ashville). It was here that Christy wife of Hugh the Elder spent her last days with her daughters family, until her death in 1907.

    DEATHS: James died on 4/11/1920 aged 68 and Christina died aged 85 years on 27/5/1944
    and both were interred at Meningie Cemetery. They had 7 children.  [1
