    Daughter of Hugh McKenzie. Christina emigrated from Scotland with her first husband (McFarlane) and shepherded for John and William Cameron who had purchased Morambro Station from Oliver and Brown.
    It is of interest that William Cameron migrated to New Zealand and married the daughter of a Maori chief and received an island as a wedding gift and his Maori wife used to sail to fetch him from the island. This is from a long account of Morambro Station and its history in the "Border Watch", written by Les. Hills. The long account of Naracoorte appears to have been published in 1906.
