Big turnout for Maxwell family reunion

Descendants of William Mack Maxwell met at Tulladunna, near Wee Waa, recently

About 130 descendants of William Mack Maxwell attended the Maxwell family reunion held at Tulladunna, Wee Waa, earlier this month.

About 130 descendants of William Mack Maxwell gathered at ‘Tulladunna’ Wee Waa on the week-end of October 7 and 8 for a family reunion.

William Mack was born in 1856 at Raymond Terrace, and in 1885 with his wife Harriet settled at ‘Mountain View’ near Wee Waa, a property purchased by Mack, as he was known. Previous to his purchasing ‘Mountain View’ and for some time after, Mack operated a bullock team transporting goods to and from railheads as expansion pushed the railway further west.
