    Notes 
    • John Joseph Smith was born in Tipperary Ireland (and was called "Tipperary Jack" about 1830. He may have come to Australia as an assisted migrant about 1850 to 1853. He took up a land selection in the Mudgee district and became a farmer. He lived there for the rest of hi life. He became a successful grazier at Stoney Creek, Cooyal. Seems he was regarded as a "hard man", but it is known that he was a hard worker, stayed on his property most of the time and rarely left it.
      John Smith would not let his daughters work (not uncommon in those days), when he died on 5th August 1913 aged 74 he left enough money for each of his children to purchase a house.
