      In 1903 John and Effie are living at Boowoogum (Brooyar). John is a grazier and also living there is Edward - stockman. In 1905 all are still living at Boowoogum and Mary is now on the roll.

      The Brisbane Courier Oct 29, 1923
      The late Mrs Fitzgerald of Boowoogum, Wide Bay district whose death occurred in a private hospital in Brisbane had been in failing health for some time. She was born in Sydney 67 years ago but had resided at Boowoogum for many vears being one of the first white women to settle in the Wide Bay Creek. Among her early experiences, Mrs Fitzgerald used to recall having been chased from her home on her husband's selection by a number of half civilised blacks in the middle of the night. The late Mrs Fitzgerald, who was a widow, leaves a grown up family of three sons and three daughters.

      Effie attended the Normal School in Brisbane and was in Fourth class in 1868. Her teacher was a Miss Marshall.

      In 1862 a new building, designated the Normal School was erected within the grounds of the Brisbane Boys and Brisbane Girls Primary Schools, and thereafter those schools were usually referred to as the Brisbane Normal Boys and the Brisbane Normal Girls Primary Schools. The most important function of the Normal School was that of a training centre where pupil-teachers could see the best and most efficient teaching methods in operation.
