Smith Joseph Frederick James ( Jimmy )

Joseph Smith died in 1954, he died in tragic circumstances. He was just 15 yrs old.   He is buried in the Fairbridge section of the Molong Cemetery.

Joseph or Jimmy as he was sometimes called, committed suicide on the oval at Fairbridge Farm Molong. One has to mourn the loss of such a young life, for a reason that we may never know.

Joseph’s arrival data to the Farm School is also not available, which is strange, apparently he had a brother living in Molong.?

Came to Fairbridge Molong in 1957 and began immediately as a farm trainee. I was 15 yrs old. I loved the work,but found it very lonely and the bullying was awful. Billy Gelson saved me many times in Orange cottage from beatings. I loved this man. I have had a successful life with a wife who died in 2003. I have 3 children and 2 grandchildren. Life has been a challenge since Maureen died.. Brian K OF
