Regular price $33.49 Sale

Felicity Campbell’s family association with Wanganui dates from the late 1840s when Sergeant Robert Dawson Campbell and his wife Jane Taylor arrived with the 65th Regiment. The family has farmed in the district ever since — Felicity and her husband Michael Smyth at Cherry Bank. No Epitaph recreates the events and causes leading to the Bennier tragedy of 1917. It tells of Ethel Bennier, and includes many local people caught up in her story. In 1991 Michael and Felicity took up part of the Oeta property in the Mangamahu Valley where these events unfolded.
