Buried at Dapto R/C with wife, Elizabeth nee Love.
Her headstone and D/C details incorrect. An 1863 photo of her and eldest daughter Ann Phibbs nee Hore, has notes on back indicating that Elizabeth was born in NSW in Jan 1792 and did not arrive on Matilda with parents in 1791. Further, she consistently declared herself BC at five separate musters and censuses.
