Farm labourer Hiram Sharp(e) from Salina, Onondaga County, left Van Diemen’s Land on the Belle in August 1846 and sailed to Sydney. He met and married recently widowed Mary Black in Sydney in 1850. They settled in Kiama, New South Wales and began to farm. The couple’s first son Milo Richmond was born on November 21, 1852 and was baptized in Nimmitabel N.S.W. In total, Hiram and Mary had five children. Hiram gained employment as a shepherd at a large sheep station named Bibbenluke. Here he advanced to general work hand and then finally to carrier. The couple purchased a property of eighty-three acres near Bombala on July 28, 1857. The Sharp(e)s lived there until Hiram’s unfortunate death by accidental drowning at Crankies Plain on February 19, 1859. He was buried in an unmarked grave at Nimmitabel.
