She is buried in the Congregational Church graveyard in Dover. Edward died 18 Sept 1915 aged 91 years and is buried in the cemetry at Mirboo North, Victoria.

The Cemetry where Harriet was buried has now been redeveloped.
14 memorials were located in the Congregational Cemetery. The cemetery had been much larger and the park with the War Memorial had been developed on the site. Headstones from there had been transferred to the current cemetery opposite the local refuse tip. These were in a heap on the right hand boundary as you enter the cemetery. A 1950 list titled St Paul's Church of England is a combination of the headstones in the old Congregational cemetery but doesn't include the 25 removed headstones.

My great grandfather was Walter E. Blake who was an Engineer/Surveyor for the New London River company. Most of the research has been carried out by a distant cousin. Rev. Jim Perryman with whom I have been in touch with for many years. He was a frequent visitor to Herne Bay when he used to visit his aunts, Margaret and Mary. Jim used to keep in touch with Hazel Sinclair-Williams nee Blake, the daughter of John Blake (also a resident of Herne Bay) , he was my father's uncle and his wife was always known as 'Aunty Tiny'. Hazel left him the family trees which you may have copies of plus some typed pages of family history. I also have, via my father Norman James Blake, the original Diary of Edward Austin's voyage on the Emily and the original letter he wrote home from the ship. I have recently agreed with Jim that I would like to donate these documents to an Australian museum but I want them to go to the best home possible!. With Kindest regards,Lawrence J Blake

on Tue, 24 Oct 2006 My name is Brian Harris, youngest son of Percy Harris, who wed Isabella May Austin, daughter of James Henry Prince Austin, who farmed at Mirboo North.
I am the last living of the three sons, brothers Keith and Alan having passed away in 1988 and 1990. I am now aged 70 at last birthday, April 4th.
My younger daughter Kim recently holidayed in Tassie and tried to find info on Jas Hy. but couldn't get any result. When they arrived home Kim got to work somehow and found this information on your website.
It is with great excitement that I have read the page and found nearly all your info correct.

*Harriett Ellen to my knowledge wed a Mr Mackintosh and lived in Parkdale, Vic. When he died later wed Abraham Freedman, affectionately known as Uncle Abe. Although he was Jewish he for quite some time acted as superintendent of a Presbyterian Sunday school !! He and Auntie Nell, as she liked to be known retired up at Porepunkah. Sadly I don't know the dates of their passing
My wife, Janice was interested in genealogy for quite some time but could not get very far back with the Harris or Austin families.
I have taken the liberty of printing your page for our own use and am most appreciative of what must have been a lot of hard work on your part.
Yours truly, Brian Harris
