JOSEPH WADE, of Evergreen, Gundiah, are respectfully invited to attend the Funeral of her beloved husband (JOSEPH), to move from the Tiaro Railway Station for the Tiaro Cemetery on arrival of mail train from Maryborough THIS MORNING.

    • Accidental death: 6 Jun 1906, Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland; A most distressing fatality occurred near Brooweena yesterday morning, through which Mr Joseph Wade, senr., one of our oldest and most widely known district settlers, met with a painfully sudden death. It appears that Mr Wade was visiting his son at Wadeleigh, and at about nine o'clock yesterday was out inspecting some drought horses in company with two of his sons and Mr Geo. Phillips. When the party arrived at a gate the deceased gentleman dismounted, and with the bridle hanging lightly on his wrist. Mr Wade went to take something out of his pocket, but hardly had he put his hand in, when the horse drew back, throwing the unfortunate gentleman under its feet, where his chest was badly trampled upon. Seeing that the accident was a serious one, his son at once despatched a telegram to Maryborough for Dr H. C. Garde, who proceeded to the scene by special train, without delay, but before he arrived Mr Wade had passed away. Immediately after the accident he had been removed on a stretcher to the residence of Mr R. Maitland at Westwood, where he breathed his last about two hours and a half after the accident had occurred. The deceased gentleman arrived in Maryborough in 1864 from England in the ship Prince Consort, and immediately afterwards proceeded out into the district to engage in pastoral pursuits. The first seven years he spent on Miva, and after that he was engaged in managing one of the out stations of Widgee for about two years. He then settled down at Evergreen, Gundiah, and had remained there ever since, devoting himself to horse breeding, and dairying. He leaves a widow and four sons, Messrs R.W.F.J. T., George, and Joseph, and two daughters, Misses A. and E. Wade, all of whom are very widely known and respected throughout the district, and much sympathy will be felt for them in their extremely sad bereavement. The body was brought down to Maryborough last night, but will be conveyed to Tiaro tomorrow for interment at the Tiaro Cemetery. The funeral will leave the Tiaro Station at 11.30 a.m. Mr Wade was in Maryborough during the recent carnival week, and attended the Show. The news of his sudden death will come as a great shock to his many Maryborough friends. Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland, Wednesday 6 June 1906

    • Interests: 26 Aug 1890, Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland; HAM AND BACON CURING. Mr. Watson and bis assistant were at Goorah on Friday and Saturday last. On his arrival at Mr. Jessen's he was shown round, and expressed himself higly pleased with all the arrangements, and it was easily seen that pigs were a great item in the district, and though not so perfect as it might be, the pigs are turned into bacon in a scientific way. The preparations being required operations were started at about 9 o'clock. The first two pigs were knocked down, bled, then carried 50 yards to the water, cleaned, disemboweled, cut down, and hanging in their places in exactly 25 minutes, the assistant the whole time saying how it was done, and saying, "See" which was not in any way easy. When two or three more had been done the pupils started, some of them shaping very well, Mr. Watson the whole time explaining why and why not things should be done, which was listened to with great interest, the assistant showing how the intestines were cleaned and run without the trouble of turning them. During the day 15 pigs were finished. In the evening Mr. Watson gave a short lecture and answered many questions. Mr. Watson and his assistant were sincerely thanked for their courtesy during the day. On Saturday morning the curing commenced, the assistant again showing all he knew. Great fun and amusement was caused by the desperate, though vain, efforts of some of the pupils to extract the shoulder blade as the assistant did. Some of the pupils, however, succeeded very well, in fact, some of them seemed to go to work with all confidence, and succeeded in getting a word of praise from both of the experts. The different cuts of the trade were shown, how a ham should be cut; also a side for rolling, and everything was demonstrated to the full satisfaction of the onlookers. After the cutting up and paring was done, it was salted and then placed in a brine that would float an egg or a potato. The heads and feet were then all salted and neatly packed, and the 15 pigs were finished, salted, and placed in pickle by 10 o'clock. There were a lot of persons present on both days-60 or 70-amongst whom were Messrs. W. C. Wilson, P. Cornwell, P. Biddles, P. Joyce, J. Orphant, G. Stuckey, J. Wade, and many others. Great thanks are due to Mr. and Mrs. Jessen, also the Misses Jessen, for the way they entertained the visitors from all parts on both days. Mr. Watson left for Yengarie, and returns on Monday to turn the bacon, of which I will advise you further, as many of the old curers are rather dubious as to the results of the process.

    • Personal: 10 Jan 1893, Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland; DEBORAH. January 6. [From our own correspondent] On the 3rd of January we had a heavy thunderstorm with rain and heavy hailstones. The ground was almost covered with hailstones, which did a great deal of damage to all the young corn. It was stripped as if It had been done with forks. Not a single leaf of tobacco is left sound. It is all cut into holes and rags. The last couple of days the weather has been fine. The atmosphere still keeps hot, and heavy cloud, hanging about. The hailstorm did not do much damage to the early crops as it is almost all ready to pull, which the farmers ought to be thankful for. It is time for the farmers, to prepare land for wheat and potatoes, and also for the farmers to lookout for some good seed wheat. I think that it would be a wise thing for the farmers to send to Victoria for seed. I intend to send for Talavera and Purple Staw.

    • Personal: 8 Oct 1896, Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland ; Sir,-With your kind permission I should like to further reply to your own correspondent's letter from Deborah on 22nd September with reference to the part of his letter dealing with dairying matters. There are only Mr. Wade and Mr. Jessen in this neighbourhood with anything like 100 to 120 milkers, and the former has sometimes made £15 a week for dairy produce, as well as mobs of fats he has sold from time to time to the butchers. Mr. Jessen sells "abundance" of butter, as "your own" terms it, regularly at top prices, so that does not correspond with "your own's" statement that they barely make enough for their own use. I suppose I must be one of the industrious men who looks after his cows, sincc I get 88 gallons per day from 20 cows. Let your correspondent beat that if he can. I did not lose a beast during the drought, and "your own" lost nine of his best milkers, so I think he should look after his own cows and grow fodder for them instead of giving advice to his neighbours. It would be better if "your own" confined himself to the truth, and not misrepresent this district, as he is in the habit of doing, to suit his own spiteful ends. I am, &c., Andrew Thompson.

    • Obituary: 21 Jan 1915, Maryborough Chronicle, Wide Bay and Burnett Advertiser, Queensland; OBITUARY It is with sincere regret that we have to record the death of yet another very old and highly esteemed pioneer of the district in the person of Mr Andrew Peter Jessen, who passed away peacefully yesterday afternoon, at the residence of his son-in-law Mr P. C. Andersen, Ferry Street. The deceased, who was just approaching the alloted span, having been born in August 1845, was a native of Tinningstedt, Schleswig and came out to Australia by the sailing boat "Beausite" in 1866. He took up his abode at Tiaro, where for some years he was engaged in dairying and agricultural pursuits. He subsequently removed to Goorah, via Gundiah, where he also wrung a livelihood from the land. He was a typical member of the old pioneering school and all his energies was directed to the development of the district in which he lived. He was amongst the first associated with the earliest development of the township of Wooroolin, during the construction of the Kingaroy line where he had erected several shops including a butcher's, baker's, grocer's and of fruit shops, in addition to a couple of dwelling houses. His first wife, with whom he reared a family of twelve, predeceased him fifteen years ago. He remarried a second time and had issue, two children. His first family consisted of Mr Andrew Jessen and Mrs P. Bundesen (Coolabunia), Mrs P. C. Andersen (Maryborough, late of the Great Western Hotel), Mrs Joe Wade, "Willowdale" (Gundiah), Mrs Geo. Lochran (Gympie), Mrs T. O'Leary, Miss Ingelina Jessen and Messrs Ludwig, Christian, Johann and Hans Peter (all of Wooroolin) and Niels Sophus (Goorah). His widow and remaining two children, Alice Maria and William George reside at Wooroolin. The deceased was a good father and a fond husband and much sympathy will be extended to his sorrowing family. His disposition was kindly and his friends many, and by his death a highly respected pioneer is removed from our midst. The body is being conveyed this morning to Gundiah by rail for interment at his old homestead, Goorah, where the funeral will leave at 3.30pm.

    Report of the 1890 flood
    "Mr. Andrew Jessen succeeded in saving seventy bags of maize".

    THE DEVASTATION AT TIARO.
    TIARO, February 1.
    The distance from Gympie to Tiaro by rail is about thirty nine miles. The train leaves Gympie at 7.35 a.m. and reaches Tiaro at 10 o'clock. The Line runs through pastoral country for the greater part of the distance, this, however, alternating with patches of Scrub at intervals during the first half. The cattle country comprises both classes in quality, first and second. There is a very small area of the first class, however. The greater part of the land is even lower than second-class pastoral. The alternating scrub patches are somewhat sour too, if one may judge from the indifferent character of the indigenous growth. Down the line from Gympie the indication of a recent or indeed of any flood are few, only when the train draws near to Tiaro are the recently inundated river flat opened up to the traveller.

    The district of Tiaro, which is the head centre of the agricultural industry of the Mary comprises some thirty-flve miles of the valley of the Mary, largely including the low lying flats on the banks of the river, with a greatest breadth of from one to three miles. This strip of soil possesses wonderful fertility. Nearly three decades have passed since man first began to make large drafts on the vitality of this land, and yet its powers of reproduction continue as unimpaired as ever. The reputed average yield of the Mary farms is about thirty-five bushels of maize to the acre. In good seasons this rises to sixty, seventy, and even eighty bushels! The past season has been phenomenal, and the settlers expected fully seventy bushels to the acre. They had looked forward to the prolific yeild of this good season for the redemption of their losses during the past three, the years of alternate drought and sudden flood. The energy of the district has been centred on the development of this crop; with the prospect of an early liquidation, the store bills assumed alarming dimension, and the farmers employed a little extra labour on the land.

    This was the condition of affairs in the valley of the Mary at the commencement of the late disastrous flood. The maize was nearly ripe, and a lot of potatoes quite ready for market still, remained in the ground. On the 24th and 25th January the flood came and swept nearly the whole of the crops away. The devastation has been almost absolute, a few bushels of maize here, and there out of an estimated outturn of 25,000 bushels only having beon saved. There was no back water silently working its way up the ridges, no still lakes in the low-lying flats nothing but a roaring, foaming torrent more than two miles wide pursuing its mad career unchecked towards the ocean.

    At this stage in her seaward course the Mary in flood time has gathered together a tremendous volume of water. starting from her source in the remotest recesses of the Blackall Banges, and fed by innumerable tributaries both large and small, she sweeps down to Gympie, a distance of over fifty miles. By the time Tiaro is reached another fifty miles of country has been traversed, and the flood demon travels on the wings of the wind in his career of destruction. Between here and Gympie the mighty torrent has gathered the waters of Wide Bay Greek, draining the Kilkivan and Widgee Ranges and Manna Creek, which is fed by the Dividing Range between the Burnett and the Mary. The watershed from the fall of the Burnett Bange towards the eastward is very steep, and the various tributaries deep and narrow. At the point where they join the Mary, the Wide Bay and Manna Creeks are, in flood time, formidable rivers themselves.

    At Tiaro the residents of twenty years state that the recent flood rose 6ft. higher than the flood of any past year within their recollection. The days on which the late flood was at its highest were Friday and Saturday. The Gympie flood, it will be remembered, rose on the preceding Thursday morning. At Tiaro, as near as I can judge by the marks on the banks, the river must have risen fully 70ft.! All along the banks large areas of land were swallowed by the torrent. Gaps of two, three, and four acres have, at intervals, totally disappeared. While the waters were subsiding these abnormal landslips were constantly taking place, accompanied by a noise like the roar of artillery. These slips are even in a minor degree, taking place while I write this letter.

    The Tiaro district produces maize, potatoes, oats, lucerne, setaria, sugar, and large quantities of fruit and vegetables. The supplies of both Gympie and Maryborough are drawn from this source. Maize is the staple product of the district, sugar being regarded as only a subsidiary growth. The farmers here profess a hearty contempt for sugar, regarded in the light of a profitable product. They state that many of the farmers hereabouts went broke in the olden days at sugar-growing. According to their own showing, it seems that several crushing mills were erected and the farmers were induced to plant a supply of cane to keep them going. Then, as the supply of cane went up, the price of it went down, and finally a number of the farmers "went under" completely. This is very many years ago; but to this day there are farmers who relate the bitterness of their early experiences in the then newly initiated sugar industry. Sugar, however, is still a minor product of the district, but, with one solitary exception, all the mills send their juice down the river by punt to bo manufactured at Yengarie,

    As regards the loses in the Tiaro district as a consequent upon the flood, I have chatted with several of the leading residents to-day. Mr. Jonathan Job, Storekeeper, who has a fine large place of business and a splendid stock, has lived at Tiaro since about 1870. He states that in past good seasons 12,000 bushels of maize have passed through his hands en route to market. Then he was only one of several agent. The total yield in such a year as that would certainly have amounted to 20,000 bushels. Since then more land has been planted, and the yield for the past season, the crop just destroyed by flood, was expected to be an extraordinary one. " Yes," he replied in answer to my question, " 25,000 bushels would be rather under than over the mark."

    One of the hotelkeepers, Mr. Nathan Frall also a twenty years' resident confirmed this view, as did also Senior - constable Pickering, a resident of the district during thirteen years. Certainly this loss has been enormous, more than two-thirds of the entire crop having entirely disappeared. Reckoning it on the basis of two-thirds?at 3s. 6d. a bushel, a moderately estimated value, we have at once a loss of about £3000 for one product alone, without counting the wholesale destruction of house property, and loss of clothing and implements. And the living expenses of the next next season, while the new crop is still growing, also must be added to the loss. From what I have seen and heard I think the total loss cannot be much under £8000 or £9000, not a wry large sum, perhaps, until the reader rsalises that it represents the total possessions, tbe result of yeas of industery and thrift, of at least two thirds of the settlers in these parts.

    Beginning with the details of the losses, Mr. W. C. Wilson, of Binbirrun, a sugar plantation fifteen miles from Tiaro, has lost about £1500, damage to crops of sugar and maize and injury sustained by the sugar mill. Johan Johnson, a farmer, has not only lost all his crops, but was also washed out of his house and had to seek refuge on a ridge to the rear. Most of this man's maize had been harvested and was stored in the barn prior to the flood. This, however, did not save it, crops, barn, and everything were swept away.

    As I said in my last letter, the whole of the settlers on the low lands around Diokabram, including Messrs. Tullooh, Jenkins, Lipsett, and others, have lost heavily; this land has always produced wonderful crops of maize.

    At Miva Crossing Hotel (Mr. J. Orphant's), fifteen miles from Tiaro, the flood waters entered the house, notwithstanding the fact that it stood on an unusually high bank. Very considerable damage was also effected here among the crops. Manna Creek empties into the river near here, and during the flood reached a far greater height than has ever been previously recorded. All the farms between Miva and Home Park, about twenty in number, had their crops washed away. Messrs. Biddell. Bros., of Brieyriam plantation, also lost a large qnantiy of fruit and produce.

    Coming nearer to the township of Tiaro, Mr. Cornwall, of Redbank, lost a large quantity of maize, potatoes, and lucerne. Mr. Stevens, of Haseldean, lost 6 acres of maize, and the water stood in his house to a depth of 2ft. Mr. Lawrence's 30 acres of orops arc all gone; these included maize, potatoes, and lucerne, and the land was completely covered with water. Mr. Nelleman, of Tiaro, is also a heavy loser.

    At the town ship of Tiaro the flood presented a scene of awful grandeur, from four to five miles of water being in sight; the river is stated to have been running at a speed of twenty miles, an hour.

    Mr. M. P. Neilsen, of Gootchie Creek, six miles distant from Tiaro, occupies a very low farm. He is thus a loser to some extent by even the slightest fresh and has been flooded no fewer than three times during the past twelve months. By the late flood this unfortunate man has lost 92 acres of maize. At Tiaro during the worst two days of the flood, Messrs. George Waldock, Robert and John Stevens, Robert Ewbank, Forbes, Douglas, G. Brims, and Senior-constable Pickering were indefatigable in their efforts to save life and property, and traversed, in boats the worst portion of the flooded country.

    Continuing the catalogue of disasters, Mr. Aaron Skinner, of Tiaro, has lost half his crops. Mr. Andrew Jessen succeeded in saving seventy bags of maize. Mr. Knudsen, of Good Hope, lost 40 aores of cultivation, maize, potatoes, and lucerne. Mr. H. Maslen saved 400 bushels out of 40 acres of splendid maize. Mr. N. Sorensen lost the whole of his crops, valued at £600. The whole of Mr. James Philpott's cultivation, between 20 and 30 acres, has also been destroyed. Mr. George Brun's, being situated on elevated land, has escaped with comparatively slight injury. Lower down the river Mr. S. G. Richards lost 15 acres of maize. This was a very heavy crop, many of the stalks had grown to a length of 15ft. Mr. Gysing saved 100 bushels out of 80 acres of maize. Mrs. Benstead saved 2 acres out of 20, the remainder being swept away.

    Mrs. James Rankin saved only about twenty bushells from a standing crop of 23 acres. Mr. Carruthers lost the whole of his crop as well as a large portion previously harvested, and would have lost his house by a large tree being swept against it had the latter not been fortunately arrested by some vines and fruit trees immediately above the house. Mr. Hall, of Aurora Sugar Plantation, has lost a large quantity of cane, the greater portion of his land being completely inundated.

    The Pioneer's Rest provisional schoolhouse, containing the library of the Pioneer School of Arts, was carried bodily down the river and deposited upside down in a grass paddock a quarter of a mile away from its original site. The books, valued at £50, were totally destroyed, as was also tho school furniture and fittings.

    Mr. A. Moffatt, of Hope farm, lost 1000 bushels of maize. Mr. Shellback lost 700 bushels, besides potatoes, lucerne, &c. Mr. J. Neilscn lout 800 bushels of maize. Mr. Henry Friss, of Myrtle Creek, 5 acres of maize and a lot of fencing. Mr. G. Phillpot, of Myrtle Grove, a large quantity of produce and 30 chains of new fencing. Mr. Sinclair, of Enniskillen, finds that his entire crop has gone; while his neighbour, Mr. Hansen, has lost half of his.

    In Wilson's Pocket, four miles from the township, the land lies very low, but is exceedingly rich. It has been occupied by several families, mostly Danes. In this locality the flood waters have ruined everything. Mr. Madson hns lost house, furniture, personal efects, in fact everything except the clothes he was wearing when the flood down; Among his losses there was also an apiary of fifty hives of bees. His furniture had been placed in a punt for safety, but during that memorable Friday night this frail bark either capsized or sank. This settler's loss alone would hardly be covered by £400.

    Charles Davy, another farmer, remained in his house with two other men until the last moment; having a punt on which he depended for safety. During the night the punt broke away, however, and these three men ran very great danger of being drowned. They were finally rescued by Mr. N. J. Torpey, an old naval pensioner, whose right arm still retains a remnant of its former vigour. Davy lost everything he possessed his property, it could hardly be replaced with £200.

    Drawing nearer to the township again, Mr. J. Hammill has lost some 5000 bushels of maize, 21 tons of hay, and 12 or 14 tons of potatoes. These losses will serve as an example of the absolute desolation which prevails in the district.

    Notes for the Den Kgl. Fødselsstiftelse
    Den Kgl. Fødselsstiftelse (Royal Birth Institution) was founded in 1750 and was a place where single woman could give birth anonymously in order to prevent the mothers from killing their babies. That is why the children have numbers and sometimes no parents 'Den Kgl. Fødselsstiftelse'
    Meaning of Den Kgl. Fødsesstiftelse: Den Kgl. = The Kgl. abbreviation for Kongelige = Royal Fødselsstiftelse is made up of two words - fødsels = birth ---- stiftelse = foundation (as in a charitable foundation) Fødselsstiftelsen (the Fødselsstiftelse) was an institution where unmarried women could have a child without revealing her own - or the child's father's name. It was not only for women to give birth, but also a place where could be left if unwanted and one could in the period 1771-1774 could leave a foundling in a box - and ring a bell -- and the institution could take care of - "adopt" - the child.
    The purpose of the institution were to unmarried mothers provide a safe haven and prevent the frequent infanticide. In 1910 moved it to the National Hospital. In 1750 Birth Foundation was created, and here women could birth anonymously and get free medical care. The aim was to prevent the killing of newborn babies and their mothers were promised anonymity to "forever". This rule was changed in 2007. The archive contains data on both the operation of the foundation and the women and children, who were assisted by the foundation. [Arkivet findes på Rigsarkivet. The archive is available on the Public Record Office Confir]

    Birth Foundation was established in 1750 and was responsible for three functions:

    Birth Institution, which provided maternity care.
    Care Institution that housed nursing wards where children got the first care.
    Opfostringsanstalten from which the children were exposed to foster parents or their own mothers on a weekly support.

    Since the foundation was established in 1750, it was also responsible for raising the children, who were left to the Foundation's assistance - known as foundlings. This task was taken over by the Royal Opfostringsstiftelse, established as an independent institution in 1770.

    From 1804 gathered foundations under the same management under the name Birth and Care Foundation. In 1910, the foundation placed under the hospital and became the maternity ward.
