The Grave of Stella Marron

On my photographic wanderings, I came across this old photo of the grave of little Stella Marron, from the John Etkins Collection at the State Library of Victoria. Nothing was known about the grave location or the child in the description. So, it is the grave of Stella Veronica Marron, daughter of Patrick Ambrose Marron and Catherine McKeand. Born in 1900 at Booleroo Centre, South Australia, she died of epilepsy on May 14, 1903. Her grave, as shown in the photo, is located at Pekina St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Cemetery, corner of Booleroo Road and Bouda Hut Road. A much larger version of the photo is available from the State Library of Victoria. Click Here (Tif, 3896 x 5767, 64.3m).
