This article from The Argus on 9 May 1901 concerns my great grandmother Eliza Pummeroy who was left destitute upon the death of her husband. I had never known she faced the courts in an application for relief. Her children did end up in care for a while, until after Eliza remarried. Not only does this article tell about her struggle but also fills in a lot of the detail on the death of her husband Alfred.
