In part:

"Anne BUTLER was born 1843 at Pelican, on the Manning River, to John & Matilda BUTLER. Anne died on the 30th September, 1922 at Manning River District Hospital, Taree. Anne’s mother, Matilda was a local Biripi Aboriginal lady. John Butler was a timber getter and entered the Manning Valley as early as 1830. The timber getters were known to have cohabited with the Aboriginal women."

Publication: Manning River District Hospital, Taree, NSW.
Note: There is inconsistency with Anne's birth date and parentage. Toni Schaper in her story of Anne Butler & William McClymont for the 'Valley of Rivers', has Annie being born in 1843 and dying on 30 September 1922. This would make her 79 years of age at the time of her death. Her death registration includes the information that she was 70 years of age at the time of her death. This would have her born about 1852. The Pre 1860 Pioneer Register does not include a year of her birth. Yet if she was born in 1852, then this would mean that she was only 10 years of age at the time of the birth of Sarah Jane (1862-1946). Or 12 years old when Agnes Jessie was born. Toni Schaper has Sarah as not being the daughter of Annie, but the daughter of Sarah Carter with William as her father. Sarah Carter is said to have died shortly after Sarah's birth. Toni Schaper refers to Annie earlier working in the household of William McClymont to care for his daughter, Sarah after the death of her mother.

This shows her birth as 2 Nov 1862.

Note: The Pre 1860 Pioneer Register Book 1 at 356 has Sarah as the child of William Henry Ralston McCLYMONT and Annie BUTLER. This is also the information contained in the Death Certificate of Sarah. The informant was her daughter Ethel, so clearly Ethel was of the view that Annie BUTLER was Sarah's mother and not Sarah CARTER. But Ethel included that Sarah was 22 years of age when she married. This would have Sarah Born about 1865. Yet Ethel also states that Sarah was 83 years of age at the time of her death which supports her birth details shown. Also supporting her birth details shown is her stated age at the birth of her son John Alexander.
