      How they met and how she got to Gournama for the marriage is unknown. She came from the Goulburn area, but may have been in Sydney. The trip to Warialda and on to Gournama station had to be taken by carriage or horseback. After their marriage, she and George established their home at Gournama, the large pastoral concern in the Warialda area being managed by George. Sadly, Alice Clara died at only 27 years, on 17th June, 1878.
