The late Mrs Unthank Another Old Resident of Somerville Passes [Newspaper Article] — Frankston & Somerville Standard — 22 July 1921
The late Mrs Unthank Another Old Resident of Somerville Passes Following the decease of Mrs Grifith on Sunday, 10th inst., at the ripe age of 91 years, came the pass- ing away of another old resident who had also outlived the allotted span by many years. This occurred on Sunday, 17th inst,, at the residence of her son. Mr Joseph Unthank, "Merrivale," Somerville. Mrs Un- &nbsp; thank was born 89 years ago, at Horsham, Sussex, England. Her father was a farm laborer, earning 12/6 per week, which had to suffice for the support of the family. Just about 70 years ago Mrs Unthank de- cided, like many others, to try her fortune in new lands across the seas, and took passage in a ship called the "'Statesman.'' Previous to sailing from Southampton, the vessel was for some days delayed. This had a dis- astrous effect on the lender purse of our friend, who on landing in Mel- bourne some months later found her self with only a few pence to start life afresh. However, with courage and ene...

"Those.were the days," one observed, and the other agreed. "Hastings were invin- &nbsp; cible in those roaring days," remar- ked the Hastings veteran. His chest puffed out with pride, as he pointed to "Nipper" Floyd, and said,. 'Ah, he was a great lad in those days." The Frankstonite agreed, but, not to be outdone, reminded his, old oppon- ent that one season the only time that Hastings were defeated the feat was achieved by Frankston!
