Biography:
Francis Roy Cahill was the first son of Richard Cahill and Ellen and was born at Coldstream in 1898. In 1916 he enlisted in the AIF and the Lilydale Express published a lengthy article on his farewell held at the Gruyere School. About 50 or 60 residents were at the farewell. Cr. Burgi spoke about the war effort and hoped to be present to welcome Private Cahill home safe and sound. On behalf of the Gruyere residents he presented Private Cahill with a handsome inscribed wristlet watch, a fountain pen and from the shire a wallet.

W. A. Morris from the Lilydale Citizens’ committee presented him with a cutlery kit and spoke about the war effort. W. Cooper suggested an honour roll for Gruyere State School for other past students who enlisted such as William McClusky, Robert and Duncan McColl, E. Gray and A. Ostrom. Two former students were killed at the landing Olle and Roberts; other residents serving included Streets (3) and Jim Dunleavey. . . . Private Cahill returned thanks while his father Mr Richard Cahill jun. spoke feelingly. Many musical items were rendered including a recitation by Miss Winnie Brierty. . . .

Death notification:
Mr Daniel Cameron, a very old colonist of Victoria, passed away at his residence, Main Street, on Wednesday evening. Mr Cameron, who had attained the age of 86 years, has been in feeble health for some considerable time, and death was due practically to the maladies attendant upon old age. [Lilydale Express 05-01-1906 pg 2]
Biography:
Daniel Cameron was born in 1819 on the family farm at Dunblane, Perthshire, Scotland. He joined the police force soon after finishing his schooling and by the age of 30 was superintendent of B Division of the City of Glasgow. He was offered the post of Chief Superindent if he would marry. He refused and retired from the force in September 1852. He arrived in Melbourne on January 10, 1853 and took up gold mining. He tried his luck at Bendigo, McIvor and Barker’s Creek but failed. On hearing of the rush on the Ovens he took up a tent and supplies and set up business at Beechworth. He fell out with fellow shop keepers so took up mining and became a gold buyer for the Bank of NSW. Each week he had to deliver his shipment of gold to Melbourne but was never robbed.
The miners encouraged him to stand for colony’s first Parliament and he became the MLC for Ovens from December 1855 – March 1856 and the MLA Ovens November 1856 – March 1857 when he resigned. There has been much written about Cameron at Beechworth. As the story goes, he was mounted on a horse at Woolshed fitted with golden horseshoes and rode down the Main St at Beechworth. A monument was erected there in 1954 to mark the incident.
However his obituary published in the Lilydale Express puts paid to that story saying the parade went ahead but Cameron wasn’t there as he labelled the idea ‘barbarous rot” and left for Albury the day before. He struck it rich at Beechworth but never lost the urge to find more. He went to interstate and New Zealand goldfields before finally settling at Lal Lal, Warburton. He later sold his property and moved to Lilydale for the last few years of his life. He was unmarried and all his family remained in Dunblane. He owned property in Main St Lilydale.

Samuel and Sarah Cottingham bought land at Mt Evelyn in 1894 and built 'Holly Lodge' which may be the oldest in Mt Evelyn to survive largely intact. They were strict Baptists and held Temperance Society meetings at their home. Their home was thought to be a stopping place for Cobb and Co coaches on the way to Marysville. Samuel who came from New Zealand, grew daffodils on the land. A number of large trees still in the garden may date from this period, including a magnolia and a holly, which the owners believe to be more than 100 years old.
