Hannah Pearl Simpson

Hannah Pearl Simpson (nee Rogers)
Born December 15th, 1915
Manildra, NSW

 

" I really ner say bad things about anyone"
Pearl was born at Manildra, a small farming community on the banks of Mandagery Creek between Orange and Parkes.  She lived her life close by at Molong where she and husband William ran a farm and raised their four children.

Pearl loved the farm.  Here she tended a flock of one hundred chickens, whose eggs she'd sell on the railway to Orange.  Pearl proudly boasted collecting each of the one hundred eggs a day (disappointingly only 99 on occasion) and to having never broken a single one, which payed for the children's bus fare to school and the family's groceries.

Pearl lived a clean life.  She didn't drink or smoke, and never said a bad word about others; "If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all."  She loved her church and believed in the power of a positive attitude.
