when Robrt Leeder Charkson died it was recorded he was a "squatter"
He started as a sheep farmer with his brother Joseph but then got into mining. After he got married he moved to Peak Hill, Coolgardie in 1903 and from there in 1906 he went to Meekatharra. (mining)
I'm not sure when he went to Dongara. He died in Dongara.
that is a very interesting note about the Greenough Cemetery
I am also a descended of the Clarkson. Thought I would let you know that the details for Barnard Clarkson are incorrect. The ones shown here are for Michael, James and Williams' Grandfather. Their father was Barnard born Oct 1774 Bubwith Yorkshire England died 13 April 1836 WA. The boys Grandfather also Barnard was born 7 Sept 1774 Bubwith Yorkshire died 23 Jan 1826 Bubwith Yorkshire. Barnard married Deborah Wilberfoss 15 June 1773 Budwith(she had previously be married to Marmaduke Guy) hope this helps
