"...Another family from the famed expedition was the Ros family. This family settled in the Guildford area in Sydney, and when Vito Loscocco, a sailor working on coastal ships, went to Sydney in 1883 to be presented with a gold medal for his part in a rescue on the Clarence River, he met Miss Virginia Ros, whom he later married. Mr Loscocco became a pilot boatman in Newcastle and was involved in another rescue, that of the 'Adolphe', at the entrance of Newcastle harbour, in 1904. He lived at the Pilot Terrace, Parnell Place, Newcastle, with his family until his death in 1916. ..."
