REF 1359 HERMINE M BOERIO DAVYHURST
The deceased child was one of six children born to the Boerio couple, who were married in Perth in 1899 (Marriage Reg.No.1167/1899). Sadly, only two children appear to have survived past 19 months of age. Those who lived to adulthood were Frederick R.J., who was born 1900 but died as a youth in 1916 at Laverton. The other was Elena F.E., who was born in 1903 and died in 1993 at Bunbury. She married in Coolgardie in 1925.
The remaining three little children were Adolph Mulline born 1900, died aged 3 months; Erna Pearl, born 1905, died aged 1 year, 7 months; Annie Christine, born March 1906, died June 1906. Rudolph, Annie and Erna also appear in this website.
Mr Boerio appears in several newspaper articles for various court appearances and in early 1906 was to be deprived of the mail contract, despite the fact that he had given a punctual and excellent service to the people of the district.
Boerio was one of the rival coach proprietors plying between Goongarrie and Davyhurst who had apparently
tired of the five shilling fare and began to extract ten shillings a head from the travelling public.
About that same time, the Roads Board had found out that he had been driving three abreast (which seemingly is contrary to the Board's by-laws) and dragged him into Menzies where he was fined heavily for the offence.
Altogether, it was concluded that Boerio was having quite a bad time of it.
John Baptiste died in 1930 at Mt Margaret. His wife died in 1938 at Kalgoorlie.
Little Hermine had suffered her fatal condition for 1 month prior to her death.
