 Peggy Lambert (identified as Margaret Kirkness on the death certificate of her daughter Jane Rogers), born around 1830, pictured here about 1860. Peggy died in 1884 and was buried on the day the railway opened in Mudgee. She often expressed a wish to be buried in a tree, according to the native custom, but her last resting place is in an unmarked grave in Rylstone cemetery.
