After living in Zions hill for awhil Henry Laxton went with a Mister Westaway and a few others and a head of cattle to a town on the north coast calle Bli Bli. While he was away his wife Sarah died as far as we know it was giving birth to Henry and also another child died at age three. They were burried with their mother in the same grave at Nundah Historical Cementry here in Brisbane Australia. He (Henry laxton) moved to a place called Glenview on the Sunshine Coast.
