Just adding a bit extra to the entries about Long Marsh Dam, the never completed, very abandoned dam and accompanying "settlement" in the middle of the bush that we visited in 2011.

There is a lonely bush grave, of a worker who was killed on site, Thomas Collins, aged 36. This is him. Looked him up to see if there was any (easy) way to find out who was working there, but if you ignore that rather large final entry, the only indication is a possible "L M" in the "Station of Gang" entry. The records of men on either side of him don't have this, so they weren't allocated on the basis of ship either. It might have been an interesting thing to follow up on :)
