    Notes 
    • Thomas Moody was born in Omagh, Tyrone, in Northern Ireland in 1861. He came to Queensland in 1877, aged 16. In 1883 he married his wife, Mary, in Townsville. The children of the marriage were Mary Jane, Barbara, Thomas, William, George, Sam and Bert.
      Thomas was killed (fractured skull) in a fall from a horse whilst taking part in a race near Herberton.
      The Moody homestead was the first home constructed over Granite Creek in Mareeba and was situated on the southern side of what is now known as Starcke Street and faced Granite Creek. Today a street named Moody Street is in the vicinity. There waas a well beside the house for drinking water with a large mango tree covered with bougainvillea near it. The family owned land situated at the back of the current golf course extending across One, Two, Three and Four Mile Creeks which feed intto the Mitchell River. They had stockyards and ran cattle. With horse teams they carted timber from the Atherton Tableland to the sawmill in Mareeba. The sawmill, owned by the Jamieson family, was situated on the northern side of Keeble Street where QRX (Queensland Rail) now has a rail siding.
      During the time Tom Moody snr was a teamster, a timber worker accidentally cut himself with an axe and, due to his workmates having little knowledge of first aid, bled to death. As a result of the incident Tom pressed the timber workers and locals to learn the rudiments of first aid and, as an incentive to learn, donated the timber for an ambulance building at Atherton. A plaque to his memory is embedded in the cement wall of the Atherton Ambulance building.
      Descendants of this family, third, fourth, fifth and sixth generations still living in Mareeba are too numerous to mention individually. They include some members of the Moody, Jones, Moore, Trimble, MeFarlane, Pollard, Cetinich, Gear, Brady, Malcolm, Vohland and Martin families.
