    Notes 
    • Timepiece Record

      When the late Mr. John Dyer was leaving the Geelong district in the year 1878 for the Omeo district, he purchased in that town an eight-day striking clock, and when he, with his wife and family took up residence on the Morass Creek, near Benambra, the clock was set going in their new home. It is still keeping accurate time in "Greenvale," the old home on the Morass, and has been going for 65 years. During that long period it has only once needed repairing. When purchased, it cost some where about thirty shilling.
