Latitude: -27.92877, Longitude: 152.66198

Notes:
A property at 272 Kulgun Road, Obum Obum has a large macadamia nut tree near the front gate. This is where the graves of eight people are believed to be located. There are no headstones or grave markers.

A larger area was a farm once owned by Carl Edward Düsing and Wilhelmine Düsing (née Erdman). The last known burial was of Wilhelmine Düsing who died 13 May 1913 aged 81. The first known burial was Carl Welge who died 31 May 1872 aged 2½ years. The next was Carl's mother, Frederike Welge, daughter of Edward and Wilhelmine Düsing on 6 Jan 1873.

Carl Welge died 31 May 1872, aged 2½ years
Frederike Welge died 6 Jan 1873, aged 21 years
Agnes Wenck died 18 Nov 1892, aged 30 minutes
Augusta Agnes Wenck died 1 Apr 1894, aged 5 days
Sophia Emma Wenck died 24 March 1895, aged 5 hours
Emma Augusta W E Wenck died 23 Jan 1897, aged 25 years
Carl Edward Düsing died 28 Aug 1906, aged 82 years
Wilhelmine Düsing died 13 May 1913, aged 81 years

The reason for the Wenck burials here would have been that because of disagreements with the local Lutheran Churches which had an associated cemetery, the Wenck family were not members of any church congregation and therefore would not have been permitted to bury relatives in the church cemetery.
