Image Right - Jervis Bay - Green Patch - August 1977 - Harriet Parker's Grave
"In 1887, Kate Gibson (the principal lightkeeper's daughter), tripped while skylarking with a loaded firearm. The gun discharged, striking her friend Harriet Parker (the assistant lightkeeper's daughter) in the back of the skull, killing her instantly. Her gravesite can be found in the Green Patch camping area. " https://www.flickr.com/photos/archivesact/5544588260/in/photostream/
