Friday February 24, 2017.

After a very twisting road from Bairnsdale to Omeo, we drove on to Benambra where we visited the Cemetery. We had no directions so Barry stopped at the general store in Benambra where they gave him instructions on how to find the cemetery. We were told to drive about 1.5 Ks along the Bitumen road to the Limestones. We followed these directions and could not find the cemetery until we retraced our trail and realized that the cemetery was tucked in behind a grove of Cyprus trees.

Being in the country with live stock around, the cemetery was bordered by a fence with a gate that was chained. We remembered to shut the gate and replace the chain once we were inside.

There were two sides to the cemetery which did not appear to be denominational. Their were Prendergast/Pendergast family in both sections.

We spent the afternoon photographing as many Pendergast/Prendergast graves as we could find. We hope we did not miss any
