  • 12 Jul 1926, LOST IN THE BUSH. Marysville Woman Missing.
    MARYSVILLE, Sunday.—Fears are entertained here for the safety of Miss Olive B Pitman, aged 39 years, who has been missing since Thursday. Miss Pitman, who is the proprietress of the Kooringa guest house, and is therefore known to a large circle of people, suffered from bad health two years ago, and eventually went to Melbourne for treatment. Returning on Monday her friends were glad to observe that apparently she was in excellent health, an impression which the succeeding days did nothing to destroy.
    After breakfast on Thursday morning, Miss Pitman left home without saying where she was going, but Mrs Pitman presumed that her daughter had gone to the cemetery to visit the grave of her father, who died a few months ago. As the walk to the cemetery takes at least 30 minutes, no anxiety was felt when she did not return before noon. As the hour for luncheon came and went without any sign of her daughter, Mrs Pitman became anxious and requested the assistance of Constable Barton. During the afternoon the constable searched the district without success, and in the evening he reported the matter to Mounted Constable Ware. He on Friday morning organised a search party, the efforts of which met with no better result than those of the previous day.
    The search was resumed on Saturday morning, and six miles out, on the Woods Point road, Constable Barton observed the marks of a woman's shoe. He was only able to follow the trail for a short distance as the heavy rain had washed out the tracks on the soft ground. The tracks were valuable as indicating the direction which had been taken by Miss Pitman, and when the black trackers who had been asked for arrived from Melbourne, they were driven in a car to the point where the imprints ended. The trackers immediately took up the trail, and went into the bush. Up to this evening nothing has been heard from them, nor have the police been able to find anyone who saw Miss Pitman after she had left the township.11
  • 13 Jul 1926, MISSING MARYSVILLE WOMAN. Large Search Party at Work. MARYSVILLE, Monday -In spite of continued efforts since daylight this morning by a large party, including black trackers, no trace has been found of Miss Olive Pitman, of Kooringa, who has been missing from her home since Thursday.12
  • 14 Jul 1926, MISSING MARYSVILLE WOMAN. Search Still Unsuccessful.
    MARYSVILLE, Tuesday - The efforts of a large search party to trace Miss Olive Pitman were again unsuccessful today.
    There were indications that Miss Pitman may have passed along the Woods Point road towards Cumberland Valley, but an exhaustive search in this direction has been without result. The trackers left the district last night, because after the heavy rain any tracks likely to have been of use have been obliterated.13
  • 17 Jul 1926, MISSING WOMAN. Search to be Continued.
    HEALESVILLE, Friday. - No trace has been found of Miss Olive B. Pitman, of Kooringa, Marysville, who has been missing from her home since July 8. For more than a week parties have scoured the bush, but the rugged nature of the country, combined with bad weather, has made the task difficult. A final effort is to be made on Sunday, when it is estimated that more than 100 men will thoroughly comb the country in the Cumberland territory, this being the last place where traces of the missing woman were followed. Constable W. Bartholomew, of Healesville, is organising a search party in that town, and several car loads of volunteers will leave early on Sunday morning to join forces with the Marysville searchers.14
  • 6 Dec 1929, LOST IN THE MOUNTAINS. DISAPPEARANCE RECALLED. Probate of Will Granted.
    The search in the mountainous country between Marysville and Wood's Point for 10 days in July 1926, for Olive Blakney Pitman, of Kooringa guest house, Marysville, whose whereabouts have not been discovered, and who is presumed to have died from exposure was recalled, by an application made to Mr Justice Wasley, in the Practice Court yesterday.
    Miss Gwendolyn De Burgh Pitman, of Kooringa, Marysville applied for probate of the will ... [article continues - hard to read]15
  • 11 Nov 1933, Ill-Fated Family
    Newenham Mueller Pitman, whose will has been lodged for probate, was the third of his family to die in tragic circumstances. He was found shot dead in his city office in August, and the Coroner returned a find of suicide, due to business worries. His will was made on November 11, 1931, shortly before his sister, Miss Gwendolyn De Burgh Pitman, was found fatally burned near her home at Marysville. In 1929 another sister wandered into the bush at Marysville and was never seen again. Pitman left estate valued at £3204 and directed that it be divided between his sister Gwendolyn and a life-long friend and, in the event of either pre-deceasing him, her share to go to a married sister, Persse Rosalind Stringer, of Hawthorn.16
  • 6 Feb 1939, SKULL FOUND - Marysville Mystery
    The disappearance of a woman from Marysville more than 12 years ago may be solved by the finding of a skull near Marysville on Saturday.
    In July, 1926, Miss Olive Pitman disappeared from Kooringa guest house, which was conducted by her family at Marysville. No trace of the woman was found at the time. Her family has since left the district.
    On Saturday Mr. K. Elmore, who was engaged on reconstruction at Anderson's No. 1 mill, which was burnt in the recent bush fires, noticed an eagle attacking something about a mile from Marysville.
    When he went to investigate he found that the eagle's prey was only a rabbit, but close by he found a human skull. The skull was the only part of the skeleton found, but a piece of steel, which appeared to be part of a corset, was near it.
    The skull appeared to have been exposed for many years. It is thought unlikely that it is part of the remains of a previously undiscovered victim of the recent bush fires. It will be sent to Melbourne for examination.17

  • 30 Apr 1924, CUSTODY OF CHILD. Father's Claim Fails.
    Before Mr. Justice Mann, in the Practice Court yesterday, an application was made on behalf of John Samuel Kirk, of Mordialloc, hairdresser, for the custody of his son Jack. It was stated that the child was at present in the custody of his mother, Mary Elizabeth Kirk, of Fitzroy street, St. Kilda. He is aged 13 years. The father is a Presbyterian, and the mother belongs, to the Roman Catholic faith Mr. Magennis (instructed by Mr. Sonenberg) appeared for Kirk; and Mr. Lowe (instructed by Mr. P. J. Ridgeway) for Mrs Kirk.
    After hearing evidence by the father and mother, Mr. Justice Mann said it would not useful, and it might be mischievous, for him to express an opinion with regard to the conduct of the husband or wife. On the evidence the welfare of the child would best be served by not disturbing his present custody. On counsel giving an undertaking that reasonable access would be given to the father, he would make no order.14
