The "Guest", George Wilken, was my great grandfather, and the farmer at Waterside of Forbes. He married Barbara Wilson, daughter of Andrew Wilson (the late farmer at Waterside) and Margaret Wilson (whose maiden surname was also Wilson), in Waterside Cottage on 31/08/1871. His wife Barbara died shortly after giving birth to their son Andrew George Wilken (see also comments on "Toast List") in 1873.
