(contact LynneHuxleylane about this story)

PURNAWILLA station was bought by my Cousin, Mr Cecil Johnson, I think in the 60,s. He was a Son of Mrs Nita Johnson and Mr Arthur Johnson of COPAGO Station, both properties in Wilcannia. When my Aunty Nita the last survivor of Copago passed on, I believe the property was put in the hands of Cecil's two Sons. Visited Copago on numerous occasions with my Father who was Nita,s only Brother who had worked on Copago for many years prior to going to the 2nd world War. I was most distressed to hear that both Copago & Purnawilla were in a state of disrepair, as. COPAGO was known as "" the Showplace"" of the west for many years, and was renowned for their Merino -Sheep and fleece quality. If anyone knows anything about these properties, especially Copago I would love to know, thanks in anticipation. Lynne. I have a photo of Copago * I will post when I work out how!!!!. Have some funny stories to share, like Cecil walking with a limp, his Father Arthur shot him in the leg because he was always running away from his mum my Aunt Nita, Arthur was tired of this so said to him ....:-):-):-) run away from your Mother again and I will stop you, Cecil did. And Uncle Arthur did....true to his word.
