At Cairns Family History - check against their card catalogue doesn't show this inscription. This suggests the plaque was installed after 1983-4. Cairns council's "new" system is about 18 months old. Previous data location unknown. (May need to FUP Brisbane archives)

Council records (microfiche at Cairns Family History) show she was an Old Age Pensioner and that the plot cost £5.

Discussion with Aileen suggests that the info on the death certificate would be the sort of details that would have been supplied to the hospital on admission.

Dr Morses Indian Root Pills were a US imported patent medicine. Extensively advertised all over the country, the ads in different localities seem to cite local users. Elizabeth Daniels features in ads placed in the The Northern Miner several times between 1913 and 1915.
