From the Launceston Examiner of Tuesday 10 Dec 1895, p5:
"DEATH OF AN OLD COLONIST.-On Thursday last there passed away to her rest another of the early pioneers of the colony, Mrs Christian Buist, of Pituncarty, at the ripe age ef 97. The end was not altogether unexpected by her relatives and friends, as she had been very feeble for some time and during the preceding week was confined to her bed. She passed quietly away without any apparent suffering. Notwithstanding her great age she retained in a surprising degree nearly to the last her mental vigour and her warm interest in the concerns of her friends and the movements of her surroundings and time. Mrs Buist was a colonist ot fully 72 years' standing, having left Scotland with her father, the late George Taylor, in 1822, arriving in Tasmania in January, 1823. when she settled at Pituncarty, on the Macquarie river, where she spent the remainder of her long and useful life. So at last has passed away, after a long pilgrimage, one whose charaster-strong, tender, and true-was a felt influence in the district, and made a very definite Christian impresion on all with whom she came into contact. Mrs Buist was a member and a warm friend of the Presbyterian Church at Kirklands, and deeply interested in the large movements of the Christian world beyond. Her Christian character and marked individualty are well and truly summed up in the words of a friend, who knew her long and intimately, and who writes :-' Kirklands will be a changed place to me now that she is gone. She was to me a very interesting and picturesque personality-a fine specimen of a Scotch woman of the old school - the last representative known to me of a type that is all but extinct. What force of dcharacter she had, and how much genuine warmth and tenderness there was beneath her reserved exterior. I particularly admired her sterling rugged truthfulness, honesty, and sincerity, and her stern resolute disapprobation of what she believed to he wrong. She was simply incapable of speaking or acting otherwise than she thought and felt, nor would she wink at anything that her conscience condemned. She had a deep reverence for divine things, and her piety was humble, unpretending and sincere." The funeral took place on Saturday, when a large number of relatives and friends accompanied the remains to the Kirklands Cemetery. The Rev. R. M. Fergus conducted special services at Kirklands and Epping on Sunday, preaching from the text, "O death, where is thy sting, O grave, where is thy victory ?" Mrs Buist is survived by her only remaing daughter, Mrs William Bayles, of Toorak, Victoria."

George Taylor died on 11 November 1826 at Campbell Town, TasmaniaG. From the Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser, p3, 17 November 1826:
"ANOTHER MURDER.
Since writing the above, and just as our paper was going to press, we were informed by a Gentleman, in whose statement we can place the utmost veracity, that another cruel and barbarous murder has been perpetrated by the Natives. The unfortunate victim is Mr. George Taylor, (son of Mr. Robert Tay lor), who, it will be recollected, was wounded in an attack made, by some bushrangers upon his father's house, but who were beaten off, and two either killed or wounded. Mr. Taylor, thus unfortunately cut off in the prime of life, it appears, was speared and beaten with waddies about the head, in a most shocking manner. We shall perhaps be enabled to give further particulars in our next.
We regret also to have to state, that the poor old shepherd, belonging to Mr. Gilles, alluded to in the foregoing article, has since died of his wounds.3
