Birth

Tucked away between Laidley and Gatton is a vibrant little town with just so much to offer. Situated six kilometres south of the Warrego Highway, Forest Hill has an unspoiled boutique feel, reflected in its quality gift shops and tastefully renovated buildings.

Originally part of a large rural 'run', the area around Forest Hill was sub-divided into small farms in the 1880s. By the early 1900s Forest Hill was thriving and growing more produce than the older Gatton and Laidley settlements. Forest Hill was Australia's largest produce distribution centre in the early 1900s.

Personal History:

Elizabeth (Beth) born Forest Hill, Started school Forest 1907, grew up in many railway towns around Queensland. Her father, Bill Miers a Station Master, loved the sea and he spent his holidays fishing while Beth and other family members playedon the sea shore. When a teenager at Wallumbilla Beth's mother was very strict and tried to stop her daughter from seeing Dick Harvey. Dick was considered unsuitable because of his wild ways. Beth would sneak out and sit with Dick on a log near the Wallumbilla Railway Station while he waited to load meat on to the train for delivery to their Roma shop. When some bright spark burnt their log Muriel somehow found out and Beth was sentt o Suratt by Cobb and Co coach to work as a governess. Beth said that she could not stay there because of the goings on and returned to Wallumbilla. Beth was this time sent to stay with her Aunt Minnie and Uncle John Miers at Southbrook nearPitts worth, not far from Toowoomba to keep the couple apart. Dick was out droving when he got word from Beth that she had obtained her father's consent to marry. Dick left the herd and caught the next train to Southbrook near Pittsworth. The couple continued on to Stanthorpe where they were married in MrR ichard Thompson's residence. They returned to Wallumbilla then on to Chadford where they settled down to a new life together. Life was hard clearing land and burning out stumps which Beth said looked like the lights of a city at night. They would harness the sulky and drive into the dances with their young children to Wallumbilla or Chadford returning home just in time to do the morning milking. They said these were some of their happiest times. After three boys the fourth child was the girl that Beth had alwayswa nted (a second daughter was to follow later at Kuraby). Beth used all her persuasive powers to get Dick to leave the West and go to Brisbane where she said that her children would have a future. Land was purchased at Kuraby (now Underwood) where they spent the remainder of their lives. Beth had astr oke in 1968, a second stroke twelve months later which took her life. Beth was sadly missed by family and friends.birth No 01/ 008484
