Dunwich cemetary contains the graves of 26 passengers who died of typhus on their journey from Plymouth to Moreton Bay, on the Emigrant, in 1850. The cemetery also contains the graves of Dr BALLOW, and Dr MITCHELL, who both died providing medical treatment to those passengers.
Dr MALLON contracted a fever after his initial contact with the passengers at the Dunwich Quarantine station.
When he recovered, he worked as Dr BALLOW’s assistant in the Quarantine Station. He provided treatment to the last of the Emigrant’s typhus patients after Dr BALLOW’s death.
Dr BARTON became Brisbane’s next Resident Surgeon.
