  • 25 Dec 1907: NEW NARRE WARREN. On Friday last, Mr. Ernest Hillbrich sustained a serious loss through a disastrous fire which broke out in his barn, completly destroying it and about 40 tons of first class hay, one of the finest hay crops, in this district. The fire rapidly spread to his cowshed which was speedily razed to the ground. Fortunately the chaff works and the dwelling house were saved by the fire-fighters. The buildings, which belonged to Mr. Sweeney, were insured, but Mr. Hillbrich's loss is a severe one, considering the price hay is this season. The fire is supposed to have been caused by spontaneous combustion.12
  • 4 Nov 1914: Another old and respected resident of this district passed away last week in the person of Mr Ernest Hillbrich. The old gentleman, who was 72 years of age, was a resident of Narre Warren for nearly 50 years, but for some time past he has been residing at Ascot Vale. His father took up land at Narre Warren in the early days, in fact he was amongst the first settlers in that district, and after his decease, the property was taken over by Mr Ernest Hillbrich. In those days there were no railways, and all marketable produce had to be carted into Melbourne. Leaving the farm Mr Hillbrich went to Emerald for a time, and about two years ago he left the district to take up his residence at Ascot Vale, being tendered a farewell by the local Church of Christ, of which he was a member. During his long residence here he made many friends, and the news of his death was received with regret by all. His illness was a short one, extending over a week, and was due to paralysis. He leaves a widow, and four sons and two daughters to mourn their loss.
    His remains were interred in the Harkaway cemetery on Friday afternoon, the funeral being a
    fairly large one. An impressive service was conducted at the grave by Mr Horace Kingsbury, of the Church of Christ.13
