S.M.F. Jones was raised in an affluent middle class family atmosphere. She was affectionately known to all as Sophie and had a happy and pleasant childhood. Sophie met and married a promising young solicitor DJ. Newton of Sydney. At first they oung couple were very happy and their first child Muriel Gertrude was horn the flowing year. DJ.Newton took his family to Grenfell in September 1877 and set up a practice there. It was here their second child Norbert Forbes was born. In 1878DJ. Newton set up practise in Main Street, Lithgow. Here DJ did a strange thing which was to change their lives forever. There appears to be no reason other than financial (however David Joseph did not gain personally from this transaction) by "DJ's" forging the signature "Deputy Registrar of Deeds for Leasehold lands" on a Title Document. The fact remains that he was to pay such a high price while saving so little other than the cost of the Government transaction fee. David Joseph Newton was bought to trial on the 29 of January 1880 at the Sydney Quarter Sessions and he was sentenced on the 2 Februaryto two years hard labour at Darlinghurst Goal. This publicity of this trial no doubt made Mr Peachman question the authenticity of his divorce document. In September 1878 he engaged "DJ" and an order of dissolution of marriage ("DJ" had forged the judge's signature and charged a fee of 40)on the 19 November 1879. Mr Leachman said he became suspicious when his divorce did not appear in the paper. "DJ" was brought to trial (while still in goal) on the 9 August 1880, convicted by the jury and convicted to two more years inDarlinghurs t Goal.

Sophie met William Lang don an engineer in Sydney before he left to construct a sugar mill at Mourilyan Harbour in North Queensland. Sophie married William at Townsville in 1886 before returning to Mourilyan where Sophie's two children were to join them . They lived there for a time and left in February 1887 as evident by an inscribed silver lug presented to William Langdon on his departure. Their first child Milverton Payne was born in 1888. William Lang don tried his hand as a Planter at Pyramid near Cairns. There were Chinese servants in the house and Kanaka's in the sugar fields. Most of their stores, clothes and certain foods were sent out from England as the towns were quitesma ll in those days. William was out driving with his two stepchildren through the fields in a buggy when they experienced trouble from the Kanaka's. Telling the children to climb under the seat he whipped the horses into a gallop to escapefrom the angry mob. This was too much for Sophie so she sent Norbert to school in Sydney and Muriel was sent Townsville out of harms way. William and Sophie moved to Strathpine where there was a small sugar mill. Their next move was to Annerley where their second child Harold Forbes was born but sadly he died soon after. William's next job was at Cudgen in 1891/2 just behindKingsc liffe (The brick chimney from this mill was still standing in 1935. To get there they travelling first to Southport, from there the coach had to travel mainly along the beach as there was no road. When they came to a creek or river thepassenger s were ferried across while the coach went upstream to a suitable crossing collecting the passengers on the other side. After Cudgen the family went to the sugar mill at Beenleigh close to where the Rum Distillery now stands. After Beenleigh William Lang don become licensee at the "Prince of Wales Hotel" at Nundah. The family lived here in a separate house so that their children would not be influenced by the hotel patrons. It was in this "Prince of Wales Hotel"wher e Sophie's only surviving brother William Norbert,died. After William Langdon's death Sophie moved from boarding house to boarding house all over Brisbane. She declared each one heavenly until she found some fault or other with the owners or the building itself. Her son Norbert Forbes helped outfinan cially and looked after her interests. When the unfortunate occurred ending Sophie's life Norbert Forbes was away on a business trip in Melbourne. Sophie is said to have had fair hair, blue eyes and a fair completion. She purchased her shoes from "Marks and Spencer" always wearing lace-up boots. She was also a great lover of music playing the piano fluently. Musical evenings were aspecia lity in the Langdon household as it had been in the home of her parents. .Her piano is now with her granddaughter in Victoria. Sophie also gave as a wedding gift to her niece Edith McDonald embroidery that she had completed in about 1900 of Christ walking on Water. Belonging to Ngaire Cooper, Edith's daughter whoha s it now, says that it is as bright today as was when it was made. Sophie was apparently an accomplished needle woman who loved tapestry crochet work. Ngaire also has a small crocheted purse in white cotton that Sophie made/
