Biographical notes: Fannie came to Australia from London, England, with her sister Emily on the ship Merkara. The sisters were classed as 'free passengers' and listed as domestic servants in 1891. Four years later, Fannie was among the first 82 women who enrolled to vote in the Northern Territory. Fannie was married three times. With her first husband, Michael Ryan Cody, she travelled to Wandi, Northern Territory and opened a hessian store to take advantage of the boom goldfield town. Michael died at Wandi in 1897. Fannie then married Thomas George Crush at the Registry Office, Wandi on the 3 August 1898. Fannie and Tom moved to the mining community of Brock's Creek where they built the Federation Hotel, which was officially opened in 1900. Three years later Tom died of heart failure. Fannie's third marriage was to Henry Haynes, a grazier. Fannie owned and managed the Federation Hotel until the Second World War arrived in Darwin and she was evacuated to Sydney to live with her sister. Fannie died in Sydney in 1945.
