    • From Records of Early Riverton and District, Centenary Celebrations, Riverton N.Z., 1837-1937, page 130:
      Another who became a resident in Danieltown was James Molloy, the eldest of the second generation of Molloys, whose families became so numerous and so much associated with the vicinity that I have heard it said that the name should be changed to Molloytown.
    • James Molloy, one of the early settlers to Gummies Bush, has passed away at the residence of his daughter, Mrs A Beck, Lochiel. Deceased spent many years in Western Australia on the sheep stations there, where he married. Jim was a quiet industrious man and a good neighbour, retaining the respect of a large circle of friends.
