3-Rhoda Mary Appleby was born on 23 Dec 1870 in Westbury, Tasmania, died on 6 Oct 1938 in Ulverstone, Tasmania at age 67, and was buried in Ulverstone, Tasmania.

They had three children:

Rhoda Mary Smith

At the very early age of 16, Rhoda married John Smith at the Wesleyan Church in Deloraine, on the 31st August, 1887. John was a farmer and was 23 years old. Rhoda and John lived at Mole Creek for a time in a house on the side of the hill above Den Plains, later moving to Northdown and then to Barron Hill onto a property known as "Wattle Grove".

Rhoda and John were not able to have children of their own, so adopted a son whom they named Albert, who was killed while on active service during the First World War, and 2 daughters, Doris and Gladys. The family moved to Ulverstone for a few years where John ran a livery stable behind Furners Hotel, hiring coaches and horses to both locals and tourists. John also groomed horses and polished and treated saddlery.

Their move back to "Wattle Grove" in late 1920's was short-lived as John died suddenly while talking to friends by the roadside. Rhoda returned to Ulverstone, opening a tearoom in King Edward Street. Rhoda Mary passed away in October, 1938. Both Rhoda and John are buried at Ulverstone.
