9 According to Faith Boxold, Lottie died at Lynton Cottage Hospital, Lynton, North Devon, England. She was living with Wal and Marg, at their present home 'The Falls', 22 Tors Road, Lynmouth, and had a stroke. She was moved to the hospital at Lynton, but rallied a bit and was moved to a home for elderly people. She then had another stroke, from which she died.

There was a flood at Lynmouth in 1952, caused a lot of damage throughout the place, and it undermined the house that mum and dad were living in. They were running a Private Hotel and they and their guests had to take refuge in the upper rooms. All their personal posessions were in the basement which was flooded and filled with rocks and boulders. They lost most everything, only the guests' bedroom furniture was salvagable. Lorna and Len from Bristol came down and did what they could, also Wal from London (?). Mum and dad then went to live in Bristol with Lorna and Len, and it was after this that dad got ill and died. Then mum went to live with Wal and Marg at Lynmouth. Reg and I were in NZ at this time.

10 According to Faith Boxold, Thomas was born in Essex. He died in the Kingsway Nursing Home, Bishop Road, Bishopston, Bristol, England, having been moved there from 208 Glancuter Road (?) (my sister's home). He had cancer. My sister nursed him as long as she could, but had to move him to Kingsway as it got too much for her. She used to nurse at the Kingsway before she got married. She met her husband Len there whilst nursing. He fell off his motor bike and was admitted with concussion. That is how they met.

15 As mentioned in one last issue, we now give a biographical account of the life of the late Rev David Milne, Tatiara's grand old man.
The Rev Milne was born in Rotherhithe, London, on August 27,1827, and was the second son of Mr George Milne, a working cutler in Stepney. These particulars were obtained from the baptismal record of the Scotch Church, St Vincent, Stepney, a copy of which is held by Mrs Milne. His early life was spent at public schools, but as was customary in those days, he was early sent to work, utilising the evenings for advancement in education. Mr Milne tried first the trade of bookbinding, but not suiting him, he next attempted the printing, and must have spent several months at it, for (as we know) he was conversant with the technical terms of the trade appliances. This trade interfered with his health, so he had to leave it, selecting for life that of a shoemaker, for which he served his time.
His young life showed a tendency towards the Church, and from 15 years of age he was an attendant at the Methodist Church, being converted at 18. He became imbued with the spirit of Christianity, and in his spare time visited the Ragged Boy's School as a teacher and preacher of the Gospel. For several years he carried this out, and at 23 he was married to Miss Phoebe Sarah Taylor, of Lambeth Walk, London, in December 1850.
With his wife he decided to emigrate to the Golden Land Australia, and set sail in the Shackamaxon (Mrs Scown snr being a fellow passenger of his) and arrived at Port Adelaide in January 1853. They at once went on to Adelaide, taking the car of those days, the bullock dray, over horribly boggy roads, and spent the first night in Adelaide at the Black Horse Hotel in Leigh Street, now demolished. He at once opened in trade of shoemaker, and later had a general store in King William Street, spending his after hours in preaching and visiting the Hills district. In 1858 he left for Uraidla, there to open in shoemaking, taking into partnership, Mr Wm. Radford, a companion in Christian work. Three years of happy life were spent here, and then the wife died (March 1861) leaving four children alive, 3 dying in infancy. The family then were — Mrs Thos Driver (Phoebe), Summertown; Mrs Thos Farrow (Teresa), one time of Nth Leeor, Victoria; Edward William, of Bordertown; and Mrs Andrew Marshall (Sarah Ann), who died near Bordertown.
After the death of his wife, Mr Milne felt that it was his duty to go and preach the Gospel, and he accepted a position of missionary under the Bush Mission, and made his first trip to the South East in December 1861, riding his horse through from Adelaide to Port McDonnell. Whilst in this district, he had the misfortune to sprain his foot, and Mr Cook, of Kingston, conveyed him back to Adelaide in the barque "Swallow." A part of this vessel may now be seen at Kingston.
On his return to Uraidla, he was married in February 1862 to Grace Bray, daughter of Catherine Bray, a widow with four daughters and one son, the father dying in Cornwall, England. A fortnight after the ceremony he left his wife with the care of his four children, and arriving in Adelaide he was again conveyed in the Swallow to his work, this time to Kingston. He then took on what he termed his round trip, starting from Kingston and working to Mount Gambier, then Penola, Narracoorte, Padthaway, Tatiara, on to Wellington and Adelaide, the trip taking three months. He thus journeyed over his district four times a year. His diary gave him as visiting the shepherds hut, the splitters camp, the shearers shed, etc, preaching and teaching the gospel of the Lord Jesus. After three years of these trips using Uraidla as a working centre, he found that that town was too far away from his work, and taking his wife and family settled in Kingston, building what is now known in that town as Vine Cottage.
Five years in all he was with the Bush Mission, two years being spent with Kingston as a centre. This organisation then closed up, the composers recognising his sterling worth by presenting him with a large illustrated Family Bible as a token of esteem of his services on their be half. Mr Milne then decided to form a church at Kingston, and adopted the Congregational, preaching in the old school room near the police station. He was ordained in this room by the Revs F W Cox and C Manthorpe in 1866. He labored at Kingston for 7 years, building the church now held by the Church of England denomination, yet continuing his trips through Robe, Narracoorte and Tatiara, Mount Gambier then being well served. Finding the Tatiara becoming well settled, and with the pioneering blood well in his veins, he came to these parts, and with his wife and family landed here in February 1873 to establish the Congregational movement.
He saw the first settlement of the Tatiara with such men as Messrs Adamson and Wiese. In his early trips he used to preach in what was known as the Green Room of the Woolshed Hotel (premises now held privately by Messrs C. Lewis and Connell), the landlord supplying him with a washstand as a pulpit. After a time the landlord protested against the services being held in his house, and the rev. gentleman then preached in a room at the police station.
A school being required in the district, he stirred among the settlers, and a wooden building was erected on the site now occupied by the school residence. It was used on week days as a school and on the Sunday for Divine service. This place was afterwards taken by the Education department. Messrs Thos Adamson and A G F Wiese then associated with him in the building of the present Congregational Church, which was erected in 1880, the Rev W. Roby Fletcher, then leading Congregational preacher of the State, performing the opening ceremony. When Mr Milne came to the Tatiara, he abolished the round trip with the exception of Padthaway.
He first met the Lawson family on his first trip through the South East, and the loving friendship was continued through life, Mr Milne paying his last visit to the station in July of this year. He continued as Pastor of the Bordertown church until 1894, four years previously to this date accepting an appointment under the Parkin Mission Board to make preaching and visiting trips throughout the Desert from Frances to Murray Bridge, and his name is revered throughout all these parts as a friend of the settler, one who gave advice willingly and was ever ready to cheer on the efforts of the mighty fighters of the then virgin country.
In 1894, the time he closed his pastorate in Bordertown, he found his double task too heavy, and thinking the local church would get on better with a younger man, resigned, but held his appointment under the Board. The Rev Pearse, who takes the Anniversary services here on Sunday, followed him. Mr Milne retained the Parkin appointment until 1902, when he felt that he was too old, and that his life of usefulness had ended.
From this period until 1906 he practically rested then he carried out a long cherished wish of going to England to see the people of his district. Disappointment availed him as he only saw one face of the days of his youth. However, a happy time was spent, and he and Mrs Milne returned in October same year, thus spending 6 months away from their home of adoption. We might mention that Mr Milne's wish was to return home to see his four sisters whom he had left 54 years before. Since his return two have crossed the bourne.
After relinquishing his charge, he urged on the congregation the necessity of obtaining a manse, and after a big fight gained his purpose, and the premises one time occupied by the National bank was secured. Both buildings are freehold and out of debt. Whilst in church work Mr Milne started churches at Pooginagoric and Mundalla, the latter charge being afterwards relinquished in favor of Cannawigra.
Apart from church work, Mr Milne was a strenuous worker in the interests of the district, and was a member on hundreds of deputations to the district council and to ministers of the various governments. He was a striver in securing the railway to the district. Privately, he was a travelling encyclopedia, a man of reference, for the settlers of the huge district, as he had to carry out the land transactions, arrange for loans, and goodness knows what, and not one instance is recorded where his judgment was at fault. He was one of the workers in the Institute movement, and was the first to urge such a building for Bordertown. His suggestion was seized on instantly, and with such men as Messrs Adamson, Boothby, Wiese, Scott, Watson and Cleggett, an institute soon became an accomplished fact. He adhered to the institute, and when a couple of years ago his fellow trustees hesitated over the erection of a new building, he ridiculed their timidity and urged faith in the people and the district. Constancy of purpose
gained the trustees in favor, and we have now one of the few fine Institutes in South Australia. When the foundation stone was to be placed in position, the committee unanimously resolved that the honor should be his, and on May 24th of last year he performed the ceremony in the presence of an immense number of people. At the opening of the building he was present, and all speakers referred to the pleasure it had given them to see Father Milne present and his desire consummated.
Need we speak further of his life? A book could be written and then many important items left out. The life was revered wherever felt, and the people showed their expressions by love and the showering of gifts. Mr Milne received three illuminated addresses and heavy purses of sovereigns from the people, and a host of smaller donations. Even when leaving the London Ragged School for Australia, the inmates marked his kindness of heart and presented him with a copy of Calmen's Bible-Dictionary. The book is now a much-prized relic in the home of his son, Mr Herbert Milne, to whom he handed it on.
Mr Milne's outside hobby was gardening, and his home about a mile from the township testifies that he was an expert at his recreation. Ever practical, his gardening shows of this order, the plots being filled with recognised market topping fruit trees and vines, and vegetables of the choicest. Blooms were also cultivated, giving a cheeriness to the home. Mr Milne loved his garden and could always be found caring and tending. Just before his illness he pruned all the trees and with his fork dug around each.
The rigours of his early life's work — the riding through miles and miles of country in nature's grandeur in all weathers, the distances travelled in (as Mr J B Makin once remarked in a public testimony to the old gentleman) the "hob-nailed express" visiting the settlers — had no effect on his physical life; rather, it hardened him as the sturdy oak, and sickness was unknown to him. Even within the last year of his life he invariably walked the distance to and fro to worship and also took a class in the Sunday school. He frequently filled the local pulpit, and at times journeyed over his old country — Frances to Coonalpyn — preaching and renewing friendships of the pioneer days. The youngest to the oldest all experienced a pleasure in meeting Father Milne, and the much loved figure now lost will long remain a monument in the brain of the people of the Tatiara and Border Downs.
The family by the second wife now living are — Mr George Milne, Bordertown; Mr William, Hergott Springs ; Mrs Jenner, Renmark; Rev David, of Sedan; Frederick Louis, Bordertown; Alfred Ernest, of Bordertown; Mrs Gilbert Ferguson, Glencoe; Herbert, Bordertown; Arthur Horace, Adelaide; Clement, Adelaide; Ethel Catherine, Bordertown; Percy Bray, Parkside, There are 47 grandchildren and 2 great grand-children.

Veteran Show Exhibitor, 51 SUCCESSIVE EXHIBITIONS.
Early on Sunday morning the death occurred at his residence, Bay road, of Mr. Charles McArthur at the age of 77 years. Early on Sunday morning the death occurred at his residence, Bay road, of Mr. Charles M.cArthur, at the age of 77 years.
Mr. McArthur had enjoyed good health all his life, and was apparently as well as usual just before he succumbed. He rose early, and after speaking to his wife, suddenly collapsed and died shortly afterwards. Friends and relatives heard news of his sudden passing with surprise and regret.
Deceased was born at Square Mile, and had lived in this district all his life. He married Miss Caroline Kilsby, who survives. There are no children. Mr. McArthur was well known as a show exhibitor, and his death on the eve of the Mount Gambior show has removed one of the A. and H. Society's most consistent and valued exhibitors and members. He was a member of the committee for many years. He held a unique record in that he had exhibited at 51 successive Mount Gambier shows. For more than half a century his Lincoln sheep had been winning him honours at South Eastern shows, and for 30 years his roses had been taking championship ribbons.
In a recent interview Mr. McArthur recalled to a "Watch" representative that he first showed Lincolns in Mt. Gambier as a young man of 28, when the saleyards were situated approximately at the spot where Messrs May & Davis' service station now stands. The sheep show was held in these yards, and the cattle were exhibited on the hill near the Methodist Church. The Caledonian Hall, Hall of Commerce, and other buildings between the main corner and the church were, of course, nonexistent at that time. The first indoor show, said Mr. McArthur, was held in a hall near where the Hotel Federal now stands, and the old Oddfellows Hall was afterwards used. Shows were later held in the Old Institute Hall, and finally the A. and H. Society became established on the present well appointed
show ground.
Mr. McArthur, whose delightful old garden at Hedley Park bespeaks of his love of flowers, first exhibited roses 30 years ago, when he took up his residency in Bay road. He had marked success with roses at many South-Eastern shows since 1900, and had won scores of championships.
At the time of his death he still owned the old farm, and had a flock of between 70 and 100 stud Lincoln ewes. He had never owned anything but Lincolns, having started breeding from Moorak rams, and continued with rams from the late Wm. Forsyth's Hamilton stud. He had also crossed some of his ewes with rams from Mr. O. A. Christie, of Hamilton.
Nearly all the South-Eastern show societies will regret Mr. McArthur's death. In his younger days he took his Lincolns and flowers as far afield as Kingston, and also met with good success in the Adelaide Royal. He remarked when interviewed, that he had had a good innings, and wished he could have it over again.
The funeral took place yesterday, Rev. A. H. Ballinger conducting the burial service. Mr. W. Pearce carried
out arrangements.

48 Death of Old Colonists - Our obituary today records the death of two very old colonists, namely, Messrs. John Barrett, and Capt. E. F. Chalmers, of Sayes' Court, Bagdad. Mr. Barrett arrived in this colony in the ship Brixton, many years ago, and he is, we believe, the last colonist remaining who came by that vessel. He has been in business for a long time in this city, and is father of Hugh Sunderland Barrett, Esq. . . . Both gentlemen will be regretted by a wide circle of friends.

98 From Faith Boxold,
Emily died at 'The Falls', Lynmouth, North Devon, England. She came to live with us after Grandad (Isaac) died, first at Laidan House, Lynmouth, then at 'The Falls'. This is not 'The Falls' where Wal and Marg now live, they called their place 'The Falls' after mum and dad's place. Mary Squire and her husband 'Spider' visited us when we were at 'Laiden House', Lynmouth.

When Reg and I visited England in 1982, we visited their grave and put flowers on it from their old garden 'Staunton Cottage', Staunton Meade, plus some hydrangeas from a house further up the lane - a Mr and Mrs Coles. They had an elderly lady living with them who said she could remember Isaac and Emily.

108 He received his education at the High School of Edinburgh and the Edinburgh University. At the age of 18 he went to Ceylon and took charge of a coffee plantation belonging to his father. In 1863 ill health obliged him to return home, and in April 1864, he was appointed Lyon Clerk Depute, a post which he held till his death. He early developed a taste for local and family history, and even while in India he was an ardent student of those subjects. He published in 1880, "Scottish Arms", in two large folio volumes; the first consisting of a collection of Arms, beautifully fac-similed in colours from ancient manuscripts; and the second, of heraldic and genealogical notes illustrative of those Arms. This work has been called "the most important contribution to Scottish historical heraldry since the days of Nesbet". It established their author's position "as one of the ablest genealogists of the day". A biographical sketch will be found in The Scotsman, Edinburgh, April 20, 1886.

109 He succeeded his father in his farm of Bilstane, on the estate of Dryden, the property of Count Lockhart WISHART, and from 1745, of Walston, Lanarkshire. He later moved to the farm of Walston Place, Lanarkshire, belonging to the same landlord. Also in 1745, he rode from Walston to Dryden to give information that a search was being made for George LOCKHART, eldest son of the Count, on a charge of high treason, and this timely warning enabled him to escape to France. Mr STODART was also factor to Count LOCKHART. Notes from 'Memoir of James Wyld of Gilston and his Family' by Robert Stodart WYLD LL.D.
On notes referred to by Clive Stodart, James was referred to as 'the Laird of Walston'.

114 In the 1881 census, Emily was at Hemyock with William and Mary; no sign of Isaac, and had four of their children here. They had moved to Staunton Cottage Alcombe Dunster by 1886 when Lottie was born. Emily's family is always shown as living in Lower Alcombe, so we guess the Gill family lived in Staunton Cottage. Emily's mum died in 1886 which coincides with the Squire's moving to Staunton Cottage. James Gill is shown on censuses as living with the Squire family in 1891 and 1901.

The Smith family were neighbours to the Squire family, and in 1896, Charles Smith (b 1894) came to live with Isaac and Emily. Charles' mother had died, and his father was supporting a four year old severely disabled lad and several older children. Charles was still with the Squire family in 1901, but went on to serve in WW1 and later returned badly injured to live a long life in Bristol.

Isaac and Emily's youngest daughter Lottie probably went into service in London, and met Thomas Isaac Gilson. They married and moved back to Alcombe, bringing two children. Interestingly, they lived next door to Charles' brother Harry. In 1914, Wally Gilson was born at the Squire's cottage.

Isaac Squire died on 22nd December,1924, at the age of 78 years. They were still at Staunton Cottage, Staunton Meade. This cottage belonged to the Luttrell family, of Dunster Castle. After Isaac's death, Emily went to live with Thomas and Lottie Gilson, who had moved from Alcombe to Lynmouth (North Devon). Faith and Reg visited the U.K in 1985 and visited their grave, placing flowers from the garden at Staunton Cottage.

I visited the cottage in 2007 with Wally Gilson, and met the current owner. We were invited to have a look inside, and I could visualise how different it must have been 100 years ago. Wally could describe to the current owner what the place was like in the 1920s. Many thanks to Mary Chorley from Bridgwater Somerset for the information about her grandfather Charles Smith and for the photo of Isaac and Emily, and to Daphne of Minehead-Online for the postcard photo of Staunton Cottage.

118 John Squire was born on 7 September 1881, at Staunton Cottage, Staunton Meade, Alcombe, Somerset, Eng. I have a photocopy of his birth certificate. On the birth Certificate of his son, Ken, he describes his birthplace as Hemyock, Devon, England.

He came to Australia in 1911, and settled at Pt Wakefield, working as a Wheelwright for the South Australian Railways. On 31 October 1914, he married Ethel Gill at Pt. Adelaide. They were married in the Pt. Adelaide Methodist Church (in Dale St.) by Rev. Robert Ernest Stanley. Constance M Stanley and Maude H Rann were witnesses. Their only child, Ken, was born at Sister Whitford's Private Hospital, Hamley Bridge, and grew up in Pt Wakefield. The family moved to 37 Stephens Terrace, Torrensville, prior to 1943. This was possibly on John's retirement as a coachbuilder. Ethel died on 6 April 1943, at the Torrensville residence, and is buried at Centennial Park Cemetery.

John and Ethel are recorded in the Sands and MacDougal directories as living in Port Wakefild in 1919, 1936-43.

121 Ken was born at Whitford's Private Hospital, Hamley Bridge in the mid north of South Australia, to John and Ethel, who lived at Port Wakefield at the time. Probably on John's retirement from the railways, they moved to Torrensville, from where Ken met Connie.

Ken did an apprenticeship as an electrical fitter, but must have begun studying accountancy at nightschool almost immediately. By the early fifties, he had begun practising as a public accountant, and had an office at 308 North Terrace (city) for some years. He also began building spec. homes. During the fifties, he moved the family to Glenside, then Beaumont. While at Beaumont (about 1958), Ken began working as administrator for the Congregational Union (church) in Adelaide,and as a result, he and the family switched from Methodism to Congregationalism. He also moved to Toorak Gardens soon after. During the sixties, he began to explore opportunities for the church to be involved in building and managing aged home and nursing centres. He gradually became fulltime in aged care management, being involved at Rose Park, and consulting for several other centres, under the banner of the Congregational Homes for the Aged. They had also moved to Tusmore, and then to a Manager's unit at the Rose Park Aged Homes' complex.

After Connie died in 1974, Ken retired and moved to Belair. He had an interest in travel, and owned a motor home for some years. He had a number of cancers, and died of throat cancer in 1984.

The ship Northern Light, built in Quebec in 1853 was a three masted Schooner of 1,283 (nm) tons, owned by Lemon and Company and registered in Liverpool, Engand. On the 14th December 1863, during a gale in Port Phillip, the Northern Light was washed ashore on Swan Island, but survived to be refloated on the 19th February 1864. On the voyage bringing our immigrants it departed from Liverpool, England under the command of Captain H.W. Plan on the 7th December 1854 there were 435 immigrants, 104 adult males, 217 females, 48 male children and 66 female children all under the age of 14 years, overseen by the Surgeon Superintendent J.T.S. Jolley. The ship arrived at Port Adelaide after a voyage of 119 days with 432 immigrants on the 9th April 1855 as three of the girls had died.

Mrs. Christina BUCHANAN.
The death occurred on Saturday night of Mrs. Christina Buchanan, a very old and respected resident of the Mount Gambier district. She was the relict of the late Mr. Duncan Buchanan, whom she married in 1857. She has been in failing health for some time, and her death was not altogether unexpected. She was a daughter of the late Mr. Peter McArthur, a pioneer farmer of this district. She came to Australia and landed in Portland with her parents in 1852, then at the age of 13 years. The place of her birth was the Island of Mull, Argylshire, Scotland. She was 84 years of age at the time of her death, and was thus a colonist of 71 years. Mrs. Buchanan a few years ago built a fine house on the Bay-road, and then left the farm in the care of her sons. She was a valued member of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, and was well respected by all who knew her. A family of four sons and five daughters survive: Messrs. John, Peter, Archibald, and Walter Buchanan, and Mesdames H. H. Barrett, H. Gaillard, R. H. McFarlane, R. H. Charlick, and Miss M. Buchanan.
The funeral took place yesterday, when the Rev. J. H. Hull officiated at the graveside. Mr. A. J. McCallum had charge of the arrangements.

The Late Mr. Duncan BUCHANAN.
- One of the oldest residents of the district passed away on Thursday, Jan. 30 (says the South-Eastern Star of February 1), when Mr. Duncan Buchanan, farmer, died at his residence, Gambier East.
Mr. Buchanan was born at Glendaruel, Argyleshire, Scotland, on May 26, 1819, and when scarcely twenty years of age he showed he was possessed of an adventurous spirit by emigrating to Soutb America, where he engaged in pastoral pursuits near Buenos Ayres and Monte Video. He found the Spanish laws and customs, however, very unjust to English people : Indeed, to every nationality but Spanish. For fourteen years he endured them, and then left the country without even disposing of all his property. He returned to Scotland, but after so long a residence in a warmer region, found the rigorous climate of the old land too much for him, and having spent a year there, sailed for Australia.
That was about 1856. He went direct to the South-East, where his first occupation was that of a stockkeeper for the late Mr. Neil Black. Mr. Buchanan had become an accomplished horseman in South America, and was able to perform feats at Mr. Black's cattle station that few, if any, even in those pioneer days, could rival. He could, for instance, lasso horses or cattle when riding at full gallop, or riding barebacked at full speed lean over and pick up a stock-whip from the ground. No fences that his steed could take daunted him, and the way in whioh he could at high speed thread his way through the dense forests ot that day was wonderful. After a two years' stay at Neil Black's, Mr. Buchanan married a daughter of Mr. P. MacArthur, sen., and took up the farm in Gambier East, about two miles south-east of the town, on which he remained till his death. For some years Mr. A. MacArthur, his brother-ln-Iaw, was a partner with him in the farm. The deceased gentleman leaves a widow, five sons, and an equal number of daughters. Two of the latter are married, one to Mr. H. H. Barrett. J.P., and the other to Mr. H. Gaillard. Mr. Buchanan, who was a member of the Mount Gambier Presbyterian Church, was much respected by all with whom he was acquainted, or who had business dealings with him, his conduct being at all times courteous and unassailable in its honesty.

The death of another old colonist, Mr. William Leaity Morris, of Edwardstown, is reported. Mr. Morris was born in the Parish of Gulvall, near Penzance, Cornwall, in 1807, and thus had reached the ripe old age of 90 years. He and his wife (who has been dead about nine years), with three sons and two daughters, arrived the colony in 1847 in the ship Cressy. They lived in Adelaide for a short time, and then removed to Magill.
Mr. Morris worked at his trade as a wheelwright in the employ of the late Mr. Adamson for a time, and subsequently, after purchasing land in King William-street south, he commenced business there on his own account. It was while carrying on this business that he became so widely known, especially as a waggon builder. After taking the first prize for the first colonial-built waggon in connection with the Agricultural Society's shows his vehicles were much sought after by farmers and carriers of the colony, and the good name he then earned as a tradesman was maintained up to the time of his retirement from business, about 12 years ago.
Mr. Morris never took part in public affairs, being of a retiring disposition, but he was admired by all who came in contact with him for his sterling business integrity and uprightness of character. Four sons and three daughters with their families of 50 grandchildren and 42 great grandchildren survive him.

The late Mr. Alfred Ocean Chambers, who died at his residence, Teresa street, Norwood, last week, was well known in Adelaide. He was an old colonist, who had experienced the vicissitudes of life on the goldfields and in the bush in Victoria before he settled in this state, nearly 40 years ago.
The deceased gentleman was born, as his second baptismal name suggests, at sea, in 1841. His father, the late Mr. John Chambers, was a schoolmaster, and was on his way to Hobart when his fourth son was born. He settled in Tasmania with his family. He was one of the pioneer temperance advocates in Australia, having signed the pledge in 1832. The late Mr. A. O. Chambers left Tasmania in 1852, and went to Victoria. He at once proceeded to the goldfields, and remained there for about eight years in the capacity of storekeeper's assistant.
In 1865 he came to South Australia, and was employed by Messrs. Harris, Scarfe, & Co. for two years, but was thrown out of work by the commercial depression occasioned by the drought in 1866 and 1867. While he was waiting for an opportunity to secure another situation he conceived the idea of constructing a "commonsense washing machine." He had not had any previous experience as a carpenter, but he succeeded in turning out useful machines, which immediately became popular. He began business as a manufacturer on his own account, and carried on the enterprise for 20 years with success. During that time he perfected several useful mechanical inventions. In 1887 he joined the public service as relieving officer for the city in connection with the Destitute Asylum. He was prominent in literary society work, a foremost member of the baptist Church, and was a lay preacher for a number of years. He was a persistent advocate of total abstinence, and it is said that he was instrumental in securing more than 1,000 pledges. He took an active interest in all kinds of philanthropic work, and the last letter which he wrote to The Register, published on October 12, 1903, was in connection with an appeal he had previously made for monetary assistance for an unfortunate man whom he had befriended.
Mr. Chambers's family consisted of five sons and six daughters.

Mr. Fred Meincke, who has been associated with him in the carrying trade, was born on the old lightship. When the railway authorities were building the bridge over the Light to carry the railway to Kapunda, Mr. Meincke was sent up as interpreter for the gangs of German workmen employed, and the result was that he settled in Kapunda as carrier for the railway.

Mr. Richard Musson, a well known Portonian and a colonist of 42 years, died on Saturday. The deceased arrived in this colony in the Omega in 1850, and shortly afterwards settled in North Adelaide, where he remained until the discovery of the Bendigo diggings led him to try his fortune on the goldfields. He did not remain there very long, but returned to Adelaide and entered into business as a contractor. On relinquishing this he went to the Port and entered the employ of the firm of Messrs. J. Hart & Co., afterwards merged into the Adelaide Milling Company, with whom he served until the time of his death, a period of 25 years.
He was highly respected by his employers, who as a testimony of the esteem in which they held him forwarded a letter of condolence to the bereaved family and a wreath to be placed on the grave.

162 Obituary: MR. D. S. KEIGHTLEY
Mr D. S. Keightley, 66, of Angaston, died yesterday morning after a long illness, and final tributes will be paid with a feeling that he will live on in the many things of community value he so unselfishly helped to create.
Born in the district, he was allied with Mr Ohlmeyer in his younger days, and then acquired and built up his Angaston business with the unfailing help of Mrs Keightley, formerly Miss Florence Sleader, who devotedly nursed him during his long illness.
He was appointed a Justice of the Peace in 1921, and around that time did splendid work toward establishment of the District Hospital, of which he was chairman at time of the officiol opening in 1921. After 21 years in office, he retired in 1942, and was presented with an illuminated address. The Institute, too, profited by his help and vision, for he was one of the founders of the Pictures in 1914, and was Institute president from 1922 till 1924.
He was first secretary of the bowling club long before the greens were laid, and went on to win a top place among trophy winners. Later he became president, and growth of the club was akin to that of the Institute during his able leadership. He was a Past Master of Barossa Masonic Lodge, and the scope of his community interest reached also to the young people to whom he lent valuable guidance in the days when debating and constructive thinking were vital elements.
D.S.K. has passed on, but it can be said of him that the path he trod bears the fragrance of affection and appreciation for the inspiration and good he wrought. Left with Mrs Keightley are two sons: Ronald, Adelaide; and Graham, Angaston. The funeral takes place today.
