    • Obituary:
      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. Excepting for one term as Councillor for West Ward Mr. Meincke did not enter much into the public life of the town, but he was of a charitable disposition and no-one ever appealed to him in vain. He was a subscribing member of Lodge of Light for 43 years, and was a past master of the lodge. His second son (Mr. Julius Meincke) is at present the immediate past master of the lodge. In addition to the widow, there survive six children?Mrs. Evan James and Miss Edith Meincke (Kapunda), Mr. Fred Meincke (Kapunda), Mr. Julius Meincke (Anlaby), Mrs. F. Groth (Boken Hill), and Mrs. Hambly (Mile-End); 27 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren.
