    • Obituary:
      Mrs Phillipa MEINCKE, an esteemed resident of Kapunda for 60 years, died on August 4. Born at St Austell, Cornwall, in 1835, she came to Australia 20 years later in the ship Trafalgar. Two years after her arrival she married Mr Louis Meincke of Kapunda, who predeceased her. The late Mrs Meincke had a wonderful memory, and could recount conditions which prevailed during the Crimean war. A son - Mr J Langdon (Torrensville) - and four daughters - Mesdames E James (Kapunda), Hambly (Hilltown), Groth (Broken Hill), and Miss Meincke (Kapunda) still survive.
