1551 Wes and Nell Tiller went to Karkoo on the West Coast in the mid 1920s and farmed there until 1938. The salt lake on this land is still known as Tiller's Lake. Wes lost this farm during depression years because of a debt to stock agents of 140 pound. Farmers having larger debts were left on the land to work it through but smaller debts were easy to recoup by selling the properties. Wes served in both World War I and II and in the early 50s took up soldier settlement land at Greenways in the South East. Wes and Nell are buried in the Lucindale Cemetery.

1556 When Jack Adams was a small boy he went to a cricket match with his father, his mother having gone to spend the afternoon with a Mrs Standley who lived nearby. During the course of the match Jack's bootlace came undone, and, as his father was out on the field, he apparently decided to find his mother to tie his bootlace. As much of the land around Pinery was either scrub or partially cleared, he soon became lost, and it was not until the match concluded that it was realized that he was missing, each parent believing he was with the other. A search party was soon organized, and most able-bodied people in the area participated with hurricane lamps and buggy lamps. The search continued all night, and it was not until after day-break he was found three or four miles west of Pinery. As snakes were rather plentiful in those days and the autumn nights were bitterly cold, it was considered that he was a lucky boy to survive the ordeal.
Jack had the misfortune to lose his father when he was only 7 but his mother was a very capable and resourceful woman and she managed to keep the farm going by doing dressmaking to help pay for the farm help. jack obtained his Compulsory Certificate at 11 and with his mother and some seasonal help, farmed the land originally taken up by his grandfather.
Jack later married and had four children but tragedy struck again and when his youngest child was 2 he lost his young wife who was only 33.
A great horse lover, he bred and owned some very useful show jumpers and usually kept a rather good team of horses for farm work. He later bred A.I.S cattle with some success and showed them at country and the Royal Shows.
Jack was a public-spirited man and took an interest in most aspects of community life, serving as Trustee of Grace Plains Church, President of Pinery Cricket Club, Secretary of Pinery School Committee, Trustee and committee man of both Pinery hall and S.M. Recreation Ground. He represented Pinery Ward on Owen District Council from 1934 until his death and was a Justice of the Peace for a similar period. He spent his entire life at "Tilada", and passed away in his 72nd year. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)

Eventually he started work, helping on the farm and also working for other locals and family. He helped on his uncle Inman Tucker's farm for some time, but over his life time he was a shearer, wheat-lumper, farmer and later in life became an electrician, working for the cotton spinner and weavers company Davies, Coop and Co at Kilkenny. He was also interested in sport, and played for many teams in cricket and football, At one period in his younger life he worked for the Telegraph Co, helping to erect telephone lines, especially round the Adelaide district and out at Kanmantoo. After his marriage he returned to live at Zulu Farm, and worked the land with his brother until he arranged a share-farming agreement with a local farmer, Walter Gardner.
He was always interested in motor cars and especially motor bikes, and would race the Harley Davidson motor bike and sidecar in races with other enthusiasts down the centre of Port road a t Croydon and Hindmarsh with his older brother, John, in the sidecar.
In 1959, he moved his family to live on a dairy farm at Mt Pleasant, where they remained for four years, during which time Wilfred was very sick with rheumatic fever, and had to sell the dairy farm, and move to Allenby Gardens, where he was employed at Davies, Coop. He died in Adelaide.

The death occurred on Friday 205h in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital of Wilfred T. T. Clarke. He took ill on Wednesday, with a heart attack from which he did not recover.

He spent several years share farming in the district and was married in 1929 to Miss M Farquhar of Watervale and lived on the property of W.R. Garner at which farm he was working. Later he left the district and purchased a dairy farm at Mount Pleasant. This district being of a wet nature, did not agree with his health; he sold and went to live at Allenby Gardens where he worked as an electrician till his death. Mr Clarke was interested in church work and was a trustee of the Kybunga Methodist Church and helped erect the Sunday School attached to the church. He was widely known in the sporting world with the nickname of 'Spud' Clarke. A footballer of some merit, having represented the Stanley Association against several League Football teams as a rover. He was also captain of the Kybunga team and later played with the Wooroora Association with the combined Kybunga/Hoyleton side.

His keenness for the game was shown when he rode his pony one Saturday morning from Croydon to Balaklava to play football for his club. He was also an accomplished cricketer. He was buried in the Centennial Park Cemetery. The Rev. Bandcliff of the Croydon Church of Christ was the officiating minister. His nephew, Mr Reg Sulley, Ralph Clarke, Keven Clarke and Aver Clarke were pall bearers.

B÷ttcher, Wilhelm August Christian (I2437)
 
1560 Wilhelm and Wilhelmina children have three variations of surnames.

The first variation is B÷ttcher

All the children born in Prussia have this surname.

The Second variation is Burcher,

This came about because the pronunciation of B÷ttcher is Bur-cher. I can only assume when the midwife asked their surname she spelled it as it sounded and we have Burcher.

Third variation is Butcher

I can only assume that once again the midwife spelled the surname as it sounded but her handwriting was bad and it was transcribed into the records at Butcher instead of Burcher
