Richard was buried on 20/10/1937 at the Mallala Cemetery and Rev. H. C. Hill officiated at the funeral ceremony.

Richard was born at Salisbury in his parents' home and at a young age went with them to live at Grace Plains. His schooling at Grace Plains was rather limited as Richard was required to stay home to mind the sheep, as fences were few on the property. One shilling per week was the charge for each child attending school. A Mr Adams was the school master and during the winter months he conducted night classes for young adults, giving instruction in reading, writing and arithmetic. As a child, Richard slept in the box of the old-fashioned stripper.
Some land was acquired at Kybunga by his father and they travelled with horses and implements to farm this property but the project was abandoned after a time.
A story often told by Richard occurred in his youth at Grace Plains. At a party held in someone's barn, possibly on New Year's Eve, several of the local lads decided to have fun. At a convenient interval they adjourned out of doors to where the vehicles and horses were situated. Here they quickly proceeded to change the wheels. Next morning in the light of day various people discovered they had different coloured wheels on their cart, buggy or sulky; maybe two red wheels with two green ones, or one rusty dirty wheel with one shiny new varnished one. They really had fun. The end of the story is forgotten; whether the culprits were found out, or whether they confessed to the trick, unfortunately is not known.
After marriage Richard and Eliza settled on a farm, at Grace Plains, belonging to a Mr A March (an uncle) for rental of approximately 25 pound per year. Times were difficult before the days of fertilizers and even the small rental was hard to find. There was a well on the property situated in the Stockyard creek and during dry periods this was extensively used by folk living nearby. At times it ran dry and then it was necessary to wait a few hours for the water to refill the well, so the bucket could be used. During this period camel trains were still travelling northward with Afghan attendants. Two children were born there.
About March 1897 the family moved to Inkerman on the Port Wakefield Road for several years. Richard and Eliza entered into the life of the small church which reopened for worship. There was timber on the property and this provided a better livelihood than their wheat farming. Wood was cut and carted to Part Lorne and loaded on the ketch 'Annie Watt'. Richard served for a term on the Port Wakefield Council. Shopping was done at either Port Wakefield or the Long Plains Store kept by the late C.W. Burnard. Either was a long drive with horse and cart. Another son was born while they lived at Inkerman.
They moved in approximately 1902 to a farm at Owen. As there was no church building in the town. Sunday Services were held either in the Council Chamber or at the Institute. Eliza at times supplied music on the piano. They worked hard for a building. Richard helping to cart stone for the Church. Their dream eventually came true and the Methodist Church became a reality. Richard was an original Trustee. Another son was born here.
In 1911 a farm property at Mallala was purchased for 12 pounds per acre from the late W. Vawser. The term of payment was 15 years and it took that long to pay. The drought of 1914 almost meant ruin; horses were sent away for agistment, several cows died and without the earnings of the eldest son Claud, whose money came home to supply daily needs, life would have been almost unbearable. Good years followed and this helped establish security. The family attended the Mallala Methodist Church and joined in all celebrations. Richard became a Trustee and Steward, positions he held until his death. Several ministers complemented him on his listening ability; a not of the head meant approval and likewise a sideways movement of the head meant disapproval. Another daughter was born here.
Richard loved cricket and in his younger years played in country teams and also in a team consisting of cousins known as the Tiller Cricket Team.
He died suddenly while assisting his son Sid with hay cutting operations. By this time Richard and Eliza had retired to a home in Mallala with their daughter Joyce. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)

Myrtle lived at home with her parents until her marriage. During the first years of their married life, Myrtle and Herbert lived at Prospect. Then they moved to Jamestown where Herbert continued his trade as a stonemason. Many examples of his fine workmanship can still be seen there today - including the travel guide in the main street of Jamestown. A humorous event in Herbert's building career was related by his daughter:
"He was renovating one of the local (Jamestown) shops when a big flood went through the town, Dad went off to see the volume of water rushing down the creek close to the main street when all of a sudden - down came his wheelbarrow, sailing along the creek - complete with planks, tools etc from his work-site!"
Both Myrtle and Herbert were keen gardeners and did not travel much. They only travelled to Kadina, Kybunga and Watchman to visit other family members (usually by train). Myrtle always enjoyed maintaining contact with her family, whether by visits or by mail, and was especially proud of her Scottish heritage (sometimes to the dismay of her family who did not enjoy bagpipe music!) Later in life she became very hard of hearing. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)

Eliza was a remarkable lady: she faced life as a young widow courageously. The loss of several young children must have been a fearful grief. When questioned about her attendance at church, a few days after her husband's funeral, she replied, "What better place to be, than in God's house of prayer?".

None of the members of the family that we have been able to contact have any knowledge of this child. The only reference is in the Bicentennial Biographical Index in which the death date is 1973. However, we feel that there may be an error and perhaps this child died as an infant in 1873. This would explain why the rest of the family has not heard of him. Had he lived to the grand age of 101, we feel certain that the rest of the family would surely have heard of him. (The Tucker Family in Australia 1992)
