    Notes 
    • Edward attended Grace Plains School when he was not tending the sheep or doing other jobs around the house. So his schooling was limited, but in those days it was not compulsory to attend school. His religious upbringing was at the Grace Plains Methodist Church which, prior to amalgamation was the Bible Christian Church, built on land donated by his grandfather. he also spent some time at the Church training College conducted by Dr Torr at Brighton, and as a result was an active lay preacher in the Methodist Church wherever he resided throughout his married life. Ruby's parents were married at Alma, hence her second name. Soon after Edward and ruby met, rub's parents moved to Glenelg; hence they married at Glenelg.
      After the wedding Edward and Ruby went to live on the farm at Owen. After their second son was born they moved to Seaton where Edward became a poultry farmer. They called the house "Glendon". but with the arrival of Lyle they had difficulty renaming it and never did before selling it and moving to rented premises at Fulham Gardens where they remained only a short while until Edward obtained a trolley and horses and proceeded to Victor harbour where he acquired a scrub roller to clear a 600 acre property he had purchased 2 miles from the town. Some time between leaving Owen and acquiring the property at Victor Harbour he had bought a farm at Lameroo and had his brother-in-law Ned Lindsay working it on shares. Once when he returned from Victor Harbour one of the back wheels on the trolley had its iron rim nearly worn through in on spot as he had tied the wheel to act as a brake coming down the old Willunga Hill. He then sold the Victor Harbour property as the Lindsay s were moving off the Lameroo farm, so they then moved to this town for 4 years before moving back to a house which he had built at Fulham Gardens. Once more he had a share farmer on the Lameroo farm which he kept for quite a number of years before selling it to that share farmer. All this time he had only one motor car which he bought while at Owen. It was an Overland tourer registration number 19075. His brother Bert bought one at the same time, and his ws numbered 19076. At Fulham Gardens he worked as a lorry driver until the war years when he went to Holdens to work on armament production. His next move was to Woodville where after the war he was a wool presser and storeman at the Farmers' Union woolstores at Port Adelaide. His brother Perc worked alongside him. After retirement he moved again, this time to Grange where he was able to indulge his great love of gardening until failing health took both Edward and Ruby into a nursing home where they remained until they died.
