    Notes 
    • Birth details recorded reference book 445 page 247.
      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)
