    Notes 
    • William attended a Bible College in North Adelaide and wanted to be a missionary and it was at a missionary meeting in Adelaide that he met Eva, who also wanted to be a missionary; however, her father would not agree to it so poor Will was doomed to be a farmer, although his children all say he was no farmer as he spent so much time reading and studying the Bible and coming to the city for missionary meetings. Will and Eva only had a few years together.
      When he was first Married Will worked on the Redpath's farm at Hoyleton, South Australia; then he moved further down the road and built a house on the farm which he called "Belair Farm". In February of 1923 he moved to Lameroo. Will married Ethel and they moved to the Coorong where Will ran cattle, and then to Halidon in 1925. About 1930 Will, Ethel, Clarence and Allan moved to a property at Naturi (just out of Tailem Bend). As this did not do any better than his other properties, he moved to Tailem Bend and worked for the Railways delivering wood and parcels with a horse and jinker. It was while he was delivering wood that he met Thelma and told her about his eligible son. She was not interested but he was persistent and suggested Arthur come to chop wood. So began a 46 year partnership. Will became a Seventh Day Adventist in his later years and attended church at Murray Bridge, South Australia. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)
