    Notes 

    • Daisy's mother was born in U.S.A. and her father in Wales. They owned a sheep property on Willochra Plains, then moved to Telowie when Daisy was 3. She was educated at Port Germein. The Harvey family moved to Adelaide and Daisy was courted by Correspondence and eventually Stan proposed by letter and was accepted. Stan went off to the war and returned in 1919.
      Daisy had a very bright personality; she loved life and worked hard. She was an excellent tennis player, house-keeper and farmer's wife. She helped hand-milk 30 cows; during the depression she separated the milk and cream and made butter to sell to the East-West railways (one shilling per pound). She had 300 White Leghorn fowls and they produced about 10 dozen eggs per day; some were sold fresh (at about 4 pence a dozen), but Daisy pickled hundreds to be sold to bakeries in times of shortage (for about a shilling a dozen). She always had a wonderfully productive garden and was an excellent Cook.
      In 1965 Daisy became very ill with insufficient blood to the brain through hardening of the arteries. She was ill for about 7 years, but for most of that time they lived in Port Lincoln. Lois Halls came to live with them to help care for Daisy. At the end of 1973 Stan admitted Daisy to Tumby Bay Hospital where she died six months later.
      In 1966 Stan decided to sell the Port Germein Property and retire in Port Lincoln. Daisy was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She died in 1974 after 54 years of marriage.
