1904 When Jack Adams was a small boy he went to a cricket match with his father, his mother having gone to spend the afternoon with a Mrs Standley who lived nearby. During the course of the match Jack's bootlace came undone, and, as his father was out on the field, he apparently decided to find his mother to tie his bootlace. As much of the land around Pinery was either scrub or partially cleared, he soon became lost, and it was not until the match concluded that it was realized that he was missing, each parent believing he was with the other. A search party was soon organized, and most able-bodied people in the area participated with hurricane lamps and buggy lamps. The search continued all night, and it was not until after day-break he was found three or four miles west of Pinery. As snakes were rather plentiful in those days and the autumn nights were bitterly cold, it was considered that he was a lucky boy to survive the ordeal.
Jack had the misfortune to lose his father when he was only 7 but his mother was a very capable and resourceful woman and she managed to keep the farm going by doing dressmaking to help pay for the farm help. jack obtained his Compulsory Certificate at 11 and with his mother and some seasonal help, farmed the land originally taken up by his grandfather.
Jack later married and had four children but tragedy struck again and when his youngest child was 2 he lost his young wife who was only 33.
A great horse lover, he bred and owned some very useful show jumpers and usually kept a rather good team of horses for farm work. He later bred A.I.S cattle with some success and showed them at country and the Royal Shows.
Jack was a public-spirited man and took an interest in most aspects of community life, serving as Trustee of Grace Plains Church, President of Pinery Cricket Club, Secretary of Pinery School Committee, Trustee and committee man of both Pinery hall and S.M. Recreation Ground. He represented Pinery Ward on Owen District Council from 1934 until his death and was a Justice of the Peace for a similar period. He spent his entire life at "Tilada", and passed away in his 72nd year. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)

1909 Wilhelm and Wilhelmina children have three variations of surnames.

The first variation is B?ttcher

All the children born in Prussia have this surname.

The Second variation is Burcher,

This came about because the pronunciation of B?ttcher is Bur-cher. I can only assume when the midwife asked their surname she spelled it as it sounded and we have Burcher.

Third variation is Butcher

I can only assume that once again the midwife spelled the surname as it sounded but her handwriting was bad and it was transcribed into the records at Butcher instead of Burcher
