478 Dulcie was born at "Railway View" Warnertown, Dulcie lived in three different homes in Warnertown in her early years. She can faintly remember when water was scarce; she was having a bath on the verandah when a snake slid onto the verandah and headed for the water. Her mother killed the snake without hesitation. From her home at "Willow Lodge" at the foot of the hills, Dulcie travelled three miles to school in Warnertown by horse and sulky, with her elder sister Gladys. The horse was content to stay in the horse shed all day with a nose bag of chaff. Before school Dulcie helped to milk the cows and separate the milk. Cream ws sent two or three times a week to Finlayson's factory at Gladstone.
Dulcie can remember the Arbour Day holidays and Sunday school picnics where the greasy pig and rooster chase was played. Sunday was always regarded as the Sabbath, Dulcie had to polish the silver and help her mother do the cooking the day before, because work was forbidden on Sunday. Church services were held in the supper room of the Institute.
Dulcie's parents Killed their own meat and made butter, Alb and Ivy took 50 dozen eggs at a time to a shop in Port Pirie and received groceries in payment for them. Ivy made her own soap. After Dulcie finished her schooling she stayed home and helped look after her younger twin brother and sister. Stan and Una, and helped with the home and farm duties. Dulcie can well remember her 21st birthday when her friends organized a surprise party in the Warnertown Institute. Her parents did not even know about it.
On her wedding day, Dulcie rose early so she could as usual help her mother with the chores. Dulcie then caught the train into Port Pirie. She walked from the Solomontown Railway Station to her sister-in-law's place in Balmoral Road to get dressed (4.5km) and it was a hot day. jack tiller was best man and Margaret Johns was bridesmaid.
Dulcie and Alex set up home at "Dingley Dell" at Pirie East. Dulcie continued to work hard milking cows, gardening and cooking. She was a keen tennis player, playing for the Nuron Tennis Club. In 1973 she shifted to Hannan St, where she lives still. She attends the Baptist Church across the road. She has been involved with Meals on Wheels and enjoys going to Senior Citizens Club. She attends old style dances held in the area. Her garden also gives her much pleasure. (The Tucker Family History in Australia, 1992)

Wood-cutting, market-gardening and blacksmith jobs were taken on, handing his wages to his mother. Later he took on shearing, firstly by blades, then with electric shears. He was renowned for his excellent work. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992) Mott, Edgar Arnold (I4035)

484 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.

Effie used to drive to Port Lincoln in a horse-drawn vehicle for supplies and the round trip would take her all day. The Family left Wanilla in 1912 as it was too wet to work the farm.

OBITUARY SPOKEN AT EFFIE'S FUNERAL;
"We are gathered here today to pay our last respects to Effie Murton and to Comfort and support her family in their loss and grief. And her family do - rightly - grieve at her passing from this life for although she lived a long and full life, there is always sadness at the death as those who remain come to terms with their loss. And grief is the God-given emotion by which we work through the fact that a loved one is gone from among us.
But while we grieve, we can also rejoice. We rejoice that the tired body of Effie Murton will never know struggle or pain again. We rejoice that because for her life many, many other people came to know life and love and acceptance. And we rejoice because of he Christian faith which gives us the assurance that she has now passed on to something far better than she ever knew while living here on this earth.
Effie Murton was born Effie Susannah Holman on 75h November 1894 at Nelshaby near Port Pirie. Her own mother died when Effie was 11 years old and from that time onward Effie began what was to be a life-time of looking after others. It began with her four brothers and father to whom she became mother and provider at the age of 13 years. Her father was a local preacher, and it was from him that she learnt the Christian principles of love and service to others that were to fashion her life-style for the future.
About 10 years after the death of her mother, the family moved to Kyancutta where her father remarried. Effie herself married Norman Murton in June 1915 and together they set up house at Cummins. Because of Norm's work with the Railways they were often on the move and at one stage home was a tent at Ungarra.
Despite the many moves, Effie managed to raise 10 children, and if that wasn't enough, I'm told that house was often home to many more. Colour and creed were of no importance to Effie and both aborigines and whites came to know that there was always a spare place at the meal-table and a spare bed at the Murton home. Her family was to become an even bigger responsibility when she undertook the care of her arthritis-stricken mother-in-law for some 20 yars. It is not surprising that her church attendance and community activities were somewhat curtailed during these hectic years.
Effie and Norm saw 50 yars of marriage before Norm died, and Effie lived on to see her family of 10 children grow to some 40 grandchildren, 181 great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren. That family has been of much comfort to Effie since Norm died but the past 18 years were often long and lonely for her. Because of a broken hip her own home responsibilities ceased, but even so, her love and caring continued to reach out to others through her hands for her crocheting work continued into her 88th year.
That brief picture of Effie Murton's life was given to me by members of her family. As I put it together I began to see a remarkable woman - a woman whose capacity to work, to love and to care for others was enormous. Her work-load, without the aid of the mod-cons we have today would have killed any lesser person at a very young age, but she did it all without complaint and always with a smile.
My enquiries about Effie didn't stop with the family though. I talked with some of the members of this community who knew her and without exception their comments about her were all the same. Those comments are best summed up in the words of one person who said:
"Effie was a very warm person who, despite her large family and heavy work-load always had a smile, a friendly word, and loved a good laugh."
On 26th February 1983 a remarkable woman died. A long and busy life wore out the earthly body of Effied Murton, but her trust was in her God to look after her heavenly body and soul. And so today we give thanks - thanks for her life, and thanks for the faith which has now given her new life with God who has called her home to himself." (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)
