    Notes 
    • Birth details recorded, District Inman Valley reference book 29 page 652.

      Eliza was a remarkable lady: she faced life as a young widow courageously. The loss of several young children must have been a fearful grief. When questioned about her attendance at church, a few days after her husband's funeral, she replied, "What better place to be, than in God's house of prayer?".
      A very talented dressmaker, she set about supporting herself and the remaining children by her sewing, as well as maintaining the farm with the help of hired men. Her daughter Louisa, as she matured, helped greatly in these efforts. Her son Jack took over the running of the farm when he was old enough to do so. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)

    • In 1847, there were seven Wesleyan Churches in South Aus. and Mt. Barker was one of them.

      When the mill was built, it was used as a place of worship and Sunday School was also held in it. Later, a slab church was built in Cameron Street, of red gum posts with an earthen floor and bags for windows. The first stone church, which is now the Lecture Hall was opened in 1851. The Rev. J. Hall preached morning and evening, the collection for the day amounting to 44-2-6 (a record even for today). The Rev. J. Dann, D.D., who was 21 years of age, walked from Adelaide to Mt. Barker to take charge of this church. The parsonage was built in 1857.

      The present fine structure, the Dunn Memorial Church built in 1881, donated to the Mt. Barker Methodists by the late John Dunn, now stands alongside the old church.
