    Notes 
    • Rosetta was an aunt when she was born and attended school with some of her neices and nephews at Grace Plains. rose commenced school at an early age going with her elder brothers and sisters and many were the times they carried her on their shoulders as she found the tree mile walk morning and afternoon very tiring. No doubt her little steps impeded their speed. her teacher, a Mrs Morgan, often made a bed from coats belonging to the pupils for her to rest on during the day. Rose held her teacher in high esteem and after she had completed her required schooling she attended for another year at Mrs Morgan's suggestion. Rose and her sisters used to help stack the hay, always using bonnets and old stockings on their arms to protect them from the sun and to prevent scratching on their arms. Life was centered round the family, church and associated activities, local interests and visits to relatives. Having a married sister, Harriet, living at St. Peters meant that trips to Adelaide were generally an overnight stay and on the return trip a call on the baker to purchase bread meant that the daily chore of bread making was eliminated for a few days.
      Rose remained in the family home until the death of both parents. She married when she was 26, their wedding being the first solemnized at Grace Plains. Rose and her husband lived and farmed at Mallala until 1927. Their children were born there and they were foster parents to Ada Stewart, a ward of the state, from the time she was 14 until she married Alfred Bristow. They shifted to Wilcox Ave, Prospect because of Les's ill health; around 1934 they decided that the sea air may be beneficial for him and they made their home on the Esplanade at Grange. Some years after his death she moved to a smaller residence at Woodville Park.
      Sixteen years after her husband's death she married again and she and Elliot lived at Plympton and then Kensington. After his death she lived at Weeroona Private Hospital, lockleys until her death in her 98th yar. her life was centred around her husband, sons and grandchildren but she always maintained very close ties with her relatives.

    • 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.
