    Notes 
    • Murl attended Primary School at Milcowie Dam (half way between Warnertown and Crystal Brook) for 12 months and then the Warnertown Primary School until grade 7, where she was taught by Mr Bus. Her hobbies were ballroom dancing, needlework and gardening. As a child she helped her father train the trotting horses at Delemere farm where he had made a trotting track. She rode to school. She learned art, needlework, dressmaking and studied the piano and steel guitar as a teenager. Murl's father died when she was 17; this left her mother and her to run the family farm.

      Murl worked for a while in Adelaide at Woodlands Grammar School, and at the Barrier Hotel and Central Hotel in Port Pirie, as a housemaid, but spent most of her life working on the farm at Warnertown.

      Murl has been an attendant at 10 weddings, nine times as a bridesmaid and once as a matron-of-honour. Other highlights that Murl remembers well are a joy flight with Kingsford Smith in the "Southern Cross" airplane for 10 shillings around 1930, and a trip on the ship "Moonta" doing the Gulf Trip from Port Pirie to Port Augusta to Whyalla to Port Lincoln to Adelaide. She came home by train as she was too sea sick. Her Uncle, William Dow, Married to Ethel Hawkins, was Headmaster at Hummocky Hill (now Whyalla) and they made many trips across the Gulf in the small cargo/passenger ship called the "Nelshaby" to visit them.

      After Thier marriage Murl and Jim honeymooned in Kangaroo Island. Jim worked on the farm for the first 7 years and then left to be employed by the Commonwealth Railways (now Australian National) until his retirement at 60. In 1960 Murl and Jim bought a house in Port Pirie so that they could be closer to his employment. The farm was being worked by share-farmers until it was sold in 1964 to neighbour and relation Alex Johns.

      Murl and Jim parted in 1975. they are now divorced. Murl remained in Port Pirie and Jim moved to Sydney. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)
