After ‘Bill’ married ‘Nell’ they went to Narbre where Bill and Frank (brother) had a Tank Sinking lease plant. Nell & Bill lived in a well set camp at a work site in a converted shady Shed and even used silver ware. Nell came home to Muttaburra for the birth of Bill (Snr) – she travelled in a buggy, very tiring for a pregnant woman.
Nell delivered Frank’s wife’s baby when she left it too late to get to Longreach – a baby girl, called Olive. When Dr Michael found them the baby was washed and the mother comfortable. Dr said he could not have done it better himself.
They had Frank in Isisford & Doreen, Charlie & Neville in Longreach where they moved to for the kids schooling.
In 1924 when Nell who had 9 kids died, several of them went back to Muttaburra where Tim & Norah moved back to help bring them up.
