    Biography Notes
    • He was a kindly, loved man. His various occupations were road building, baking, wheat lumper and labourer (until he was quite a good age). He worked at stacks and on ships lumping wheat and in latter years. he, with his nephew "Pud" were a good team. They were clever at dropping bags from the shoulder into the exact right position, without having to use a bag hook to straighten them. They used slides and elevators to build the stacks and to load railway trucks for transporting to ketches tied up at the jetty. They also went out on windjammers anchored at the light (deep water). Walking on bagged wheat all day was very leg tiring as well as hard and heavy on the shoulders.

      Jack also worked at the Port Broughton Fibre Works around 1912. He and his family lived on a block to the east of his parents, with about 100 acres (land on both sides of the Pt Pirie road). In his old age he lived in Pt Broughton and worked at the Hotel where he was widely and effectionately known as "Linc".
