      Jessie McLean (my mother) married William Davis (my father) in Minyip. Vic and moved to Queensland to join the Davis family (mother and brothers and sisters) who had moved to Queensland earlier and bought a property about 29 kms outside Chinchilla in the Wambo Shire. My 3 sisters, Rose, Elsie and Lucy were born and received part of their education at Wambo and the remainder in Chinchilla.

      My family moved into Chinchilla and bought a dairy farm a short distance out of Chinchilla. My father suffered ill health for some time and sadly he died when I was 6 years old. Mother carried on working the farm, selling milk and cream to the townspeople. My sisters were old enough to help in the running of the farm. My mother was a keen gardener and always had lovely flowers blooming all seasons of the year. She also had a wonderful orchard and vegetable garden. I
      don't know how she found time to do it all.
