    • «b»Janet McCredie Haldane «/b»born 16/2/1876 at Mt Templeton, S.A. She was educated at a private boarding school at North Adelaide, her home at Mt Templeton in the north of the state being still in an area in the process of development, education locally may not have been available. However the 1883 Directory shows her parents at the suburb of Maylands. Janet was then aged 7 so it is doubtful if she was a boarder. She was 12 when her father died and according to her obituary was at Kalgoorle, W.A. in 1895 when aged 19.

      Janet married Frederick McCredie Henning who had been born in Morpherville.

      Their first son was born at Fremantle WA. in 1897 and their second in 1898 at Coolgardie, WA. A studio photograph of Janet and her husband and sons is dated 1/1/1899 at Brisbane and on March 13th application for land selection had been made by Frederick at Winton and was taken up on a seven year lease but a transfer was made to a Stephen Fairbairn on 19/11/1904.

      After this, postal directories show Mrs Henning at Motley, west of Toowoomba while Mr F. Henning was at Kynuna. From 1905 - 1907 his address was Motley and Springside. The two boys were baptised at Hughenden on 15/11/1899 (Presbyterian) and the next three children were born there.

      They were unfortunate in striking droughts in Queensland and gave up the attempt to settle there and returned to Western Australia. They were on a farm at Koomberkine in the Dowerin District when the sixth of their children was born in March 1906 and that same year Mr Henning of Koomberkine lent his big new buggy to the research team he conducted to look into the suitability of agriculture in the Cowcowing area. Mr F. Frazer, the secretary of the Progress Association drove the buggy over the thin stumpy "snake" tracks. They remained at Koomberkine.

      Janet died aged 54 years at Dowerin - on 19/6/1930. Frederick also died in Dowerin - his 80th year on 5th July 1941.
