    When the depression struck in 1929 they had to leave Brinkley and couldn't get other work and ended up losing everything as the depression deepened. They retumed to Kongorong SA and lived with Lindsay's parents for a time and eventually Lindsay got work with one of the Government schemes of the day.

    They moved to Mount Schank SA about 1935 and then to Allendale East about 1940. In 1943 they moved to German Creek (Kongorong) and worked for Jim Chant, Madie's father. In 1946 the property was divided among the family and Lindsay and Madie took over a portion of the eastern end ol the property and continued to work part of it till Lindsay died in 1960.
