|Edna, Daphne, Thelma & George attended the Finnis Primary School, riding to & fro on horseback. When Max was ready for school their parents brought a horse-drawn vehicle and the children (later including the youngest, John) drove to school in Strathalbyn. Here they were able to buy the fresh bread needed to cut their daily lunches. (ref p83 of Rachel's section of the McDonald family history) |

WALTER JOHN TUCKER, Farmer and Grazier, SANDERGROVE
This gentleman was born in Somersetshire, England, in 1839, and is the eldest son of George Tucker, who arrived here with his wife about 1841, they having left the subject of our sketch with relatives in England.
He subsequently came out in 1851 per barque BERNICA , and on leaving school turned his attention to dairying with his father, and later on engaged in agriculture as well.
On the decease of his father he inherited the landed property of his estate which contained 1600 acres. This he has since increased to 2000 acres, which he uses for agricultural and grazing purposes, and finds it profitable to carry on the two in conjunction.
He keeps about 1300 sheep. It is worthy of mention that the success of Mr. Tucker?s father, who landed in Victoria with only a few pounds, was due to his own exertions , and his example has not been lost on his six sons, two of whom are in Victoria.
Mr. W.J.Tucker is a member of the Strathalbyn District Council, also a member of the local Agricultural Society , where he has successfully competed, and is a member of the School Board of Advice.
He was married in 1871 to Miss McDonald, of South Australia, and has a large family of sons and daughters.
He is a supporter of protection to colonial industries and progressive land tax.
