    Notes 
    • Claud received his education at Inkermann and Owen Schools. Until his marriage he helped on the farm at Mallala (except for a period of other work during a drought). A farm was purchased belonging to the Bussenschutt family, westward of Mallala. Claud and Jean spent their farming years there. Two paddocks contained much stone and after Harvest for some years Claud carted this for road maintenance with a trolley and horses. There were neat yards of cracked stone by the roadside and patient men who sat and cracked that stone with a hammer for hours each day.
      A few years of retirement were spent in the township of Mallala in the house built for his parents and much of the stone used came from Claud's property. Claud and Jean were always interested in the church and worshipped regularly. Jean convened stalls for fetes and entertained visiting ministers and students.
      After a few years of widowhood Claud remarried Mrs Gladys Holder. He served the church as a trustee and was secretary for some years. During these years a vestry was added and a great deal of thought and work was put into this building. He was also green keeper for the bowling club for several years and thoroughly enjoyed this open air employment and took great pride in it. His bowls were presented to the Mallala Club after his death. After a stroke in 1973 he was very much handicapped. He died in Mallala Hospital. (The Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)
