    Notes 
    • Birth details obtained from South Australian Births 1842-1906, Book 703, Page 363 District Code UpW.
      Wilfred was thrown from a horse and killed. his father's bull had escaped and Wilfred hopped on a horse to go and find it. It was dusk, and neither he nor his horse saw the single strand of barbed wire marking the neighbour's boundary. the horse tripped and Wilfred was thrown, breaking his neck, killing him outright. It took his parents a long time to get over his death. he apparently had a lovely singing voice, was a happy, busy boy and was dearly loved and missed. (the Tucker Family in Australia, 1992)
