    Notes 
    • Effie and Norman started their married life in Cummins. Norm was a ganger in the South Australian Railways, then moved to Ungarra with a short stay in Minnipa. The family then moved to Thevenard in 1920. In 1930 he was transferred to Poochera. The family's final shift was in 1933 when they moved back to Cummins. Norm retired from the Railways in 1955 and went to live in Port Lincoln with Effied for ten years before he died. he was a keen fisherman and caught a lot of schnapper off ;the Thevenard jetty. he loved hunting rabbits too. These helped to supplement the meat supply. Having ten growing children to feed was no easy task. Norm was a member of the Cummins Rifle Club and competed in many competitions and won many trophies.
