Children




2. Archibald Mackinnon was born in 1837 in Portree, Isle Of Skye, Scotland, was christened on 5 Apr 1837 in Portree, Isle Of Skye, Scotland, died on 2 May 1912 in Mildura Vic at age 75, and was buried 5 May1912 in Mildura Vic.

General Notes: Archibald McKinnon was born to Donald McKinnon and Mary McLeod at Portree on the Isle of Skye, Scotland on 5th. April, 1837.
In 1840, the colony of South Australia was in its infancy, the first settlers having arrived only 4 years earlier, and there was an urgent need for people of all trades to develop the infrastructure and provide the labour to enable the colony to develop. Scotland was an ideal recruiting ground for a wide variety of labourers, including agricultural labourers,shepherds, bakers, blacksmiths, braziers and tinmen, smiths, shipwrights, boatbuilders, butchers, wheelwrights, sawyers, stonemasons and many others.
Discovering the possibility of finding work in the new colony and no doubt affected by the "lean 40's" that made life very challenging for people in Scotland at that time, Donald and Mary set out on their journey to the new land with their young son Archibald. aged 3 years.
Donald, a farmer, and Mary settled in Clare in the north of South Australia where they leased land (recorded in 1853) and became farmers.
Later two more sons were born, Lochlan Alexander in 1842, and John in 1844.
The three brothers lived in Clare with their parents and, when old enough, went to work as labourers/shepherds on the large property near Clare called Hill River Station.
Archibald continued to live and work in and around Clare until he was about 28 years old and then it seems from records that he moved to NSW where he worked in various roles (contractor, drover) on large properties. One such property was named "Mulara Station", on the banks of the River Darling. He was working on this property at the time of his marriage to Helena Johnson ( a house-maid born in Brighton SA).Their marriage took place at Pooncarrie on 3rd July 1873.
Following the birth of their first child, a daughter, Florence Helena, the family moved to Wentworth NSW where their other six children were born.
Archibald did not return to Clare to live, but spent the majority of his life in NSW which was a period of approximately 50 years. There appears to have been limited contact with others in his family as time went by.
There is no available information to fill out the details of this lengthy period of Archibald's life, but considering the fact, that at his death, as at the time of his marriage, his occupation was listed as "labourer', "contractor", or "drover": it is safe to assume that he followed pursuits such as these during that time.
At this time there is only one anecdote available regarding Archibald, and that is that he was a "tall man with distinctly red hair". He must also have spent long periods away from his family following his occupation as a drover, and in fact, at the time of his wife's death in Gawler South Australia in 1909, he was away droving and his location was unknown.
In 1912,aged 75 years, Archibald McKinnon died of a heart condition whilst staying at the home of his son Hurtle McKinnon and his wife Myrtle, who lived at Mildura, in Victoria.

Post script:
There is one puzzle regarding Archibald which until now remains unsolved, and that regards his first born son, Francis George.There is as yet no record found of his birth, however,it is recorded that this little boy died on Hill River Station aged 3 years 10 months (thus born in 1871) of Scarlatina whilst in the care of his grandmother Mary. Although Archibald is recorded as his father, there is no mention of the name of his mother on record of death nor any records of an earlier marriage of Archibald's.
Whilst Archibald was a not a man of property or highly educated, it seems certain that his work as a drover was an important contribution to the life of the early colony, for without men such as he, the important work of developing the agricultural potential of the state would not have been realized.

General Notes: Harriett Kersley arrived at Pt Adelaide on the "Shackamaxon" on 19th Jan 1853 with her family. They were Church of England religion. Travelling were Francis aged 45. Emily 43, Francis 13, Harrriet 10, Frances 8, Mary Ann 3, Elizabeth Caroline travelled as a domestic servant, aged 20 yrs, also Emily aged 16 yrs. Seemed to be the practise to list older children separately as they were adults. The Shackamaxon sailed from Liverpool on 4th October 1852. It was an American owned ship and sailed in company with the Constane and the Lady Elrington (both bound for Melbourne), the Mary Cannon bound for Calcutta and the ship Indus, bound for Hong-Kong with troops. It carried almost 700 passengers. On the journey nineteen births were recorded and nearly 10% of the passengers, six adults and the rest children, died from Scarlet Fever. There was a Court of Enquiry into the competence of the surgeon-superintendent. Dr Edward D. Allison. It appears that the results were never published. Francis occupation was listed as an Agriculture and Railway Labourer and birth place as Surrey.
Most of the immigrants travelled in steerage accomodation, between the upper deck and the cargo hold. Shipowners had found emigrants a new source of profit and had built a flimsy, temporary floor beneath the main deck and on top of the cargo hold.Often it was so far down in the hold that water would seep up through the planking and rats scurried about. Ventilation and light were poor and came only from the hatches when they were open. During a storm, access to the main deck was impossible as hatches were battened down tightly. A storm could last for a few days or up to a week or more but the hatches would stay down. Lights could not be used during the storm because of the danger of fires. Only the wealthy migrants could afford to travel in cabins. Most of the new settlers though stayed in the steerage section of the ship between decks, which were often flooded. The long and uncomfortable trip tried everyone's patience and quarrels and drunkenness were regular. The Kersley family were not wealthy.

The children were again baptised, this time as Catholic when they moved into Oodnadatta after the flu epidemic in 1919. One time Alexander was out shooting and his son Fred decided to play at dressing up as an emu, all of a sudden someone said, "Where's Fred" and they realised that it was him on the hill that Alexander was aiming at. Son, Bill remembers how skilled he was with horses, he saw him break a horse once; he rode it to a standstill and others had been trying and were bucked off. He said it was the best piece of riding he had ever seen. The particular horse was really wild. He thought he was going to be thrown off into the wood heap. Alexander got face cancer in 1919, and lanced it to treat it. It spread & he finally rode his horse to the Inland Mission Station at Oodnadatta to see Dr Flynn (see book Flynn of the Inland) it was too late. He was sent to Pt Augusta hospital & then on to Royal Adelaide Hospital in Adelaide. He wrote to his family from Pt Aug saying how he was looking out from the window at the sea. (The letter cannot be found at this time). It was from there that he was transferred down to the Royal Adelaide Hospital. Whilst Alexander was in hospital with face cancer, influenza struck his whole family. They were lucky to be saved. A black fellow came in with the news from Mary that they were all ill. The Sister from the Inland Mission Station at Oodnadatta went out to help & assisted them into a wagonette. The axle broke crossing a creek bed; some of the children were brought in by a station owner's car and the remainder walked in approx. 30 miles. (See book The Man from Oodnadatta). The chest containing opals and other personnel possessions had to be left behind; it has not been recovered. The Royal Adelaide Hospital noted on his death certificate that he had 8 children, with 1 male deceased. It should have read 8 children plus 2 children deceased (Alexander Jnr and John) Information gained in March 2000 shows Alexander James was buried at West Terrace Cemetery in Adelaide in an unleased plot, called an ordinary ground plot. There was no entitlement to the family and therefore no headstone. The plot was hence leased to a family called Potter on 27th March 1950 where there are now three bodies buried. He died of face cancer in the Consumptive Home, Hindmarsh Ward, North Terrace, Adelaide, his Death Certificate states "carcinoma face 18 months exhaustion." The eldest daughter Kathleen was with him when he died. He was trying to tell her something, but could not be understood.

Noted events in his life were:

He worked as a Drover & Stockdealer.

Alexander had a relationship Alice Cobb.

General Notes: Alice Cobb was an aboriginal from a tribe near Oodnadatta. She fathered a child by Alexander James McKinnon in 1890. She had extra rations from the property and special attention.

Mary was born on 5 Feb 1881 in Virginia SA, died on 19 Sep 1964 in Adelaide SA at age 83, and was buried on 21 Sep 1964 in Centennial Park Cemetery, Adelaide SA.

General Notes: Lived & married at Hill River Station. Moved to Charlotte Waters when she married Alexander. Mary ran the Govt. store and Alexander the Govt. Bores there. She was terrorised by an Afghan wanting tobacco in the store who was chased off by one of the blacks. Lived in huts near water holes with the children while Alexander was droving. A neighbours wife died in childbirth & the father brought the baby over to Mary. She had a new baby herself so breast-fed them both. (See Man from Oodnadatta by Jean Whitla. Mary and the children got influenza in 1918, (see Everylady's Journal 1923, her husband Alexander died of face cancer at the same time and people from Oodnadatta took up a collection and sent Mary & the children to her mothers in Kadina by train. They hadn't seen each other for some time & didn't recognise each other. Mary had baby John at Oodnadatta when she had the flu, he lived 2 days. After moving to Kadina she met & married Sam Stevens who was a miner there. They moved to Adelaide and lived in Carrington Street, Adelaide. She died in 1964. There are many stories we are just learning about as descendants of Alexander James McKinnon and his wife Mary. I hope the following is of interest to others.

Thank you for your kind wishes. We all worked together to have a very meaningful celebration of Mum's long life. She was almost 93 years old and was ready for rest. In the end, she really lost the will to live. However, even up to Christmas she still enjoyed a lively Kris Kringle celebration with all the Adelaide contingent of the family. For the family record, she passed away peacefully at the Helping Hand Centre North Adelaide on Jan 12th. 2006. Her funeral service was held at the Brougham Place Uniting Church on Sat Jan 21st. People came from as far away as Perth, Kalgoorlie,Sydney and Melbourne. She would have loved it. We finished the celebration by releasing 99 lovely pink balloons into the air. It was a wonderful spectacle .Then on Thurs Jan 26th her ashes were laid alongside those of our father Rev Harry Parrott at the Keith cemetery.
Love Ruth (daughter)

"Holidays when I was young"
I was born in 1913 at a time when the world was so unsettled and soon to go to war with Germany. Men were being enlisted to go to the war and women were left alone to bring up their children. No one had much money. Not until I was eight years old, did I ever have a holiday away from my home at Norwood. My father did not go to the war, he had a job but not much money.
Transport was by tramcar or by train. Some had horse and cart but not many except in the country. There were very few people who owned cars and they were very rich.
When I was eight, I was very ill with Diphtheria as was my mother. My dear dad decided we must have a change. My great uncle at Port Lincoln with a family of five invited us to go there.
We travelled on a boat called the "Quorner". It took all night and a morning to do this. I didn't really enjoy this. I was seasick and so was my mother. I'll never forget the heaving up and down. I thought the ship would sink and I hoped it would, to get me out of my misery. The ship didn't sink and we arrived at this lovely beach town on a lovely day. All my troubled feelings were gone.
There were five children around our age and I'd never experienced being in a large boisterous family at all. We stayed a month and each day go home very hungry and have a family meal of nice roast meat etc. We always, always had some Christmas pudding. If you were lucky and careful as you ate you'd strike with your teeth, a coin (mostly a half penny or a penny or, luck me, a threepence or even a sixpence). Very rarely did I make it but one or two did, and there would be a shilling or a two shilling piece.
Then at night we'd make up our own concerts. Our parents (not my Dad because he had to stay at his workplace) would dress up in finery and come like important guests to applaud us. I remember singing something to them. Then at 9 o'clock it was off to bed. I loved this, to be in a room with other children.
One day we spent a whole day at a nearby beach and had our lunch on the beach. We ran along the beach and the boys found an old barge close to the shore. It had holes in it but this was lots of fun as some of us got into the boat and bailed out water. We'd get in and out enjoying it all and at last walking home very happy.
At last the month was ended and we went home on the "Wandana". My father met us at Pt Adelaide with a horse and trap to take us home. I'd never seen such a ride. The trap had a whip on the side to hurry the horse up if it got too slow. It didn't need to be whipped and he'd clip clop along the road. We were so happy, feeling important as we thought people were admiring us. Our parents did their best to make us happy in the holidays. We'd be taken once in the holidays to see a film at West's pictures theatre in Rundle Street. We saw films for children when Mickey Rooney was then a child and the others who are now dead or very old. Also there was a theatre in King William Street called "The Majestic". Here there were pantimines when the heroine was played by a man. We loved this.
Also we took a cottage once at Henley Beach. We loved getting up early running along the beach and paddling in the water. We watched the tide go out and later in the day - come in. We also went once a year to Bridgewater for a picnic with another family. We'd play hidey, explore or sit on rocks in the shallow water of the creek, eating egg sandwiches and picking up flat stones or pebbles to take home. We liked these trips because we went and came back on the steam train. We got so excited to hear the train coming and blowing the whistle, watching the smoke come out in white billows.
We also went to church on Sundays, went to Christian Endeavour (which we liked) and then to church and Sunday school. We'd spend three months leaning certain hymns which were bright for the annual SS Aniversary held on two Sundays to record attendances. A man called Stan Whicks used to give Chalk talks - stories illustrated in a clever way by drawing with a chalk on a large screen. I'd go home and used the door of what we a called a W.C. (toilet) with my own chalk and draw our own stories.
Later on I learned to play tennis and our Saturdays were always happy, we'd go to the pictures at night.
In season, on the weekends, my father would take me for a walk and we'd go where the blackberries were and pick lots and lots for my mother to make into jam.
Another way of having a good time was when the Sunday school leaders organised a picnic for us at Kensington Gardens. We'd sometimes go in a large dray pulled along by big horses. We'd alight, run to the creek, take off our shoes and socks, paddle and catch tadpoles. The tadpoles we'd take home in a bottle and feed them grass - hoping the poor things would live.
We had no radio in my early life but later on we did. We had no T.V. but spent winter evenings playing games by the wood fire. In the hot summer months we'd often sleep out on the lawn and my father would tell us stories of when he was a boy living close to the River Darling. He'd give us all kinds of yarns and repeat them but never the same. I don't know if they were true or not. October 1998

General Notes: Bill was the first white child to be born at Charlotte Waters. Had one brother Fred & 6 sisters. Did not have any schooling as he was the eldest boy and needed to work and there was no school in the district. He couldn't read & write but managed to do well. He fell in to a pot of boiling water when a child which had been put down for the blacks. The flannel pajamas he wore took the skin off when they were removed. His father rode the horse to the next station to get Brandy for the shock & they believed that is what saved his life. They thought he would never walk or talk again & was lucky to live. He was 2 months premature and was raised on goats milk and fed with an eyedropper. He was friendly with a black man called Nelson, named as he only had one eye. Nelson would do a back flip of the horse from the recoil of the gun. His son Bob said, his father told him about the lightning storms up North and when it struck a tree the aborigines would then use the wood for spears as it was so hard. He was a good stockman at an early age and was asked to join the Police force because of his knowledge of horses. He went to night school & was going well until someone asked him to write on the blackboard. He was so embarrassed that he never went back. When the family moved down from Oodnadatta after the influenza epidemic, they lived with Mary's mother at Kadina. He also worked in the mines at Wallaroo. He worked on farms for most of his adult life until moving to Adelaide where he worked at Holdens. It was in Adelaide that he met and married his wife Muriel. When the depression started Muriel & Bill moved to Moonta where Bill was offered work on farms. In later years he took up a courier run and we will never know how he found his way around without the ability to read. He died of a heart attach at Football Park, Adelaide watching a football match.

The axle broke in the first creek bed and some were brought in by a station owner's car the other children walked the 30 miles. At the age of13, Madeline was reported to be so poorly that the teaching sisters thought it was only worthwhile teaching her religion in order that she could make her Holy Communion. They did not expect her to live very long. This explains why Madeline did not have a good education & could not read or write.

Without being able to read any patterns or recipes she was gifted with her hands & could sew, crochet & cook with finesse.

Daughter Margaret remembers teaching her brother Roy school lessons and riding a camel she had there. Later they moved to Peterborough, Yongola and Strathalbyn droving sheep when pastures were very sparse. They drove sheep on the sides of the road to feed them, for station owners. Madeline worked and walked as hard as any man and at the end of the day her feet were covered in blisters. Later they moved to Mt Compass where they were dairying. They moved to the city where in an effort to save enough money for a house, she took in borders and washed dishes at a milk bar called "Segalises" in Rundle Street. Once the money was raised the family moved to their house in Woodville with daughter Margaret, son in law Vic, two children and two borders, named Bernie and Tom.
