unable to find entry to Oz somewhere before 1855 when he married Rosina Bradley in Portland 1855.

They lived and had children penola Stn until 1866 when they farmed at Drumborg, Victoria with Moore and Bradley famlies.

Some family items, such as bible, held at Bower Bird Museum until death of owner more recently, and family of still has.

Family oral history spoke of him being in merchant ancy and 'jumping ship'.
