  • Notes 
    • From Violet Turner 1967. Page 13
      Ernest, the second son, was apprenticed to a chemist (Mr. Parker of Hindmarsh), and later to Bickfords of Currie Street.  He was doing well and was about to take his final exams when he decided to give up the chemistry and go to the land.

      Page 14
      He took a farm at Mount Compass which he later passed over to one of his sons. He then became proprietor of a service station at Somerton. He married Eva Hender (born 11 January 1881) daughter of a farmer of Cooke's Plains. the ceremony taking place on the 26th March 1914 in the Cooke's Plains Methodist Church.

      Whilst living at Somerton, Ernest became a circuit steward of the Molesly Street Methodist Church. There were four sons. Eva passed away in the Adelaide Hospital on the 5th December 1963 at the age of 82. Ern had inherited his father's asthma. and after Eval' death, he became unable to care for himself and had to enter the Helping Hand Home (Methodist) in North Adelaide. But a lung cancer grew through the years of coughing and Ern died in the Adelaide Hospital on 17th June 1965. He was buried with Eva in the Brighton cemetry.
