While the family were living at Richmond Street Kedron, Lily had her youngest daughter, Fanny Rose in September 1910. Her first name was after Walter's cousin in England and Rose because roses were blooming in the garden. About 1916, the family moved to Bunyah Road Everton Park, about 2 miles from Enoggera Station, where they had a couple of acres of land and Fanny grew up helping in the house and driving down in the goat cart to Strathpine Road to the standpipe there, to get drums of water for the household. She left school in 1923 and at times, she was probably co-opted to help out in the forge as a blacksmith's striker for Walter.

As soon as she came of age in 1931, Fanny left home to work as a cook in Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane, and at the time of her marriage was living in Amelia Street Valley. Her husband Reinhold Fritz "Rhiny" came from a family of farmers of German descent, and they were married in Brisbane in 1943 at Registry Office with her sister Jane and Emily's friend Etta Giblin as witnesses.

Afterwards they went to live on the family farm at Teviotville near Boonah south west of Brisbane. Rhiny's father had been a prosperous man and had left each of the children a farm of their own - Rhiny had the original homestead, with the proviso that if he left it would be sold and the proceeds divided amongst his brothers and sisters. My father Daniel and mother Rose went to stay with them at one time as did Ted and Beryl and family, after Ted left Mt. Morgan Mines.

Their first child Ruth was born in November 1944 and Fanny Rose sent my mother a photo with baby Ruth in one arm and a huge koala in the other, probably taken at Lone Pine Santuary. Janelle named after Fanny's sister Jane was born in 1948 and had a tragic life. When only a babe in arms, she contracted meningitis and the doctors believed it happened during a long journey on a very crowded train. She was severely mentally and physically retarded, but Fanny took care of her at home until she died in 1962.

The family left the farm and went to live in Brisbane to get medical care for Janelle and here in 1951 Bernard Daniel was born - he was named after Fanny's big brother Daniel. At one stage they lived at Beams and Mueller Road Boondal west of Sandgate and Rhiny got work with Brisbane City Council and though he left at times to work with private contractors, he usually went back to his original job.

Janelle died in 1962 and in 1965, with only Bernard then a school boy at home, Fanny got a job, helping with handicapped children. The fourteen years she had spent looking after Janelle stood her in good stead in her new career and at that time the family lived at 'Mizpah' Markwell Street Auchenflower.

Even after Rhiny died in 1971, Fanny kept on working until 1975, when she took to travelling instead, and used to visit her children in Hamilton every year until 1987, when finally she settled down in New Zealand. For a while she stayed alternatively with Ruth and Bernard and in 1990 celebrated her 80th birthday in Hamilton, but of late her health has declined and she has had to be admitted to a nursing home.

Ruth left the family at the end of 1963 and went on a working holiday to New Zealand and finally got a job in the office of Hamilton Dairy Co. Here she met Harry Tipping and came back to Brisbane to be married in September 1965 and then went back to live in Hamilton, where Harry was in business as a builder. Harry and Ruth have 6 children and they too have a Daniel in the family - Daniel James born in 1948. Their eldest daughter Sandra married Russel Brown in 1988 and Ruth and Harry now have seven grandchildren to love.

Bernard was always mechanically minded, like his grandfather Walter and he too ended up in New Zealand and in 1972 married a New Zealand lass, Heather Green in Wellington. Later on, he joined Harry and Ruth in Hamilton and became an A grade mechanic, working with a fork lift service and now has his own business called Fleet Hire. He and Heather have 4 children including their own Daniel - Daniel Aaron born in 1979.
