McCALLUM, Duncan Died 24 September 1892 Duncan and Mary McCallum, came to Australia from Argyleshire, Scotland, in the sailing ship Dauntless, arriving on July 10, 1840. They settled on a dairy farm at Modbury, and their first two children were born in a tent. Later on these two attended school at Callington, but left early in life to assist in working their father's farm, at Woodside. Subsequently land was selected at The Springs, near Mount Gambier, and the whole family settled there in April, 1864. In 1875 the father took up three sections' of land at Murrimbum, Millicent, and at his death three of his sons, Dugald, John, and Duncan, each received a section. Duncan (GlencoeWest) and John (Tantanoola) both died in 1923. Dugald purchased Duncan's property years previously, and made a success of farming and grazing on the two sections.

Buried Millicent Cemetery
Duncan and Mary McCallum came out from Scotland, in the Dauntless, arriving at Holdfast Bay early in the forties. They came out under engagement to Angus McLaine, who had a dairy farm at Ardtonish, now known at Modbury. He brought several other young people out besides the McCallums to work his farm. The McCallums stayed with McLaine for about two years, and then Duncan engaged with the South Australian Company, which had sheep at Gumeracha. as a shepherd, having had considerable experience with sheep in the old country. After a stay at Gumeracha, the McCallums were moved by the company with their flock of sheep to a place known as Bleakside, a few miles east of Woodside. In 1845 they were moved again, this time to Woodside. The township was not laid out until some years later. The hut the family lived in was the only one in the neighborhood, and was situated on the western side of the Onkaparinga River, just opposite to where the Adelaide Milk Supply Company's depot was to be built. Lost In The Bush Hugh McCallum, at the age of five years, had his first adventure in the Australian bush. One morning he slipped away from home, and it was not until midday that he was missed. His father was absent at the time, taking some sheep to Lake Albert, where the company had another station The mother by some means sent word to the policeman then stationed at Gumeracha, and he with a few men from the locality began a search for the missing boy. In the meantime little Hugh wandered away through Inverbrackie, towards Mount Barker. At about midnight some boys who were out 'possuming 'came upon him between Mount Barker and Nairne. He had covered seven miles, a fair distance for a boy of five. The lads wanted to know his name and where he came from, but he could tell them neither. They took him to their home, gave him something to eat, and put him to bed. The name of the people who sheltered him was Kingston. At that time these parts were but sparsely populated. The few residents that lived near the Kingston family were all known to one another. Next morning the Kingstons were discussing means of finding out to whom the lost boy belonged. At breakfast Hugh mentioned the name of an old widow woman who was well known to the people, and who lived at the place called Western Branch, a few miles west of which Woodside is now situated. After breakfast a young man who was staying with the Kingston family was deputed to start with the boy for the house of the old widow, to see whether she could identify him. Some time during the afternoon, while passing through Inverbrackie, they were met by a man who knew Hugh, and who was one of the party out searching. Thus there was, no need to go on to the widow's place. The McCallums stayed at Woodside until 1851, in which year they had to move yet again, this tune to a section which lay three miles east of Woodside, near to where the Bird-In-Hand gold mine was afterwards discovered. 'During my parents' stay at Woodside,' wrote Hush McCallum, 'my father often walked through the Tiers to Adelaide to purchase what clothing was needed for the home, leaving Woodside at nightfall and reaching the city in time for breakfast. He would return home carrying a large pack on his back.' A Shepherd's Lot As the South Australian Company had a sheep station on the River Bremer , below where Kanmantoo now is, the McCallums were shifted to Scott's Creek, a little to the south of Nairne, where there were two flocks of sheep. Duncan McCallum was put in charge of one flock. Both flocks had to be guarded at night, as the dingoes were apt to get into the yard and do some killing. The watch-boxes were made of palings— lengths of stringy-bark split into widths of 6 inches by i of an inch, and of any length desirable. Hurdles were used to make the yards, and had to be moved two or three times a week, so as to have clean yards. As the yards were shifted so also were the watch boxes. At the end of 1840 or beginning of 1850, the overseer on Bremer River resigned, and the company offered the position to Duncan McCallum, who accepted and so left Scott's Creek. Aborigines used frequently to pass by the station, and some used to camp near at hand for a week or two, on their way from the Murray to Adelaide to get the blankets which were given them by the Government. Gold And Copper When the gold rushes broke out in 1851, a number of the station hands got the gold fever, and the new overseer was soon at his wits' end to get new men to carry on the work. The flocks had to be enlarged, and the shepherds who stayed on had to have higher wages. Hugh with his elder brother used to walk to school at Callington every morning. 'I well remember,' he says, 'when some of the business people coming home from the diggings exhibited their nuggets of gold in their shop windows during the day. We schoolboys during the dinner hour would go and look at the gold. Nearly all the men went to the diggings, and their wives carried on the business.' The copper mines were in full swing at Callington at this tune. The ruins of the old smelting works have remained there for many years. The mines extended up the Bremer as far as Kanmantoo. They ceased to be worked when there was a big drop in the price of copper in 1879. There was a married couple living near the mines at the time of which I am writing, and with these people Duncan MoCallum made arrangements for his children to have dinner every schoolday. 'My brother and I,' writes Hugh again, 'used to go after dinner to see the smelted ore running out from, the furnace into moulds made with sand.' As so many of the station hands left for the Victorian diggings, the two eldest McCallum boys had to be taken from school to mind the flocks, Hugh was made a cowboy. After the milking was over he had to take the cows out on the run. He had to bring them in every evening and pen up the calves, which were allowed to run with their mothers during the day. Once when out with the cows, despite the fact that he had never learned to swim, Hugh, feeling the heat, determined that he would have a splash in a waterhole. He got out into deep water and would most certainly have been drowned had it not been for a large tree which was bending over the water and whose branches happened to hang above the place where the lad, was struggling. After going down once or twice he was able to grab one of the branches. There were a number of very large waterholes on the Bremer River at this time, and in the winter the river used to be in high flood, so much so that no one could cross it. Floods And Daring On one occasion, in the middle of winter, a flock was caught on the opposite side of the river from where the McCallum homestead was. Duncan McCallum arranged with a blackfellow to go across with his canoe. and take charge of the flock until the river went down. The native launched his boat and was just going to start across the water when the craft caught on the root of a tree and went under. The blackfellow sprang to the bank and landed.. Then, not to be beaten, he stripped off his shirt, rolled it around his hand, and grasping a fire stick in the same hand, he waded into the water. He then swam across, with one hand, holding the firestick and shirt in the other above his head. He took the flock out on the run, and brought them home again in the evening. Needless to say, he was amply rewarded with a good supply of flour, tea, sugar and tobacco. The natives that stayed on Bremer River station were very trustworthy. They were splendid horsemen, and were like ducks in the water. As the shearing season came round, the shearers engaged to clip the flocks were Germans from Lobethal They would shear the sheep and gather and press the wool, so that it was ready to be sent to Port Adelaide. In 1852, the South Australian Company sold this station to John Baker, of Morialta who had a station higher up the Bremer , at a place called Harrowgate, Duncan McCallum, however, still retained the post of -overseer at Bremer station. But a year later, when the Harrowgate overseer was moved to elsewhere, Duncan McCallum was transferred to Harrowgate. Then, in 1854, he finally realised an ambition he had cherished for a long time, by removing to a farm of his own near Woodside. Starting A Farm To start farming, bullocks had to be bought, also plough, harrows and dray. These were all made by local trades men at Woodside. Duncan McCallum had always been accustomed to working among stock, and consequently his first attempt at ploughing was not remarkably successful — that is, in the matter of straight ploughing. The plough was a wooden' one, and the beam would be broken or pulled off whenever the share of the implement went under a root. The land was of a rich nature and returned good crops, which had to be hand-reaped with a sickle, 'a work,' says Hugh McCallum, 'we boys detested After being stacked the crops had to be thrashed with a 'flail, rather a slow process. ' But in those days the acreage under crop would be very small, varying from 20 to 60 or 70 acres. Duncan McCallum, after a few years on the farm, had a large roller made from a red gum tree. The roller was 12 ft- long, about 2.1/2ft. In diameter at one end, and about 9 inches at the other, and was grooved from end to end. The small end was attached to a strong post let into the ground. To do this a bolt was driven into the small end of the roller with a swivel and ring to go over the post; The roller had to be worked by a horse attached to the big end and walked round in a circle. The sheaves of wheat would be laid inside the -circle, and the horse would be driven round and round for about half an hour. Then the sheaves would be turned and the horse sent round again. The grooved roller would take all the grain out of the straw. After a few years, threshing machines were imported from England and this was a,great boon to those wheat farmers who had a large acre- age under crop. Hugh McCallum tells of the first stripper that worked at Woodside. A farmer by the name of John Grieve and his brother, who was a tradesman, made the machine. To steer it a man had to walk behind, the machine being drawn by six sturdy bullocks. Ploughing Matches. Ploughing matches in those days were held in every district, and Hugh McCallum whose father presented him with a £7 Iron plough at the age of 15, was very ambitious to try out his luck. On the occasion of the first match, of the 1867 season, Hugh and his brother started out one morning before day light with four bullocks, dray and plough, for. Mount Torrens, where the contest was to be held. Then were three classes of contestants namely, champions, men and boys There was only one other boy besides Hugh in the boys' class, and he had ploughed the year before. The ground being rather stiff. It took all young McCallum's strength to manage the plough. However, there being two prizes, he was sure of the second, which he got 2pounds The next week there was another match, held at Woodside, where the two lads met again to try conclusions. This time the first prize— £4— 'went to Hugh, The following week, again, there was another match at Mount Pleasant, In which Hugh participated, meeting the same rival as before and defeating him the second time, for the first prize of £4. For three years in succession Hutch was successful in the boys' class, and then be had to -enter the men's class at the age of 18. Here, however, he was not so successful. It is an interesting fact that in those days Mr. J. D. Cave ploughed, in the men's class with a two-wheeled plough, the first seen in the district, and imported by Taxford and Co. All cultivation for cereals In South Australia, until the wheeled plough appeared about 1857, was done with the 'swing plough,' which had a short beam, short hatches and a long mould board. The width and depth of the furrows was regulated by the man at the stilts. The draft was adjustable, which helped the ploughman in his control of the plough. Some ploughs had a presser foot, which limited the depth of the furrow. The coulter was often dispensed with, in which case the plough tore up the ground. All the early ploughing matches were carried through with the swing plough. Duncan McCallum began using a swing plough, in 1854, that had the name of 'Avery' on the mould-board. Later it was furnished with one wheel, which regulated the depth of the furrows. Later still it was equipped with two wheels; and when it was supplanted by the Ransome and Hornsby two wheeled ploughs, the mould-board was sold for old metal, and the beam was converted into woodsplitters' wedges. Settlers could not wait for ploughs to be brought all the way from Britain by sea, and consequently demands were made upon local tradesmen to set to work and manufacture. The completed article that they turned out seems very strange today. The beam, foot and stilts, were all wood strapped to iron. Even a mouldboard could be added out of a sawpit slab In a few minutes. The round shape of the slab could be taken advantage of for the shape of the mouldboard. Such a plough was built by the wheelwrights, and the black smiths made the ironwork, including the coulter and the share. About 50 years ago now, ploughing matches came to an end, because farmers discovered that a piece of pretty ploughing did not grow as good a crop (so says Mr. Hugh McCallum) as the work of the ordinary ploughman. But, while ploughing matches lasted they brought the farmers together on the fields, and at the supper which followed, when speeches were made and toasts were drunk with cordiality. They must have been grand days, those early days of the State, when our farmers were becoming well established on their land, and when they were be coming consolidated into a new and individual type of British' citizens. So absorbing have I found Hugh McCallum's reminiscences that I have devoted the whole of this article to dealing with the memories of his child hood and boyhood days. Next week I shall complete his life story with anecdotes of the fifties, sixties and seventies.

McCALLUM, Mary nee CAMERON Died 02 March 1898 at Mount Gambier, SA
A GOOD OLD COLONIST. Mrs. Mary McCallum, who died at the residence of her daughter (Mrs. J. McArthur), Mount Gambier, on Wednesday, March 2, at the age of 80 years, came to the colony with her late husband, Mr. Duncan McCallum, from Scotland in the ship Dauntless in 1840, under engagement with Mr. McLean, who purchased a lot of land near the Dry Creek, which he named Ardtoinish. There they resided about three years and then entered the employ of the South Australian Company, living on the banks of the Onkaparinga where the township of Woodside now stands. Here several of their children were born. Subsequently Mr. McCallum was appointed to manage a station for the company on the Bremer and remained there several years, stopping after it was sold to the late Mr. John Baker. He next purchased land near Woodside, but in 1863 he sold his farm and removed to Mount Gambier, where he had purchased land from the Government, and here be combined agriculture with dairying for about 10 years. Mr. McCallum was one of the first who selected land in the drainage district of Millicent, but after staying there for some years he went with his wife to live at Mount Gambier. He died about six years ago at the age of 90. Mrs. McCallum, who was much respected by a large circle of friends and acquaintances, was buried in the Millicent Cemetery on Friday, the services being conducted by the Rev. F. G. H. Brady ( Presbyterian), the remains being followed to the grave by a large number of friends and relatives. Mrs. McCallum leaves six sons, three daughters, and 30 grandchildren. Four of her sons reside in the Millicent district, one daughter (Mrs. R. Long) at Tantanoola, Mrs. McArthur at Mount Gambier, Mrs. A. Tolmie at Adelaide. Mr. Hugh McCallum, of Spalding, is a son, and there is another in Queensland.
The Advertiser Saturday 12 March 1898 page 9
Mr. Archibald McCallum, of Tantanoola, whose death occurred at Mount Gambier recently in his 74th year, was member of a large family whose remarkable record of longevity has not often been equalled. His parents, the late Duncan and Mary McCallum, came to South Australia from Argyllshire, in the sailing ship Dauntless (Capt. McLean), landing at Holdfast Bay on July 10, 1840. They arrived under engagement to Mrs. McLean, who had a dairy farm at Modbury, which she had named Ardtornish. Two years later Mr. McCallum was engaged by the South Australian Company as a Shepherd, residing in turn at Gumeracha, Bleakside, and Woodside. The hut the couple lived in at Woodside was the only one in that neighbourhood, at that time. In 1851 Mr. Mc-Callum was appointed overseer of the Bremer run, and remained in that position after the company sold out to Mr. John Baker, of Morialta, who had stations higher up the Bremer, near Harrogate. Mr. McCallum resigned in 1854, end returned to his farm at Woodside. In 1859, with his son Hugh, he went overland on horseback to Mount Gabbier, in search of land, the journey occupying six days. Mount Gambier land at the time was selling at from £8 to £10 per an acre. This was considered too high, and Mr. McCallum returned to Woodside. A few years later, however, the whole family went to the south-east, and three sections of land at The Springs were selected, the price, being 30/- an acre. The family consisted of six sons and three daughters, and until Mr McCallum died last week there had been no death in the family. Mr. Archibald McCallum took up land at Tantanoola, and was a successful contractor there for a number of years. He has left a widow and a family of five. The ages of his brothers and sisters aggravate 676 years. The members of the family arc:-Messrs. Dugald McCallum (Millicent), born in 1840; Hugh McCallum (Marryatville), 1841; and Alexander McCallum (Goulburn, N.S.W.), 1843; Mrs. Annie Tolmie (Mount Gambier), 1844; Mr. John McCallum (Tantanoola), 1846: and Mesdames Janet McArthur (Dulwich), 1850, and Mary Long (Mount Gambier). 1852, and Mr. Duncan McCallum (Glencoe West), 1854.

McLEISH, Agnes nee McDERMOTT
Mr. G. McLeish's Story. Mr. George McLeish a former well-known resident of Mintaro, will celebrate his eighty-first birthday to-day. Time has dealt kindly with him, for despite many vicissitude and a life full of energy and hard work, he has in a wonderful degree maintained both physical and mental alertness, and at the home of his niece, Mrs. A. W. Brown, of Princes street, Alberton, exhibits an activity in gardening pursuits that is truly astonishing. —Landed in 1840.-- Mr. McLeish's parents were among the earliest colonists in South Australia. They left Glasgow, in the brig Dauntless in 1839. and landed at the Old Port in March of the following year. "My father's first move," he told a reporter, 'was to upper Dry Creek, where he took up a section of land within a mile of Modbury. My recollection of this period is associated with hard work The crosscut saw was constantly in my hands, and at 13 I drove a pair of bullocks, conveying dry wattle for burning into North Adelaide, receiving for each load the handsome sum of 2/6. I did that for months, until we teemed four bullocks, and then I thought I was a man. I carried in sheaoak to the limekilns close to the Windmill Hotel at 15/ a load, and did the same to Magarey's flourmill at Hindmarsh, and to Cook's mill at Hackney. About 1850 father took up some sections close to Mintaro, with allotments in the township. We lived in tents until a three-roomed house was built. The famous Burra Copper Mines had been opened, and I engaged in the cartage of ore to Port Adelaide and Port Wakefield. —Visits to Victorian Goldfields.-- "In the latter end of 1852 news reached us of the gold finds in Victoria. I made three trips there altogether. My two brothers preceded me, and did so well that they sent for my father and myself. I was then 17 years of age. My brother sent us 1 lb. weight of gold to pay our passages. The brig in which we voyaged to Port Melbourne occupied three weeks, and another week was spent in travelling on foot with swags and provisions to the place where my brothers were located. On arrival we found to our disappointment that the claim taken out by them for us had been jumped. It was the irony of fate that the new owners took out of it 40 lb. of the precious metal. My father and I, with four others, made up a prospecting party, but we only just managed to make a living. —Unprofitable Railway Contract-- "The third trip to the goldfields was after my marriage in 1858, this time to Snowy River. My brother-in-law, Mr. John Tickle (now living at Prospect) and I reached Beechworth, and there we met thousands of men coming back from the new rush. We went no further, but bought a claim at Spring Creek. We lost our money, on account of water difficulties in the shaft, and took a contract on the railway line then being constructed to Beechworth from Melbourne. There were eight in the party, and we purchased horses and carts, but experienced another financial wreck, because of the unexpected hardness of the blasting operations, and were unable to complete the contract. Fortunately, I bad enough money saved to take me home. Mr. Tickle and my brother (Mr. Martin McLeish), who is now living at Unley, tramped back down the River Murray route to Adelaide, a distance of 800 miles. —Success at Mintaro.-- "On my return to Mintaro I started contracting with the Lower Midland and North Midland Roads Boards, sitting at Riverton and Clare respectively, and made a number of roads, bridges, embankments, and culverts for those bodies at the rate of about £11 a chain. Fortune smiled on me, and eventually I retired from business for a few years. I was one of the promoters of the Mintaro Slate Company, and remained a director until the death of my wife in 1900, then sold out the Mintaro interests, and went to live at North Adelaide.

Married William MAHOOD 16 October 1861 at Residence of the Bride's Father, Saddleworth, SA Died 02 February 1905 at Cue, WA
On Thursday last there passed away at Cue, at the residence of her married daughter, Mrs. J. Linham, a very old and respected resident in the person of Mrs. Jane Mahood. The deceased was born at sea in 1840, when voyaging to Australia in the immigrant ship Dauntless, and was, therefore, 65 years at he time of her demise. The late Mrs. Mahood. with her husband and family, were colonists of South Australia, and immigrated to Cue about eight years ago, but for some time the former, after the death of her husband, resided with her son, Mr. Sam Mahood, at Lennonville. Latterly, however, she had lived with Mrs. John Linham at Cue. Her death was very sudden and unexpected, as, save for a burst of a varicose vein, which occured some ten days ago, she was in her usual jovial state of health. At 11 am on the date mentioned, however,—so soon to be her last,—the deceased lady had partaken of her morning luncheon in company with her two daughters, Mrs. J. Linham aud Mrs. George and Mrs, W. Mahood jr., but at 1.30 p.m. after having remarked that she was going to wash up the tea things, fell back and expired.. Drs. Taylor and Blanchard were sent for, but tho only assistance they could render was to give a certificate to the effect that death resulted from cerebral apoplexy. The deceased loaves three sons and four daughters to mourn their sad loss. The funeral took place on Friday, and was attended by a number of relatives and friends, her remains being fittingly laid to rest in the Cue Cemetery beside those of her husband, who died at Cue four years ago. The Rev. A. Sussex conducted the burial.
