Story: Charles Adler (1852 - 1905)

From "The Uebergang Families in Australia, 1848 - 1985", added to this site 20 Dec 2000

Charles' early life was spent on his parent's farms near Warrnambool. He was 20 when the Adler family moved permanently to Murtoa in the Wimmera. Charles and his father and brother Ned selected neighbouring blocks at Ashens, south of Lake Marma.

It is possible that Charles lived with the rest of the family, firstly on his brother Fred's block north of the lake, later on Ned's block, and then on their father's selection. It is also probable that the blocks were farmed collectively.

As with his older brothers, Charles' father provided him with financial assistance to become established.

In 1893 he sold the farm and selected a Mallee alotment in the Lalbert district near Swan Hill. Here they were plunged into even more rigorous circumstances. Adversity of seasons, a scarcity of water and their remoteness from a market town all contributed to their hardships and disappointments.

After Charles' wife Mary died (see her story), he re-married in 1904. His second wife, Mary Ann Williams, was born in Cornwall, England, c1866.

Shortly after their marriage, Charles' health began to fail and medical treatment in Geelong revealed that he had inoperable stomach cancer. He died in Geelong hospital 14 months after re-marrying. After his death the family lost all contact with his second wife Mary.

Story: Mary Millar (1862 - 1897)

From "The Uebergang Families in Australia, 1848 - 1985", added to this site 20 Dec 2000

Mary came from a Scottish Presbyterian background. Her father was a tin-smith, and was among the pioneer business people of Murtoa. Mary grew up in the town and was said to be a school teacher before her marriage.

All the trials of pioneering life were experienced on her husband's selection at Murtoa (see his story). In 1893 he sold the farm and selected a Mallee alotment in the Lalbert district near Swan Hill. Here they were plunged into even more rigorous circumstances. Adversity of seasons, a scarcity of water and their remoteness from a market town all contributed to their hardships and disappointments. On one occasion Mary got lost in the bush searching for quondongs.

In 1897 towards the end of her last pregnancy, Mary returned to Murtoa to be cared for. Although there were no apparent complications, and the twin children were born, Mary later became ill. When her condition became serious, a telegram was sent to her husband Charles, but, because of his distance from a telegraph office, he received the notification too late and did not arrive before his wife died. Mary was only 35 when she died.

Because of their young age, the infant twins were fostered. Later in the year Hilda became ill and died in Geelong.
