Story: Edward Adler (1855 - 1941)

From "The Uebergang Families in Australia, 1848 - 1985", added to this site 7 Feb 2003

No record of Ned's baptism survives, but he would have been confirmed by the pioneer Luther pastor, C.W. Schürmann. His early life was spent on his parents' farm at Winslow, near Warrnambool, where he probably worked after leaving school.

It was said that Ned was the first member of the Adler family to consider moving north when the Wimmera plains were opened for selection. After his brothers Fred and John selected at Marma Gully (Murtoa) in 1871, Ned and his father may have assisted them build a house, fences and horse-yard on Fred's block in 1872. It is possible that he also assisted to plant and harvest the first wheat crop that year.

Ned was 18 when the Adler family moved permanently to Marma Gully in 1873. That year, if not earlier, Ned and his father and his brother Charles selected neighbouring blocks of approximately 320 acres each at Ashens, south of Lake Marma. In the early years it is possible that Fred lived with the rest of his family on Fred's selection, north of the lake. After 1875 they moved to Ned's own block at Ashens, later moving to his father's selection next door when Ned married. It is probably that all the Ashens blocks were farmed collectively at first; and as with his older brothers, Ned's father assisted him to become established.

Ned and Louise were married by a Presbyterian minister, the Rev. G. Graham, at Cope Cope near St Arnaud. The Herings had settled there after originally living near Germantown (Grovedale), Geelong. Louise was a school teacher before her marriage.

All the trials of early pioneering life were experienced on Ned's original selection, 'Union Farm'. An enterprising and intelligent person, he was able to develop it into a successful farming and grazing property.

Ned's interest also spread wider. He was the first person in the Murtoa area to purchase a McCormack Reaper and Twine Binder. In 1883 he was appointed an agent for the company and became an expert at starting the machines. Ned conducted one of the first local trials of this machine on his brother Fred's property, in December 1883. It is believed Ned also held other agencies, and in a very real sense, he played a significant part in the mechanization of farming in the Wimmera.

In the early 1880's Ned established several threshing plants and began travelling throughout the Murtoa, Horsham and Warracknabeal districts. By 1889 (then in partnership with D.Beaton) he had purchased a traction engine - and the well-known threshing plant was rumbling its way into Wimmera history!

The contract team travelled from farm to farm after the crops had been harvested. They were usually a day or less at any one property, separating and bagging the wheat, and stacking the straw. As many as 20 men worked on the team; a number of relatives were employed on occasions, and it is known that Tommy Farrell drove the traction engine for some time.

Early in his life Ned obtained a certificate to operate steam engines. On one occasion, during a railway strike, he found himself (and some valuable cattle) stranded on a train with no driver prepared to work. Not to be outdone, Ned entered the cab - and despite soap which the drivers had thrown in the boiler, and with the use of another engine - he managed to get both passengers and goods from Murtoa to Stawell!

In 1892 Ned leased and later purchased a farm at Kellalac near Warracknabeal, owned by Andrew Scott of the Warracknabeal and Buninyong (Ballarat) squatting family. He sold 'Union Farm' to his brother August, and contiued to operate his thresher from Kellalac, until the advent of privately owned strippers began to make it less profitable. His years at Kellalac also coincided with a run of dry seasons, culminating in a full-scale drought in 1901-1902. Ned had trouble meeting his payments, and in 1902 was forced to temporarily abandon his farm and take what was left of his stock to Buninyong.

Probably because of the drought Ned left Kellalac in 1903, and purchased a dairy farm on the Queenscliffe Road, Moolap (Geelong). There he had a milk-run, and with a waggon and horses he also carted chaf around the city and to the Geelong wharves. His son Ted and brother-in-law Gottfried Schache were employed in this carrying business.

Ned was to move once more. Possibly encouraged by his son-in-law Reinhold Hausler, he decided to go north for cheaper land. Through his cousin Ned Fritsch at Temora, he purchased a property at neighbouring Gidginbung. They moved to the Riverina in 1912, farming and grazing successfully until 1920. That year Ned and Louise retired to Church Street, West Wyalong.

The Adlers joined the Presbyterian Church during their years in the Riverina. Ned and Louise donated a christening font to the West Wyalong Presbyterian Church, while their family donated a communion table and chairs. Louise was a member of the church guild; while Ned also took a keen interest in the Farmers and Settlers Association, and other farmers organizations.

Louise died of heart failure in West Wyalong a few weeks before their Golden Wedding anniversary. A kindly woman, she was 77 years old, and was buried by the Rev. M. McAlpine of the West Wyalong Presbyterian Church.

Three years later Ned moved to Melbourne and married again. His second wife was Louise's sister-in-law, a widow who also shared her name! Louisa (Louie) was previously married to Adolph Hering, who died on August 5, 1923. They had farmed at Drysdale and reared several foster children before retiring to Carnegie.

Ned and Louie were married by the Rev. S. Churchward of the Methodist Church, and they continued to live at Carnegie after their marriage. Ned was 85 when he died suddenly, six years later, and his remains were taken back to West Wyalong, by train, for burial. Rev. H. Cunningham of the West Wyalong Presbyterian Church conducted his service.

Ned was the last of the Adler brothers to die, and was only survived by his youngest sister Tilly Renzow. Apart from his first wife, Ned was also predeceased by his eldest son, Ted, who died in a car accident in 1936.

Louie continued to live at Carnegie until she died, aged 77 years. She was buried with her first husband.

Bertie Adler married Ron Hausler. After farming at Ailsa near Warracknabeal, they moved to Gidginbung, near Temora, New South Wales in 1909. In 1937 they sold at Temora and bought another farm near West Wyalong, retiring into town in 1950. Their West Wyalong property, 'Dumbarton', is still farmed by their elder son, Eric.

Ted married Ellen White. Ted worked for his father at Moolap and Gidginbung before share-farming at Reefton (1914-1917). Later he rented his father's farm at Gidginbung (1917-1923). In 1923 he bought his own farm, 'Cypress Park' at Yiddah, south of West Wyalong. Ted was returning from a holiday with his relatives in Queensland when he was killed - the same day as his uncle Fred Adler died in Victoria. 'Cypress Park' has since been farmed by Ted's son and grandson.

Olga married Allan Scott who worked at the Chatham Salt Works, Moolap, when they were first married. From 1917 he share-farmed a property at Blow Clear, near West Wyalong, with his brother-in-law Paul Adler. About 1924 they returned to a dairy farm at Moolap.

Val married Alf Ruschen. Their early married life was spent in the Wagga Wagga district. Later they farmed at Temora before purchasing 'Aldersyde', a property at Girral, in 1926. They also later purchased land which had previously been owned by Val's second cousins, Oscar and Harold Uebergang. The Ruschens retired to West Wyalong. Val died at Wagga.

Paul married Elsie Koop. Paul worked for his father at Gidginbung before share-farming with this brother-in-law Allan Scott at Blow Clear (from 1917). In 1921 he bought a farm at Buddigower which he farmed successfully. They also retired to West Wyalong and their son Roy still farms the Buddigower property.
