  • Notes 
    • From Violet Turner 1967. Page 24.
      Frank Colin was born at Jamestown on 21st October 1913, and came with the rest of the family to Heathpool. He had a postion with Woodroofe's firm and maried Edna May Woodroofe, the proprieter's daughter who also helpred her father in the cool drink business. When the Second World 'flar came., Col-in enlisted and served in New Guinea for the duration.

      Returning to Adelaide, he opened a shop in Payneham, But, like the three sons of his great-grandmother, Nancy Turner, he gave up business to become an orchardist. He bought a block at Swan Reach, on the Murray, and is planting it with vines and fruit trees. In the meanwhile, Edna, who has given considerable help with the planting, is keeping the home open in Portrush Road, Deaulah Park, until the orchard is ready for occupancy.
