  • Notes 
    • From Violet Turner 1967. Page 15
      Herbert James started work as a fireman and later a clerk in the railways at Petersburg. His chief interest was in his church, and under Rev. Pred Roone,. he studied for the local preacher's exam. Having become accredited as a local preacher, he took services in churches in outlying districts. In 1914 he was transferred to the Islington S.A.R. workshops and his mother and two sisters went with him, to begin a new life in Prospect. It was the last they knew of Petersburg where they had lived for 12 Years. The name was changed to Peterborough during World War I.

      Herbert had been associated with work among boys at Petersburg, and now he was offered the position of secretary of Our Boys' Institute, Broken Hill.
      Page 16

      Because of success at the Hill he was further offered  the secretaryship of Y.M.C.A. in Sydney. When he went to New South Wales, he took with him his bride. May Eliza Bowey, born 5th November 1895 whose father had been a farmer of Maitland. Herbert and May were married in the Prospect North Methodist Church in 1923. They spent some years in New South Wales and later returned to Prospect with one child. Herb then became a land and estate agent, first in Prospect where other children were born, and later at Henley Beach, until ill-health in both himself and his wife, necessitated retirement. and a move to a smaller home in Sefton Park. Herb died of pneumonia on 20th November 196 and was buried at Dudley Park. His name, Herbert James, had been given him in memory of a cousin of that name who had died just before Herb was born.

      Herb's widow still lives in the home they established at Sefton Park.
