Albert Harold Holder (Dick) was born on the 23rd of April 1894. Dick built a
small home on his block at Morven, it was close to the front fence near the
lane that ran up to the Hodges. He worked for many years at ‘Mahonga’
station, near Rand. Dick was born with a cleft palate and a speech
impediment, because of this he didn’t have a lot to say preferring to live a
quiet life, he never married. In his own way he was a bit of a character,
and had a good sense of humour, the following stories have gone into our
families history as worth preserving. Dick was heading home one day taking
a short cut through a paddock he bent down to throw a small branch out of
his way when he was bitten on the arm just above his wrist by a brown snake,
feeling quite put out that this had happened he ran the snake down and
killed it, then taking out his pocket knife he made a cut across the bite
before sucking out the poison. He then walked home, his horrified brother
saddled his horse and tore into Culcairn to fetch the doctor. Dick spent a
few sick days in bed, but he lived to joke about it. In his later years he
built himself a small hut on the block of land that once belonged to Morell
and Louisa Brown, this land backed onto our property (Ron and Judy Brown).
Dick did not attend church but without fail he turned on his wireless and
listened to the church service on a Sunday evening. On the odd occasion he
would wander over to the Morven Pub to enjoy a couple of beers. It was on
one of those days that my brother Alister Brown needed a piece of string to
finish a project that he was working on. He went across to his uncle’s
place, Dick had just arrived home from the pub, and as Alister recalled
later, I think he was a little merry, I said to him, ‘have you got any
string on ya Dick’, the reply was immediate, ‘what do you think it is, a
bloody yo-yo. Dick died in the Culcairn hospital in 1974, he was 80 years
old he is buried in the Culcairn cemetery.

Note

Mary Babington was well known for her excellent cooking, her sponge cakes cooked in the camp oven could match any modern stove today. I remember when I was a child lining up for a slice of her home made Christmas pudding. When she was asked for the recipe her reply was, ‘Oh, a hand full of this and that, a pinch of this’ etc., As Mary had large hands we could never get it right. Mary was a strong and independent lady.

Note

Mary and Ted Bradshaw were married at Holbrook in 1941. Mary was almost 52 years old. Mary met Ted Bradshaw while working as the cook for the main homestead at ‘Coppabella Station’ near Jinjellic. Ted worked there as a station hand. Ted Bradshaw was born in England. Both of Mary’s sons, Bill and Dan were serving in the army at the time of their mothers second marriage, Bill the eldest son said his mother wrote to him to ask for his permission to remarry.
Mary and Ted moved back to Morven where Mary had taken up the position as the cook, and Ted as a station hand at ‘Carabobala Station’. This lovely old station is about four miles out of Morven. While working there they lived in a small cottage on the property, which was situated on the bank of the Billabong creek. A few years on and Mary and Ted have moved back into Mary’s home at Morven. It was while they were living there that tragically, Ted Bradshaw died on the family property about 1958. Ted is buried in the Culcairn cemetery. Mary remained living in her home at Morven until in her later years when she moved into her son and daughter in law's (Bill and Val Babington) home in Henty Street, Culcairn. Mary died in the Culcairn Hospital aged 87 years on 28th June 1977. She is buried in the Culcairn cemetery. Source: Patricia Payne
