The minute book of the time showed that Egbert Maddern had donated two loads of logs towards the materials for the construction as did many other locals. It can be assumed that the loads referred to were bullock wagon loads of approxminately 3500 to 4000 super feet. Blocks were donated by W. Gillies. Likewise much of the labour was on a voluntary basis with E Maddern donating 6 days, L Bidgood 2 days, W Maddern 2 days, and J Kelly 2. Others of the community also donated their time.4

  • At the age of 29 years, 3 months and 2 days, John William (Willie or Bill) Maddern married Eva Alison Knight, daughter of William Edward Knight and Daisy Lewington, on 9 October 1940 in Emu Creek Methodist Church, Queensland. Details of the wedding appeared in the local Toowoomba paper -
    WEDDING MADDERN-KNIGHT
    The Emu Creek Methodist Church which had been decorated, was the scene of a pretty wedding on Wednesday October 9, when Miss Eva Alison Knight, the youngest daughter of Mr and Mrs W E Knight of Toowoomba, was united in the bonds of holy matrimony to Mr John William Maddern, eldest son of Mr and Mrs E Maddern, "Glenmore", Emu Creek.
    The bride looked charming in a gown of off-white satin. The tight fitting bodice featured a pointed waistline and cowl front, and was finished with self-coloured buttons and loops. the full circular skirt falling in a long graceful train. She wore a pretty lace veil kindly lent by Mrs E Hillenberg of Crows Nest, a friend of the bride, and carried a trailing bouquet of arum lilies.
    Miss Evelyn Maddern, sister of the bridegroom, who acted as bridesmaid, wore a dainty frock of powder blue georgette. She carried a bouquet of Rev F Page Roberts roses and daisies.

    roses.12,13
  • Willie and Eva moved to "Claredale" after their marriage. Egbert Maddern gave Willie his backing to for a bank loan to buy the property. The children were driven to Brookstead State School in the morning and when they were old enough usually walked home about six miles through neighbours paddocks, a walk that usually took a couple of hours. When it looked likely to storm Eva would collect them early from school so they were not caught by the impassable black soil that soon became too boggy to drive on.
    Willie was blinded in one eye while sewing up bags of linseed, with Keith Vaschina who was helping him on a very windy day. Because the linseed was slippery the bags tended to fall over, not like bags of wheat and Willie reached out with one arm to try to stop the bag he was sewing up from falling over and the needle he was holding dug in his eye. The eye became infected and he had to go to hospital. He came home and tried to get his harvesting done with the help of neighbours, but his eye was so bad he had to go back to hospital and have it removed and a glass eye put in its place. Willie and Eva remained on the Yarrenlea farm until they retired to Pittsworth. Lawrence continued on the farm.6
