    In the year 1885 the couple and their family migrated to Australia and first lived at Highfields for about fifteen months. They then selected 160 acres of land at Djuan where they lived for the rest of their lives. The four children of the family were all born in Germany - Wilhelm, Gottfried, Heinrich and Earnestina.

    Wilhelm, who married Caralone Morgenstern before coming to this country selected land at Upper Djuan and engaged in farming including dairying, pig raising, maize, wheat and potato growing. They reared a family of five boys and five girls.

    Gottfried Wolski who was married at Douglas to Elsie Morgenstern carried on the property previously selected by his father and engaged in the same type of farming as his elder brother, this being the main industries in those days. They raised a family of five boys and three girls.
