April A-Z Challenge – E is for Echuca
Two branches of my family are from Echuca. The WATERS family and the MORRISON family.
My Great Grandfather JOHN MORRISON had a carting business. He carted grain by horse and cart, from the farms to the silos in Echuca.
The WATERS family are my maternal grandmother’s family. They were involved in the Salvation Army for many years. Many were band members. I was told that the Echuca Salvation Army Band was known as “The Band of Many Waters”.
My Great Great Grandfather EARNEST WELFARE WATERS, at differing times, was a self employed carpenter and butcher.
