After Samuel died Mary married John Quantrill on the 15 October 1844 at St.Andrews Church, Cockfighters Creek, New South Wales. Mary and John QUANTRILL had a son John QUANTRILL 1847-1874.

Mary left John at the end of 1857 and on 7 January 1858, John QUANTRILL placed this notice in the Maitland Mercury
WHEREAS my WIFE, MARY QUANTRILL, formerly MARY EATHER, has left her home without any cause or provocation: This is to caution the public not to give her any CREDIT, as I will not be responsible for any DEBTS she may contract after this; and 1 further give notice that any parties found driving cattle from the undermentioned estate will be prosecuted according to law.
De Quiros Villa,
Cockfighter's Creek,

Note*: Some branches of Quantrill family have a history of what was then called hereditary chemodectoma or known these days as Paraganglioma
Thomas was the illegitimate son of Mary born after Samuel died Registered as Thomas Heather mother Mary. There was much speculation as to who his father was as there are no records of Quantrill acknowledging him as his son. HOWEVER: I have been told by members of the Thomas Eather/ Jane Barnett family, Chemodectoma is present in some of their decendants.

Mary died on the 13 November 1880 at Goorangoola, New South Wales.

Walter was born in Kensington, Adelaide and prior to his working in Western Australia he worked on the West Coast of South Australia with his two brothers (also Blacksmith's). He returned to South Australia to live with one of his sister's and her family. I have photos of him with that sister and his brother (my g grandfather). My grandfather loved his Uncle Walter and looked forward to his visits but he always thought that Walter was a Bachelor.
