BLENHEIM'S FIRST GOLDEN WEDDING.
FAMILY AND RESIDENTS HONOUR MR. AND MRS. JACKWITZ.

LAIDLEY, August 23. A pleasant function took place at the residence of Mr. F. Kowaltzke, Blenheim, on Saturday, August 4. The event was the celebration of the golden wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Jackwitz.

The function was organised as a surprise by their son and daughters, Mr. F. Jackwitz, Mrs. H. Hauschildt, Mrs. H. Wegner, and Mrs. F. Kowaltzke. The bridal party were met by members of the Lilydale Band, about half a mile from the residence. The band escorted the happy couple to the accompaniment of appropriate music. On arrival they were met by their children and grandchildren, and friends, and cameras were used. On arrival each guest was presented with a blue and gold rosette, as a memento of the occasion. It was the first golden wedding celebrated at Blenheim.

At noon the bridal couple and guests adjourned to the verandah, where the tables were laid. They were beautifully decorated with golden-coloured flowers and streamers, the work of the old couple's grandchildren. In front of the "bride and bridegroom" was a very handsome two-tier wedding cake, which was made by their daughter, Mrs. Hauschildt, and iced and decorated in white and gold by their grandchild, Miss Hilda Hauschildt.

Rev. W. K. Holmans presided. He expressed his pleasure at being present on such a happy occasion, congratulating the bride and bridegroom on having attained the 50th anniversary of their wedding day. The toast, "The Bride and Bridegroom," was proposed by Mr. F. Blake, and supported by Cr. T. L. Moon. Mrs. Heinrich, of Kalbar, was asked to make a presentation to the happy couple from their children. She congratulated the happy couple, and feelingly referred to Mrs. Jackwitz's kindness to her in the early years of her work at Blenheim. She also apologised for the absence of Rev. J. Heinrich. Mr. F. Topp, on behalf of himself and other members of the band, thanked the promoters for their kind invitation. In the course of the afternoon the band played selections, which were appreciated by the company. The evening was spent in games and community singing, and at the end all sang "For They Are Jolly Good Fellows."

EARLY DAYS. Mr. Carl Friedrich Wilhelm Jackwitz was born at Breslau (Germany) on August 15, 1860. At the age of 18 years, he set sail from Hamburg with his parents in the German sailing ship, "Herschel," and after 16½ weeks' sailing the first land he saw was Maryborough, Queensland. After staying at Maryborough for a short time the family went to Brisbane, and from there to Tarampa. After living there for three years, they removed to Blenheim, known at that time as Sandy Creek. They were amongst the first pioneers.

In 1888 Mr. Jackwitz took up a selection of 76 acres on the western side of Sandy Creek. In 1884 be married Miss Bertha Schroder, of Tarampa, the ceremony being performed by Rev. Thos. Nock, Methodist Minister.

Mrs. Jackwitz and her parents arrived in Brisbane from Germany 69 years ago. After living at Oxley Creek, Brisbane River, for a short period, they took up a selection at Tarampa.

When Mr. Jackwitz first came to Laidley there was only one hotel (Chambers's), one store (Glesman's), Mr. H. Head's blacksmith shop, and Mr. P. Nielsen, saddler.

Mr. Jackwitz was a bootmaker by trade, but he took on farming, and with his wife had to fell the scrub, plant their crops with a hoe, make their own road to their property, and cart their produce to market, three bags at a time, in a wooden trolley made by himself. The lowest price he received for maize was 9d. a bushel. They had also to carry their water in buckets for three miles.

He was a great lover of band music, and was a foundation member of the first and only brass band formed at Blenheim-by Mr. C. Cross. He was also band conductor for a period, and the band played for Church functions, the show, and sports.

He was a foundation member of the first Baptist Church, which was built on his father's property, and in conjunction with Mr. C. Mutzleberg, opened the first Baptist Sunday School, being Superintendent of the school, and choir conductor for several years. He still takes a keen interest in the work of his Church.

The children living are one son and three daughters, 21 grandchildren, one great grandchild. One son died 18 years ago. Mr. Jackwitz has five brothers--Messrs. Herman (Tarampa), Wilhelm (Coominya), Albert (Forest Hill), Otto and Paul (Blenheim).

Brisbane Courier, Friday 28 April 1905, page 4

DEATH OF AN OLD COLONIST.

After forty years of hard toil in Brisbane Peter Von Dohren passed to his rest on Wednesday morning at the age of 60 years, after a short illness. An old and respected colonist, Mr. Von Dohren had earned the admiration and respect not only of his own German friends but of all with whom he had been associated. The story of his life is bound up in the early history of the State. He was born in Worden, in Germany and at the age of 19 emigrated to Queensland with his father Peter Von Dohren sen., his mother Annie Von Dohren, his brother John, his sisters and an old school mate, W. Von Senden. On arrival in Brisbane the colonists settled at Logan-road. Peter and his brother drove the first coaches to Beenleigh over the rough country. On more than one occasion the youthful coach driver was "stuck up" by desperadoes who thought he had gold on board. After his coach experience he became a cab driver and possessed the first hansom cab in Brisbane known as "Von Dohren's cab". Great was the competition for this vehicle and among those who at one time or another rode in it was the late Sir Charles Lilley. Mr. Von Dohren was one of the founders of the Stonehenge Druids' Lodge in Brisbane. He found his chief delight in his home and amidst his friends. He married Miss Minnie Kruse of Ipswich and at his death left a grown up family of four sons and three daughters. One of his sisters married Mr. H. Lose, another Mr. Jansen ("Narellan," North Quay), and a third Mr. P. Pute (Croydon). Many beautiful wreaths, including a magnificent one from his old friends on the Gresham cab rank were sent for the funeral which took place at 4 p.m. yesterday.

In February 1907, Theodor was promoted from III3 to III2.
In April 1907 he was transferred from Maida Hill State School to Purga Creek State School. His standing was HT III2.
In January 1909 he was promoted from III2 to III1.
In April 1909 he was transferred form Purga  Creek State School to Nebo State School. His standing was HT III1.
In August 1909 he was transferred from Nebo State School to Finch Hatton State School. His standing was HT III1.
[Transferred to Murrarie State School after 19½ years at Finch Hatton]
In January 1911 he was promoted from III1 to II3.

The following is from "The Fassifern Story" by C K Pfeffer pages 254 and 257.

Many of the teachers allotted to provisional schools, though conscientious, were untrained. The appointment of TBJ Wenck as Charlwood's first school teacher in 1896 typifies the manner in which additional teachers were engaged. Following approval by the local school committee, the young Mr Wenck was instructed to journey to Brisbane for an interview and examination. This occurred on the 8th May 1895. Extracts from the Department of Public Instruction's report follow:

"The examinee is 21 years of age. He left Minden School at the age of 14, being then a 4th class pupil. He has been employed in station work since then, mostly riding after cattle; and he has tried to study to keep up his schooling at night school, as best he could…He has nearly lost the sight of his right eye, but he does not feel at much loss in his vision he says…He is quiet in manner, well grown, and of commonplace appearance."

Mr Wenck was examined in reading, spelling, meanings, geography, grammar, writing and arithmetic. Some of the comments were:

"Spelling - words of moderate difficulty were misspelt…Meanings - his mind works slowly, but he has sensible ideas…Geography - he has a fair knowledge of this subject, considering his schooling, and he has not forgotten what he learned."

The examiner's remarks were:
"I think his attainments are sufficient for the position of teacher at the proposed Provisional School at Charlwood. To wit, the Minister has approved of his appointment if he is found to be fit."

Three years later, in 1899, TBJ Wenck was moved to the new school at Obum Obum where he was again the first school teacher.

The following is from the Townsville Bulletin, 21 Jan 1929:
On 28th. December [1928] Mr. T. B. J. Wenck, who has been head teacher of the Hatton State School for the past 19½ years and who has been transferred to Murrarie, was entertained at a farewell social in the Cedar Hall, Finch Hatton, there was a great number present. Mr. J. O'Toole presided and on behalf of the residents presented Mr. Wenck with a wallet of notes. Mr. J. Cavanagh supported Mr. O'Toole in the remarks made by him of the many admirable characteristics of the guest. Mr. Wenck in recognising the gift voiced his pleasure and surprise and sincerely thanked them all for their kind action Mr. Wenck accompanied by Mrs. Wenck and family left for Murrarie on New Years morning. Mr. Ham succeeds Mr. Wenck.

CHURCH TRIUMPHANT.

Mr. James Brown.

Our Franklyn Church, in the Terowie Circuit, was bereft of one of its oldest and best-loved members on February 2. Mr. James Brown, who was the father of Mrs. A. Harding, had passed his ninety-third birthday, and for sixty-six years he had been a member of the Methodist Church. He was converted at the age of twenty-seven, in a Primitive Methodist Church in Driffield, Yorkshire. Yorkshire was both his natal and spiritual birthplace.

Immediately after his conversion he became interested in the affairs of Christ's kingdom, and up to within a few years of his death he was an active Church worker. He came to South Australia in the year 1852, in the ship "Shackamaxan." His wife died on board just before the vessel reached our coast, and she was buried on the beach by his own hands. His early life in this State was one of struggle and toil, but he was blessed with a sound constitution, a strong will, and a plentiful supply of energy, and these stood him in good stead. His first settled abode in this land was Waterloo, where he took up land and began farming. He at once identified himself with the Primitive Methodist Church in that locality, and held every office in the Church, including that of preacher. From Waterloo he removed to Iron Mine, and thence to Terowie. For the last twenty years he lived at Franklyn with his daughter, Mrs. Harding.

Until within a few weeks of his death he was a regular attendant at God's house. He was, without exception, the best listener in the congregation; highly respected by all, and dearly loved by all who knew him best. His end was one of profound faith and peace. Resting with full confidence in his Saviour, and with bright and hopeful anticipation, he passed away to the Church Triumphant. He left four daughters, thirty-six grandchildren, and ninety-nine great-grandchildren.

COLAC POLICE COURT.
FRIDAY, 31st JULY.
(Before Messrs Fulton and Parkinson, J's.P.)
A FAMILY SQUABBLE.
Five cases of assault and damage to property were heard, all of which arose out of a trouble in the Powell family. Charles Powell sued his wife and daughter for assault, and the wife summoned the husband and sons for assault.

Mr T. W. Hancock appeared for the father and sons, and Mr Sewell (of Messrs Harwood and Pincotti for the mother and daughter.

Charles Powell, laborer, said Margaret Powell was his wife and Lily Powell his daughter. Last Sunday his wife was at Mrs Bell's. He had many reasons to complain against them. It was 25 minutes past 1 when they came home that night. His three sons and John Monkevitch were home with him. His wife was the worse of liquor, and his daughter looked as though she had been drinking. He had instructed his sons to put the girl outside if she was quarrelsome. She used some bad language, and Thomas Powell said, "You sit down, or I will throw you out." The girl was thrown out, and she said she would "do" for Thomas Powell. The mother and daughter then smashed the windows, and Margaret Powell hit him on the eye with, a spade, and said, "That got one home on you." About five minutes afterwards the two women went away, and subsequently came back, and commenced throwing at the house. It was 20 minutes to 4 before the trouble settled down. Margaret Powell said she would hang for him.

To Mr Sewell - About two years ago he was fined for assaulting his wife. He had ten children, and made his living by carting wood. His wife did not keep the house. She went out to do washing. His daughter had not earned 3s for herself during the last seven months. He did not strike his wife with a paling, and could not account for the marks on her arm. He did not strike the daughter whilst his sons held her.

To Mr Hancock - The damage to the window sashes was about £1. For a month he had to look after the children, as Margaret Powell had not done any housework.

Thomas Powell, laborer, said that he went to his father's house last Sunday. His mother and sister came home about half-past 1 in the morning. His mother was drunk, and his sister had been drinking. He was acting under his father's instructions in putting his sister outside the door. He ran away, and entered the house at the back. The woman and girl, with a spade and shovel, started to smash up windows. He never interfered with them. The mark on his father's eye was caused by his mother. His father never assaulted the women.

To Mr Sewell -- He did not strike his sister or his mother.

Attewell Walter Powell corroborated the evidence of the previous witness. His mother was the worse of liquor.

Charles Powell said his father had to stay at home and mind the children. His mother was drunk, and he could see that the girl had had some drink.

John Monkevitch stated that when Margaret Powell and her daughter came home they started to smash up things.

This closed the case for the complainant.

Margaret Powell, defendant, said she was not in the habit of drinking. She never had any drink at Mrs Bell's. She went out washing and doing other work. It was about five or six weeks ago since her husband worked. They went home early in the evening, before 10 o'clock. The place was locked. She put her hand in the window, and her husband struck her on the arm. The boys were all armed with sticks. On the Monday they went back to the house, and two of the boys punched Lily Powell. She did not smash the windows.

Lily Powell said that her father had given her a drink in the house, but she never had any outside. Her mother put her arms in the window, and her father and one of the brothers hit her mother with palings. The men had a crosscut saw inside the house.

To Mr Hancock - They were not on the premises at 1 o'clock in the morning. Her father had never objected to the time she came home.

Ellen M. Bell said she knew Mrs Powell and her daughter. There was no drink in the house on the Sunday in question.

Robert Gaul, of Elliminyt, said there was no drink at Mrs Bell's place. It was about 10 o'clock when the Powell's went home.

The Bench intimated that the whole of the cases would be dismissed, and advised the family to try and live in harmony with one another, other wise one party or the other would find that something serious would happen.

COLAC SHIRE COUNCIL.
WEDNESDAY, 21ST NOVEMBER [1900].

CORRESPONDENCE.
From C. H. Johnstone, secretary of the Colac Ladies' Benevolent Society, with reference to a letter re Patrick Lennon, stating that an offer had been made to his son, who was an invalid, the right to use one of the society's beds in the Colac Hospital, which would have relieved the old couple of his care. He regretted to say that the offer was declined, and the committee were unable to do anything further, other than to continue the weekly payment of five shillings per week, which they had been in receipt of for years from the society.-Received.
