By the age of thirty, Beenie hadn't married and was working as a hosiery machinist. The year was 1927 and she was about to make a decision that would change the rest of her life. On 17th September of that year, Beenie travelled to Liverpool to board the Aberdeen Line ship the Euripedes, later named Akaroa, and sail to Australia.
During the First World War she carried more than 38,000 troops, and in 1919 she returned to the London-Australia run via the Cape of Good Hope.
Her brother, Pete,r died in Queensland, age 44, in 1959. His records show that his mother was Emily Williams.
Emily Samson married Mervyn Johnson on 3 July, 1939 in Roma, Queensland at the age of 22. She died in 1996 at the age of 79 in Charleville, Queensland.
James married Noelene Ruhle on 27 July, 1946 and died in 1993 in Toowoomba, Queansland, aged 74. By sheer luck, I've got a photo of their wedding. Wonderful!
