10969 Oman Geddes; Birth Year: abt 1881,Age: 3, Death Date: 02 Aug 1884, Death Place: Port Pirie, Residence Place: Port Pirie
Father's name: Charles Geddes, Registration Place: Clare, South Australia, Page Number: 489, Volume Number: 139.
Please find below are some reminiscences written ( by someone ) at the time of James Sim Geddes death in 1931.
They may not be totally true, but interestingly name an unidentified James Cursitor from Orkney as being a local Port Pirie settler, and friend of the original settler, Charles Geddes. Here is James Cursitor's death record :
James Cursetor, Birth Year: abt 1830, Age: 50, Death Date: 30 Jul 1880, Death Place: Port Pirie, Residence Place: Port Pirie
Registration Place: Clare, South Australia Page Number: 393 Volume Number: 104
Here are the reminiscences; "The family tombstone bears two inscriptions which are somewhat unique.
One records the death of Charles Oman Geddes, who died on August 2, 1884, aged 3 years and 6 months, and another that of Charles Oman Geddes, who died on January 19, 1908, in his 20th year. It was a case of one child being given the name of a brother who had passed away. The other inscription registers the death of James Cursitor, a native of Orkney, who died here on July 30,1880, aged 50 years. This was a friend and fellow countryman of Mr C. Geddes' youthful days. Mr. J. S. Geddes' younger brother. Charlie, died during a spell of the hottest weather experienced here during the last 30 years, and the oldest residents surely cannot remember any more torrid time. For well over a week the shade temperature registered from 110 and 112 up to nearly 118 degrees! There were many deaths here during that heat wave."
Maybe the tombstone,still visible in 1931 at Port Pirie, South Australia, was for the missing James Cursiter below :
The Argus Melbourne Wed.6th January 1909; INFORMATION WANTED regarding JAMES HOURIE and WILLIAM HOURIE, sons of James Hourie and Margaret Cursiter or Hourie, and also regarding JAMES CURSITER and JOHN CURSITER, sons of William Cursiter and Catherine Currsiter, all seamen, and natives of the country of Orkney, and last heard of between 1850 and 1860 Macrae and Robertson, solicitors. Kirkwall, Orknev, Scotland.
The information below is COPIED from a random website :James Cursiter, born 1830; James Cursiter was born on month day 1830, to William Cursiter and Catharine Cursiter. James was baptized in month 1830, at baptism place.

10989 One of John's Australian Sons; Observer Adelaide, SA Saturday 31st Oct 1925; LATE MR. PETER ALLEN, MP.
Tragic End to a Useful Life.
Mr. Peter Allen, M.P., the Liberal Party Whip in the House of Assembly,and one of the most widely known and highly respected legislators in the State, collapsed when descending the main entrance steps at Parliament House after the adjournment of the sitting on Thursday afternoon, October 22, and expired when being conveyed to the Adelaide Hospital. The tragic end to a life many years of which had beeh spent in faithful and valuable service to the country cast a gloom over political circles, and particularly upon fellow members who were within the precincts of the House when it occurred. ...it is thought that he was attacked by a seizure of some kind. The primary cause of his demise is believed to have been a sudden blood pressure, or some other seizure.
A Popular Personality.
The late Mr. Allen, who was a native of Auburn (S.A.), and a son of the late Mr. John Allen, had been a member of the House of Assembly since 1902, when he was elected as one of the representatives for Wallaroo. He was about 70 years of age, and was one of the most popular members, and was highly esteemed throughout the State. In 1880 he first went to Yorke's Peninsula, where he engaged in scrub farming, and the knowledge thus gained of agricultural pursuits stood him in good stead when later he become a political representative of the farming community in his own district, An eminently companionable man, with a magnetic personality, he acquired hosts of friends.
In 1911 a number of his constituents, who had noted his indefatigable work in travelling throughout the district on a push bicycle in the interests of the electors, presented him with a motor cycle and a purse of sovereigns for the purchase of petrol, in order to lighten his labour and to show their appreciation.With the exception of a short interval, Mr. Allen represented peninsula interests in the House until his decease. Besides his Parliamentary work, Mr.Allen, during 30 years residence on the Peninsula prior to his removal to Adelaide,had for 10 years been one of the best citizens of Kadina, and had a record of 20 years as a member of district councils (half that period as Chairman). He had also served the State as a member of the Land Board. He took up residence in the metropolis in 1912.
His wife(nee Miss Helen Henderson, of Salisbury) died about 30 years ago. Two daughters-Mrs. E. Day, of Moonta, and Miss Allen,of Charles street. Norwood, with the latter of whom he resided, survive. There are three grandchildren. The late Mr. Allen was a prominent adherent of the Methodist Church.
