MR. George Jenner, of Kapunda, who died in his 86th year on December 10, 1953, was born at Currency Creek on December 30, 1867. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Jenner, very early pioneers who came from Kent, England. When the Clare district was opened up, the family moved to Penwortham. George Jenner became a Catholic several years before his marriage to Miss Mary McCann at St. Aloysius’ College in 1899, and then made his home at Mintaro, where he was employed at Kadlunga Station for about 19 years. After spending four years at Dubbo, in N.S.W., he returned to S.A. and took up farming in the Kapunda district. On his retirement he went to live in Kapunda. He leaves a widow, a daughter (Kathleen, of Adelaide), and a son (Jack, of Spalding). May he rest in peace.
