About 1870 Thomas De lacy Moffet purchased a portion of Myall Creek station from Charles Coxen and named it `Cumkillunbah`. Later the name was changed to Kaimkillumbun and the township of that name is now situated on a section of that property. John and Julia worked for Thomas Moffet and it is believed that they were married while employed on the `Cumkillumbah` holding. In the early 1900`s John and Julia selected `Mount Pleasant`, a property near Irvingdale. This was to be the family home until John’s death. Later Julia moved to Dalby.

Emigrated ‎± 1861
