McCulloch, William Fenton (1860–1943)

As soldier, seaman, schoolmaster, and farmer, Mr. William Fenton McCulloch, who died in a private hospital at Hobart on Thursday, led an adventurous life. Born at Bendigo in 1860, he was the son of the late Robert McCulloch, police inspector in Victoria. His mother, Georgina Sophia McCulloch, was formerly a Miss Fenton. Mr. McCulloch fought in the Chilean War of Independence, the Maori wars in New Zealand, and in the Spanish American War. He sailed round the world in windjammers, and first settled on the land on Maria Island. He married in 1915 Julia Mabel Murchison, who survives him.
