From The Advertiser, Adelaide, Friday 9 November 1951 (via Trove, January 2012):
Before Mr. L. F. J. JOHNSTON
Two Men Gaoled
Two Victorian salesmen were each sent to gaol for six months on an admitted charge that at Outer Harbor on October 31 they were unlawfully in possession of a motor car suspected of having been stolen.
The defendants were Anthony Thomas Palmer, 21, of Coventry street, South Melbourne, and John Kennedy Minter, 19, of the same address.
When the hearing was resumed yesterday PCC H. C. Gill, who prosecuted, said that Palmer had told the police that after stealing the car himself in Ballarat on October 23, he and Minter had driven it to Adelaide, via Mount Gambier. They had been selling household goods on time payment on a commission basis.
Palmer had said that he and Minter intended to keep the car for a while and then take it back to Melbourne, where it would have been dumped.
According to Minter, he had met Palmer by appointment in Ballarat after the car had been stolen. Both had worked and boarded together in Melbourne.
Mr. J. E. Kelly, for the defendants, gave evidence of previous good character and made sub missions for leniency.
The magistrate said that the valuable car had done 1,250 miles since it was taken and it had also been considerably damaged.

48 William was a carpenter of Barham in 1814 (when his daughter Mary was baptised) and 1816; a farmer of Barham in 1818 and of Elham between 1823 and 1830.
1841 census: in Postling Lane, Postling, Kent, William (50, farmer), Susan (48), Caroline (14), John (14) and Thomas (11).

Peter Marshall August 2007:
"One other historical fact about William Laker. He appears on the 1843 Tithe Map for Postling, Kent as occupier of:-
24 Malthouse Farm
25 Malthouse Meadow
26 & 27 Part of Chalky Field
28 Part of Tollsfoot Field.
I have been to Postling and it is a lovely village that has barely changed in a hundred years. However the soil is wet, heavy, clay. Farming could not have been easy."

1851 census (indexed as COKER by in Postling Lees, Postling, Kent, William (62, farmer of 55 acres), Susannah (61) and John (24, farmer's son). Married daughter Mary PREBBLE and her husband James plus four children were next door.

1861 census: at Vents Farm, Postling, Kent, William (72, farmer of 14 acres) and Susan (71). And a visitor Sarah Minter (unmarried, 52, born Barham, Kent [Susan(na)'s sister]). At nearby Malthouse Farm were John Laker (33, farmer of 50 acres employing 1 man and 1 boy, born Elham, Kent), his wife Mary A Laker (27, born Aldington, Kent) and children William (6, scholar), Elizabeth (4, scholar), Margaret (2) and John (1), all born in Postling.

Buried in Postling aged 78.

Peter Marshall August 2007: "William and Susanna had a grandchild (Helen) Mary Laker through their son George. Mary Laker wrote several books but the most interesting is Vulcan Daughters which tells of her early years in the early 1900's, growing up as a blacksmith's daughter in Headcorn, Kent. Also contains quite a few photos of the family."

March 2008: Peter Marshall has obtained a copy of the death certificate: it shows that William died on 25th March 1867 at Postling, Kent aged 77. Occupation was Farmer. Cause of death was " Heart disease - Certified" and the death was reported by X the mark of Sarah Webb present at the death.

BRYANT, Farrar Ingram Hunter "Boss" (I2672)
50 "Gus" MINTER was the youngest one of the children of the "Pappy" MINTER family,
and the only one of them who was native born Texan. When a young man, he
traveled to Red River Parish, Louisiana, to live at the home of his Uncle Olive
Hunter MINTER. He worked there as a farm hand. He came back to Pine Forest,
Hopkins County, Texas, and bought part of the farm which had belonged to his
parents during their years. He was a successful farmer. He was twice married,
and raised a total of nine children.

"Uncle" Gus, in his retirement years, spent a lot of time at the village stores
of Pine Forest. There were three general stores, an ice house, a grist mill an
a blacksmith shop. Gus had a vivid imagination, and was a master story teller.
The stories were always of things he had experienced. A couple of examples are
as follow:

At Gus' family home there was a spring of wonderfully cold, soft water located
about 100 yards east of the house, and Gus' second wife, Aunt Becky, got Gus to
haul water from the spring to the house for her to use in laundering their
clothes, Gus had a sled with a wooden stave barrel fastened down on top of it
for the purpose of hauling the water. He would fill the barrel with the spring
water, then hitch a mule to the sled, and the mule would pull the sled to the
house. The sparkplug of the story was the fact that Gus had recently had a
horsehide tanned, and he had fashioned some rawhide harness for his team. The
first occasion he had had to use the new harness was to put it on the mule and
haul up some water on wash day. So he harnessed the mule and hooked up to the
sled. He said upon inspection, everything seemed to be in order. He started
the mule forward and drove him/her to the house, but when they got there, and
Gus looked, the sled was still sitting at the spring, and that new rawhide
harness had stretched all of the way to the house!

Another one of his tales was the one about the muskmelons. It seems that
someone of Gus' acquaintance, who dwelt in Dallas, Texas, sent Gus some
muskmelon seed. Nobody at Pine Forest had ever seen or heard of any farm
product of that nature before, other than regular cantalopes. Gus was told by
his benefactor that when the muskmelons ripened they wouldn't turn yellow like
cantalopes, but they remained green color, and that the only way one could be
sure that they were ripened would be to smell them. If they were ripe, the
aroma would be heavenly, unmistakable. "Uncle" Gus prepared a plot of land
north of the house and just east of the main road to/from Pickton, and planted
his new kind of melons. They thrived, and Gus cared for them faithfully. By
and by, when the melons got full sized, he wanted to find out of any one of the
had got ripe, so he went up to the patch and got down on his knees to smell of
them. People going up and down on the Pickton road saw him down on his knees in
the melon patch, and they believed that a miracle had happened. "Uncle" Gus
must have been converted and out there on his knees crying out to the All
Mighty. The preacher was informed. He got a delegation together, and they
called upon "Uncle" Gus, to pray and praise the Lord with him.

Next year Gus went back to planting cantalopes.
