Francis Michael Goss and Tamazine Annie Bartlett
3-Francis Michael Goss was born on 4 Nov 1883 in Westbury, Tasmania, died on 22 Jun 1953 in Ulverstone, Tasmania at age 69, and was buried on 22 Jun 1953 in General Cemetery, Ulverstone, Tasmania. Another name for Francis was Frank. He served in the First World War.
Francis married Tamazine Annie Bartlett on 10 Apr 1918 in Lower Barrington, Tasmania after returning from World War 1. Tamazine was born on 13 Dec 1892 and died on 7 Jul 1963 at age 70. They settled at Ulverstone and had one son:
- Alexander Samuel.
Frank became a drover, on one occasion moving 300 cattle and 17 horses from Cooee to Claremont, with assistance from his father Samuel ("Old Sam"), a nephew Victor, and one Frank O'Donnell. They were 11 days on the road. It has been stated that Frank had a problem because he couldn't whistle, and hence was forced to buy a whistle in order to work his dogs. Many drovers habitually used a metal whistle anyway, because in those days of unsealed roads and choking dust, lips soon became too cracked and swollen to whistle without artificial help.
Some drovers, including Norman Walker, preferred to make their own whistles from the flat, round, inner metal lid of a tobacco tin by bending it to approximately the shape of a hairpin and boring or punching a hole in one side. The operator placed the curved edge against his mouth, and the blast produced was fairly indescribable.
