Celebrating 100 years since the arrival in Australia of Charles and Mary Massam (nee Halsall) and family of nine in 1913, from Lancashire, England. A large part of the family spent years farming in the Yerapin area of the Bruce Rock Shire. The unmarried ones who stayed were Queenie, Peggy, Elsie, Charlie and Joe. Harry (also unmarried) worked on the farm for years, and later moved to Perth and became a school cleaner. Ann (Queenie) Massam ran the one-teacher Yerapin State School for decades until it closed in 1942, then taught in various other country schools. The Tom Massam (Senior) and Kit family farmed with Jack Massam at Narembeen, leaving there around 1934, and ran a shop in Perth. The Jack and Vi Massam family moved to Mount Magnet in the 1930s, goldmining. Years later the moved to Perth. The Ted and Bobby Massam family were on the railways, and later farmed at Mukinbudin for years. Later the couple moved to Jurien Bay, then to Gingin. A church service and reunion will be held in Perth on January 27. It would be great to see new faces. By January 20 please contact: Carol Phillips, 9398 6952 or 0408629571; John Massam, 9343 9532.
