  • William and Annie Draper had a son also named William Draper. He went to live with his grandfather George Bolger on Magnetic Island (Bolger Bay) after William Snr was killed in an accident involving his cart (He was a bullock driver). William Jnr joined the army in Townsville and fought in the first world war. Girlie is listed as his next of kin on his army papers. He was gassed in France. He died several years later leaving his widow Alice nee Douglas and a son, also named William Draper. You may contact me for further information and photos.
