Vale: Jim Lucy
Jim’s father Dan Lucy moved to Goovigen from Toowoomba in 1922 and was clearing what was to become the family farm “Oldfields” to grow cotton.
By all accounts the going was very tough.
Jim was brought into the world on the 27th July, 1930 on the Oldfields farm, by a Mrs Jameson, a midwife and was assisted by his mother’s two indigenous working girls.
Jim always mentioned them as they were a big part of his early years on the farm.
