    Notes 
    • Frank Lachlan Atkinson was a reserved and very respectable man. He was tall and thin, with a large moustache. Frank Lachlan moved to Trundle before it was an established settlement, and worked as a sheep overseer on "The Troffs" Station. When Trundle became a closer knit settlement, he bought a farm which was named "Glenrock Farm". The severe drought of 1900, forced him to find other means of support and he purchased a steam engine & chaff cutter. With his two sons Arthur & Jim (James Henry), he would drive the engine, towing the chaff cutter, to farms in the Trundle district and cut the farmer's chaff. Jim would tend to the steam engine and keep it in good repair. The Steam engine was sold to a sawmill near Narrabri, just before the second Wold War, and the Chaffcutter was sold to and taken to Condobolin. Later, Frank opened a butcher shop in Trundle, and his sons Elwyn and Jim (James Henry) would slaughter the meat, and his other son Clarrie (Clarence), and Frank Lachlan would run the shop . On retiring, Frank Lachlan sold the butcher shop and Clarrie went to Lithgow to a butcher shop. Frank Lachlan would sit in a deck chair on the front verandah of his home and smoke a curly, cherry wood pipe. His index finger was blackened from pushing the tobacco down into the pipe to keep it alight.
