Fruito block a sample bag at the show; a family noted for catering and the name Weis springs to mind.
Les and Bob Weis's great grandfather John, arrived in Sydney in 1856, drawn to Australia by the gold rush.
Shortly after his arrival he went to be diggings in Prospect NSW where he married, on Christmas Day 1856 another German migrant Eva Nuss.
Eva was born in Kembach in the Black Forest, and had been sent to Australia by her father to work. She was to send money home to help support is rather large family of 21 children, which he had fathered to his two wives and the remainder were stepchildren from his third marriage. However once in Australia and safe from Papa, Eva promptly forgot her obligations.
It was about 1860 that John and Eva moved to the Darling Town brought a large block of ground at Middle Ridge and cultivated a mixed farm which supported seven children whose names were, John, Joseph, Catherine, Frederick, Christie, Eva, Catherine Barbara and Elisabeth Louise.
In the early years isolation and the wilderness were frightening. The fear of children wandering off into the bush was ever present. This happened to Frederick when he was two years old. He was found alive and well. The Weis home was in Hume Street approximately where the middle Ridge telephone exchange now stands.
The Weis family loved their garden. Despite the hours of hard toil in the field, it was not unusual to see the family working in their flower garden at dusk.
