bullet   Another name for William was BILL.


bullet  General Notes:

William was witness at brother George's marriage in 1924. He was a sawdoctor living at 6 Margaret St Ponsonby. The firm called Anderson and Dustin in Auckland was where Fred's son George Dustin served his apprenticeship as a sawdoctor. Bill's eye was removed following a fencing accident. He also lost one finger and had a very hunched back. In the 1960's he lived in a very old house in Auckland, right next to a park with a merry-go-round. He had a very old gramophone in his house and you turned a handle to make it play records. He had a bach up at Pukapuka (near Sullivan Beach) where he was a keen fisherman.(past Waiwera.) It was a tiny little place but I remember we went up to visit him there and we stayed the night, all eight of us. Dad went out in his little dinghy and on the beach there was a huge fish, a kingfish, the first one I had ever seen. It was so big a man cut it up into steaks. Uncle Bill didn't have any children but he was quite nice to us kids. The last memory I have of him is at Grandad Dustin's funeral. He was the only one of his brothers and sisters there. He only had one eye but he was crying. It made me cry too. Lyn Dustin
