Lived ‘up the top’ of the Common with his parents, brothers and sisters. Ab used to work from a young age to help provide for his family while his father was away working in the shearing sheds. Ab clearly remembers having to run and swim across the Macquarie River to hide in the willow trees from the Welfare Board at a young age.
