The family lived on Yingubay Station near Roma, and at some stage nearly all of them lived around Moorooka and Salisbury.

The parents Samuel James (or Jim) and Catherine Mary moved from the Roma area, and in 1925 Catherine was living at Buranda with George.  In 1943 along with James and George she was still at Salisbury St, Buranda.

George Knight Herron was in WW1 and he was taken POW at Reincort.  He served in the 15th Light Horse and saw action on the Western Front.  From census records he did not marry, and often lived with his parents throughout his life.  He worked as a labourer and a cleaner.  He died on 10th March 1968 and his address at the time was 61 Brisbane Road, Labrador.  He may have died intestate, as his solicitor at the time contacted the army for a copy of his will.

Florence Ethel Herron married Edward Stephenson, and they lived Hensen Road Salisbury

Grace Kathleen Herron worked at Chinchilla at the Hotel in the census of 1919 and she married William Robert McGregor  from Chinchilla, in 1928, and he worked in the railways.  They moved often, and in the 1943 census they were living in Booval, in 1949 they were again back at Salisbury.

Samuel James (Jim) Herron partnered Katie Isabelle Annesley (nee Jillett).  They lived on many stations including some time at Orallo where Florence and Edward also lived.  He and Katie seemed to be together right up until about 1949, and from there he chose to go back out west and she lived at Salisbury with her son Dale and his wife Ethel.

In letters that Katie wrote in 1953 just 11 days prior to her death, she  mentioned Jim, which seem to indicate her son Jim, who had plant and equipment for fencing,  but not her husband Jim.   She indicated that she would be going to live with Wilfred their youngest son, who had returned from Japan in 1948, and who was living at Bargara in Bundaberg.

Records show that he was living out west with his son Jim, and Jimís record of events mentions that also.

Margaret Ella Herron married Edward Stephenson, and they lived in Hensen Road Salisbury and then in the 1954 census at 146 Ness Road, Salisbury.    Edward and Edgar were brothers, and they came from a family of 12 children, born to John Edward Stephenson and his wife Ada Mary Jackson.

William Francis Herron married Esther Isabella (surname unknown).  They lived throughout their life at Blackburn St, Moorooka.

During his life, Dale often mentioned his cousin Norma Stephenson,  who was a nurse.  She must have been the daughter of either Margaret or Florence.
