A. C. McEachern, Brisbane
Archibald Cranston McEachern was a wanderer. Born in 1881 in Hill End, NSW, he moved to West Australia after his marriage in 1903 but only stayed there for several years. By 1907 he had moved back to NSW.
He stayed in Lithgow until August 1910 when he left for Sydney with the intention of travelling to Queensland. He had moved Gympie by April 1911, where he became conductor of the local choral society. Only two years later, he was again on the move, this time to Brisbane. Again, he became involved in singing, and also the Masons.
Here he stayed the longest, not leaving for the Southport until around 1935, then Maleny by 1943. He died in 1959.
