According to RHC, her mother grew up in a log cabin that was wall papered on the inside with newspaper. Dot lay in bed reading the stale news on the wall.

According to Bess Glasson, Aunt Dot was a maid to John Glasson’s first family, for which she was paid 6d a week.

Dot became bookkeeper to A Kraushaar & Sons, but how did she start work there and meet CC? A plausible theory is that Dot’s sister Ollie married Charlie Moulder in 1907 in Sydney. Their first child Randolph was born in 1907 and second child Edward in Dec 1908. Dot may have travelled to Sydney to visit Ollie and seen the July 1908 ad in SMH for girls from respectable addresses wanted by A Kraushaar & Sons. Con and Dot were married 18 months later.

During her Thirroul years, Dot was a very close friend of Nurse Margaret Taylor.
