Don PHILLIPS: My wife’s father’s family moved from NSW to Cue in the mid-1890s. They were the Chesson family and figure quite a bit in the early days of Cue and Day Dawn. Trish’s grandfather was a hotel owner in Day Dawn. The most famous of the brothers was Jim who owned (in partnerships) mines, processing plant and even a timber collecting company. He was one of the original owners of the Big Bell mine. The story of Jim’s arrival in Cue is an interesting one.
