Arthur Nunn (born 16 Mar 1871 Dinmore, Qld, Australia, died 29 Sep 1943 Rockhampton, Qld, Australia) married Helen Rutherford Campbell (born 11 Dec 1875, Skinflats, Bothkennar, Stirling, Scotland, died 8 Aug 1956, Rockhampton, Qld, Australia) and fathered six children (see below).
In 1900, Arthur was witness to an accidental shooting in which a friend he was with used the butt of a rifle to move a boat into the bank of a creek. It discharged and wounded him in the thigh. The young man bled to death before reaching hospital. There is a fuller explanation in a newspaper report here.
