Emily Myrtle Nunn (1905-1996) married Albert Newsome and they had one child. They moved to Townsville.
Their son Rex has written extensively about growing up in North Queensland and about their rail trips to Rockhampton. Rex was an extraordinary individual who was initially refused formal education because of his cerebral palsy but overcame that to earn a doctorate and become a University of Queensland psychology lecturer.
