From left Arthur Nunn and wife Helen Rutherford Campbell from their wedding day
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.
