After 3 years in Australia Venz took the Oath of his Aliens Memorial and was Naturalised on the 22 September 1914 at Loxton, SA. On the 21st October 1914 a Police Report tells of him leaving Loxton on the 13th October 1914 with 7 other German Reservists, bound for Queensland. This report by Mounted Constable R. A. Lenthall, of Loxton, S.A., states : "Venz refused to give any information about himself and stated that when the war is ended he will leave Australia and go back to Germany. In my opinion, Venz desired to become naturalized so as when he returned to Germany he would be exempt from Military Training as he deserted from Germany when he was ordered by the Military Authorities into Barracks. Venz is a laborer and apart from his earnings has no other means of support." Nothing further of Venz's story has as yet been found.

Julius VETTER - was born on the 12th day of April 1886 at Golßen (Golssen), near Luckau, Kreis Dahme, in the Spreewald district of the Neumark of Brandenburg, in the Deutsch Reich of former Prußia. Vetter emigrated out of Deutschland and arrived in Australia on the ship "PORT CURTIS" on the 12th September 1911 at the Port of Adelaide. On disembarking Vetter went up to Tanunda for a year and then immigrated to Sydney, New South Wales for six months, but then returned to South Australia, working at the Smelter Town of Port Pirie. After two years in Australia, Julius Vetter was unmarried , then working as a Fitter at age 28, residing at Solomontown, near Port Pirie, when he took the Oath of his Alien's Memorial to be Naturalised before Mr Simon McBeath, Justice of the Peace of south Australia, on the 15th September 1913.

Theodor Wilhelm VETTER -

Theodor Wilhelm VETTER was a Cabinet Maker and Builder. He may have come to grief by this factory fire tragedy - unless it was an insurance fraud

From 1909 to 1912 he was the President of the South Australian Germany Association and entertained the then Governor at their 25th Anniversary celebrations in 1911. Born Deutschland was married at age 49 to the 33 year-old Mary May BRICE at the Registry Office Adelaide, SA on the 17th June 1920 by which time Mary May had already borne him two children. It appears that his public image as a community builder was different to how the family remember him, which was as an unpleasant character. In fact he is thought of as a man whose son ran away at age 14 and changed his name so that he couldn't be found. It seems that he became a smalltime villain in Adelaide as a petty fraudster. - And the following suggests that he may have been a threatening fellow.

Apparantly he wasn't naturalised before WW1 so he got arrested in in 1941 as an illegal alien when he tried to apply for naturalization (he was unsuccessful). Theodore died in Adelaide in 1943. Family data courtesy of descendant, Kevin R. Brady.
