Nancy was a member of the Stolen Generation
who was taken to Croker Island in the 1930s. She
doesn’t dwell on the loss of her Aboriginal family
though as her only childhood memories are of the
Methodist mission and the nuns who raised her.
“I had an idyllic and happy childhood,” Nancy
“Croker Island was just beautiful.
“And the nuns were lovely, especially Margaret
Somerville who I always regarded as my mother.
“The way I see it, I had a huge family with 94
brothers and sisters and many of us who are still
around keep in touch.”
Ms Somerville, who died last year aged 101, led
the Croker Island children on a now-famous 5000
kilometre wartime exodus.
Nancy was amongst the 95 children and three
nuns who travelled by boat, foot, canoe, truck
and train from Croker Island to safety in Sydney
The perilous trek has been documented several
times including in a book by Ms Somerville called
‘They Crossed a Continent’ and a 2012 film, Cro-
ker Island Exodus.
When they passed through Tennant Creek all
those years ago, Nancy had no idea she would
return to spend her adult years here.
But after training as a nurse and midwife, work-
ing at the Alice Springs Hospital and the Royal
Flying Doctor Service, Nancy accepted a position
at the Tennant Creek Hospital.
In the 1960s, five German nationals were in-
volved in a car accident near Tennant Creek.
Two or three died in the crash and the survivors
were treated at the hospital.
Her husband-to-be, Josef Schmidt, was one of
About 50 years later, two children (Joseph and
Aloma), grandchildren and hundreds of animals

BRADLEY Murdoch could die in jail if he
doesn’t tell authorities what he has done
with Peter Falconio’s body.
Legislation preventing convicted murderers from
becoming eligible for parole if they don’t reveal the
location of the body of their victim was passed in the
NT Parliament this week.
Murdoch shot British backpacker Peter Falconio
near Barrow Creek 15 years ago, triggering a na-
tionwide search for his killer and international media
He has never revealed what he did with Falconio’s
body, even after he was sentenced to life imprison-
ment with a non-parole period of 28 years in 2005.
NT Minister for Correctional Services John Elferink
said that one of the final dignities a family can afford
to a loved one who is a victim of a violent crime that
ends their life is the celebration of their life, which
includes the ability to lay them to rest.
“This legislation will provide families of these
victims some closure and ensure a murderer is ac-
countable for their own lack of remorse,” he said.
“Release on parole is a privilege, not a right, and
these amendments further solidify this position.”
No body, no parole
