Mai had married a Mr Smith, a local boy who emigrated to Australia, joined the Australian Forces in World War I and came back to fight in France. He re-met Mai and married her but shortly afterwards was killed. Mai called the bungalow Murrumburra after the place in Australia where he came from. the name meant "My Home" in Aborigine.
