Butcher? Drover? Livestock dealer? I wouldn't dismiss the first one
just yet. These occupations would appear to be inter-related.

I think maybe his son could have been an auctioneer or dealer in livestock and perhaps that would then tie in with his father's occupation. I had a possible census record for James Dible who was shown as a butcher. I think now that that is probably the wrong record because the marriage entry is definitely correct. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to look for me Lynda> From:
