Description: A very general outline of the activity of Joseph (Guiseppe) Dalco, sawmiller, Lady's Bay. Educated as a priest in Italy, some say as a monk, he ran away from his seminary. He came to Tasmania and ran a saw mill for Henry Jones & Co. in the area between Lady Bay and Esperance Bay. Dalco's Creek is named after him. He dressed like a toff all his life, even wearing top hat and tails in the saw mill. The Dalcos later moved to Verona Sands. The file gives details about other members of the Dalco family including family researchers.
