Obituary - Tamar CASWELL


Mrs. E. E. Caswell  

The death occurred on June 18, at her residence, Coburn, Wonglepong, of one of the oldest pioneers of the Logan district, Mrs. Tamar Caswell, relict of the late Mr. E. E. Caswell. Mrs. Caswell, who was in her 87th year, was born in Lincolnshire, England, and came to Queensland in the sailing ship Agricola in 1853. She had very vivid recollections of the early pioneering days, when the blacks were numerous and troublesome; also of the disastrous flood in 1864, when she and her parents lost all their belongings in the deluge. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs.  Caswell made their home at Woodhill, near Beaudesert, where they resided for many years, and reared a family of twelve children, all of whom are living, with the exception of one son. There are also 27 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren. Mrs. Caswell resided at Coburn, Wonglepong for over 40 years, and was predeceased by her husband nearly six years ago.   Her favourite hobby was crochet work, specimens of which are greatly admired and prized by her family and friends.

Her parents were listed as Peel WRIGHT and Mary Ann CHAPMAN.

ANOTHER OLD COLONIST GONE


One by one the old pioneers who have   helped to make Queensland history, and have seen the colony grow from its small beginning into the important position it now holds among the Australian colonies, are passing away. Another of them has just been claimed by death in the person of Mr. William Melton, who had attained the ripe old age of 80 years. He made his first acquaintance with Brisbane forty-seven years ago, having arrived in the barque Agrícola  in 1853. He at once settled down in South Brisbane, and has resided there ever since. In the earlier years he was employed with the late Captain T. Winship in assisting to build some of the first steamers which plied on the Brisbane River. Mr. Melton was a native of Bury St. Edmunds in Suffolk. He has left behind him the aged helpmate of his life and a family of three sons and eight daughters and many grandchildren to mourn their loss.

Sad Death




Over the years I have moved house a few times and didn't always have a job to go to when I arrived. Fear of the unknown and the uncertainty of the future do play a large part in the way we react to the events of the day. It must have been quite a burden for Johann.

Johann was aged 35 when he arrived in Brisbane on the 26th of June in 1899. There was no date recorded for his death and no one knew the names of his parents.

He was buried in the South Brisbane Cemetery, Dutton Park Portion 2H, Grave Number 425 on the 8th of July, 1899.

Bessie BROWN (nee McGREGOR) came to keep him company in 1956.

VARDON

An obituary which appeared in the Croydon Mining News on the 24th of July, 1913. Guess they didn't have a lot to say about this politician.

Alice - SCULLY - WILCOX - CLARKE


In a previous post - Unclaimed Money - mention was made of an Alice SULLY who married a WILCOX and went to Australia and assumed the name CLARKE. An article appeared in 'The Sydney Morning Herald' on the 27th of March, 1912 with regards to the will of one Thomas WILCOX and a beneficiary of that will was Alice SULLY.

Later in the same paper the following notice appeared -

NOTE-The said Alice Sully (formerly Wilcox) was a daughter of George Wilcox who was a son of the testator Thomas Wilcox. The said George Wilcox formerly resided at Weston-super-Mare Somerset, and he died on the 27th June 1862. The said Alice Wilcox married Charles Wesley Sully, and resided at Weston-super-Mare aforesaid. She was employed as a Milliner's Assistant until shortly befort the year 1883, when she left Weston-super-Mare and it is alleged went to Australia, and adopted the name of Clarke. It is alleged that she was last heard of in Sydney, New South Wales, in January, 1884.

Murder Suicide


The Murder and Suicide at Smithfield.

(Abridged from the Cairns Advertiser.)

INFORMATION reached Cairns on Boxing Day, from Smithfield, that Mr. Robert Craig had been shot by Bill Smith, and that the latter had shot himself. The particulars, as detailed at a magisterial enquiry before W. Mowbray, Esq., P.M., appear hereunder:— A magisterial enquiry was held on Thursday the 27th instant, before W. M. Mowbray, Esq., P.M., touching the cause of death of Robert Craig and William Smith, of Smithfield, when the following evidence was produced :—

James H. Norris, a constable, stationed at Smithfield, stated:
I remember yesterday, the 26th December; I was in Smithfield all day; I know the deceased Robert Jackson Craig, a storekeeper, and William Smith, a publican, both of Smithfield; at about 8 o'clock in the afternoon I heard several revolver shots—I think five; I immediately went down the street towards Mr. Craig's store; I saw Mr. Craig running across the street—he was running pretty quickly; I saw him immediately afterwards lying in his own door, and Mr. W. Cochrane and several others near him; immediately afterwards I went over to Smith's public-house on the opposite side of the street from Craig's store ; I saw William Smith lying on his back under the verandah; there was blood on his shirt; he stretched out his hand and said, "Will anyone hold me up ?" another man and myself took him by the hands and raised him up to a sitting posture; a few minutes after he seemed to get very weak ; he said, "Oh, I am done !" he died in about fifteen minutes, in the place where he was lying, under the verandah ; I examined his body ; I found the marks of a bullet about two inches under his right breast; there was only a small quantity of blood on his shirt; there were marks of powder on it too; a short time afterwards a packer named James Ferrier gave me a revolver and said "That was the one Smith shot Mr. Craig and himself with"; he said Smith threw it out of his hand when he shot himself, and he (Ferrier) found it lying on the ground beside Smith; I found five barrels had been recently discharged ; I also examined the inside of the dining room at Smith's public-house; I found a bullet, which appears to be one which fits the revolver produced; it was lying on the floor; I could   find no marks of where it had been discharged ; I noticed no bullet marks of where it had been discharged ; I noticed no bullet marks inside the place; there was only one wound on Smith's body; I did not examine Mr. Craig's body; I took charge of Smith until he died ; when I saw Smith was dead, I went over and saw Mr. Craig was dead ; Smith was about 45 or 50 years of age; he has a wife here; he told me about ten days ago he was often going to commit suicide while travelling through the bush; he was sober when he said this: Smith appeared to be under the influence of drink when I saw him immediately after he shot himself; I know of no motive he had for shooting Mr. Craig; I have heard he was in Mr. Craig's debt; he was in the habit of drinking a good deal; he did not get drunk, but got a good deal excited whilst under the influence of drink.

James Ferrier, sworn, said:
I am a packer; I was in Smithfield yesterday afternoon between 2 and 8 o'clock; I was standing at Solomon's store, opposite Smith's public-house ; I heard a noise inside Smith's house ; I heard talking and two shots fired ; the first thing I saw was Craig running out of the front door of Smith's public-house ; he was holding his hand on his breast, shouting out, "Murder!" and that he was done for; Smith ran out close behind him, and fired two shots at him from a revolver; he then held his hand up quickly towards his breast and shot himself; I heard the report and I saw him fall, and drop or throw the revolver down ; he then fell over, and I picked the revolver up and handed it to Constable Norris; the revolver produced is the one; I am sure Craig was wounded when I saw him first; he was holding his hand to his breast and calling out; the whole thing only took a few seconds from the time I heard the first two shots until I saw Smith shoot himself; I ran over as soon as I heard the two shots; Smith fell before I got across the street: he said to me, " Give me a drink of water, old fellow"; someone gave him water; he could not drink it; I afterwards saw both bodies dead ; I knew they were the bodies of Robert Craig and William Smith ; I saw Craig going into Smith's door about a minute before I heard the shots; I saw no one else but Smith and Craig near the public-house.

William Cochrane, sworn, deposed :
I knew the deceased Robert Jackson Craig and William Smith; Mr. Craig was my brother-in-law; I remember yesterday afternoon, about 25 minutes before 8 o'clock ; I heard two shots fired; I was then behind the grocery counter in Mr. Craig's store; I heard Mr. Craig's voice call out " Murder " twice; I ran from behind the counter into the street ; I saw Mr. Craig running across the street from Mr. Smith's public-house towards his store; he was holding his hand to bis breast; I saw Smith holding a revolver in his hand, and standing under his own verandah; I went past Mr. Craig towards Smith ; before I reached him I saw him throw the muzzle of the revolver quickly towards himself ; I heard a shot go off, and Smith fell immediately ; I did not stay to look at him, but turned back towards Mr. Craig; he was then under his own verandah ; he was staggering; I caught hold of him and laid him just inside the doorway of his store ; he died in a few seconds ; he said, "I am done, Bill; I have it in me ;" this was as I was laying him down ; I am not aware of any disagreement between them; Smith came into the store immediately before the occurrence and asked Mr. Craig to go over and he would settle with him ; he owed an account to Mr. Craig, and I understood Smith to mean he was going to pay him ; Mr. Craig then went over to Smith's public-house; they both went out together ; I heard the shots a few seconds afterwards ; Mr. Craig was 84 years of age, a native of Glasgow, Scotland ; his family and friends live in Brisbane ; Mr. Craig and Smith always appeared to be very good friends ; I know of no motive ; Smith was not sober before he came into the store; I did not notice what state he was in when he went out with Mr. Craig ; I noticed he was under the influence of drink about three-quarters of an hour previously ; after Mr. Craig's death I noticed a small wound about three inches below the left breast; it had the appearance of a revolver bullet's wound; it bled very little; it was the only wound I noticed; the two shots I heard were like shots from a revolver; I saw no one but Smith at the public-house.

The depositions were ordered to be forwarded to the Attorney-General. Mr. Robert Craig was (says the Advertiser) a young man in the prime of life, whose wife and children went south about three weeks back. He was one of our earliest merchants; a business man in every particular, and the one most largely engaged here in pursuits of every description. He was held in universal respect, and was justly considered one of the leading men—in fact, it may be said the most prominent one. Amongst the hundreds of packers travelling between this and the Hodgkinson goldfields the name of Craig is as a household word. The deceased had but recently added to his extensive operations the exportation of cedar produced here, and with reference to this a strange coincidence may be mentioned. On Wednesday the Lucy and Adelaide, schooner, arrived for the first cargo of cedar, and must have reached her point of destination, up the Barron River, some- where about the time the melancholy and fatal occurrence took place. Mr. Craig's awful and untimely end has shed a sad gloom throughout Cairns and Smithfield, as it will wherever it is known. The corpse was brought into Cairns on Thursday, and buried in the cemetery, the attendance at the funeral being very large, and without exception every house in town was closed. The funeral service was impressively read by Mr. James Powers. The awful catastrophe, so sudden, so unprovoked, and so very fatal, entirely unhinged everyone's nerves. Business was at a complete standstill, and the sorrowful countenances met at every stop manifested the universal grief for the late Mr. Craig and sincere sympathy for his family. The unhappy murderer's fate can but likewise cause a sorrowful feeling. Smith was a man known by and to all of us. We all are cognisant of recent troubles and misfortunes which overtook him, and, although we cannot conceal from ourselves that those troubles have been sensibly brought about by bis own passions and irregular conduct, still a thought of christian and human regret must flash through our brain, knowing this man took his own life at the moment he took that of another, and was hailed into the presence of his Maker without time to implore divine forgiveness for the cruel and cowardly murder he had committed.

Old Smithfield


SOMETHING ABOUT SMITHFIELD.

Tragedies Which Occurred There.

The Shooting of Craig, "Coyyan" contributes the following article on Smithfield:-

Smithfield was situated on the north side of the Barron River, and was opened previous to Cairns as the port for the Hodgkinson goldfield. It is named after Bill Smith, who also opened the track to the Cairns inlet and Smith's CreeK landing, where the first goods and passengers were landed. Smithfield township only lasted eight months, but during that time it left some history to record. Smith fatally shot Craig, the merchant, who at the third shot fell in the doorway of his store. Smith committed suicide with the same revolver, but lived for about two hours. Craig died instantly.

A young man named Cunningham shot Frank, the packer, and also robbed him. He was caught at Bowen, on his way south, and was at the time wearing Frank's ring. He suffered the supreme penalty in the old Petrie Terrace Gaol.   

A policeman was seriously injured when using an adze, erecting the police camp in Smithfield. A young policeman on escort duty and Inspector Joley were shot at Stratford, and were carried to the camp by a packer named Guilfoyle. The policemen were buried on the river bank at Stratford. Guilfoyle met a tragic end at Black Gully, on the  Herberton road, and a man named Rody Hogan received a life sentence for the deed. It was the result of a drunken brawl.

The first cattle brought to Smithfield and Cairns were taken there by a Mr. Bird, father of the present  Baird Bros., of Merriwinni. Magnus Peterson was the first purchaser, and paid £10 per had for eight cows.

Smithfield Range Track

The Government expended £12,000 on the Smithfield range track. All work at that time was done by Government parties, and wages were 7/6 per day, and rations. Chas. McDonald, afterwards owner of Warthedge Station, was works inspector for the North. Carriers (bullock teams) who used this road were George the Greek, Reynolds, Cuddily, Mahony, Mullavey, and others. About 100 pack teams were also operating to the various fields at that time.

During the 1881 flood the waters reached the foot of the range, all Smithfield being submerged, and the few residents had a very anxious time. Mrs. Kopp was three nights and four days in a flattie, and subsisted on a  young pig that she caught when  swimming past the boat. Smithfield at one time was practically deserted, only two families remaining there. Double Island was selected by a Mr. Jamieson, and was known as the Buchan Estate. Yorkie's Knob is named after a beche-de-mur fisherman who died on Green Island, of which he was caretaker.

(To the Editor.)

Sir, Scattered throughout Australia and New Zealand there are thousands of families who are entitled to funds in Chancery, monies and properties, the existence of which they have no knowledge. Many of these are the descendants of people who emigrated to Australia, and New Zealand in the early days and lost all touch with their relations and kindred. Some of the latter amassed money in the land of their birth, whilst others emigrated to Canada and the United States, and died there intestate, leaving substantial fortunes. Every year a large number of advertisements appear in Australian, New Zealand and British newspapers inserted by solicitors, trustees executors and by order of the Court of Chancery, in respect of beneficiaries, next-of-kin, etc., sought for to claim money and property, who, or whose descendants or representatives are supposed to be resident in Australia or New Zealand, and a selection from the principal of these advertisements which have appeared during the year 1912, may interest, and be of possible benefit to your large circle of readers : —
