James T I W Eckersley
A railway fitter, named James Eckersley, residing at The Lodge, Kasby-street, South Bathurst, is alleged to have committed
suicide on Friday morning by shooting himself with & pea rifle. Mrs Eckersley and another woman were in the yard
hanging out clothes, when they heard the report of firearms, and rushing into the house found Eskersley lying on a bough with a pea rifle wound over the right ear and the weapon lying near by. Dr. Hurst was immediately summoned, and pronounced life extinct. No reason can be assigned for the rash act. Deceased's wife stated that he should have been at work at 10 o'clock, but overslept himself, and was very cross in consequence. He leaves a widow and two children under 14 years of age. Eskersley had been employed on the railway for three years.
