Notes (Page 14)

275. John William Eather

Early on Tuesday morning Mr John Eather, an old and highly respected resident of Bulga, passed away at his residence, at the age of 70 years. The deceased gentleman, who followed the occupation of a grazier, was born at Richmond, N.S.W., but spent the greater part of his life at Bulga, where he was married to Miss Harriet Clark. For some time past he had been suffering from asthma, and lately he caught a cold which brought on pneumonia, and caused his death. In the 70's Mr Eather was a prominent and active member of the Singleton Cricket Club, which at that time was the leading club in the northern district. Besides his widow, five sons and four daughters are left to mourn his death. The funeral took place at the Church 'of England cemetery, Bulga, yesterday, the Rev. Mr Woodhouse officiating. There was a large attendance at the graveside, in cluding friends from Singleton and other parts, who assembled to pay the last tribute to one who had lived a long and honored life.

289.  Edwin Eather

(Narrabri Herald, Jan. 1.) I
The many friends of Mr. Edwin Eather will be I sorry to hear that he met last week with what was very nearly proving a serious accident. It appears that Mr. Eather, who lives at Baan Baa, was making some bush hay, and at the time of the accident occurred was carting it in. By some means or other, which we have not been able to ascertain, the team which he was driving suddenly backed, and throwing Mr. Eather down impaled him on the prongs of a pitchfork which entered the fleshy part of his thigh lengthwise, inflicting a very nasty' wound some eight inches in depth. Medical assistance was promptly secured, and the patient, we are glad to say, is progressing as favourably as the nature of his injuries will permit.
