In Memory Of
Who was killed by accident
I the Young Australia Mine, Mulline
5th March 1901
Aged 43 years
Erected by his friends


Accidentally fell down the shaft in the Young Australia Mine. An inquest was held at Mulline on 6 March 1901. He was described as being one of the oldest, best known, pluckiest and most highly-esteemed prospectors in the Mulline district. He was one of the oldest of West Australian prospectors, being one of the earliest of the prospectors of the Murchison. He went out to Mulline five years before and held interests ever since in the district, in which he had great faith. He was one of the original shareholders in the well known Lady Gladys lease, but sold his interest for the purpose of devoting himself to working the Young Australia, concerning the future of which he was most sanguine. Buried by George Greenway, witnessed by PM Anderson and George Wilson. Death certified in writing by Police Constable William George Cramer (Regimental Number 151), Mulwarrie.
