Beasley, Emma (1837–1903)

The body of an old age pensioner, named Mrs Emma Beasley, was found in an outhouse at her son-in-law's residence, at Belarbigill, on Sunday. An inquest was held by the coroner, and a verdict of suicide was returned. A piece of cashmere was found tied tightly round her throat, and a piece of the same material was hanging from a beam overhead.
