Carse, Samuel Henry (Sam) (1854–1897)

It is with deep and sincere regret that we (Jerilderie Herald) have to announce the death of Mr Samuel H. Carse in Sydney on Monday last.

The news of his death when received caused genuine and widespread regret, as the deceased was well known and a favourite for years in these parts. For years, beginning in the early seventies, he was engaged as bookkeeper on the Yanko Station, and afterwards he was entrusted with the managership, which position he occupied for several years. Having left it for a more lucrative position, he only paid the town periodic visits, but on these occasions the hearty good feeling in which he was met by all, testified to the high esteem in which he was held here. When the news came of his death on all sides were heard expressions of regret and sympathy with the bereaved family. Poor Sam Carse! You are gone, and we only echo the sentiments of all who knew yon here, that a whiter man than you never trod the streets of Jerilderie. We hear that just prior to his death he sent messages to two or three of his more intimate friends in Jerilderie.
