Hayes, Edwin Alexander (1829–1845)

Deaths: Yesterday, Master Edwin Alexander Hayes, aged 15 years, the eldest son of Attwell E. Hayes. While on a shooting excursion with two of his young companions, at Double Bay, in climbing over a broken bridge, the fowling-piece, which he held in his hand, getting entangled with one of the logs, suddenly went off, and the contents passed through his heart. He fell against the adjacent bank and immediately expired. The dawning talents, and many amiable qualities of this lamented young gentleman, endeared him to all who knew him.
