Holmes, Charles (1823–1867)

Last Saturday's ' Tamworth Examiner' states that on the previous Saturday morning a carrier or hawker named Charles Holmes was found lying dead near the spot where he had camped on the previous evening. A bottle of rum was taken from the pocket of deceased, who had been known for 25 years, and as an inveterate drunkard, by Dr. Dowe. The Dr.'s opinion was that death had resulted from apoplexy. Holmes was a resident of Windsor.
