Pile, James (?–1864)

A very sad case of two sudden bereavements has taken place here in the family of Mr. James Pile, of Beckwith, near Gawler. Yesterday the news arrived that the eldest son — Mr. James Pile, jun.— had been drowned while attempting to cross the Anabranch in a mungo; and yesterday evening Mrs. Glen, a daughter of Mr. Pile, died at the house at Beckwith. I believe her death was quite unexpected, as she was apparently recovering from a recent confinement and seemed in fair health just previous to her death. Such a sad affliction has seldom fallen on a family in such a short time, and deep sympathy is felt in Gawler for the bereaved parents and husband. Mr. Glen is at his station, and his brother-in-law, Mr. McKinlay, started to-day to convey to him the mournful intelligence.
