Sidebottom, Samuel (?–1849)

An accident, attended with fatal consequences, occurred near Bargo River a few days since, by which a strong hale man of about thirty years of age, named Samuel Sidebottom, was prematurely ushered into the presence of his Maker. An inquiry was held by George Bransby, Esq., Coroner, at Grays Pastoral Hotel, on the 25th, and adjourned to the 27th, when a verdict that the deceased fell from his dray, and the wheel passing over his body, caused death, was recorded. It appeared from the evidence taken, that deceased had been employed driving a dray-load of iron from Major Loekyer's lately discovered mine, and he incautiously sat on the pole of his dray, from which he fell, and the wheel passing over his body, instant death ensued.
