Woodside, James (1869–1877)

We (Beechworth Advertiser) greatly, regret to hear that a son, eight years of age, of Mr. J. Woodside, of Happy Valley station, was killed instantaneously on Monday evening near his father's house. It seems, as far as we can gather, that an elder boy, John, was driving a team of bullocks home wards about sundown, and was accompanied by the younger boy James. By some means the poor little fellow got jammed between one of the dray wheels and a stump, and was killed on the spot
