John Thomas (Jack) Boyter (1879–1911)

Making Kempseyward on Monday in the best of spirits, Mr. [John  T.] Boyter, though an epileptic seizure it is surmised, lost control of the horse he was riding and was dashed against a telegraph pole and killed. He is to be buried to-day in Fredrickton Cemetery, and the Rev. H. W. Dains has the sad duty of officiating.
