Samuel Charles Carter (1861–1922)

The death occurred on Saturday at his residence, Rosebrook, of Mr. Samuel Charles Carter, the well-known grazier. The deceased, who was 61 years of age was a son of Mr. John Carter, who with his brothers, Samuel and William, were owners of Walmer Station. After the three brothers married they divided up their station properties consisting of Walmer, North Brighton and Pine Plains among themselves. A few years after that the partnership was dissolved and Walmer was sold, being cut up into farming areas and the name reversed to Remlaw. The deceased returned to Rosebrook, where he had resided ever since, carrying on his occupation of grazier. For two years he had suffered from heart disease, and this was the cause of death. He had a station on the Murray, and when his father died he returned to Brim Springs. The Carter family first acquired Rosebrook in 1841, and had been continuously in residence there ever since. The Carter family is one of the first established in the Wimmera. In 1919 deceased had a bad attack of influenza and that affected his heart. He was born at Brim Springs and was married at Wodonga, his widow surviving him, to whom and to the family—John Charles Murray, Marie Robertson (Mrs. H. Southcott), Allan Victor, Otway Vernon, Vera Elizabeth (Mrs. Malcolm MacInnes), and Kenneth Samuel—much sympathy has been extended. The very trying experiences that Vernon underwent during the war will be recalled by the interview that appeared in our columns on his return from captivity when he gave a vivid description of the hard work the Germans made him perform in a coal mine in Germany. The remains were brought to Horsham for interment, the cortege moving from the Presbyterian Church yesterday afternoon for the cemetery, where William, Alexander, Charles and Cyril Carter, and John and Robert Elliot were the pall-bearers. At the graveside the Rev. E. G. Petherick read the funeral service. The mortuary arrangements were carried out by Mr. E. A. Boyle.
