George Ernest Chaseling (1864–1941)

The death occurred recently at Coolabunia (Q.) of Mr. G. E. J. [George Ernest James] Chaseling (72), a former resident of the Clunes and Eltham districts. The late Mr. Chaseling left the North Coast in 1906 and settled on dairying property in the Coolabunia district known as "Woonona." He continued in Queensland the keen interest he took in district organisations and his church while on the North Coast and had a wide circle of friends. He was also a prominent breeder of A.I.S. stock. He is survived by his widow, who was formerly Miss Clara Adeline Knight, of Woonona, South Coast, one son, Lieut. James Arthur Chaseling, of the A.I.F., Darwin, and four daughters. The late Mr. Chaseling was an uncle of Mesdames W. J. Dillon (Alstonville) and A. I. Elliott (Tuckomby). A sister of Mrs. Chaseling is Mrs. Montgomery, of Lismore, and Mr. A. Knight, of Kyogle, is her brother.
