James Andrew Chaseling (1842–1881)

We regret to record the death of Mr. James Chaseling, of Terrara, who died at his residence last Sunday, from the effects of congestion of the lungs, a complaint which, we are informed, was in an advanced stage before deceased deemed it advisable to consult a medical gentleman. Mr. Chaseling was a comparatively young and vigorous man, being only 39 years of age. He leaves a large family, principally daughters, but not unprovided for, as he was a frugal, industrious man. The remains of Mr. Chaseling were conveyed to their last resting-place in the Wesleyan portion of the public cemetery, Nowra, whither they were followed by a large cavalcade of mourners.
