John Thomas Chaseling (1842–1908)

Mr. John T. [Thomas] Chaseling, of Southampton, died on Tuesday at the age of 66. Deceased was a native of the Hunter district, but came to the Clarence many years ago, and was well known to residents of Grafton and surrounding localities. He had been ailing for some time, so that his end was not altogether unexpected. He leaves a widow, two sons, and five daughters, and numerous friends. The daughters are Mrs. A. Davison, of Double Swamp, Mrs. J. Perring, Coramba, and Mrs. H. Ellem, Strone Park, while two are unmarried. One of the sons, Mr. L. Chaseling, resides at Clarenza, and another is resident at Southampton. Mrs. E. Ferguson, of Grafton, is a sister of deceased. The funeral took place at South Grafton on Wednesday, Rev. H. Woodger conducting the burial service.
