Joshua Charles Chaseling (1842–1909)

Mr Joshua Chaseling who resided near Casino, died in the Grafton Hospital at 7 o’clock this morning (says the Argus of Wednesday). Mr Chaseling consulted a medical man in Casino, who held out no hope for his recovery, and he came to Grafton 10 days ago and entered the hospital here, but nothing could be done for him. He was suffering from a stomach complaint and the condition of his heart was such as to prevent any operation. Deceased was a brother of Mrs E. F. Ferguson, of Grafton, and Messrs Rowland, Kenneth, Oliver and Edward Chaseling, of this district. Mrs Stewart (Richmond River), Mr William Chaseling (Tuggerah), and Mrs E. Lawton (Sydney), were also sister and brother, respectively, of deceased, who was aged 67 years. A peculiar feature in connection with the death is that, just about 12 months ago, a twin brother, Mr John Chaseling, of Gerrymberryn, died of a similar trouble, and a sister also died under similar circumstances.
