Sheldrick Wesley Chaseling (1906–1915)

It is with sorrow that we have to report, the death (under dreadfully painful circumstances) of the little son of Mr. and  Mrs. Cyrus Chaseling, of Australian Farm, Leet's Vale. He was a bright little fellow, four years and nine months old and died on the way to Windsor from the result of scalds, accidentally received at home on Friday last. Mr. Chaseling set out in his moter launch on Saturday morning to bring the child to Windsor for medical treatment, but the little sufferer died when they reached Sackville. The father returned home, and the remains were laid to rest in the private cemetery on Australian Farm on Sunday afternoon. Rev. B. Hobson, Methodist, conducted the service, and Mr. David Bocks carried out the duties of undertaker.
