Francis George Gallimore (1843–1897)

A magisterial inquiry was held by Mr. J. W. Chapman at Wyong yesterday on the body of Francis George Gallimore, who was found dead on the side of the mountain near Jillaby. Death was found to be due to syncope. It appears that the deceased, who was a timber-getter, left his home for his work on Tuesday morning, and not returning at the usual time in the evening, his wife became alarmed, and a search party was formed, with the result that his dead body was found on the mountain side.
