Graham, Andrew (1851–1908)

Andrew Graham, 57 years of age, was instantaneously killed at South Grafton to-day. He, with two others, was engaged unloading pine logs from his waggon that had arrived from Nymboida, when one measuring 14ft. long and over 7ft in girth, rolled off, and, falling on deceased, crushed him against another log that lay near the waggon. The upper portion of his body and skull was crushed to pulp, and the brains scattered about.

The body was extricated with some difficulty.

Deceased, who resided at Blaxland's Flat, was a native of Nymboida, and leaves a widow and 11 children. An inquest will he hold to-morrow.
