Francis (Frank) Hailey (1852–1911)

Word was received here on Tuesday, that an accident of some kind had befallen Mr. Frank Hailey, rabbit inspector for the land district of Carcoar. His wife and son journeyed out to Porter's Retreat, where the message came from, and on Wednesday about three o'clock a message came through to say that he died on Wednesday. No particulars have arrived as to the cause of death, and several rumours are afloat to the effect that he was thrown out of his sulky, and others that he dropped dead. The deceased has been living in the district for a number of years, but lately removed to Carcoar. He leaves a widow and a family to mourn his loss. He was also a lay preacher in the Church of England.
