Andrew Loder (1799–1836)

On Sunday, the 5th instant, as Mr. Andrew Loder of Cockfighter's Creek, Hunter's River, was proceeding home from his station at Liverpool Plains, in company of one of his sons, the latter was thrown from his horse when Mr. Loder galloped away after it. Mr. Loder was not again seen until the Saturday following, and was then found lying in the bush quite dead, apparently from falling with great violence against a tree, as no marks appeared visible of his having moved after falling. His horse came home to his residence on Wednesday, without saddle or bridle, which caused suspicion, and his friends made every search which proved unsuccessful until Saturday; an inquest was held on him by Dr. Little, J. P., and a verdict of "Accidental death" returned. His remains were taken to Patrick's Plains for interment, accompanied by his numerous relations and friends, being a native of this Colony.
