from Pastoral Review, 15 April 1914

The death occurred on the 16th of last month at Sir Alexander McCormick's private hospital, Sydney, after a serious operation, at the age of sixty-five, of Mr. L. E. Wiseman, of Brushgrove, Uralla, N.S.W., and formerly of Elmswood, Gundy. Mr. Wiseman belonged to one of the early pioneering families of the Hawkesbury. In the Scone district, which he left about eight years ago, Mr. Wiseman filled many important offices. He was for years a justice of the peace and a member of the local licensing bench; he was chairman of the Murrurundi (afterwards Upper Hunter) P.P. Board; and upon the establishment of local government he became the first chairman of the Woolooma Shire Council, to the work of all of which he gave his closest attention. The deceased was also a good churchman, and regularly represented his parish at the synod of the diocese. After leaving Scone he continued his public work, and became a member of the Gostwyck Shire Council, and president of the Uralla Show Committee, an office which he still held at the time of his death. The deceased, who was a devoted husband and father, leaves a widow and family of seven daughters and four sons. One of the latter was married to Miss Bessie Proctor, daughter of Mr. R. Proctor, of Bolwarra. Mrs. J. H. Doyle, of Invermein, is a sister of the deceased, who was widely connected with several well-known northern district families.
