HAWERA & NORMANBY STAR 13 November 1899 KAPONGA - It is with sorrow that I have to record the death of Mr H. Avery, which occurred at Pahiatua last week. He was the second son of our worthy townsman.
Just entering into manhood, endowed with good qualities, a favourite with his associates, he had a brilliant career before him as an athlete; but, unfortunately, death has stepped in and cut him off in the bud of life.
Mr Avery has the sincere sympathy of the district in his bereavement. The Rev. A. W. Compton, of the Anglican Church, read the funeral service. The coffin was literally covered with wreaths
