some of the unusual names on the Wesport cemetery database 1867-1873
George ABER aged 20 (miner)
buried: 1 December 1868 at Orowaiti cemetery
BDM also has George Aber aged 20 (only Aber surname listed on BDM)
Grey River Argus, 5 December 1868 A miner named George Aber has been drowned at the Ohiki River, Buller District. The Westport Times says that his brother, Edward Aber, reached town on Tuesday evening, 1st instant. Both brothers had been working for some time up the Lyell river. The canoe in which the deceased was crossing is described as having been a most miserable apology for a boat, scarcely deserving the name of boat or canoe. The crossing-place, in anything like ordinary weather, is a very safe one, though the boat at no time was capable of holding two persons with any degree of safety. The only paddle in use also was a make-shift, a short-handled shovel, which was used by the boatman, Fred Moore. We understand the boatmen are subsidised by receiving a free license, which is certainly equal to whatever outlay it would be to have a good boat provided for such a crossing. Either there should be some other kind of subsidy or some penalty enforced on obtaining such subsidy; but these are matters too often only remedied by serious accidents of this kind.
NOTES I believe this was George Albert Aber, born in 1841 at Mint Street, Bermondsey, 9th of 12 children to William ABER (formerly A'Bear, see link) & Hannah BAKER, as on this extensive family tree site ABER. They also seem to think this was 'their' George, the only trouble being an incorrect age. Click all links to discover more

Joseph PUFFLETT aged 27 (born Essex, England)
buried: 19 August 1870 at Orowaiti cemetery

BDM has Joseph PUFFLETT aged 27 (only 1 other recorded death of this spelling)
Colonist, 9 September 1870 On August 29, at the Caledonia Terrace, Joseph Pufflett was killed through the fall of a large mass of earth in his claim. Deceased's brother, Robert Pufflett, was buried up to the throat, and was very much crushed and bruised
The Westport Times informs us that a melancholy and fatal accident occurred near Caledonia Terrace on the 29th ult., resulting in the death of a miner named Joseph Pufflett, and the serious injury of his brother Robert Pufflett. From what we can gather, there were three men in the claim, which is situate on a spur leading to Donovan's Creek, and within a short distance of Caledonia Terrace. The party were working by ground-sluicing, the two brothers being engaged at the face, while a third attended to the boxes some distance away. The deceased, when the accident occurred, had charge of the hose, and the elder with a shovel was easing down the face, when a large mass of earth gave way unexpectedly, completely burying the deceased, and covering the survivor to the throat. The third mate, owing to the position of the boxes, was not in view of the accident, which fortunately witnessed by Peter Gray and another man, who immediately made for the scene, and who succeeded, after half an hour's labor, in extricating the surviving brother. Joseph Pufflett, when discovered, was found to be dead, and, but for the timely assistance, Robert must have met with a similar fate, on man, while the work of extrication proceeded, being fully engaged keeping him free from the debris that continued to fall. The survivor is very much crushed and bruised, and it was deemed expedient by Dr Thorpe, who was quickly in attendance, not to remove him
William David RUSZ aged 26
buried: 8 April 1873 at Charleston cemetery
reason: accidentally drowned, Incumbent of St Marks Church, Charleston
BDM has nothing recorded on any event for this name
Colonist, 11 April 1873 Another name has just been added to the terrible list of persons who have lost their lives by drowning in that of the Rev W. D. Rusz, who lost his life while bathing in the surf at Charleston, in company with Mr Montague Browne, editor of the Charleston Herald. This gentleman was educated at King's College, London and was associated with the Bishop of Nelson in the very active labors in the east of London, which preceded their arrival here. We can well believe that the sudden loss of one whom he had so carefully trained, and then intimately connected with, almost from childhood, will be a sad blow to his Lordship now absent in England, and now the less so that this is the second of his protegees who has been drowned within the space of a few months, the Rev Mr Guskin having met his death in crossing the Aorere river (the funeral was attended by 400 persons)
Henry TIBBY aged 47 (from England - Publican)

buried: 18 August 1872 at Orowaiti cemetery
reason: drowned, Lyell
BDM has Romana ZALA aged 17
Grey River Argus, 26 August 1872 On Sunday evening last, a melancholy accident took place below the Lyell Junction, resulting in the death by drowning of Roseno Zala and James Edmondson (database has Edminson), both residents of Lyell. Zala was a cousin of the prospector of the same name who opened the now famous reef in that district. The accident occurred by the canoe being swamped on the rip of a fall and it adds greatly to the distressing character of the affliction that one at least, if not both lives would have been saved had a boar been available. On the intelligence reaching Antonio Zala at the reef on Sunday evening, all the workmen in the Alpine Company volunteered to search for the bodies, but up to Tuesday morning their efforts had been unsuccessful. The deceased Zala leaves a wife and children in Europe. Edmondson is well known on the Coast, having been in the employ of Mr McBeath, draper, Hokitia and Messrs Thomas and McBeach, Charleston. His friends are resident in Lancashire
NOTES a week earlier ... 'Highly favorable news has come to hand from the Lyell district. Affairs in the Little Wonder and Excelsior claims are progressing most satisfactorily. A report is current that in Zala's claim, twenty pounds weight of nearly pure gold has been obtained (a value in NZ$ as I write this of $449,218)

DEATH: COLLINS A young woman named Julia Collins employed at the Upokongaro Hotel, was drowned this afternoon while bathing in the river
Taranaki Herald, 8 March 1888
Between 3 and 4 o'clock on Tuesday afternoon a young woman named Julia Collins, aged 19 from Turakina, cook at Rowe's Hotel, in company with her sister (Mrs Middlemas (sic, Middlemiss)) and Miss Nettie Rowlands, went to bathe in the Upokongaro creek, near the mouth of the Mangawhere Stream. It is only lately that she learnt to swim, but evidently feeling confidence in her own powers, Miss Collins swam into the Wanganui River. The current is pretty strong about there and appearing to find herself out of her depth, when a short distance out, she suddenly threw up her arms and sank. Henry McKay, barman of the hotel, who was at the time at the back, heard a woman's cry and went out, but then could see nothing. By Mr Rowe's direction, be at once rode off and gave information to the police. When he left, a number of men were doing all they could by diving to recover the body and it was eventually found about an hour and a half afterwards. Miss Collins had bathed in the same place several times before. The deceased acted as cook at Kennedy's Hotel, where her sister, Mrs Middlemas, was also housekeeper. An inquest is to be held at Upokongaro this afternoon.
* At the inquest a witness testified that the depth of the water was nearly 26 feet and he state that he dived with the intention of recovering the body but found that the water was so disturbed and discoloured that he had to desist. The verdict was accidental drowning
* BDM has her as 21

FATAL ACCIDENT AT UPOKONGARO A young man named George Albert Caines met with an accident at Upokongaro last night, from the effects of which he died to-day after lingering some eleven hours. It appears that the unfortunate man was going home with a companion named Reid, with whose father he was employed, from a lime light exhibition, which was given at Kennedy's last night, when he met with the accident. Proceeding to strike a match to light his pipe, the flare, or the noise caused by igniting the the match, caused the animal he was riding to bolt. Reid followed him as quickly as possible and after going about 300 yards found Caines lying on the road in an unconscious condition. All efforts towards bringing him round proved of no avail, the unfortunate man dying this morning from concussion of the brain
George was 21
parents: Albert Caines (1839-1874) & Alice Atkinson (1849-). His mother remarried in Wanganui on 24 Feb 1877 to David Allcott

TRAGEDY AT KAIWHAIKI SENSATIONAL EVIDENCE
MAN CAUSED HIS OWN DEATH
An inquest touching the circumstances surrounding the death of a roadman named Bert Jones, who was drowned in the river at Kaiwaiki Pah on Tuesday, Feb 10th, was held before the District Coroner, Mr W. Kerr, yesterday afternoon.
Evidence was tendered by Timothy Hogan to the effect that deceased was employed by Mr McCullam, road contractor. At 9 a.m. of the 10th inst., witness and the deceased walked to the Upokongaro Hotel. There they stayed till noon and had four or five long beers. When they left they took three bottles of beer and a bottle of whisky. They had some of this on the way to their camp. They reached a point opposite to their camp at about 4.45 p.m. and deceased called across the river to a boy named Stanley McCullam and asked him to bring a canoe to convey witness and deceased across. When the boy and the canoe arrived, witness said he would not fo across in it for he thought it was unsafe. When deceased got in he commenced rocking the canoe and the boy told him to stop. Witness then went away to get some Maori to pull him across.
The boy referred to, Stanley McCullum, gave evidence corroborating that of the previous witness up to the point when Hogan said he went away. Then, the boy said, Jones commenced to rock the canoe and it sank. The canoe came up upside down and Jones held on to it. Witness swam ashore and ran for help. When he came back in a Maori canoe with some natives, the deceased had sunk.
The camp cook, Joseph Smith, said he was standing on the camp side of the river and witnessed the whole incident. In addition to the previous given, he said that deceased hung on to the canoe till it had floated for two chains down the river.
Constable Barry gave evidence as to finding the body about a mile above the Aramoho bridge on Sunday. He said he had made inquiries at the Upokongaro Hotel and he was quite satisfied that the men left there sober. A half-filled bottle of whisky was found on the body when it was picked up. The Coroner returned the following verdict "Accidentally drowned, through his own recklessness while under the influence of drink"
St Mary's Anglican Church, Upokongaro 1870s
Looking over the Wanganui River towards the settlement
use the ZOOM OPTION
UPOKONGARO (more correctly, Ūpokongaro) is a settlement 12km upriver from Wanganui (now Whanganui) in the Makirikiri Valley. Settled by Europeans in the 1860s, it was an important ferry crossing and riverboat stop. A spectacular discovery of moa bones was made in the area in the 1930s.
The village's name in Māori, ūpoko (head) ngaro (hidden), refers to a story of how chief's daughter Ira-nga-rangi arranged to have her head removed upon her death and hidden by relatives, who feared it might be desecrated by enemies. Supposedly the preserved head was hidden in a cave on the banks of the Ūpokongaro Stream north of the settlement, from which the village takes its name.
At the time of European contact, both Ūpokongaro and adjacent settlements Waipakura and Kukuta were home to the Ngāti Patutokotoko hapū of the iwi Te Āti Haunui-a-Pāpārangi. Ngāti Iringirangi and Nga Paerangi are also noted as being present.
The fortified hilltop pā at Ūpokongaro was called Opiu; during the tense times of the 1840s, Opiu was pulled down and abandoned.
Waipakura, south of Ūpokongaro, was one of a number of native reserves set aside in the 1848 Deed of Sale; some of it was leased to settlers in the 1860s.
Ūpokongaro was described as a "small pā" in 1865 and Māori settlement persisted until at least the 1880s.
The pā site at Opiu was used as a refuge for settlers' wives and children in 1862, when there were fears of Hau Hau war parties, and was later turned into a redoubt.
In 1866, settler John Kennedy built a hotel and a store (later the post office); during the 1870s and '80s, the local name for Ūpokongaro was "Kennedy's". A school was built in 1870, known from 1873–1879 as the North Makirikiri or "River Bank" school.
The schoolroom functioned for Anglican services in the mid 1870s, but in 1877 St Mary's Anglican Church was built. Designed by local architect Edward Morgan and built by John Randal, St Mary's is distinctive in having a spire with a triangular cross-section, on a four-sided steeple. Its stained glass window was installed in 1879, in memory of Archibald Montgomery, a young Upokongaro man lost in the sinking of the clipper Avalanche in the English Channel just before the church was completed.
St Mary's is the oldest church in the Whanganui District on its original site.
In the 1930s, thousands of moa bones were recovered from mud springs in the Upokongaro Valley at Makirikiri by a Wanganui Museum expedition. Life-sized concrete moa sculptures commemorating this can be seen on the main road outside the Upokongaro Cafe.
Evening Post, 6 July 1878
A sad and fatal accident occurred at Upokongaro near Wanganui on Monday last, of which the following account is given by the Herald:- A shoemaker named Philip Rowland (born 1824, Marylebone, m Emma Beaumont), while crossing the yard at the back of Kennedy's Hotel, passed a horse, left standing and tied to the fence; and in passing, patted the horse's flank. The animal in kicking out struck him in the lower abdomen, inflicting terrible injuries and such suffering as could only have been relieved by instant death, The agonised groans of the unfortunate man brought assistance and the poor fellow was placed upon a couch. A messenger dispatched with all speed to town soon returned with Dr Earle, who strove ineffectually to afford even a temporary relief. Nothing could be done to save the injured man, who, in the most terrible pain, lingered for some hours and expired in paroxysms of agony.

Twenty had been intended to dance a war-dance in his honor, but the natives considered themselves shabbily treated and the preparations fell through
Wanganui Herald, 31 Oct 1881
SUPREME COURT (Before His Honor the Chief Justice)
The hearing of the case of Georgetti v The Wangaehi Highway Board was resumed at 10 o'clock this morning, the following additional witnesses for the defendants being called:
Arthur Filmer (1856-1920, Land Agent, m Henrietta Green (1859-1906). They had 10 children, 7 born in Wanganui, the others in USA. They died in California), a resident in the Upokongaro valley from 1877 to the present time, gave evidence as to the existence of a gate across "Barton's line" place there by Mr Georgetti. On each side of the Matatara branch line there were some poplar posts recently put in, but whether as trees or as a protection for the fence witness could not say. The paddock adjoining this branch line was never used as a garden and the pure-bred bull alluded to by previous witnesses was now grazing in it. The nearest Maori settlement was an old pah, about a mile and a half up the Valley, but this was the other side of the creek from the road.
By Mr Fitzherbert - Mr Georgetti's place had been rather overstocked of late and he could manage his cattle just as well after as before the road was laid off. The damage done to the Matatara branch line in April last, so far as the gaps are concerned, would be covered by 20s. The gap in the thorn fence was made before April.
Re-examined by Mr Hutchison - Witness was not particularly interested in Mr Barton's line, but merely wanted a road up the valley.
Roland Garrett, engineer and surveyor, formerly acting for the Board, deposed that he had at different times found some of the pegs of Barton's line. The gaps made in Mr Georgetti's fences were on the Matatara branch line. Mr Georgetti was well aware of the direction this line was to take. The land along Barton's line and its branches had never been occupied by native buildings or cultivations.
J. I. Gerse (Sheep Inspector) (John Ivo Gerse 1822-1899, native of Belgium) stated that in April last, the day after the alleged breaking down of fences, Mr Georgetti mustered his sheep without difficulty and returned the numbers at 1,800. On the 31st May he made a formal return of 1,700.
William Patrick Campbell, manager for three years past of Dr Grace's property in the Upokongaro Valley, stated that in April last he went with Mr Reid and Mr Cullinane to open up Barton 's line. They broke through two fences only, one on the main road and the other on the Matarata branch. There was an imperfect thorn fence diagonally across the branch line, but there was no occasion to break it down, as there were gaps in it. No other damage, beyond cutting down the two fences, was done to Mr Georgetti or his son, that the pure-bred bull (alleged to have escaped through the opening up of the line) had been in the habit of breaking out of the paddock. When witness was on the property in April last it had a board over its eyes to prevent its breaking out. Witness had since seen the bull in the same paddock it occupied in April last.
Cross-examined by Mr Fitzherbert - The stoppage of the culverts through cutting down fences might have caused Georgetti's land to be flooded and the gaps in the fence might have enabled cattle to escape on to the general run/ Witness's employer (Dr Grace) ws anxious that the Mangaone branch should be opened up, but as to Barton's line as a whole, he did not care which direction the road went. provided that one was made.
John Cullinane, a settler in the Matatara Valley (and the defendant in the second action brought by Mr Georgetti) corroborated the last witness as to the thorn fence being full of gaps when Mr Read and the others (including witness) went up in April last to open Barton's line. Mr Georgetti had since mended the fence, all but one gap.
Cross-examined by Mr Fitzherbert; Witness had done some work on the cutting across the creek since the alleged trespass and expected the Board to pay for it.
The mid-day adjournment then took place. The case will last until a late hour to-day, if not to-morrow.
Otago Daily Times, 11 Jan 1883
WELLINGTON. The Hon, Mr Bryce (Hon. john Bryce) received a few days ago, a communication from Tapatahi, a chief in the King country, in which he stated that he had seen Mr Bryce's letter to Wahanui. Tapatahi says that it was Tawhiao who with held his consent to the proposals embodied in the letter. In his opinion the arrangements with regard to roads and railways and other matters were in a satisfactory position. Tapatahi further asks that fair and liberal compensation should be given to Natives. He though that people who had committed crimes in that district should be allowed to go at large and an amnesty granted them. Tawhiao should be taken in charge and treated as one would a loving child. In conclusion, the chief mentions that the Natives are favourable to a Lands Court at Mokau and to the survey of land between Paraninihi and Mokau.
In replying to the chief, Mr Bryce says that his last words to Tawhio had gone to Wahanui and they had been rejected. The construction of roads and railways through the Maori county would be of immense benefit alike to Natives and Europeans. As regarded the reference to an amnesty being granted, it was a question as to whether those who had committed crimes were now acting properly and if they are or are not likely to commit crimes in future. The proposal for the survey was a good one and it was hoped that before any lengthened period the roads and railways would be gone on with. It is understood that Mr Bryce will leave for Kawhia forwards the end of the month, for the purpose of arranging for the opening of that port.
WANGANUI - Tawhiao, with nearly 200 King Natives and accompanied by Topia, the great Taupo chief, reached Upokongaro, seven miles from here, this morning. The whole party is expected in Wanganui to-morrow. The Natives of this district have made great preparations and are very enthusiastic. No preparations for reception have been arranged by Europeans
Hawke's Bay Herald, 2 May 1884
Am extensive fire occurred last night at Upokongaro, about seven miles from Wanganui, the residence of Mr Spencer Peel (Spencer William 1858-1913) being burnt to the ground. Nothing was saved except a valuable diamond in a gold bracelet, which was afterwards recovered from the debris and a gun which cost 60 guineas at Home. The origin of the fire is not known as Mr and Mrs Peel (Adelaide Cowper 1862-1955) were absent for the evening, having taken every precaution against fire before leaving. The insurance is £700 in the Colonial office, £200 being on the house, £200 on the furniture and £200 on the other contents. The house was an old one and the insurance about covers its value but the loss on the contents is estimated to be much above the insurances, as Mr Peel had a large amount of jewellery and other valuable property in the place
