Poverty Bay Herald, 21 March 1906 DEATH OF GUARD GIBB
... Guard Gibb, a well known official of the local railway staff, died at the Gisborne hospital this morning, as the result of the accident he sustained last Saturday night (17 March). Whilst on top of a carriage affixing the lights for the late train, the deceased slipped and fell heavily on to the platform.

Bush Advocate, 3 July 1908 DEATH FROM EXPOSURE
... While the nightwatchman was doing his usual rounds at about 1.30 this morning, he came across a man lying on the pavement in front of the Junction Hotel, apparently in a senseless condition. Mr Coleman took immediate steps to have the man cared for, and summoned Dr Macallan, who had him conveyed to the hospital, where everything was done to restore him, but without success, death taking place at about 6.30 this morning. The man was named James Gibson, and he was aged 52 years. So far as we can learn, the deceased has been a resident of this district for over 20 years, and was for a considerable part of that time employed as a ploughman and horse-owner in the Pongaroa and coast districts. It is not known exactly when he came into town, but he was before the court on the 30th of June last, when he was convicted and discharged for drunkenness. Yesterday he had breakfast and dinner at the Mangatera Hotel, and came up into town during the afternoon. He returned to the hotel in a cab about tea time, and came back to town in a cab at about 7 o'clock. Constable Malone saw him after 10 o'clock, but nothing further is at present known of his movements from this time up to the point when he was found by the nightwatchman, and with a view to eliciting the facts an inquest will be held to-morrow morning, When the doctor first saw him the man was conscious, and told Dr Macallan that he had intended to go home, but lay down to have a sleep. When asked where his home was, he pointed to the opposite side of Miller's Road, indicating one of the boarding-houses there. In Dr Macalla's opinion death was due to exposure

Bush Advocate, 7 September 1906 - KIRITAKI
... It is with much regret that I have this week to record the death of Mrs Clark, senr., who passed away at the residence of her eldest son, Mr John Clark, on the night of the 5th, at the age of 75 years. The poor lady had been ill for so long and suffered so much pain that though we grieve to lose her, her death cannot be looked upon as other than a happy release from severe suffering, as she had not even the relief of unconsciousness to allay the pain and weariness of her last illness. She leaves a family of six grown up sons and daughters to mourn their loss, three of whom, Mr John Clark, Mrs Mortensen and Mrs Philp are residents of Kiritaki. The others are Mr A. Clark, who resides in Dannevirke, Mr Malcolm Clark, of Kawhia, and a married daughter in New York. The funeral is to take place on Saturday. On account of the sad occurrence the management committee decided to postpone the concert, which was to have been held on Friday night, until Monday, the 10th September
Bush Advocate, 10 September 1906 - KIRITAKI
... The death of the late Mrs Clark cast quite a gloom over our district, and in consequence it was considered advisable to postpone the concert, which was to have been held on Friday evening until Monday as a mark of respect to the family of the deceased lady. It is hoped therefore that those having already bought tickets will be so kind as to present them on Monday evening, when the original programme will be presented. As will be seen from a perusal of the programme in Mr Prior's window, several of Dannevirke's favourite amateurs have kindly consented to assist, and there are besides items by our best local talent. To conclude there will be a most amusing farce, in which those taking part have been at much pains to make themselves perfect, and afterwards a dance will be held and refreshments provided, so that if the weather holds good we hope to have a crowded house.

Dominion, 28 September 1918 A link with the very early days of Victoria has been severed by the death at Martinborough on September 15, at the age of 92 years, of Mrs Elizabeth Coveney. Seventy-seven years ago, at the age of fifteen, the deceased, with her parents (Mr and Mrs John Lowther), arrived at Melbourne in the ship Alexander. Married at nineteen, the late Mrs Coveney, with her husband (the late Mr George Coveney) spent many years in the Geelong and Bungaree districts. Here many thrilling encounters were experienced with the aboriginal natives. She came to New Zealand in 1885, where, with the exception of one son, the family has since resided. The deceased's husband predeceased her by some thirty years.
Of nine children, six are still living. There are also fourteen grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Henry Davis Williams (Taranaki) (Alice Lowther Coveney)
Robert Thomas SADD (Dunedin) (Anna Maria Lowther Coveney)
Fred McAllum (Martinborough) (Florence Coveney)

... A man named G. Cowan, about 35 years, went bathing in the Manawatu River. Not returning, a search was made for the body, which was found this morning
... On Friday morning last (28 Dec 1901) a man named G. Cowan, who was lodging at Petersen's boarding house, went to the Manawatu river for a swim, and as he did not return information was given to the police. A search was made but without result, until Mr Drinkwater junr, and another who were fishing in the Manawatu river, yesterday discovered Cowan's clothes on the banks of the river. From this it was evident that Cowan must have been drowned, but no trace of the body could be found until this morning, when Sergeant Stagpool and Constable Baker, having received information that it was believed the body had been seen in the river, went out early and discovered it stranded in shallow water. The body was taken into town, and is now in a room at Mr Baddeley's hotel (Junction Hotel). The deceased was about 30 or 35 years of age.
The deceased, so far as is known, has no relatives here, but it is believed that some reside in Otago and that a brother lives at Greymouth.
The members of the Loyal Dannevirke Lodge of Oddfellows are requested to meet at 2.30 p.m. to-morrow to attend the funeral of the late George Cowan, who was a member of the Lodge

Bush Advocate, 8 January 1907
... We regret to record the fact to-day that Mr John Crist's little girl, who was severely scalded yesterday morning, died from the effects of her injuries at 5.30 last night. The accident occurred very simply, as from the evidence submitted at the inquest this morning it appears that while Mrs Crist was scrubbing the verandah her two children were playing at the other end of it. She left her work for a moment or two to go round to the back to get the hose with which to hose the verandah down, as the soap and water were drying too quickly in the sun. Before going she cautioned the children not to go near the water as it was hot, but as it had been out of the copper for some time and she had been using it on part of the verandah she had no idea that it was hot enough to scald them. While she was away she heard the child scream, and when she returned she found he lying in the passage at the front door with her clothes wet about the back and neck. She at once picked her up and removed her clothes, when she found the body considerably scalded. Dr Macallan was at once called in and applied the necessary remedies, but the child died later on in the day.
An inquest was held at the parents' residence this morning, before the District Coroner and the following jury:- Messrs T. Bain, J. Neagle, J. Cruickshank, J. B. Lloyd, J. Spencer and R. Pattison. The evidence of Dr Macallan and Mrs Crist was taken, when a verdict of accidental death was returned. The jury added a rider to their verdict expressing their sincere sympathy with Mr and Mrs Crist in their bereavement, and this expression of condolence was conveyed to the parents by the Coroner

Bush Advocate, 16 March 1909 KIRITAKI - It is with very great regret that I have this week to chronicle the serious illness of Mrs Peter Anderson. For some time past Mrs Anderson has been in indifferent health, and at last consulted a doctor who at once advised her removal to the hospital. Some inward growth is feared, but whether of the nature of an abscess or some more serious trouble canot yet be determined. The many firneds of the family will unite in hoping for the patient's complete restoration to health
Bush Advocate, 21 April 1909 KIRITAKI - It is with very great regret that I have to record the death of Mrs P. Anderson, which took place at her residence in Kiritaki on Tuesday night, after an illness of several months duration. All that skill could devise or love perform was done to combat the disease, but it was of no avail, and now we can only offer our sincere sympathy to the bereaved relatives in their grief. Of a most unselfish and happy disposition, the late Mrs Anderson will be sorely missed by both relatives and friends, but it is comforting to know that her end was peace, that death came to her not as "the king of terrors," but as one opening the door into that life where suffering and sorrow are not, and there are no more tears
