A settler named Thomas Askew, says the Woodville Examiner, who had a section and house in the settlement, died on Sunday night. Mr and Mrs Askew have been living at Ashhurst but deceased came to the settlement to prepare the way for their return.
Mr Goff who lives near, sent a child over for some vegetables and on her knocking at the door she heard groans and opened it, when deceased was found to be dying. He was attended to but died as above,
Deceased had been complaining of being unwell for sometime and a post mortem examination conducted by Dr Davemport revealed the fact that death resulted from cancer. He has four sons occupying responsible positions at Lyttelton

the SETTLERS cemetery - Dannevirke, New Zealand

The SETTLERS cemetery is also known as the Dannevirke Old Cemetery
It is in George St, Dannevirke in the Manawatu

Dannevirke meaning "Danish creation" or "Danes' work" is known for its Scandinavian heritage, which dates back to 1872 when 21 Danish and Norwegian families arrived at the port of Napier and built their initial settlement in a clearing of the Seventy Mile Bush.
Dannevirke for which the town was named is an extensive Viking-age fortification line which had a strong emotive symbolic role for 19th Century Danes, especially after the site had fallen into German hands in the German-Danish War of 1864 - a recent and very painful event for these settlers.

The settlement quickly earned the nickname of "sleeper town", as the town's purpose was to provide totara sleepers for the Napier - Wellington railway line. At one stage the area had 50 operating sawmills. After the native bush was cleared, the land was turned into pasture for grazing animals.

The town's cemeteries are of considerable importance historically, and the settlers' cemetery attracts many visitors
