1 January 1875 - A most melancholy accident took place on Wednesday, 30th Dec., at Forest Hill. Mr William Young, settler at Hedgehope Stream, was employed during the day in burning some long flax near his homestead. Having been called away to attend to some duties at a little distance, Mr Young's eldest daughter, a little girl six years of age, seems to have gone to the place where the flax was still burning, and her clothing caught fire. Her cries attracted attention from the house, and her mother at once ran to the rescue, but was too late, the poor little creature's clothing being by that time almost entirely consumed. The services of Dr Yorath were speedily procured by Mr Young, who rode hard to town for the purpose, but the injuries received by the little girl were seen to be far too severe from the first to admit of any hope of saving her life, and she expired about 9 o'clock the same evening

NOTE
Because they had a son William in 1870 and another in 1879, there is a possibility that I have mixed 2 families. William Thomas Young may have been the trade unionist (1870-1953) who was born in Wellington to William Young & Jessie Dykes.
Your help appreciated
