hello tfarr and welcome to Family Tree Circles,

that wasn't Frederick Martini was it? the one who accidently shot himself in May 1899 at Stafford, West Coast, while he was cleaning his gun.
Luckily he only lost one eye
Funny thing is I remember him because of Frederick Martini, the inventor of the Martini Rifle who died 2 years earlier in 1897 but also in May. This Frederick may have been related (1832-1897) as he was an engineer in Frauenfeld, Switzerland
