HORATIO died 2 March 1894 aged 24
Evening Post, 2 March 1894 CARTERTON this day - A fatal accident occurred at Booth's sawmills yesterday afternoon. Horatio Groube, a driver, was pitched off a truck, and a wheel passed over his lower limbs near the middle. The poor fellow died while being carried home. The accident was caused by the horses bolting coming down the tramway incline. Deceased leaves a wife and one child, and it is feared the news will have an injurious effect on the wife, who is in a critical condition.

Frederick Groube, Jan 1900
The Wairarapa Star reports that a serious gun accident befell a young man named Frederick Groube, who, in company with two young men named Charles Low and Herbert Merewood, were out rabbit shooting on Mr Bunny's property at Gladstone the other evening. Groube, it appears, was in the act of shooting at a rabbit (the first shot he had fired) when the gun exploded and blew the breech clean away, a portion lodging in Groube's left wrist, and inflicting a terrible wound. The blood spurted out freely, for an artery had been cut. Groube's companions bandaged the unfortunate mans arm above the elbow to stop the bleeding. This proved effective, and owing to Low's and Merewood's presence of mind young Groube undoubtedly owes his life

Frederick Groube, 26 May 1914
At St Patrick's Church, Masterton, to-day, Mr F. Groube, fifth son of Mrs Groube, senior, of Carterton, and a well-known Wairarapa representative footballer, was married to Miss Nora Minihan, daughter of Mrs Minihan, of Reefton. The bride was charmingly dressed in a cream serge tailor made costume, with black hat relieved with cerise. The bridesmaid was Miss Jean Kelly, who wore a pretty blue tailor-made dress, with black hat relieved with scarlet. The bride and bridesmaids carried beautiful bouquets. Mr M. H. Robertson was best man, and the ceremony was performed by the Very Rev. Dean McKenna, V.C.
A reception was held subsequently at the residence of Mr J. Johnston, of Landsdowne, where the usual toasts were honoured, and felicitous speeches made.
Mr and Mrs Groube afterwards left for the South, where the honeymoon is to be spent

Frank Groube, Sep 1905
A cow belonging to Mr H. Rayner, Te Whiti, was yesterday in a critical condition through an attack of milk-fever. Everything possible was done for the animal which seemed past all hope of recovery. Mr Frank Groube, manager for Mr Rayner's Te Whiti factory, decided to try the experiment of pumping air into the udder by means of a bicycle pump. This was done once or twice, the air being subsequently expelled by manipulation of the teats as in the process of milking, and the result was most satisfactory, the cow being speedily restored to its normal condition

Kate Groube, June 1912
A pretty wedding was soleminised at St Mark's Church, Carterton, on Tuesday, when Miss Kate Victorine Maud Groube, grand-daughter of Mrs C. Groube, was married to Mr Claude James August, only son of Mr and Mrs J. H. August, Flaxlands, Waiohine. Two little pages, Miss Daphne Groube (cousin, Daphne Eveline, daughter of her brother Frank) and Master Morton Liddington, carried the bride's train. Miss Eve Udy, of Hukunui, and Miss Laurel Smith were bridesmaids. Mr Lionel Smith was best man, and Mr Fred Groube was groomsman

* Descendants of John Boulderson (1749-1831)
* Colonel George Bromley Boulderson Groube (1810-1878) (father of George above)
