• Thomas CAISLEY
died 2 March 1900 aged 27
buried Lot 296, Block PRO, Section PRO
Ohinemuri Gazette Wednesday 7 March 1900 - A distressing accident occurred at the New Zealand Talisman Gold Mining Company's mine, Karangahake, at about half-past ten o'clock on Friday night (2nd) which resulted in the death of a young man named Thomas Caisley. It appears that deceased was working in the stopes at the back of No 3 level, his mate being a man named Hubert, who was engaged working at a point about 20ft away from Caisley. Hubert heard a fall of mullock, and called to Caisley to know what was the matter. Upon receiving no reply he proceeded to the spot where Caisley had been working, and found him partly covered with the debris, his head and legs being the only part of his body visible. Hubert was alone at the time, so he worked hard to retrieve his mate, the time occupied in doing so being about twenty minutes. Caisley, upon being extricated, showed no signs of life, so his mate proceeded to no 2 level and procured assistance. The victim of the accident was then conveyed on a stretcher to the Tramway Hotel, where Dr Buckby was soon in attendance, but could only pronounce life extinct. A coroner's inquest was held on Saturday, before Mr Forrest, coroner, and a jury of six, of whom Mr Clarke was chosen foreman. The evidence adduced showed clearly that the accident could not have been foreseen, and that the fall of mullock occurred in what was considered a very safe portion of the mine. The stoping in question was being done by contract, and deceased was one of the employees of the contractors. Dr Buckby's evidence indicated that deceased had been suffocated, his head having been jammed against the wall. The jury returned a verdict to the effect that deceased was accidentally killed, and that no blame was attributable to anyone

Thames Star 15 January 1901 - The monthly meeting of the Charitable Aid Board was held last night. An account was forwarded by Dr Buckby for £2 12s 6d for professional services to Mr Crutchfield, who had since died.

Mr Saunders said Crutchfield was working for the Ohinemuri Council at the time he was taken ill and Dr Buckby attended him, expecting to get his fee. The doctor had made a bad debt. It was decided to inform Dr Buckby that the Board could not recognise the claim.

25 January 1900 - DICKEY - On January 25, 1900, at his father's residence, Mount Pleasant, Paeroa, James Henry, third and dearly beloved son of Nathaniel and Isabel Dickey; aged 16 years and 3 months. Funeral will leave his father's residence on Sunday, at 2.30 p.m.
... This morning a serious accident happened to Jim Dickey, son of Mr N. Dickey, the well-known horse owner at Paeroa. Young Dickey was exercising Swiftfoot on the Paeroa racecourse, when the animal commenced rearing and plunging and at last fell back with the boy, who had his head split open
... A very sad accident happened at the Paeroa Racecourse on Wednesday morning, about half-past four, when two horses, the property of Mr N. Dickey, were having a trial. The horses were Lady Dash (ridden by W. Dickey) and Swiftfoot (ridden by Jim Dickey). When coming round the bottom corner Jim Dickey came off Swiftfoot, his skull being severly injured, thus causing unconsciousness. No one knows exactly how the accident happened, as Lady Dash was in front, but it is surmised that the horse stumbled and the boy was precipitated to the ground. Dr Smith was sent for, but from the first could hold out no hope. Dr Forbes also came from Waihi and Dr Cooper from Te Aroha, but they could do nothing for the little fellow, who passed away on Thursday morning at seven o'clock. The greatest sympathy is felt for the relatives of the deceased in their sad affliction and the funeral to-morrow afternoon at two o'clock will doubtless be largely attended. The boy at the time of his death was only sixteen years of age. An inquest was held on Thursday afternoon before Mr W. Forrest, Coroner, and a jury of six (of which Mr J. Martin was foreman), when a verdict of "Accidental Death" was returned

Thames Star, 25 Aug 1900 Mrs Donnelly (who died on Wednesday evening in a vehicle on the Paeroa-Waihi road) and her husband were two of the earliest residents of Waihi. Mrs Donnelly has been ailing for some considerable time past and a fortnight ago she was taken to Te Aroha to see if a course of treatment at the baths would restore her. She, however, gradually got worse, and as she had a desire to get home, she was brought down by rail to Paeroa on Wednesday afternoon. The stretcher upon which she was lying was then placed in a covered vehicle and she was driven along the road to Waihi very quietly.

24 May 1899 It is with feelings of the most sincere regret that we have to record the death of Mr Patrick Edward Ryan, of Karangahake, who passed away at eleven o'clock on Monday morning (22nd). It appears that Mr Ryan had been suffering from insomnia and that on Sunday evening he took a dose of laudanum. Later on the evening he took a second, and apparently larger dose, to make himself sleep. On Monday morning he was found in his bed still in a heavy sleep, and although the service of Drs Buckby and Forbes were secured, all efforts were unavailing, and Mr Ryan died at about eleven o'clock.
The greatest sympathy is felt with the bereaved relations, as the deceased was known and respected by all classes of the community. He was a single man, and but 25 years of age. Deceased had been a prominent runner and footballer in this disctict for some years back, and has played three-quarter in the Karangahake football team for some considerable time past. Last year he played in the Ohinemuri representative team. The deceased was the third son of Mr P. Ryan, of Waitekauri, and was employed with his brother in keeping the Tramway Hotel at Karangahake. He has a sister and brother at Waitekauri, the latter being the licensee of the Waitekaru Hotel (this was William 'Bill' Earle Ryan who died in 1902 aged 37 & his wife Kate ran the Hotel until her remarriage in 1904 to Peter Crosby and he then became the licensee)
... The inquest was held at Karangahake yesteday afternoon, before Mr W. Forrest, Coroner and a jury of six, of whom Mr M. D. Regan was chosen foreman. After hearing the evidence, the jury returned a verdict as follows:- "That the deceased Patrick Edward Ryan died at Tramway Hotel, Karangahake, on Monday, 22nd May 1899, at or about 10.45 a.m., from the effects of an overdose of laudanum administered as an opiate, without due knowledge as to safe amount, and that no blame is attachable to Mr Morton, chemist's assistant
... The match between Paeroa and Karangahake, which was to take place on Saturday next, has been postponed owing to the death of 'Paddy' Ryan, and the senior fixture for that day will be Paeroa v Waitekauri, at Waitekauri

Her decease will be deeply regretted by the numerous friends she has left behind, and the deepest sympathy is felt for the bereaved husband and family
9 Nov 1898 The funeral of the late Mrs Thos. Shaw took place last Sunday, and the very large concourse of friends from Thames, Te Aroha, Waihi and other parts of this district who followed her remains to their last resting place testified to the high esteem in which the deceased had been held, as also the deep sympahty felt for the bereaved family. The procession, which was one of the largest that we have seen in Paeroa, extending over a mile long, left the late residence of deceased shortly after 3 p.m. and proceeded as far as the Roman Catholic Chapel, where the coffin was taken in and the service read by the Rev Father Hackett in a very impressive manner.

... A sad drowning accident occurred here this evening, as a result of which a girl named Lottie Thorp, aged 14 years (sic), eldest daughter of Mr A. J. Thorp, lost her life. It appears that the girl was bathing with several other children and that they got in a boat to pull across to a sand bank. One of the smaller children, thinking they had reached it, stepped out into deep water. The little girl courageously jumped in to save it, and succeeded in doing so, but at the same time the boat capsized and she was drawn under, sinking before assistance could arrive. Much sympathy is felt for the bereaved parents, especially as it is only last week that a younger daughter
(Elsie Madeline Thorp), was nearly killed through accidently eating matches. The body was recovered about midnight near the spot where the unfortunate girl was drowned. Many persons joined in the work searching the river banks
... An inquest was held yesterday afternoon before a jury, of which Mr Jos. Nathan was foreman, to enquire into circumstances attending the death of the young girl Lottie Thorp, who was drowned in the Ohinemuri River.

hi mitches, who were your ancestors??

by mitches1829 on 2013-02-14 19:37:19

hi ngiare?
Please excuse the spelling errors, must have been having a Youngtimers moment.
My grt grt grandparents William Henry Mitchell and Mary Jane Parrott, they had 11 children (possibly a couple more), Most of them resided in the Northlands, Nz.
I am finding that nz bdm death index is rather difficult to usedue to lack of information included. It is a bit hit and miss. So I hope that I might find some useful clues in the cemetery indexes that you posted the link to.
Yes Mary Jane Mitchell, nz star athlete, carver, painter extraordinaire was his grand daughter.
I am still looking for the descendants of Samual alfred Mitchell, Raupo and John Mitchell of Dargaville, and paeroa. Malcolm (Bill) Mitchell b. 1867 Aus.
Thank you again. sharene
