John McKenzie was whaling at Doubtful Island Bay, Cape Riche and Cape Arid and the Sherratt brothers were out around Rabbit Island and in King George Sound. One season John McKenzie had a bad mishap at Doubtful Island Bay and had two men, Abraham Appleyard and John Rason were killed by a small whale. McKenzie was knocked overboard, but scrambled back into the boat. Both Appleyard and Rason were buried on Doubtful Island Bay. That was in 1868. In those days Captain Fisher was McKenzie’s chief headsman.
