11/2/1826: Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser:  On Monday last, and inquest was held, at the estate of Mount Pleasant, in the district of Evan, on the body of Joseph Jordan, who was found drowned in a pond near the road, leading from Mount Pleasant to South Creek.

The poor man had been driving a loaded bullock-cart, and was seen on the road on the Thursday afternoon; in consequence of the water having risen with the late rains, the bush at the place where he was found was wholly inundated, and it is supposed, that not knowing the road, he went in to examine the depth of the water previous to driving his team through, and that deviating from the path, he had fallen into the pond.  On the Friday evening following, the body was discovered, at which time the flowing of the waters had in some degree abated, and the poor beasts with their load had lain down in the stream nearly exhausted.—-The verdict of the Jury was Accidental Death.

Joseph was 27 years old.
