Death of Wife:
18/8/1857 Empire, Sydney:
Last week a person named Lindbeck reached Braidwood from the Tumut with a dray and pair of horses for the purpose of removing his mother and brother’s family to that quarter. The old lady proceeded to the burial ground to pay a last tribute of respect to the remains of her husband by planting a few evergreens and plucking the rank weeds which, from their luxuriance, marked the spot, little anticipating how soon she would herself lie beneath the same spot. About one o’clock they all left town full of hope, and had scarcely proceeded a mile when the poor woman was thrown off the dray and instantly killed, the wheel crushing her head. An inquest was held on the afternoon and in a few hours she was laid in the grave she had decorated so shortly before.
