1846, 18 November: The following article was published in the Maitland Mercury and Hunter River General Advertiser, p2: “SUDDEN DEATHS. – It is our melancholy duty to record the fearful fact of two sudden deaths having occurred on Saturday last; one being that of Thomas Mack, a labouring man, in the employment of Mr. Reynolds, of Louth Park, and the other that of William Walters, in the employment of Mr. Nowlan of Hunter’s Hill.

“The cases were nearly similar, both occurring after dinner, of which meal both men partook heartily, and in seeming health. Both men were likewise employed haymaking, and were seized suddenly while at work in the field; the only difference in the cases being that Walters died instantaneously, whilst Mack lingered for six hours in a state of insensibility.

“In both cases death was the result of apoplexy. An inquest was held on the body of Walters on Sunday, and a verdict of ‘died by the visitation of God’ returned. In the case of Mack, an inquiry was commenced before the acting police magistrate on Monday, and terminated yesterday, when a verdict to a similar effect was returned. We are sorry to hear that the latter has left a widow and several young children in very destitute circumstances.”
