Obituary

QUEENSCLIFFE, July 18. On Monday evening, July 11, another old colonist, Mr. Henry Snelling, died at his residence, Shoal Bay, after a short illness. Like other old colonists who arrived in the early forties Mr. Snelling and his wife had to face many difficulties. Soon after arriving in 1840 they took up sections at Stepney, Dry Creek, and the Black Forest, where the deceased went into farming. Mr. Snelling afterwards had a large wheat store in Currie-Street. When the Victorian diggings broke out in 1851 he went to the rush, but soon returned and moved to Rapid Bay, and again engaged in farming, but he soon left there and came to Kangaroo Island, where he took up a lot of country at Middle River. He started sheep-farming, and continued it till two years ago, when his health began to break up, and he removed into Shoal Bay so as to be near his three sons. His remains were interred in the Kingscote Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon, and the funeral was largely attended. Amongst those around the grave were Mr. G. Snelling, Mr. and Mrs. A. Snelling, Mr. and Mrs. B. Snelling, Mr. J. Turner, Mr. J. W. Daw, Mr. R. Chapman, Mr. C. Price, Mr. A. Daw, Mr. J. Florance, Mr. C. Toseland, Mr. G. Turner, Mr. S. Buck, and Mr. Whittle. Mr. Partridge read the Church service, and the funeral arrangements were in Mr. R. Cook's charge.
