Witnessed events

  • They took care of Charles Taylor Fleming during his illness in October 1936. His obituary in The Orange Leader later reported that "when Mr Fleming was about to embark with his wife upon a Tasman crossing to visit relatives in New Zealand, his health failed and he was admitted to hospital, where it was found he suffered from a grave malady of the throat. So began a long period of great trial for the sufferer and his family.
    "Since that time Mr Fleming suffered very greatly, and the hardships of his illness were shared by his devoted wife and daughter Irene..."
    "Periodic visits to Sydney for treatment of a severe nature were borne courageously by the sick man and his welfare was the constant concern of shire councillors, fellow members of his lodge, sportsmen with whom he had mingled in football circles and on the bowling green, and even by citizens who knew him only in business.".2
