Dropped Dead. Sad Episode at Rylstone. Mr. James Gately, of Dabee, Rylstone, one of the oldest residents of that district, dropped dead on Thursday last. The old gentleman was standing speaking to Mr. James Morrison. His horse, which was attached to a sulky, began to move off. Mr. Gately ran to stop the animal, and then got into the sulky. Just as he sat down Mr. Morrison heard a sigh and saw his friend fall forward. Medical assistance was secured, but life was found to be extinct. Only a few minutes before the sad occurrence the deceased had remarked to Mr. Morrison that he felt in splendid health. Deceased was a very old and respected resident, and the news of his death will come as a shock to many. To the sorrowing relatives we extend our sympathy. Mudgee Guardian, Monday 11 May 1914, p. 2.

Death of Mrs. M. Sheridan. Death has laid its harrowing hand heavily on the district residents within the last few months, the latest to pass away being Mrs. M. Sheridan, of Glen Lee, Narrango. The deceased lady had been in indifferent health for some time, and about ten days before death a severe form of influenza attacked her, which she was unable to shake off, and being of an advanced age she weakened very quickly. The family were called to the bedside, and despite all that medical care and nursing could do, Mrs. Sheridan succumbed to the attack and passed away at 8 o'clock on Wednesday morning. The deceased outlived her late husband by a number of years. She was the daughter of the late Mr. Dewey, of Growee, and a sister of Messrs. H. and G. Dewey, of that place. She and the late Mr. M. Sheridan settled at Glen Lee about 30 years ago, where they, by frugality and hard work created a comfortable home stead which has enabled them to leave to their children a comfortable competency. The late Mrs. Sheridan is survived by seven children, two daughters and five sons. The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon, the cortege moving from Glen Lee at half-past one. A long procession of relatives and friends followed the remains to their last resting place, the last sad rites being performed by Father Corbett, the parish priest (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 20 June 1918, page 25).
