3. Geoffrey W Hartshorn - Born in 1907 in Tumut - Died in 1914 in Tumut - aged 7 years. - (Ref- NSW BDM 7494/1914). - Newspaper Report - A sudden death under sad circumstances occurred at Tumut Hospital on Sunday night. Last Tuesday the six year old son of Mr. Albert Hartshorn, of East Blowering, received a knock on one of its knees.

The child did not complain, and was put to bed on Saturday night apparently well. Sometime about midnight its parents were alarmed at the screams of their little one, who could not, however, explain what was the trouble. The patient was brought into Drs. Browne and Clouston on Sunday afternoon and died that night.

Tetanus had set in as a result of the knock on the knee. It is a significant matter that Mrs. Magennis, of Yass, who was severely injured in the same locality while motoring from the Yarrangobilly Caves to Tumut, developed tetanus.

It may be there is something lurking about the soil there that gives rise to the lockjaw. The remains of the little one were interred in the new cemetery yesterday afternoon, Mr. Jas Elphick being the funeral director and Rev. Ross Edwards officiated at the grave. - (Ref- The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser (NSW : 1903 - 1925)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 19 May 1914 Page 2).

- MARRIAGE - MISSING BRIDEGROOM - DRUGGED AND ROBBED. A REMARKABLE STORY. - Drugged, robbed, and deserted miles from the town where his prospective bride wab waiting at the church for her bridegroom elect! This is the story told by Harold Hartshorn, aged 22, whoso marriage to Miss Nelly Frost, set down for Saturday last, failed to take place because of the disappearance of the young man.

Dazed and footsore, . Hartshorn returned with his father on Wednesday night from Adelong. After a happy re-union with his fiancee, he told a sensational story of his adventures.

He was taken into Tumut about 12 miles from Brungle, last Friday, to get his wedding suit from Mr Pearce, the tailor. As the suit was not ready he told Mr Turnbull, a Brungle store keeper, in whose milk lorry he had expected to return to his home, not to wait.

Arranging to get the suit later, he bought a wedding ring, and later met some strangers. After a few minutes' chat, he went with the strangers to have a few drinks. He remembered nothing else until he woke up in Cootamundra with all his money - and the ring gone!

On Saturday he took the train to Wagga, and then, having no money to go farther, and being ashamed to face his people-more especially his promised bride - he started to walk to Adelong.

Meanwhile, his friends had assembled in the Presbyterian Church at Brungle, and the minister, Mr Walton, was waiting to perform the ceremony. Although the parents of both parties knew of Hartshorn's disappearance, they had no thought that he would not arrive in time. When he was definitely given up as lost Miss Frost collapsed, and had to be assisted to her feet by sympathetic and angry friends.

An anonymous letter received on Wednesday by Mrs Hartshorn, who was almost distracted, advised her to look in Adelong for her son. Mr Hartshorn, sen, set out for Adelong, and late on Wednesday afternoon found the lost groom wandering the streets of Adelong, worn out with his amazing experiences. - (Ref - Singleton Argus (NSW : 1880 - 1954) (about) Previous issue Friday 1 February 1929 ).
