A few Burials and possible burials at Pine Creek Cemetery or those whom died at Pine Creek

 

Northern Territory Times & Gazette, Friday 3 June 1904

Country Items  31/5/1904

Frank Paterson, one of the wandering class so often met with n the Territory, and well known on all the mining fields here, has found a last resting place in Pine Creek

cemetery. He was prospecting in the vicinity of China Town when he caught a severe attack of fever and being quite destitute would probably have perished then but for

the kindness of Mrs Elliott who heard of his condition and gave him every attention. The extremely cold weather we have been having of late, however, was too much for

him. Pneumonia supervened and he died after being unconscious for three days.

Estate of Alfred Candy of Pine Creek, miner, died at Pine Creek on 30th July 1910

 

Northern territory Time and Gazette, Thursday 5 April 1917

In the Matter of the Administration and Probate Act 1891

Estate of James Stevens, Miner, of Pine Creek, died at Pine Creek on the 27 September 1910

 

Northern territory Time & Gazette, Tuesday 4 October 1927

Death-On the 29th day of September at his residence Pine Creek, Henry Emil Schunke, the dearly beloved husband of Jessie Cameron Schunke

aged 67 years and 9 months.  A patient sufferer gone to rest

 

Death of Mr Schunke

The passing away at Pine Creek on Thursday afternoon of H E Schunke makes another gap in the rapidly diminishing band of early day Territory pioneers.

The news of the loss of this genial old resident will be received with general regret. The late Mr Schunke arrived from South Australia, his native state, in the far back

days-some where in the 70’s or 80’s. At that time mining was in full swing at Pine Creek and the adjacent fields and hopes ran high. In that inland town, after some

vicissitudes, the deceased made his permanent home, and there for many years he played a leading and energetic part as blacksmith and wheelwright and general

storekeeper &c. He possessed an intimate knowledge of the many mining ventures in Pine Creek and district and up to the last he was optimistic as to the great future

awaiting that field when capital improved up to date methods and sane management are given a fair spin in combination in the development of its rich gold reefs and other

potential mineral wealth. General sympathy will be felt for Mrs Schunke who played a prominent part in Red Cross work and other patriotic activities during the war and

has always taken a lively and helpful interest in the social life of Pine Creek. A large number of residents attended the funeral of the deceased at the Pine Creek cemetery,

the funeral service in the absence of a minister, being conducted by M C Turner.

 

Northern Territory Times & Gazette,  Tuesday 1 September 1931

Obituary – Edward Dowling Jnr.

We regret to report the death of Edward Dowling, Jnr, son of Mr & Mrs Dowling of Pine Creek. The boy who was 17 years of age had been ailing for some time

with fever and was brought down to the hospital on Saturdays train. Dr Cook went up to Adelaide River and met the patient there and the driver and fireman of the train

brought her in an hour earlier than usual, in the hope that their efforts would help to save the boys life but their efforts were in vain for he died at 7am on the Sunday

morning. The body was taken to Pine Creek on Sunday night and buried there on the Monday morning. To the parents and relatives of the lad the Times extends its

deepest sympathy.

The Canberra Times, Wednesday 6 March 1935

Tragic Sequence-Three Violent Deaths in the North

Within four months of arriving in the Northern territory, three men who left Mt Isa together towards the end of last year have lost their lives.

The first to die was J B Hourigan who was crushed by a motor car when it got out of control near Pine Creek. John Samuels was second. He was shot at Pine Creek

in the early hours of December 5. A Man has been arrested with the murder. The third to die was Tasman Paterson, a railway worker, who was fatally injured at the

weekend when a rail motor struck a bullet on the line not far from Pine Creek.
