Still another old Carterton pioneer has passed away in the person of Mv Charles Henry Zabell, whose death occurred on Tuesday night. The late Mr Zabell, whose age was seventy-three years, was born at Dantzig in the year 1832, and from there went to Aberdeen and on to New Zealand. The vessel in which he sailed was the "Princess of Fife," and touched at Port Chalmers in 1852. He went to Auckland during the Maori War, and also spent some time in the Waikato district, and was in company with Sergeant Nolan when that officer was shot while carrying despatches. He visited the Shotover and Gabriel Gully gold diggings, and soon after was married at Waihi. From there he came on to the Wairarapa, and after a short stay went to Napier, from which place he returned to the "Wairarapa, and engaged in the bridge building trade, some of his work being still in evidence over the Waingawa, Taueru and Ruamahunga rivers, and one at Castlepoint. The late Mr Zabell purchased land on the banks of the Mangatarere river, Belvedere, and endured all the hardships of the early days. He leaves a widow, four daughters and one son (all married), and a number of grand-children to mourn their loss.
