TIPLER - MAKETU DROWNING FATALITY - RECOVERY OF BODY - Word was received by Constable Garvey on Sunday morning that the body, of the late Mr W. R. Tipler, who was accidentally drowned on Thursday last, had been discovered at 8 o'clock by Mr T. Best and two Maoris who had been patrolling the beach. The discovery was made at what is known as the Point, about a mile and a half from Maketu, the body, having been washed up amongst the rocks. Accompanied by the Coroner (Mr Lally) and Dr MacFarlane, Constable Garvey at once proceeded to Maketu. Under his supervision the body was removed from where it lay, to the township. This proved a most arduous task, the stretcher bearers having to ascend a cliff some five hundred feet high. At 2 o'clock an enquiry was held by the Coroner into the circumstances surrounding the fatality. Frank Robar gave evidence that he accompanied Tipler on a fishing trip on the 25th of March, they left between 7 and 8 a.m., and fished till about 1.30, by which time they had caught about 10 dozen fish. A wave then came and filled the boat, and a second wave overturned it throwing both the men out. They clung to the boat for about a quarter of an hour, when Tipler said, "Better make for the shore." They both let go. Witness swam about a chain from' the boat, but as the tide was too strong and he was being carried out to sea, he swam back. He saw no sign of Tipler. He started to call out for help, and was rescued by a boat sent out by Mr McLaughlin. Evidence was given by Mr McLaughlin as to hearing cries for help and offering a Maori £2 to take his boat out to rescue Robar. Dr McFarlane gave evidence that in his opinion death was due to drowning, and Mr Best gave evidence as to the finding of the body. The finding of the Coroner was as follows -'That the said Robert Walter Tipler, on the 25th day of March, 1920, in the sea near Maketu, was accidentally drowned, no blame being attachable to anyone." The interment took place in the Te Puke Cemetery during the afternoon, the Rev. J. W. Chapman conducting the burial service. [Te Puke Times 26 March 1920, Page 2]

VERCOE - OBITUARY - MR HENRY VERCOE. At about 3.30 on Tuesday afternoon last there passed away pioneer settler of the district the person of Mr Henry Vercoe of Fairfield, No 2 Road, whose decease removes another of the few remaining links that connect the present with the past. The late Mr Vercoe was a native of Weybridge, Cornwall, where he was born in 1835. He arrived in New Zealand in 1852, being at that time 17 years of age, and settled at Mangere, where married in 1860. In 1877 he removed to Maketu and purchased the property known as the Matai Estate. This property later passed into the hands of the Bank of New Zealand, Mr Vercoe retaining the position of manager until about 25 years ago, when he took up a farm on No 2 Road. Here he had resided ever since. Of late years his health had been much impaired, and he had had many severe illnesses, so that his death was not unexpected. He leaves a widow, four sons, and four daughters, the former being Messrs H. A. and C. Vercoe, of No. 2 Road, Mr Fred Vercoe, of the Farmers' Auctioneering Company, Te Kuiti, and Mr J. L.Vercoe of Rangiuru and the latter Mesdames F. Bostock, E. W. and P. Boucher, and C Perring. The funeral took place yesterday' afternoon, and was largely attended. The Rev.

WILLIAMS We are being accustomed to hearing of the death at the front of those whom we would formerly see almost every day, but familiarity with the grim messsages does not lessen the sorrow of friends or assuage the grief of those bereayed, The latest to be afflicted by the ghastly war is Mr Richard Williams, who mourns the loss of his son "Dick," who was killed on March 27th. To him and to Mr Thorburn, who has also received news of the death of a brother we tender our sincere sympathy. [Te Puke Times , 19 April 1918, Page 2 and Bay Of Plenty Times, Volume XLVI, Issue 7002, 19 April 1918, Page 2] The late Sergt-Major Williams, whose death at the front was reported in our last issue, was one of the best-known and most highly respected men in this district - a man whose loss is deplored by all who knew him. That his sterling qualities and ability were recognised by his superior officers was evidenced by rapid promotion. Enlisting as a private, he rose step by step, until he sailed from New Zealand with the rank of Sergt-Major. At Home he passed his examination entitling him to retain this rank. Desirous, however, of joining the signalling corps, he resigned, and was on duty as a signaller when he met his death. Prior to joining the army, the deceased soldier, who was the second son of Mr. Richard Williams, was engaged in farming and flaxmilling pursuits, later on, with his partner James Geraghty, he built the Alliance Hall. No man who has left this district left behind a finer reputation than Dick Williams for sterling worth and integrity, and his loss is mourned by an exceptionally large circle of friends.
