    An article in the Murchison Times and Day Dawn Gazette dated 15 March, 1898, page 3 states a miner named Hugh Cameron was brought in to the Nannine Hospital from Abbotts with a fractured skull. He consequently died. He had been working in the Abbotts Gold Mine. The report was Tues 15th and he died on the 12th March, 1898. Wonder if he was buried at Abbotts.
