Dorcas Peden

Obituary:
Another of Lilydale’s old and respected identities passed away last Monday morning in the person of Mrs Peden. Known to most inhabitants of the town, this elderly lady, aged 83 years, was regarded with affection and esteem, being possessed of a kindly and generous disposition. For the last three months he accustomed good health seemed to be on the wane. ....she expired peacefully being lovingly ministered to the last by her family.

Mr John Peden – a resident of Lilydale for many years died at Lilydale hospital on July 14 at the age of 65.

Obituary:
A Shocking fatality young boy electrocuted When the electric current cut off peremptorily at about 5.50 last Friday evening, most people accepted the happening philosophically, as such occurrences are by no means rare in Lilydale. Stark tragedy, however was lurking in the beyond, and a few moments later it became known that Robert Macalister Pender, a boy of 4 years and 10 months, the youngest son of Mr and Mrs R.M. Pender, of Silvan, had been electrocuted.

The boy had been playing in the yard of the crown Hotel, a few doors from his mother’s shop with Patricia Morris, the six-year-old daughter of Mr and Mrs E.F. Morris. In their play the children had climbed onto the roof of the washhouse, but, being notice by the cook, were told to get down. This they did, but a few moments later they had got up on the roof again, and the boy had contrived to come into contact with an uninsulated portion of the live wire attached to the roof of the building. The alarm was quickly given, and medical aid and the police were summoned. Meanwhile Mr F. Benyan, who had been working on the premises, procured a pair of rubber gloves from the fire station, and Mr Morris detached the unfortunate boy from the wire. Dr McMahon arrived on the scene in quick time, and immediately the boy was freed he began an endeavour to restore life by resuscitation methods.

A little later he was joined by Dr Short, and the two, with Mrs Short, made a valiant effort to bring life into the young boy’s body again. For about two hours they worked incessantly, but to no avail. This tragedy is the culminating point of a series of misfortunes experienced by Mr and Mrs Pender, and heartfelt sympathy is felt on all sides. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon at the Lilydale cemetery, the Revs. H.G. White (Lilydale) and A.J. White (Croydon) conducted the last rites of the church of England at the graveside. [Lilydale Express 15-08-1930 pg1]
Inquest:
J.B. Cathcart J.P. conducted the inquest and heard evidence from Mr Pender, Patricia Morris, the Crown Hotel cook-general May Martin, Fred Benyan, State Electricity Commission’s Frederick Edwards, Dr Frank Fitzroy McMahon and Mounted-constable Eldridge. The verdict was: That death was the result of shock through coming in contact with a live electric wire, no blame being attachable to anybody. [Lilydale Express 15-08-1930 pg 1]
