Note:

The sudden death of Mr Jesse Ernest Sheather, which occurred at Foster on Friday night, December 29th, cast quiet a gloom over the village (says Wingham Chronicle). Mr Sheather went to Foster with his two sons, who recently purchased the sailing boat Nanarbine, which they intended to enter in the Foster regatta, after having competed with it at a Mungo Brush regatta. He was standing by the camp fire in front of the residential, conversing with friends, when he collapsed and fell, he died instantly.

The deceased was a resident of Tea Gardens. in the afternoon he complained of pains in the chest, which he attributed to an attack of indigestion, but did not take it seriously. Heart failure was the cause of death, for 24 years the late Mr. Sheather had been residing with his family at Tea Gardens. He was a man who took a very great interest in sailing, and could recall incidents connected with his pastime for many years back. For over 20 years he had been an umpire at regattas in the Port Stephens district, andlast year acted in a similar capacity for the Cape Hawke regatta. The committee had requested him to again act for the recent regatta, which he consented to do.

Mr Sheather was a fine type of a man, a keen cricketer, and general sport, and one who took a broad view of life generally. A native of Taree, where he was born 65 years ago, for many years he was engaged in the timber and fishing industry of Port Stephens district. His wife predeceased him by nine years, four sons and five daughters survive, theirn ames being, Mr Ernest Sheather, Newcastle, Messrs, Stephen, Arthur, and Everett Sheather, Tea Gardens, Mrs John Harris, Blakehurst, Sydney, Mrs John Squires, Wootton, Mrs William Phillips, Tea Gardens, Mrs Horace Brown, Taylors Arm, Nambucca River, and Miss Mona Sheather, Tea Gardens, The remains were taken to Tea Gardens and interred besides those of his late wife.
