Sue French has written in part:

"A family story says that William Joseph Lewis died by drowning in the Hastings River. It is told that a lady living on the northern side of the Hastings River was in urgent need of medicine. Because of heavy rain, the usual transportation could not get the medicine across the river. William Joseph Lewis offered to take it across on horseback. He was swept away. There was a Coroners inquest held at Long Flat and it was found that he died as a result of injuries received through a fall from his horse. In the inquest records he is noted as a small selector at Ellenboro."
