Inscription in Proximity
Dr. Samuel Wilson

Dr. Samuel Wilson died aged 39 years from heart disease. 

Samuel was found dead by his groom a short distance from his home in Bass. His horse had come home without him while he was out attending a patient at Powlett River. 

Dr. Wilson must have been much loved by the community for them to contribute so generously to the cost of his headstone.
