In Memoriam

Johannes Christian Kadow

Beloved son of M. A. Kadow

Died from foul air, Temple Bar
August 12, 1903,
Aged 22½ years

No one heard the sweep of the coming wings, and no one saw the dark death angels flight ;
We only knew that one from out our midst had passed for evermore from mortal sight.

In the midst of life we are in death.

Erected to the memory of Joe, by mother, brothers and fellow employees of Stuarts Creek Station.
