The Argus (Melbourne, Victoria) Mon 22 Jan 1906 Page 6 DEATH BY DROWNING. OUTTRIM. Saturday. - Mr. Alexander Thomson, J.P., on Thursday last held a magisterial inquiry into the death of Mrs. G. Balcombe, whose body was found on the previous day in a well at Archie's Creek. At about 4a.m. deceased awakened her children, whom she wished "Good-bye", saying that she was going to the well. The children then fell asleep, but finding their mother absent when they rose, the eldest boy, nine years of age, acquainted his father, whose employment at a farm two miles away necessitated his sleeping there. Mr. A. E. Taylor, M.B., who examined the body, gave the cause of death as asphyxia, from drowning.
