On this day …….. 27th of December 1914
Mr Alexander Henderson, 73 years of age, the oldest resident of Glenora, has met his death in peculiar circumstances. He spent Christmas with his nephew, Mr Malcolm M’Lean, and left for his home some two miles, distant shortly after 6 pm on the 27th of December. On December 29th Mr Henderson’s hat and a parcel were found on a lonely road hear the State school. Search parties were organised, and in the afternoon Mr. Henderson was found entangled in a wire fence, and unconscious. He had been in that position for about 50 hours. It is assumed that he was overcome by sudden weakness, and unable to extricate himself from the wire. He was removed to his home and given medical attention, but died early following morning.
