Australia / Re: Edwin Reuben CARPENTER of Ballarat Did he rob a bank?
« on: Sunday 17 March 19 04:46 GMT (UK)  »

Yeppen Yeppen Lagoon is on the South side of Rockhampton, the Capricorn Highway meets up with the Bruce Highway and heads into Rockhampton past the Yeppen Yeppen Lagoon. Only recently there have been major highway upgrades again to overcome the flooding from that low area.

The question we need to ask is what attracted Edwin to Rockhampton?

Hi,

A snippet from the Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser, Sat, 5th April 1862,  page 2.

Under the heading LATE STORM.

"The water at Yeppen Yeppen rose eighteen feet above its ordinary level.  The steam saw mills and dwelling house of Mr Carpenter were completely submerged"

Hi,

From a newspaper of the day Edwin imported his steam sawmill on the "Jenny Lind" in December 1861, he had a contract to supply timer on the Dawson Road at Yeppen Yeppen at Rockhampton.

Rockhampton Bulletin and Central Queensland Advertiser, Sat, 14th December 1861, page 4.

From the Coroner's Inquest looks like Thomas died of injuries after falling from a scaffold.
