Coady, James (Trooper) 1870
The Sydney Morning Herald Saturday 11th June, 1870 – Braidwood, Friday – Trooper Coady, yesterday met with an accident, which, it is feared, will prove fatal. When returning from Bell’s paddock, on duty, his horse fell and rolled over him, seriously injuring his spine. He is now lying in hospital. Coady is a single man.
Evening News Monday 13th June, 1870 – Braidwood, Saturday – Constable Coady, died last night from the effects of injuries sustained by his horse falling and rolling over him. Herald
The Goulburn Herald and Chronicle Wednesday 17th June, 1870 – Dreadful Accident – A very serious and distressing accident occurred to Constable James Coady, stationed at Braidwood, who was riding home from Jembaicumbene on Thursday last with Senior Constable Walsh, when his horse fell with him to the ground and rolled over him. It is supposed that the animal put his foot in a hole. Coady was so severely injured as to be left utterly insensible.
Senior Constable Walsh caught Coady’s horse and rode into town (a distance of about three miles), when Senior Constable Duffy sent out a horse and cart, and Coady was brought into town about eight o’clock in the evening.
DR Gentle was immediately called to attend upon him, but has very little hope of his recovery; his spine being broken in several places. Coady has not been long in Braidwood – about three months. He was formerly stationed at Cooma for about two years. The only relative he has in the colony is a brother stationed at Grafton, we are informed. On Friday the unfortunate young man showed no signs of improvement, and his recovery is considered almost impossible – Braidwood Despatch
(A telegram to SM Herald, dated Saturday, says: Constable Coady died last night from the effects of injuries sustained by his horse falling and rolling over him.)
