    • From the booklet by Jessie Alice Cameron, on the death of Hector Cameron: In the last few years of his life Hector Cameron "used to go to town once a week or sometimes on a fortnightly basis..." He would arrive at town, tend to his horses and do his shopping. "Later in the evening when he'd had enough scotch, he would reverse his travel mode... "On this particular trip Hector used a newly broken pair of good looking and well matched young horses. By the time he had arrived on the Yarrowich Range (the range between Armidale and Breelong) a severe electrical storm had developed. An old tree at the side of the road was struck by lightening and a good piece of splintered wood pierced Hector Cameron's head and killed him. His body was found not far from this lightening struck tree. "Pieces of buggy, flour, wire, sugar etc. were found along the trail for a mile or so but the two horses were never found."
