Henry William's story

Henry William Dadswell, the fifth child of Thomas William and Helena (Scheer) Dadswell, was born on 19 February 1865 at Pleasant Creek (now Stawell), where the family was then living.

Little is known about his life, but he was with his family when they shifted to Ledcourt Crossing (now known as Dadswells Bridge). Henry would have been educated at the school located within the family's hotel. On 12 July 1877 when he was aged 12, he died at Dimboola, which was about 70km from the family home. His death certificate stated he had been ill from tonsillitis for three days. He was buried the same day at Dimboola Cemetery.
