Just before Christmas in 1859 John and his brother James were among a party in horses and carts going to the gold fields which camped outside the Weatherboard Inn at Blackheath to shelter from an approaching storm. John and another man were struck by lightning and killed. The bolt also killed another man and thirteen horses but James was unhurt. The tragedy left Mary at home with a month old baby and two other children aged 4 and 2.
