In February 1865 after the murder of Messrs Panter, Goldwyer and Harding by aborigines it was decided to send a party of five EPGs to Nichol Bay abord the Clarence Packet. The chosen men were reported as Isaac Davis, Edward Goodall, John Farrell, William Whittle and a man named as Jarvice. The only EPG named Jarvis arrived in WA well after this date. EPGs Joseph Barr and Edward Radford went to Roebuck Bay aboard the Kestrel in September 1865. In 1867, these six EPGs and two others EPGs William Purvis and John Byrne perished aboard the Emma a schooner lost in a cyclone and wrecked off the coast of Coral Bay with the loss of all on board. The EMMA left Port Walcott (near Point Sampson), and the last recorded sighting was a Nichol Bay when the ship stopped there on 31 January 1867. The Emma was last heard from on 3rd March 1867 on departing Port Walcott Western Australia.
