Cons 5795/1883 Estate of Alice McCormick
An Inquest was held on 2 August 1883 into the death of Alice (Mc) Cormick, widow, who died and was believed to be Intestate with no relatives in WA. She was accidentally burnt to death on the 16th July 1883.
Her house was situated in a right of way between Howick and Goderich Streets, Perth. Smoke was seen pouring from the roof and when entry was gained the house was full of smoke with a fire burning in the front room. Alice was found in the bedroom lying across a box filled with shavings and feathers badly burned around her legs and feet. She was found to be dead on her arrival at hospital. She was a poor feeble woman and had been ailing for some time; it was thought that she had been sitting in front of the fire when her skirt had caught fire. Sergeant Troy made an inventory of her personal and household effects which were sold for a total £5.10.9. Interesting one item was a sewing machine which sold for £1.4.0. It was said that she had one son who had left the Colony some months previously
