Death of William Marshall

MARSHALL. -On the 31st December, 1916, at Geelong, William Marshall, late of Ballarat, in his 88th year; a colonist of 64 years.1

Ballarat Resident's Tragic Death.

Advice was received by the Ballarat City Police yesterday that what is believed to be the body of William Marshall had been found floating in the water near the Western Beach at Geelong. The deceased, who was 87 years, was a well-known Ballarat resident and is the father of Mr J. Marshall, watchmaker, of Sturt street, who has been requested to proceed to Geelong to identify the remains. Evidence of identification of the corpse was gained from a card which was in the coat pocket of deceased, which was addressed to him by a relative. No particulars have yet been gleaned by the police as to how the deceased came to be in the water.2

When swimming horses on the western beach, Geelong, on Sunday morning, Thomas Peterson, of O'Connell street, Geelong West, found the body of a man, floating in the water. He brought the body to the shore, and informed Constable O'Gorman, who removed it to the morgue. There was nothing in the pockets to show who the man was. He was about 70 years of age. A new year's card, with the words, "From 450 Rathdown street, Carlton," was found on the body. The police then made inquiries, and it is believed that the man's name was William Marshall, who resided with his wife and daughters at Perth, Ozone avenue, Aspendale. As portion of "The Argus" of Saturday was found in the coat pocket, it is believed that the man was only a few hours in the water.3
