Birth: 1893
Death: Jan. 2, 1909
Queensland, Australia

"A double drowning case occurred on Saturday afternoon in the river at Lowood (Q.). A number of young people had been holding a picnic, and several, including Dorothy Ellen Bound, aged 16 years, went to bathe. Miss Bound was the last to leave the water. She got into difficulties, and called for assistance. Stephen Flewell-Smith, aged 17 years, a son of Colonel Flewell-Smith, of Lowood, jumped in fully dressed, but before he could reach the girl he sank and was drowned. Several others went to the assistance of Miss Bound, and one of them succeeded in bringing her within a couple of yards of the shore, when she struggled, and breaking away, sank, and was drowned. The bodies were recovered and buried in the Lowood Cemetery. The funeral was largely attended. A volley was fired over Flewell-Smith's grave by his military comrades." [Clarence and Richmond Examiner (Grafton, NSW) dated Tuesday, 5 January, 1909, page 5.]
