The strange and tragic accident happened as the boys Father, Mr. Arthur Price, was driving his family to Barwick in a wagon. Mrs. Price and the children were riding in the wagon and according to reports of the mishap, a trace chain broke and Mr Price jumped out of the wagon to fix it. He is said to have been carrying a loaded pistol upside down in his hip pocket. As he leaped from the wagon, the pistol struck one of the wheels and was discharged, the bullet striking the child who was standing in the wagon.

Striking the little boy in the face, the bullet went through coming out the back of the head and causing instant death. The child was rushed to a doctor in Barwick who pronounced the boy dead

……
In Memory of Little Harry Price
In the year 1930 little Harry Price was born,
In the face of this little babe all the friends and relatives looked on,
When the little chap was three years old, somehow,
He was terribly injured by the hooking of their cow
When not more than a year had passed by,
Little Harry was practically burned to death by a fire,
After about two years of hard working and nursing the child,
Little Harry was restored back to his wanted health for a while.
And then last Saturday at the dawning of the day,
The angels took little Harry Price away.
