THE SCONE ADVOCATE - Friday Dec 5 1930
Mrs W A Wiseman

Many and genuine were the expressions of regret throughout the district when it was learned on Wednesday morning last, of the sudden passing, late the preceding night, of Mrs Wiseman, wife of Mr Wm. A Wiseman, of Scone, and a former well and favourably known Upper Hunter resident. It appears that the deceased lady had been in somewhat indifferent health for some time, yet her bright and at all times jovial disposition was never indicative of such. Not only was she an exemplary family head, but endowed as she was with a kindly nature, little wonder that she made so many friends, for she was friendliness personified. Within an hour or two of passing on the late Mrs Wiseman was actually enjoying herself with the members of her family, who were participating in parlour games. Collapsing shortly after retiring to bed, she was beyond human aid when discovered. A daughter of Mrs. and the late Mr James Pinkerton of " Puddledock ", the late Mrs Wiseman was, therefore, connected with one of the oldest and most widely known Upper Hunter families, and had resided at Ellerston for many years, only coming to town during quite recent date. The deceased, who was born at Gundy, 50 years ago, is survivied by her husband and six children, the later being : Messrs. Alex A, James G, John F, William E, Lindsay M and Miss Jean E Wiseman. The Funeral, which took place on Wednesday afternoon, was very largely attended, sympathising friends from all parts of the Upper Hunter and adjoining districts being present out of sympathy for the afflicted. Burial was made in St Lukes Church of England Cemetery. At the Church Rev. Canon Cadell, in refering to the sad event, offered condolence to the bereaved, whose Christian and fine motherly qual ities he said he was aware of during the time he has occasion to visit her while in hospital some time since. Hers was a beautiful character, her one though being for her home, her family, and those about her. She would be much missed by many outside her immediate family circle, concluded the Canon. Several beautiful floral tributes were in evidence.
On Wednesday Morning
Mr Alex Weidmann ( Mayor of Muswellbrook )
and Miss Davis ( daughter of Mr E R Davis ) were married in St Albans Church by Rev. Canon Regg.
THE SCONE ADVOCATE - Friday 11 Oct 1918
Mr Alex Weidmann
The death occured at Muswellbrook on Wednesday morning last, one of its best known and most respected public citizens, in the person of Mr Alex. Weidmann. The deceased who was 57 years of age, and a native of the town, where he had lived all of his life, had not latterly had the best of health, having been ill on and off for the past three or four years, neverthe less: his death was rather unexpected, and came as a great shock to numerous friends. The fatal illness was of only a couple of days duration, the immediate cause of death being Bright's disease. For the past 30 years, the late Mr Weidmann took a keen and active part in the public affairs of his own town, having been for many years a member of the local Municipal Council, and the occupant of the Mayoral chair for a couple of terms. He was also one of the active workers of the U H P and A Association, and a leading member of the local Beekeepers Association when that body flourished in Muswellbrook. He was also one of the founders and a leading member of the local M U branch of Oddfellows, and one of the pioneers of the Muswellbrook Coal - Mining Co and for sometime its Chairman. In all these positions he displayed, besides activity and keenness, considerable ability, and besides being a good citizen, husband and parent, he was a warm hearted friend. He is survived and mourned by a devoted wife and three children, a Brother ( Mr Albert Weidmann ), A Sister ( Mrs Thomas ), and another sister in Sydney. The Funeral, which took place yesterday afternoon, was one of the most largely attended seen in Muswellbrook, the reamins being placed at rest in the Church of England Cemetery.
Mrs Emma Weidmann
The Funeral took place today, to the Church of England Cemetery of Mrs Emma Weidmann, relict of the late Alexander Weidmann. Death took place in Sydney. The late Mr A Weidmann, was one of the early founders of the Muswellbrook Coal Co Ltd. The Late Mrs Weidmann had resided in Sydney for many years. She leaves a Son ( Rufus of Dartbrook ), and a daughter.
THE SCONE ADVOCATE - Friday 1 Feb 1918
Mr and Mrs Alex Weidmann, well - known and highly respected residents of Muswellbrook, had the misfortune to have their young son, Alexander, aged 5 years, killed in Sydney on Monday afternoon last. The family had been spending a holiday with some of their people in Darlinghurst, and the boy, while crossing Oxford St, was run down by a Motor Car. One of the wheels passed over the boys chest. He was picked up and taken to St Vincents Hospital, but died before reaching there. The remains were brought to Muswellbrook - to where the family were just about to return - and were interred in the Church of England Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon. The Coffin ( says the " Mercury " Correspondent ) was covered by beautiful wreaths, and carried by members of the Oddfellows Lodge, who marched in Regalia, and not withstanding the rain, which, fell heavily at the time, was largely attended, and was a striking expression of sympathy with the bereaved family in their misfortune. -----------------------------------
