"On Monday about 12.30, while sinking post holes at the Ingham Electrical Authority Limited new Power House, Mr. A. E. Hancock, a middle aged man, dropped dead. The body was discovered later, but life was extinct, and as the deceased had been suffering from heart trouble it was surmised that death was due to heart failure. The deceased was a widower, his wife having predeceased him some few months ago. He is survived by a grown up family of one daughter, Miss N. Hancock and two sons, Messrs. J. Hancock (Macknade), and A. Hancock (Ingham)." - from the Townsville Daily Bulletin 19 Nov 1930 (
