Warrick's Grave

SLSA B-74511

Above is the headstone of Alexander Warrick's grave site at Wirraminna Station.
'the grave behind shearing shed near track to 3 mile well'. According to a later resident at Wirraminna Station, 'Alexander (the great) was the Manager of Wirraminna when he died and was apparently a very popular man. The station hands were complaing that the water was unfit from a particular source to drink and of course he said; 'rubbish you little pussycats'. He then drank it and died'. A death notice in the South Australian Register, Saturday, April 15, 1882, reads 'WARRICK.- On the 5th April, at Green's Station, Wirrawinna, Port Augusta, of dysentery, Alexander George Warwick, aged 36 years'.
