SCHINTLER, CHRISTIAN - Obituary from Tumut & Adelong Times 
28 July 1905
 
The late Mr Schintler was native of Hanover (Germany), and sailed for 
Australia in 1851. He departed from Bremen Germany on 5 June 1851 
on board the barque "Herder" and arrived in Australia on 21 September 
1851 at Adelaide SA. Also on board this ship was Sophie Beeglings 
brother and his family.
 
On landing at Adelaide he went into farming pursuits, but soon gave 
such up when the gold fever began to rage. In 1852 he did very well at
Bendigo, and then returned to South Australia, where he married 
Miss Sophie Beegling, sister to  Mr W Beegling of Goulbourn, and to 
Mrs H Farrington of Adelong. The Ovens, Beechworth and Yackandandah 
fields were afterwards visited by him and a fair amount of gold 
gathered. Adelong was reached in 1858, and with the exception of two 
years spent in alluvial digging at Tumbarumba, NSW, the deceased has 
resided in Adelong the whole time since. 
 
By his steady habits and untiring energetic thrift he secured a nice 
portion of land within a mile of the town, and erected a stone 
residence thereon. The deceased was a man of unassuming manners, 
quiet, affable and courteous. During the early years of his life he 
took an active interest in all matters having for their aim the good 
and welfare of the district, and he was very beneficient in charity. 
Deceased and his good wife reared a family of 13 children, four of whom
predeceased their father. The surviving members of the family are - 
Charles (who lost his eyesight from an explosion in the Great Victoria
Mine), Harry, Alfred Ernest, Mrs C Capel, Mrs James Elphick, Mrs J Dark
(Campbelltown), Mrs John Burns, Mrs Chicaro (Sydney) and Mrs W Davis 
(Dapto). The funeral took place on Friday afternoon and was largely 
attended. The coffin embelished with black and gold, was covered with 
beautiful wreaths, tokens of sympathy from many friends. The Reverend 
C Newton Moll read the burial service at the grave. Mr James Elphick 
was the undertaker, and the funeral arrangements were carried out in an
excellent manner.
