SCHINTLER, CHRISTIAN - Obituary from Tumut & Adelong Times 28 July 190586941

The late Mr Schintler was native of Hanover (Germany), and sailed for Australia in 1850. 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.

The death took place at his
residence, Adelong, shortly after 1
p.m. on Wednesday, of Mr. Christian
Schintler, at the advanced age of 74
years. Deceased was a native of
Hanover. He sailed from Germany
in 1850, for Adelaide. Shortly after
landing he went to seek his fortune
at the Bendigo diggings, Victoria,
but meeting with no luck, returned
to Adelaide. Later on the gold fever
again seized him and he proceeded to
Ovens, thence to Beechworth and on
to Adelong, where he settled down in
1858. He spent two years at Tum-
barumba with but varying luck, and
coming back to Adelong followed
mining pursuits until increasing years
compelled him to give it up for a less
vigorous occupation, when he be-
came an orchardist and fruit vendor.
Some time nfter his arrival at
Adelaide, he married Sophia Beeg-
ling, sister of Mr. William Beegling  
(father of Mr. C. W. Beegling, of  
Tumut) and by their union there was
an issue of 13 children, three of whom
died very young and one, George, who
was accidentally shot, predeceasing  
him. The surviving members of the
family are three sons (Charles, who    
lost his sight by an explosion in the
Great Victoria mine, Harry and Alfred)  
and six daughters (Mrs. Fred. Capel,
Mrs Jas. Elphick, Mrs. Jas. Dark of
Cambelltown, Mrs. Jno Burns of
Sydney, Mrs. Wm. Davis of Dapto,
and Mr. Chicaro of Sydney). About
18 months ago, while on a business
visit to Wagga he became ill, and on
consulting a doctor he was informed
that he must return home at once.
Upon returning he went to Sydney
and was under treatment for dropsy
which had developed in his system, but  
only temporary relief could be given.
He was soon obliged to take to his bed,
and after months of intense agony
death gave him a happy release from
his sufferings. He was ever an
honest, upright and conscientious
man and instilled his principles into
the minds of his family. All who
knew him can testify to his many
excellent attributes, and he was a
hard and constant worker, one whose
chief aim in life was to see his
'care' properly provided for. He
leaves behind a sorrowing wife and
the family before stated, who mourn
the loss of an affectionate husband
and an exemplary father. Our
sympathy goes out to them in their
sad bereavement.
