Biography

William Henry MEREDITH was born in 1945. He died on 18 Sep 1948, at age ~3.1
William Henry Meredith died in a tragic accident, aged 3. This was reported in the Irish Independent under the headline “Tragedy Ended Friendship” as follows:
“THE story of a mutual attachment between a man and a child, which ended in the death of the child, was told at an inquest held in the City Morgue, Dublin, before Dr. MacErlean, City Coroner, on William Meredith, aged 3, of Ballymote, Glenealy, Ashtord, who died in St. Laurence's Hospital, on September 18. Laurence Doolan, Glenealy, said he was harvesting corn with a trac- lor and trailer on the farm of Henry Meredith, father of deceased. There was a strong attachment between himself and the child, who accompanied him at every opportunity. On this occasion William was sitting on the tool-box of the tractor which witness was driving. It gathered speed on a steep incline, and when it failed to respond to the brakes he swerved to the left. The tractor began to heel over and, grabbing the child, witness jumped. As he did so, the trailer struck him on the heart and back. After he had fallen, he saw the child lying on its face some feet from him. He picked it up and started to run uphill, but collapsed. He was unconscious for 24 hours and spent six weeks in hospital. The Coroner returned a verdict of accidental death and exonerated the driver.”.
