Le Cree, Charles


Otago Witness 1 July 1903, Page 52
 A travelling tinker named Charles Le Cree, better known as "Peg- leg," was found dead on the Winchester road, near Geraldine, Canterbury, on Friday night. When found the body was warm, and there was a cut on each side of the forehead. At the inquest on Saturday it was stated that a vehicle without lights had passed along the road shortly before the body was found. The jury returned an open verdict that deceased was found dead, but there was nothing to show the cause of death. Deceased was supposed to be about 84 years of age, and was known on the roads from one end of the colony to the other. He was a Frenchman, had been in New Zealand for over 30 years, and is said to have seen service in the Crimean and Maori wars.
