Cause of his death was long and painful illness.
The following article was found in the Harbour Grace Standard - May 30, 1866. I am pretty sure that this would pertain to this Charles Pasher given the reference to 5 children, which would have been the number of Charles and Jemima's children who would have been alive on this date:
To the editor of The Standard:
Knowing that you are always glad to hear of, and to advocate the settlement of the people on the land, I have the pleasure to say that I recently paid a visit to some land on the north side of Lady Pond, occupied by a person of the name of Pasher, who certainly deserves great credit for his perseverance in the cultivation thereof. It is now only but a month ago since he commenced, and now he has erected thereon a house and has got a considerable quantity of land under cultivation. This land which is of a very good description of about three miles from town, and is a fine situation. The exertions of Mr. Pasher are all the more creditable to him since he has to walk out to his work in town early in the morning and return every evening, and judging by his undaunted perseverance I think he bids fair to be a second Ruby and I think he will meet with a Ruby's reward.
But, Mr. Editor, how grateful it would be to him to receive assistance, though even small, from the Government, particularly as he has an industrious wife and five children. At all events, I firmly believe, that assistance in this way would be a great encouragement to people. It is all very well to talk about granting a bonus to the cultivator of the land, but the fact is that assistance must be afforded to help the people to settle upon and cultivate the land.
Hoping these few remarks may be of some use.
I am, yours, &c., OBSERVER
