From https://www.maybole.org/notables/fergusson/sirjames.htm

A cable has been received saying that Sir James Fergusson, a former Governor of Bombay, was killed, having been buried alive in an earthquake in Jamaica. He greatly encouraged education in the Bombay Presidency. Before leaving for Jamaica he had accepted the Presidentship of the South Africa British Indian Committee. He was buried in Kingston with great honours.
[From Gujarati] Indian Opinion, 2-2-1907
