Brooker, James (1834–1907)

There has been quite an epidemic of pneumonia in this district of late, and several deaths from that complaint have been recorded. The latest is that of James Brooker, an old resident of these parts, who passed away at his residence, Gregadoo, on Tuesday last, after a brief illness. The cause of death was pneumonia, from which the old man, who was 72 years of age, had only been suffering for a brief period. A wife and grown-up family survive him. The funeral was largely attended on Wednesday afternoon, the interment taking place in the Anglican portion of the Wagga cemetery. The Rev. G. A. Carver administered the last sad rites of the Church of England at the graveside. Four grandsons of the deceased acted as pall-bearers. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Messrs. Hoye and Colbeck.
