Crockett, John (1834–1918)

As the years roll on fewer and fewer the old people naturally become, for it hath been ordained that all men shall die, and in every moment that passeth there is the fulfilment of the decree. On Monday there passed away at Gundy Mr. John Crockett, who had been a resident of the Upper Hunter for over 50 years. He was a member of a family well-known in Maitland in the years that have fled, and lived for a long period in Muswellbrook and neighbourhood. For many years he was an active and esteemed member of the Upper Hunter P. and A. Association and filled the position of manager of St. Heliers estate, the property of the family of the late Mr. Malcolm Campbell who had been one of Muswellbrook's most enterprising and progressive citizens. The deceased, who was of a retiring disposition, possessed sterling qualities, and during his long residence here was much respected. Amongst his surviving relatives are his sisters Mrs. S. C. Campbell, of St. Heliers, and Mrs. J. W. Humphries of Muswellbrook, his son-in-law, Mr. Wm. Campbell, of Gundy, and his nephew, Mr. J. M. Campbell of Gelston. The funeral of the deceased took place on Tuesday. The interment was in the Presbyterian cemetery, Muswellbrook, and the burial service was conducted by the Rev. J. Leggett, assisted by the Rev. P. Norman, of Scone.
