Farlow, James (1820–1888)

In Mr. James Farlow, the Hawkesbury has lost an old native. Mr. Farlow breathed his last on Tuesday evening. He had been ill for about three weeks, suffering from inflammation of the lungs. Congestion of the brain followed, and carried him off. Mr. Farlow was born upon the farm at Freeman's Reach–where he died–68 years ago. His father before him was one of the pioneer agriculturalists of the district, and the son, who has now gone over to the great majority, followed the same occupation, being very successful in his undertaking. During the period of his illness, the deceased gentleman was under the care of Dr. Hozier, who did everything to relieve his patient, but without avail. Mr. Farlow leaves a wife and eight children–four daughters and four sons–to mourn their loss, the youngest of the family being 15 years. The funeral took place on Thursday, and was largely attended by friends and relatives. The remains were interred in the family vault in Wilberforce Church of England Cemetery.
