Hughes, James Henry (1820–1886)

I regret to have to record the death of an old and much respected resident of this neighbourhood who passed away on Saturday, 10th instant. Mr. James Hughes, the gentleman to whom I refer, was a native of Richmond, on the Hawkesbury River, and, at the time of his decease, was in his sixty-fifth year. He was brother to the Rev. W. C. Hughes, Wesleyan minister, and was one of our oldest residents, having lived here for more than twenty years. He left a large family, five daughters being respectably married and settled in Ulmarra, and six being unmarried. Although the weather was very threatening, deceased was followed to his last resting place by a large number of old friends, who desired to personally testify to the esteem in which he was held. The service was performed by the Rev. Mr. Reeve.
