William Jamieson, n.d.

William Jamieson, n.d.

A painful sensation was caused in Yarrawonga on Saturday evening, when the news was circulated that Mr William Jamieson had expired with startling suddenness on a block of land adjoining his business premises. A subsequent medical examination, showed that death was due to cerebral hemorrhage and embolism. The late Mr Jamieson was 53 years of age, and was a native of Kingston, in the Ballarat district. He was married in Benalla some thirty years ago, and after being engaged in business at Tungamah for some years, went to Yarrawonga, where he carried on a blacksmithing establishment up to the time of his death. By his cheery and genial disposition he gained a host of friends, who were deeply grieved to hear of his untimely end. Deceased leaves a widow, two daughters (Mrs W. R. Clark, of Burramine, and Miss A. Jamieson, of Yarrawonga) and three sons (Mr W. J. Jamieson, of Henty, and Messrs D. and N. Jamieson, of Walla Walla. The remains were interred in the Yarrawonga cemetery on Monday last, the Rev. Robert Burn Mearns (Presbyterian) conducting the burial service.
