Johnston, Alexander (1805–1833)

Died—At Windsor, on the 27th July last, Mr. Alexander Johnstone, of Clydesdale, Hunter's River, fourth son of Mr. Andrew Johnston of Portland Head, one of the earliest settlers of the present century. Mr. Johnston was distinguished for his meek and placid disposition, and for the warmth of his affections. He bore with christian resignation a painful illness of long standing, contracted by incautiously exposing himself to cold and fatigue in a journey to Liverpool Plains, from the effects of which, though naturally of a strong and robust constitution, he never completely recovered. Mr. Johnstone is greatly regretted by a numerous circle of friends and acquaintances on Hunter's River and the Hawkesbury, of which district he was a Native.
