McGrath, James (1845–1930)

The death occurred at the Lidcombe Hospital on June 8th, of Mr. James McGrath, at the age of 84, after a few days' illness. He came to Grenfell as a young man in the early days, following the occupation of a book clerk in various shops. Later he moved to Closeburn, Young Road, thence to Parkes, where his wife and one grown-up son Harry, predeceased him about 28 years ago. The remainder of his days were spent at Redfern. Several children died in infancy, only one member now remaining in the person of Mr. A. J. C. McGrath, to whom our heartfelt sympathy goes, and, who unfortunately is away in England in the time of this sad event. He leaves four sisters and three brothers (Mesdames J. A. Simpson (Grenfell), Symonds, Southcott, Singleton (Sydney); Messrs. Albert John (Grenfell), George and Walter (Sydney). The remains were interred in the Rookwood cemetery alongside his nephew Frank McGrath. Rev. George Holland (nephew also) officiated.
