Our Gawler correspondent writes:—The death of Mrs. John McKinlay at her residence, Gawler East, on Sunday, brings back many memories. She was the daughter of the late Mr. James Pile, who was born at Beverley, Yorkshire, and came to South Australia in 1849. He was closely identified with the pastoral industry on the River Darling. Miss Pile married the late Mr. John McKinlay in 1863, after his return from the Northern Territory, where he had led an expedition in search of Burke and Wills in 1861. In 1865 he again left home, and headed a party to explore the Northern Territory. He afterwards settled with his wife in Gawler, and died in 1872. Mr. McKinlay was an intrepid and skilful explorer, and a monument to his memory stands in Murray street, Gawler.
