Morton, Alfred John (Jack) (1870–1926)

The death occurred yesterday of Mr. Alfred John ("Jack") Morton, who for many years had been actively engaged in the live stock export trade. Mr. Morton was the Australian representative of the Japanese Government for which he shipped thousands of horses. As a judge of blood horses his services were much sought after in all parts of New South Wales, particularly at country shows. Mr Morton was one of eight sons of the late Mr and Mrs H. G. Morton, three of whom Messrs. Mark, H. D. and P. H. Morton, have represented various electorates in the New South Wales Parliament. The deceased is survived by his widow and one child. The funeral will leave the parlours of Motor Funeral Ltd, City-road at 9 30 this morning for Rookwood Cemetery.
