Morton, Arthur Richard (1872–1912)

from Sydney Morning Herald

Alderman Arthur Richard Morton, who conducted an auctioneer's and agency business at Lismore, died on Sunday, from heart failure supervening on an attack of gastritis, aged 40. The deceased, who was a very popular figure on the North Coast, was a native of the Shoalhaven, and was a brother of Messrs. F. M. and H. D. Morton, members of the Legislative Assembly. There are five of the brothers–Mr. P. H. Morton, who is in London at present; Mr. O. G. Morton, of Muswellbrook; Mr. A. J. Morton, of McCabe, Morton, and Co., of Sydney; Mr. Septimus Morton, of Shoalhaven; and Mr. S. S. Morton, of Stewart Morton and Co., of Sydney. The father, Henry Gordon Morton, is dead, but Mrs. Morton survives. The deceased leaves a widow and five children. Mrs. Morton was a Miss Gaden, of Forbes. It was at first intended to bring the remains to Sydney for transhipment to Nowra for burial, but this was found to be impracticable, and the funeral took place at Lismore.
