Quirk, Peter Andrew (1846–1922)

The death has occurred unexpectedly at Wellington of one of the oldest pioneers of the district — Mr. Peter Quirk, sen. He was 78 years of age. In his younger days he was a farmer and pastoralist at Boomey and Molong, but a great many years ago transferred his affections to Wellington, taking up 'Monte Christo,' at Stoney Creek. He was actively engaged on the land till five years ago, when he transferred to Stuart Town, and retirement. His wife predeceased him by two years. He is survived by two sons — Messrs. Peter and Thomas Quirk, of Stuart Town — and two daughters — Mesdames Lawson and Brady, also of Stuart Town. The Rev. Father Eviston officiated at the funeral, which took place to the Stuart Town cemetery, and was largely attended. — R.I.P.
