Smallwood, Daniel James (1822–1901)

The death of Mr. Daniel James Smallwood, a very old and respected resident of Caddai Creek, took place at his residence recently, at the advanced age of 78 years. The deceased had resided at Caddai all his life, and was well known throughout the Hawkesbury. He leaves a wife and family of grown-up sons and daughters, who are scattered over the State. The funeral took place on Monday and was largely attended. The remains were conveyed to Ebenezer Presbyterian Cemetery by boat and the long string of boats that followed formed quite an imposing sight. At the church the hymn "Rock of Ages" was sung, and a very impressive address was delivered by the Rev. A. Dandie, who officiated at the grave. The remains were placed in a leaden coffin, the outside casket being of handsomely polished cedar. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. Thomas Primrose.
