Smith, John (1811–1895)

The death is reported of Mr. John Smith, M.L.C. at Ashfield. The deceased gentleman had resided in the colony since 1839, having been continuously engaged in pastoral pursuits since that date. He owned the well-known Tamboola Station at Molong, while he also held other stations in the same district, which now belong to his sons. He had been a member of the Legislative Council since 1880, his last speech being made in connection with the Land Bill a few days ago. He then caught cold, from the after effects of which he expired. He leaves four sons and six daughters, one of whom is married to Sir George Innes.
