Sullivan, James (1821–1895)

On Saturday morning last, at a very early hour, Mr James Sullivan, senr., of Wilberforce, passed most peacefully away at the age of 75 years. He had been indisposed for some time past, and had had medical treatment. It is said that between 12 on Friday night and 4 o'clock on Saturday morning, he left his bed, took some food and his medicine, and said he had no pain. He afterwards went to sleep, and never more awakened. Deceased was a native of the Hawkesbury, and has a grown up family–most of whom are married. He had for some years been a resident of Wilberforce, and was much respected by all with whom he came in contact. The interment took place at the R.C. Cemetery on Sunday afternoon, Rev. Father Hayes officiating. The funeral was an exceptionally long one there being about thirty vehicles and as many horsemen following the remains to the grave. Mr. T. Collison carried out the funeral arrangements in his usual first-class style.
