Turnbull, James Benjamin (Gus) (1881–1949)

A very large circle of district friends learned with deep regret of the death of a popular Ebenezer resident, Mr. James Benjamin ("Gus") Turnbull, at the home of his sister, Mrs. Milhall, of Wilberforce, on Thursday morning last, at the age of 67 years.

Deceased, who had lived the greater part of his life at Ebenezer, where he was occupied in farm and orchard work, was respected as a hard and conscientious worker and a good citizen, and enjoyed a wide popularity extending to many other district centres.

Predeceased by his late wife some five years ago he is survived by two daughters, Hilda (Mrs. Knobbs) and Mary (Mrs. Knobbs), two sons, George and Edward, and several brothers and sisters, to whom the sympathy of old district friends is extended in their loss.

The respect and popularity enjoyed by deceased was evident from the very large and representative attendance at the funeral, which took place on Friday, the interment being conducted in the Church of England cemetery at Wilberforce, the Rev. Walker officiating.
