Turnbull, John (1804–1881)

Death has been busy lately. The most recent achievement of the grim monster took place on the second instant, when he took unto himself "Old John Turnbull," a native of the Hawkesbury, and one of our earliest pioneers. " Seventy-eight summers have passed and gone since our old friend first saw light."
