Turnbull, Joseph James (1845–1940)

Mr. Joseph James Turnbull, aged 95, died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. R. Ferrett, at Nana Glen last Thursday. For many years he resided at Bonville, but shifted out a few years ago to live with his daughter. He enjoyed excellent health during practically all his life, and his answer was always "Good oh" when asked how he was. Up till about 12 months ago he used to ride about the paddocks on horseback after cattle. During the past 12 months he seemed to get very tired at times. His wife died about 11 years ago. Mrs. Ferrett is the only daughter. Mr. Albert Turnbull, of Bonville, is a son. Another son is Mr. Jim Turnbull, of the South Coast. Another son was killed when knocked down by a car in Melbourne about 18 months ago. The funeral was at Coffs Harbour Cemetery last Friday afternoon. Rev. G. A. Beatty (Presbyterian) conducted the service and Mr. C. H. Everingham the funeral arrangements.
