John Dunstan (1822–1892)

Another old identity has gone–Mr. John Dunstan, senr, of Kurrajong, who died on Tuesday at the age of 69 years. The funeral took place on Wednesday, when, despite the fact that the weather was wet, there was a good attendance. Mr. Dunstan had been a great sufferer for some time.
