Titus Evers (1810–1889)

We regret to have to record the death of Mr. Titus Evers, which took place on the 9th instant, at his residence, Reed's Creek, near Molong, at the ripe old age of 76 years, he having been born in Yorkshire (England) in the year 1813. Mr. Evers came to the colony in the year 1833, when 20 years old, and after a few years spent in other places he settled in the Molong district, where he has been a resident for 45 years. The funeral took place on the 11th instant, and was largely attended by the many friends of deceased, and on the way to the cemetery a service was held in St. John's Episcopalian Church, Molong.
