George John Fleming (1851–1935)

The last surviving link of an old Hawkesbury family was severed on Saturday last, when Mr. George John Fleming, of Central Macdonald, passed away at the ripe age of 83 years. A son of the late George Fleming, pioneer farmer of the Macdonald River district, the deceased was born at Central Macdonald, where he had lived all his life, and was the last of five brothers. Kind-hearted and generous and of a retiring disposition, the old gentleman was much respected by all who knew him, and widespread regret was felt at his passing. A single man, he had been ailing for some time, and succumbed to heart trouble. His demise drew relatives and friends to gether in one common band of sympathy, and the touching scenes at the burial service, presided over by the Rev. David Rees at the St. Albans Church of England cemetery on Sunday, provided ample evidence of the respect and esteem in which the deceased was held. Mr Chandler, of Windsor, carried out the funeral arrangements.
