Allan Beatrice Gordon (1846–1917)

Another link with the past has been severed by the death of Mrs. Allan Beatrice Gordon, of Manar, wife of the late Mr. W. F. Gordon. The deceased lady, who was 71 years of age, was the mother of Messrs. W. D. Gordon, of Manar, and J. H. Gordon, of Bungendore. Death took place in Sydney last Tuesday morning. The deceased lady had undergone an operation some months ago, from which she had not recovered, although her end was not expected so quickly. She was an estimable woman, and, like her late husband, beloved of all who knew her. By the servants on the estate she was simply venerated. The body was brought to Manar station, on Wednesday morning's train, being met at Tarago by Mr. E. Morris's well-appointed hearse, and accompanied by a large number of friends of the family. The service usually held in the church was conducted at Manar house by the Rev. W. D. Kennedy. The cortege as it moved from there to the family burial ground was a lengthy one, amongst the mourners being a number of Braidwood people. The burial ground is situated on the top of a bald nob behind the house. Here lie the remains of the late Mr. Gordon and about 15 estate servants. From it one has an excellent view of Jellamatong in the distance. The hearse was simply smothered with beautiful wreaths. Amongst those present were residents of Forbes, Goulburn, Queanbeyan, Young and Sydney. The chief mourners were Mr. and Mrs. W. D. Gordon, Mr. And Mrs. J. H. Gordon (sons), Mr. Warry (son-in-law), Mr. Orridge, Mr. Lamb (nephews). The service at the graveside was impressively conducted by the Rev. W. D. Kennedy.
