David Johnston (1798–1866)

from Tumut and Adelong Times

The death of Mr. David Johnston, of George's Hall, on the 3rd instant creates a great blank in a large and much esteemed colonial family. The deceased gentleman was in his usual health until two days before his death, and no danger was apprehended, as he appeared to be suffering only from a severe cold. Mr. Johnston, who was born in the colony, was the third son of Lieutenant Colonel Johnston, of Annandale, and father of Mr. D. P. Johnston, of Adelong. He had paid great attention to stock, and especially to the breeding of horses.
