James Manning (1848–1900)

from Hawkesbury Advocate

We regret having to chronicle this week the death of an old and respected resident of the shores of the Hawkesbury River in the person of the late Mr. James Manning. The sad event occurred on Sunday afternoon last at his father's residence, Lower Portland, where deceased was born in the year 1848, being 52 years of age at the time of his demise. He was the second son, and one of twin brothers, of Mr. George Manning, who is now in his ninetieth year and still hale and hearty. Deceased leaves a widow and seven children, the eldest of whom is fifteen years. Cancer, we believe, was the cause of death. The funeral took place on Monday, 24th instant, at 2 p.m., the remains being interred in the Church of England Cemetery, Sackville. As the funeral procession entered the church, "The Dead March in Saul" was played by the organist, Miss Dunstan. The service was conducted by the Rev. T. H. Taylor (C.E.), Pitt Town, assisted by the Rev. J. Tarn, Wesleyan Minister of Sackville. The hymn, "Hush, Blessed are the Dead," was sung during the impressive ceremony. At the conclusion of the service at the grave, the Rev. Mr. Taylor invited the Rev. Mr. Tarn to say a few words to those assembled, and the latter spoke feelingly of the merits and blameless life of the departed Mr. Manning. The coffin was of polished cedar, and was made by Mr. H. W. Dunston, of Windsor, the funeral arrangements at Sackville being satisfactorily conducted by Mr. C. Kaiser.
