Simon Frederick Staughton (1834–1895)

from Argus

Mr. Simon F. Staughton died this morning of tetanus, having been suddenly taken seriously ill on the Friday night previously. He was one of the largest and most entertaining of the land-owners here, and gave hearty and liberal help in all matters affecting the welfare of the settlement. No man in Mildura was more highly respected, or will be more missed. Great sympathy is felt for the family. Several sons have orchards here, and the deceased was a large holder of Melbourne property, also the owner of landed estates near Geelong. He was a brother of Mr. S. T. Staughton, M.L.A.
