Stewart, James Horne (1825–1920)

There died at Bathurst, N.S.W., last month, at his resi¬dence, Mount Pleasant, the oldest resident in the district. Up to within a few days of his death Mr. Stewart, who was in his 95th year, was able to look round and manage his estate. Mr. Stewart was a son of the late General Stewart, an old Peninsula war veteran, who afterwards emigrated to Australia and settled in the Bathurst district. He at onetime officiated as Acting Governor. The lately-deceased gentleman had resided on the Mount Pleasant Estate for over 84 years. The remains were buried on a high isolated mountain, which has been the burial ground of the Stewart family, and was chosen by the late General Stewart, who is buried there. The recently-deceased gentleman was of a kindly, genial nature, and though he took no part in public life, he was one of the most active and interested of men in the general welfare of the district.
