James Stubbs (1829–1913)

Another old Hawkesbury native passed over to the great majority on Monday, in the person of James Stubbs, who lived at Pitt Town practically all his life. He was born at Maroota and married, when only 16 years of age, to Miss Hannah Bolton. He was a farmer, and was of a very wiry constitution. He died at the age of 85 years. The issue of the marriage was a family of ten children, of whom four sons and three daughters died before their father. Those living are: Emily, Eva Alice (Mrs. James Greenfield), Maria Hannah. The burial took place at Pitt Town on Tuesday. Rev. J. F. Cherry was the officiating clergyman, and Mr. J. W. Chandler the undertaker.
