Charlie John Turnbull (1888–1936)

The whole district was shocked on Monday when the news became known that Mr. Charlie John Turnbull, a well-known and highly respected resident of Sackville North, had passed away that day. He had been ill on and off for a good while, and died at his home at the age of 48 years. Born at Sackville, he was the younger son of the late John Warr and Ann Turnbull, his father being one of a large family of the late George and Louisa Turnbull, and who, when quite a young man, married Miss Ann Manning, a daughter of the late George Manning, a sea-faring captain who ran a trading boat on the Hawkesbury. The subject of this notice was married in the Church of England, Cessnock, to Miss Nina Manning, who survives together with two children — Russell and Ellis. Messrs. George and Herbert (Penrith), Alfred (Richmond) and David (Sydney) are brothers, and Edith (Mrs. A. C. Anderson, Comleroy Road) and Fannie (Mrs. Moore, Sydney) are sisters of the deceased. The eldest sister, Amy (Mrs. Aspery), and two brothers, Percy and Oscar, predeceased their brother. The late Charlie Turnbull was a man of fine character, honorable and upright in the truest sense. He was well-known and highly respected throughout the district, and there were many genuine expressions of sympathy when his death became known. The funeral left the deceased's late residence, Sackville North, on Tuesday afternoon for the historic Presbyterian cemetery, Ebenezer, where the remains were interred. The large attendance at the funeral and at the graveside was ample proof of the high esteem and respect in which the deceased was held throughout the district. Rev. A. J. Carter conducted the last sad rites and Mr. Chandler carried out the funeral arrangements.
