William John Turnbull (1843–1924)

from Macleay Chronicle

Mr. William John Turnbull, whose illness we noted in previous issue passed away on Monday morning last, aged 80 years. The deceased gentleman was born at Lower Portland in the Hawkesbury district, and came to this river at a very early age. He resided in Euroka for over fifty years, and was a particularly fine type of pioneer being noted for his sterling character and industrious nature. His wife was a Miss Trees, and she survives him, but there was no issue of the union. Messrs. Joseph James (Bonville), James B. (Austral Eden), Henry Waugh (Singleton), John (Bonville), Ralph (Commandant Hill), and George (Euroka), are brothers of the deceased; and Miss Martha Ann Turnbull, of South West Rocks, is a sister. Two sisters predeceased him. The funeral, under conduct of Mr. Jos. T. Walker, took place to Euroka Cemetery on Tuesday, the Rev. T. M. Taylor, B.A., officiating at the graveside in the presence of a large attendance.
