    • MRS. JANE SHEATHER

      Three years after the disastrous flood of 1852, which washed the township of Gundagai away, a pioneer family of Williams came to the district to settle. Real sons of the soil, industrious and hard-working, this family knew of the hardships that beset the pioneers; but, by sheer effort of will, they won through and the descendants have now settled in various parts or this district, owing their start in life to the foresight and indus try of their pioneer forebears. One of the last members of this family, Mrs. Jane Sheathcr, died in the Gundagai District Hospital last Tuesday, in her 90th year.

      Since her husband died 27 years ago the deceased has lived in Gundagai, but prior to that her whole life was spent at Nangus. She was born at Mittagong, but came to Gundagai when only a baby.

      A family of ten children survive -- Mrs. G. Pickering (Goulburn), Mrs. F. Field (Gundagai), Mrs. A. Metcalf (Junee), Mrs. W. Paton (Gundagai), Messrs. George (Junee) , Edward (Sydney), Albert (Back Station Creek), Percy (Wantabadgery) , Bill (Back Station Creek), and Walter Sheather (South Gundagai).

      The funeral took place at Nangus on Wednesday. Rev. George E. Morris officiated at the graveside.
