    • Cootamundra's veteran, Mr Isaac Sheather, passed away in the Cootamundra District Hospital on Sunday afternoon at the grand old age of 92. He had been a patient in the hospital for some time. The late Mr Sheather was born in Camden in 1854, and as a youth he travelled from Camden to Nangus by horseback, where he started dairying, but was unlucky to strike a dry spell.

      He lived at Cootamundra for over 60 years, apart from several small breaks, when he went to the South Coast, and also to Victoria. He was one of those who took part in the big gold rush in Temora in the early days. At Christmas time 1945, he paid his first visit to Sydney for 65 years, staying with his son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Walter Brown of Cremorne. He recalled then that he remembered Sydney when the cows used to graze at Rose Bay. Mrs Frank Mitchell, of Cootamundra, and Mrs Walter Brown, of Cremorne are the only children.

      Deceased owned a number of houses in Cootamundra. Maintaining his full faculties until recently, he was very interesting in his chats on the old days of the town and district
