Mr John Andrew Lambert
The Manning lost a well known resident on Saturday morning when Mr John Andrew Lambert of Taree passed away in the MRD Hospital. He had been suffering with heart trouble for about 18 months and entered hospital two months before his death. Deceased was a son of the late Mr and Mrs Geo Lambert and was born on Jones Island 67 years ago. He spent all his boyhood and early manhood on Jones Island, where he was engaged in farming. Following his marriage to Miss Rhoda Sheather, a daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Benjamin Sheather, of Footscray, Victoria, he continued to reside on Jones Island for about ten years, and then he moved on to farm at Hannam Vale, where he remained for eight years. His next move was back to Jones Island and then to Taree Estate for a few years. About 20 years ago he made his home in Taree and resided here until his death. The late Mr Lambert was a man of considerable ability, and in addition to being a progressive farmer, he was actively associated with farmers organisations and church work. For many years he was a lay preacher in the Lower Manning and Taree Circuits of the Methodist Church, and he also evinced a keen interest in the Orange Lodge, in which he held several offices. He was one of the early members of the Agricultural Bureau movement in this district, being the Secretary of the Taree Estate Branch. He was also one of those who supported the movement instituted by district Bureau branches for the collective buying of fodder, fertilisers and other requirements, and which eventually resulted in the establishment of a co-operative store at Taree. Whilst a member of the Bureau the late Mr Lambert also took an active part in the staging of the Bureau exhibits at the Taree show. In recent years he acted as secretary for the Old Age Pensioners' Association at Taree. The late Mr Lambert was a man who lived a useful and active life, and one who never failed to carry out a duty which he imposed upon himself. He was temperate in all things, andduring his long sojourn in the district he won the goodwill and esteem of a large number of people. He is survived by his wife and the following children: W/O Clarence Lambert, Cpl Harvey Lambert, on fuul time service with the VDC; Messrs Lester and Benjamin Lambert (Taree), John Lambert (Sydney), Mesdames Robert Sanderson (Sydney), W Berry (Taree), and Ray Wilkins (Sydney).

Sheather, Emma Matilda (I14828)
Mrs I'Anson has lived during the reigns of five British Sovereigns: George III, George IV, William IV, Queen Victoria and Edward VII.
At the time of her arrival with her husband and a baby son on 20th July, 1839, in the 'City of Adelaide,' the Governor (Gawler) of the Colony was living in a thatched cottage on North Terrace; the greater part of the site of the city was dense scrub.
Mrs I'Anson says: 'Provisions were very scarce, and I well remember our first Sunday's dinner, which was a sheep's head and pluck, for which we paid 2/6, and thought ourselves lucky to get that. We had to wait while the sheep was killed and dressed.
I remember attending Colonel Light's funeral, and saw him interred under the present monument in Light Square.
We lived in Currie Street for about two and a half years. The city then consisted of but few houses, principally pise walls with thatched roof. I then went to reside at Dry Creek, my husband farming on a small scale. We lived there for about nine years, and during that time experienced many vicissitudes.
On one occasion having walked into town, a distance of five miles, I was, on my return journey, caught in a thunder storm at walkerville, and being dark, lost my way, and was wandering about for six hours; fell into a ditch just as a neighbour found me.
I well remember on another occasion riding in a bullock dray from Adelaide, this being the only conveyance on the roads in those days. Attached to the dray were four young bullocks. They bolted and capsized the dray, throwing me and my baby out. I received a severe cut on my head, which no doubt would have proved serious but for the thick velvet bonnet I wore. The baby escaped unhurt.
I have often seen a man with a German wagon loaded with wood coming down from the hills with his wife at one end of the yoke and a bullock at the other. I have also seen a similar team with a forked stick ploughing rows for peas.
Another item of note was a man carting milk through Adelaide with a bullock drawing a cart.
We removed from Dry Creek to One Tree Hill, where we had many hardships to endure, having to pay as much as ?10 for a bag of flour, and bad at that, with a family of ten and a sick husband to provide for; this being the time of the diggings in Victoria. '

Mrs. Mote collapsed at her home early in the night, and was taken to hospital by Ambulance, and died several hours later.

On Monday afternoon a magisterial inquiry was held by Mr P Green at the Thistle Inn, West Maitland, touching the death of Stephen Sheather, late a farmer of Bolwarra. The witnesses called were Frances Sheather, Jane Sheather, and Wm. Masters.
It appeared from the evidence that Sheather was a tenant of Mr D Dickson of Bolwarra, and that for the last month he had been almost constantly drunk. His wife, on account of his ill-usage, had left him about a month ago, and gone to Newcastle.
On Sunday morning, about six o'clock, Mr Masters, who is a neighbour, was called to see Sheather by his son, and on entering the house he found him lying on the floor, Jane Sheather and Frances Sheather, his two daughters, being beside him.
He had just expired. Mr Masters had no doubt that the deceased came to his death from the effects of intemperance. Mrs Sheather returned from Newcastle on Monday.

One Man Dies of Injuries

A collision occurred on the Yass Road on Saturday night a little before 8 o'clock, between two cyclists and a motor car. As a result, one of the cyclists, Augustus Bean, of Duntroon, died from his injuries in the Queanbeyan Hospital on Sunday afternoon, whilst the other, Arnold McInnes, was badly injured and is in the hospital. He is, however, expected to recover.

Augustus Bean, who was 25 years of age, leaves a wife and two children. He, together with McInnes, was returning from a fishing trip and both were riding without lights on their bicycles. When about 4 1/2 miles from Queanbeyan on the Duntroon Road they collided head on with a motor car coming from Ainslie, driven by Lance Vallance. The bicycles both jammed between off-side front wheel of the car, causing it to swerve off the road, both machines being smashed almost beyond recognition. The wonder is that both men were not killed outright. 
Bean, Augustus Charles (I36948)
One of the district's oldest and likeable residents passed away last month.
He was Leslie James Aspland better known as Les, to his many friends.
He was born at Camperdown in Victoria on APRIL 9th, 1890 and passed away in July at 97 years of age.
After working as a painter with his Father and Brother, Les came to Cootamundra around 1910 to act as best man at a wedding in town, and liked Cootamundra, so he stayed and secured a job as a coach painter.
While in Cootamundra he married Phyllis Mutch, and purchased a barbers shop, learned the trade and conducted this business until he purchased a 550 acre farm near Brawlin.
After 3 years on the farm he came to Young in 1921 and opened a barbers' shop on the present site of COLES store in Boorowa Street.
He later moved into the Great Eastern Hotel building, (now the Cherry Blossom Florist) and continued his business until 1954.
He had many friends who used to call into his shop just to say hello and have a yarn.
One of his closest friends was the late Sid Briggs who also conducted a hairdressing business in the town at the same time. They shared many hours together in their later years swapping stories and recalling their early days. Some recollections at the time were;
- Customers paying 6d for a shave, and 9d for a haircut.
- A 2oz. packet of tobacco was 9d.
- A packet of cigarettes was 3d , or 5 packets for one shilling.
Les had a liking for gardening and this hobby became part of his business, as he used to sell many of the plants he grew through his barbers shop. This hobby filled many happy hours when he retired from business.
He had a capacity for making friends, and many of these friendships he maintained by writing, and other means, almost until the day he passed away.
At 96 years of age he must have been one of the oldest to receive a Citizenship Award at the Australia Day Celebrations.
His "CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION" hung proudly in his room at Mount St. Joseph's Home where he was very well liked and respected, by those who came in contact with him.
Les and his wife, who predeceased him, had four children ;
Gwen Brown (Young)
Audrey Mote (Bowral)
Mona Dwyer (Young)
and son Raymond (Mick) of (Young)

A good innings by a fine man. 
Aspland, Leslie James (I75)


Her home was on the bushrangers visiting list. Mrs. Margaret Wales who lived at Young for 30 years and was one of the south western pioneers celebrated her ninetieth birthday during the week, says young witness.

The mother of thirteen children she is still hale and hearty. A typical example of the hardy race which blazed the trail in the virgin bush and laid the foundations of the great south-west. Today she surveys with pride descendants whose number total 114. A record which anyone could be justifiably proud. Unlike most of the pioneers who have reached her age Mrs. Wales is an Australian. She was born in Sydney in 1839 a daughter of the late Mr. William Percival who brought his wife and young family in a bullock dray to the heart of the bush among the densely timbered hills of Rye Park. With axe and saw and rude and primitive implements this lion hearted man carved a home for himself and family. He came from hardy stock as did his wife, experienced all the discomforts of living cut off from the warmth almost from civilization and handed down a tradition of industry and good Christian living as well as the gifts of physical strength and longevity.
Mrs. Wales is 90 and her brother Thomas Percival of Boorowa is 87 and her sister, Mrs. Nealon of Grenfell who died on Tuesday was well into her eighties. Such is the reward Mother Nature gives those who work hard in her service. Mrs. Wales had never been under a doctor?s care until she was in her seventies and the family had grown up.
Other members of the family are Oliver, Albert, Fred (Young), Charles, Alfred, Hubert in Sydney, Mrs. Pearsall in Young, Mrs. W. Herrett, Mrs. W. Hourn,, Mrs. M. Gannon, Mrs. T. McBeth, Mrs. W. Gabo in Sydney.
There are 50 grandchildren, 43 great grandchildren making a total of 114 descendants.
At 90 Mrs. Wales is enjoying the best of health. She takes a great interest in all current affairs and can discuss them with intelligence and clarity. Always a splendid needlewoman her eyesight today is into fashioning beautiful examples of fancywork is as strong as ever and she travels from one member of the family to another without if assistance.
This old lady now is the sear and yellow leaf. One of the real mothers of a new and virile Australia which has proved itself in every sphere of endeavour. From such pioneers was inherited the sterling qualities of courage, resource, determination and a noble spirit of self sacrifice that overcame all difficulties.

Late Mr G Worthy
Australian Native Reaches Ripe Age of Over 90
The death occurred at his home "Worthwell", Orion Street, North Yass, at 11 o'clock last Friday morning of Mr George Worthy, an old and highly respected resident of this district for over half a century, at the ripe age of ninety years and four months.
The old Pioneers are steadily passing away, and the links with the old days - when conditions were such as to be almost incomprehensible to the generation of to-day - rapidly disappearing.
The late Mr Worthy was a notable link with the past, for he was an Australian born, and there are very few Australian families who have a similar record. Mr Worthy was born in 1836 (the year of Queen Victoria's coronation), at George Town, Tasman Heads, now the city of Hobart, Tasmania. When a baby, of six weeks old, he was brought by his parents to Victoria, and there is reason to believe that he was the first Australian born who was registered in Melbourne. The register of Old St James Cathedral, Melbourne, which is the only authentic record now available, was John Melbourne Elliott, as its first entry. He was baptised on April 30, 1837 by Chaplain J B Naylor. But as the date of his birth is not given it is not known whether he was born before or after George Worthy, who was not christianed until October 31, 1838 but who was born on October 11 1836.
In other ways there is a rare historical flavour in connection with the early life of this old pioneer, in as much as his father and John Bateman, the explorer, raced each other to Melbourne, each eager to attain the distinction of being the first to touch the Victorian shore. The late Mr Worthy had the honour of being the first white child to land in Melbourne with his parents, over 90 years ago.
The deceased gentleman spent his boyhood days in Melbourne with his parents, where his father was a master tailor. As was mostly the case in those early days, he left both school and home at an early age to engage in the battle of life, and when onlya youth, spent some time on the goldfields of Ballarat and Bendigo, a period of which the old gentleman could recall many interesting stories and episodes. Later he settled down on "Wydendeau" station, the property of Mr Aubrey Murray, where he spent many years and finally rose to the position of manager.
Some 55 years ago, the late Mr Worthy purchased a sheep grazing property at Gundaroo, which he named "Worthwell", and after residing there for some 17 years he retired to live in Yass, where he spent the last 38 years, appropriately enough naming his town home "Worthwell".
Deceased was married to Miss Frances Thornebutt, the adopted daughter of the late Mr John Butt of Murrumbateman, and the daughter of the late Inspector Robert Thorne, who was head of the police at Wymouth, England, and who survives him.
In addition to the widow, the late Mr Worthy is survived by three sons, George, Phillip, William (all of Yass), and five daughters, Mrs Grosvenor (Randwick), Mrs Daniel (Dalton), Misses Annie (Gunning), Jean and Esther (Yass). Another daughter, Mrs Ashworth, wife of the Rev. Ashworth, Tasmania, predeceased her father seven years ago. The deceased is also survived by 29 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren.
The late Mr Worthy was of a retiring disposition and took no part in public affairs but he was a man of many interests and possessed a large number of friendswho held him in the highest respect. During his time he was champion roughrider of the State and keenly enjoyed running in brumbies from the hills, which was part of the work of the old days. He was a good cricketer and swimmer and, at the age of 74, defeated all comers at a swimming carnival at Yass, a unique achievement. His proficiency was the means of saving life. When a boy he was practically responsible for saving the crew of the Phoenix, off Hunter Heads. Young Worthy, as he was then, swam out with a rope to the rescueof those on the vessel which was in distress and, although washed back several times, finally succeeded.
In every way he was a keen athlete and sportsman. He had some stirring experiences in the bushranging days and was one of the prisoners locked in the hotel at collector by Ben Hall's gang, when the latter shot Constable Nelson.
The late Mr Worthy narrowly reaped a fine fortune. Years ago he was left a piece of land in Melbourne by an uncle, and some years ago he asked Mr W McIntosh, of Yass, to make inquiries as to its whereabouts and value as it was believed to be in the vicintity of the Melbourne Post Office. Mr McIntosh found that the Telegraph Office in Melbourne had been erected on unclaimed land, and that there was ?60,000 laying in the Treasury for anyone who could produce a clear title to the property. Although there was good reason to believe this was the land bequeathed to the late Mr Worthy, it was not possible to prove a clear title.
This fine old bushman, one of the best types, was also a poet and many of his writings are treasured by his family. Up till four years ago, when he suffered from a stroke, he enjoyed excellent health. Afterwards he was not so strong physically but retained his full mental faculties, and was a keen reader up to a couple of days before his death. Comparatively recently, on his birthday, he composed the following verse:--

Tasmania is my birthplace,
The land of the free;
Australia's my country;
My name is Worthy.
I came out with John Bateman,
That old pioneer,
1836 was the date of the year.
In Sunny Australia I've had my day;
Old faces around me have all passed away.
My time will come as the years roll along,
But like Johnny Walker, I'm still going strong.

These lines reflect the sturdy optimistic spirit of the old gentleman. Among other compositions was one in celebration of the building of Canberra.
What finer note could we end on than in reference to an ode to Australia's youngest city by one of Australia's oldest sons?
The funeral took place on Saturday afternoon to the Church of England portion of the Yass cemetery, and was largely attended. The Rev. M Holliday read the last service, and arrangements were in the hands of Mr Walter McIntosh.

The announcement of the death in action of Lieut Stanley R. Aspland which appeared in our issue of the 11th, has now been further corroborated by a letter received by the widow, Mrs S. R. Aspland who resides at Brook House Soham from a brother officer.

He writes: "Please allow me to convey my very sincere regret and to tender the deepest sympathy both of myself, the Officer Commanding (Major Leek) his late Company Commander and all his brother officers, who all feel keenly for you in your sad bereavement. We all lament the loss of one whose frank charm of manner and loveable character had endeared him to all. How much more must you feel his loss. He was killed together with his Company Commander and several other officers by the explosion of a German land mine whilst advancing through evacuated country. Death was instantaneous."

The deceased officer who was 27 years of age belonged to an Ely family and married Miss Eva Fisk, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs Herbert J Fisk of Hardcroft, Soham. Since his marriage he had made his home in Soham and had become intimately acquainted with many people in the locality. His charm of person and kindness of heart had won him many friends. At Ely the deceased officer was well known, he having been in the employ of the Ely Gas Company for eleven years. He was a member of the Ely Liberal Club and amongst other official duties held the position of secretary. At the time of his death he was serving in the Machine Gun Corps.

And settled on its banks Oct 20th 1828
And the first White man
The natives ever saw

The funeral took place yesterday afternoon, the cortege leaving the Methodist Church after service conducted by Rev. N W Lickiss. During the service two of deceased's favourite Hymns "Jesu Lover of My Soul" and "Abide With Me" were sung. Mr Lickiss made feeling reference to the life of deceased. He said "The late Mr Wales possessed those qualities which we had learned to associate with the pioneers. He was a man of simple tastes, independent spirit, high principles and Christian faith. In past years the family had been closely associated with the Church at Young, but of late Mr Wales depended largely on the Bible for inspiration and comfort. That Book was his constant companion and guide, and on its teaching he was no mean authority.

Speaking of the present upheaval in the world and the inevitable changes after the war Mr Lickiss said "That a new generation may interpret the Bible and the truths of Christianity in a way that will differ from the pioneers, but the need of God and spiritual things will still exist. We can best honor the dead by building characters and homes on the Christian foundations which alone have proved adequate to meet the storm of life".

The deceased was laid to rest in the family enclosure, alongside the remains of his late wife in the presence of a large number of sympathising relatives and friends. The pallbearers were Messrs Bernie Wales (Grandson), Jack Wales (Light Horse) Nephew; Alfred I'Anson (Son-in-Law), and Ollie Wales (Nephew). Rev. Lickiss officiated at the grave side.

The death occurred at Corryong, where she was visiting, on Saturday night, of Mrs Louisa SHEATHER, who was almost 92 years of age, and who was the oldest resident in this district, where she resided for about 75 years, most of it being spent across the Murray, but for some years she had made her home in Walwa. The late Mrs Sheather was of a most cheerful disposition, and to the end took a keen interest in all movements. She was born at Winterbourne, Salisbury, England, and arrived in Australia with her parents when about 15 years of age. They settled in the South Coast of NSW, before coming to the Upper Murray. She married, first Mr Emerson, who died suddenly, leaving her with a young family of 10. Some years latter she married Mr Sheather and he was accidentally drowned, about four years later.

A quiet but very pretty wedding was celebrated in the Methodist Church, Young, on Wednesday last, the Rev. W H Jones officiating. The contracting parties were Arthur, eldest son of the late Mr Stephen Plumb, of Gunning, and Maud, youngest daughter of Mrs J W Perks, Main Street, Young. The bride entered the Church on the arm of her brother-in-law (Mr Ernest Begg) looking charming in a handsome dress of chiffon taffeta silk; she carried a shower bouquet of roses and marguerites which, with a ruby and pearl brooch, were the gifts of the bridegroom. The bride was attended by two bridesmaids, Miss Edith Plumb (sister of the bridegroom) and Miss Mabel Wales (niece of the bride). The former was gowned in cream linen voile, and the latter in cream silk, and both carried shower bouquets and wore brooch and pin respectively, gifts of the bridegroom. Mr Chas. Plumb (brother of the bridegroom) fulfilled the duties of best man.
After the ceremony the party proceeded to Mrs Norman's, where the breakfast was served, and all toasts duly honored. The Rev. Mr Jones presided, and in proposing the health of the bride and bridegroom, spoke very highly of the bride, and referred touchingly to the daughterly devotions shown by that lady to her widowed mother.
Mr and Mrs Plumb left by the evening train, the bride's travelling dress being of pale blue voile, hat to match. Despite the unfavourable weather, many friends gathered at the station to wish all happiness and success to the happy couple. The wedding presents were numerous and costly.
