OBITUARY MRS. M. McCLINTOCK. Another of the early Portland dis- trict residents has passed away in the person of Mrs. Margaret McClintock, who died at Hamilton last week. She was the widow and second wife of the late Mr. J. McClintock, of Grassdale, and was the mother of a large family, some of whom still reside in the dis- trict: Two sons - James and John - were killed in the war, a third son being severely wounded. Her father and mother were the late Mr. and Mrs. William Diwell, who came out to Australia from England, landing at Portland in the year 1850, and re- sided here for many years. Mr. Di- well was a bricklayer, and some of the buildings erected by him are still standing. They later removed to the Merino district, where Mr. Diwell was killed in an accident. Mrs. Di- well played an important part in the trial for murder of Waines some years ago. Since the death of her hus- band Mrs. McClintock resided at Hamilton.
