Hayes, farmer, of GEencoe. The' deceased, who was in his 77th year, had been in poor health for a considerable time, and a feaw weeks ago was: taken to the hospital for treatment.. The cause of his death were troubles .consequent on age. M'r. iayes was born in Melbourne in -1842, and was brought to the South-East 1 when only; fie .-years of age by his parents, so thelt his residence in, the district covers a period of 'bout 72 years. SA very old resident of Murray Bridge and a colonist since 1838 died on the 3rd July in the person of -Mr. Gottfried Liebelt, who was in his 84th year. The deceased was boir on the Ith August, near Zillchan, Germany, and arrived In this State on the 25th November, 1838, in the first ship to bring German immi grants to Australia, the Prince George, which was chartered by the late George Fife Angas. DMrs. Liebelt died on 3rd September, 1916. There are seven sur viving sons, 26 grandchildien and five great grandchildren. The deceased is believed to be the lapt pioneer of the first three ships which aririved in South Australia with German inmmigranits. Mr. James Fleet, manager of the Mt. Gambier Cheese and Butter Factory, died on Thursday morning after a few days' illness, from pneumonia. He was a son of Mrs. Fleet, of Attamurra, and the late Mr. J. L. Fleet, and was '-ti years of age. There passed away at Mt. Barker on Sunday evening last Mr. Hugh McFar- lane, who would have attained the great age of 93 years had he lived until the 26th August next. He was born in Scotland and left that country in 1852 in the ship Pomanders, when in his 26th year, and came to Adelaide. Mr. Mc- Farlane served his apprenticeship as a currier, and was looked upon as the leading exponent in the preparation of leather. One by one (says the Hamilton Spec tator) the old pioneers are dying out. On the 12th June Mr. Richard Bryant, one of the best known and most highly respected residents of the Mooralla dis- trict, passed away at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. Robert Shilcock, having reached his 91st year. He was born at Kewry, near Helston, Cornwall, England, on 15th May, 1829, and mar- ried Miss Elizabeth Millstead, of Hels- ton, in 1850. They came to Australia in the sailing ship Epaminoudas in 1853, landing in Adelaide after a voyage of six months. After working for a while in Adelaide, he came to Portland in 1854, and walked from there to the Bal- larat diggings. While passing through where Hamilton now is he stayed a night at the old Grange hotel, which was the only building here at that time. After a short stay at the diggings he was employed by the late Mr. Andrew Chirnside, of Carranbolac. He return- ed to Ballarat in 1855, where his wife joined him, and they remained there until 1858. There his daughter, Mar- garet (Mrs. R. Shilcock) was born. From Ballarat he went to Cavendish, then a station of Mr. A. Chirnside, where his daughter Elizabeth (Mrs. Mc- Whirter) was born. He lost his wife there, and entered into the employ of Mr. S. Carter, of Glenisla. Seven years later he married Miss Margaret Nowlan, of Crookstown, County Kildare, Ire- land, and, taking up land at Mooralla, was the first to settle there, where two sons and two daughters were born. He settled at the Victoria Lagoon, where he made his home, and joined the Me- thodist church, frequently walking with his familysix miles to the church ser vices. The Rev. Mr. Cole was the minister. Losing his second wife in 1907, he retired some years later, and lived with his son-in-law, Mr. Robert Shilcock, at Free Park, Woohlpooer. The respect in which Mr. Bryant was held was manifested by the large ga- thering at his funeral, when residents from all the district round attended. The cortege halted for:a while when passing his old residence at the Lagoon, and then proceeded to the Cavendish old cemetery, where he was laid to rest, his grandsons, Les. McWhirter and Richard, Willie, and Hubert Shilcock, bearing the coffin to the grave. His living descendants are four children, 35 grandchildren; and 28 great grand- children.
