One of the oldest district residents, in the person of Mr John Lingard, passed away on Thursday morning at the age of 90 years.
About five years ago deceased had a cancer removed from his jaw, and after that appeared to get better. But after a time
the trouble gradually returned and for the past six months he had been a great sufferer.
During the latter part of his illnes deceased was constantly attended to by his only daughter (Mrs Tollis, of Sydney), who did
everything, combined with medical attendance, to relieve the intense pain he suffered, and brighten his fast ebbing life,
He was conscious up to the last, and said “good bye” to his daughter just before he expired, this being at nine o’clock on the
day mentioned. During deceased’s illness he was visited by Rev Dixon Hudson, also by Mr T Thompson, a neighbour.
The late Mr Lingard was born in England and came to this oolony when a young man. He was employed by the King family and Mr J E Lethbridge (now of
Tregeare) on the Dunheved Estate, being with them over 60 years, and had resided in the house where he died some 47 years.
Deceased had been married twice, his second wife predeceasing him some five years ago. There was only one issue, a daughter,
as before mentioned, by the first wife.
Prior to his first illness (five years ago) he had not known what it was to have a day’s sickness, often stating he never had taken
medicine of any kind. He was always known as a straight goer, his word being bis bond.
The funeral took place on Friday.
