DEATH OF MR. ALFRED EMERTON, JUN.—It is with feelings of deep sympathy and appropriate esteem that I record the rather sudden demise of Mr. Alfred Emerton, jun., of Wollondilly River, but formerly of the Forest (Greenwich Park). He was the eldest son of Mr. Alfred Emerton, an old and honoured resident of this district from its early days, but now in the metropolis The deceased gentleman was born at Bannaby, but came with his parents to Greenwich Park, where he permanently resided until his conjugal union with Miss Annie Murray, who had prior to her marriage lived from her childhood with Mr. John McCallum, of Forest Lodge. When he went to reside at his late home Mr. Emerton was engaged shearing at Arthursleigh, when he became seriously ill. It was raining at the time, which necessitated the sufferer travelling home. He doubtless got wet, and it is believed that he became unable to ride, and being alone lay on the humid ground, which hastened his sudden death. The primary cause was peritonitis, accelerated by a chill and the shearing of damp sheep. Dr. McMaster, from Goulburn, attended the sufferer, and did all that medical aid could do to alleviate his pains. The deceased leaves a widow and one child, well provided for, together with a large circle of friends. He was of an unassuming disposition and sterling qualities from every point of view. His remains were interred in the Church of England cemetery at Marulan.
