Another pioneer of Bullahdelah has crossed the Great Divide in the person of William Avery, who passed away at his home on Tuesday last. The deceased was born at Glen William, on the Williams River some 78 years ago, and when a young man came to the Myall with his parents and followed farming for a great number of years. Of late years he has resided in Bullahdelah, and was highly respected by the whole town and district. His death was not unexpected as he has not had the best of health for some considerable time. He leaves a sorrowing wife and grown-up family of Mrs. Geo. Davis (Tea Gardens), Mrs A. Clayton (Stockton), Mrs. Richardson (Newcastle), Mrs. W. Gregory (New Zealand), Mrs. Shepherd (Scone), Mrs. W. Gooch (Bullahdelah), and Miss K. Avery (Bullahdelah), daughters; William, Fred, and A. Avery, sons, to whom we extend our sincere sympathy.
