      JOHN ASHTON.
      An old resident of the Hawkesbury dis
      trict, John Stevenson Ashton, formerly of
      Richmond, passed to the Great Beyond at
      Clarendon on Monday at the age of 78
      years, senile decay and heart failure being
      the cause of death. Deceased was a son
      of the late Thomas Ashton, who was one
      of the first men to make bricks in Rich-
      mond, whilst his mother was formerly Miss
      Emily Magick. Both the Ashtons and Ma-
      gicks are well-known Richmond families,
      the subject of this notice being a store
      house of knowledge of the early days. De-
      ceased was related to the Stevensons, the
      Slys, and many other well-known Richmond
      families. He was married to Miss Ann
      Jane Page, an aunt of the ex-Member for
      Botany, Mr. Fred Page, and left a grown
      up family of one son and four daughters',
      viz., Joseph F. Ashton (Bundanoon), Emily,
      Susan, Linda, and Sarah. An elder son died
      in childhood. The late John Ashton was an
      old time drover, and was employed in that
      capacity by the late Arthur Dight, Messrs.
      B. Richards, J. Onus, Newcomen, and oth
      ers, and many and varied were his experi-
      ences while overlanding with mobs of 'fats.'
      The funeral took place on Tuesday, the re-
      mains being laid to rest in the Presbyterian
      cemetery, Richmond. Rev. W. R. Milne
      officiated at the graveside, and Mr. Chand-
      ler was the undertaker.
