    4. [S2837] Forbes Advocate, Tue 19 Sep 1939 Page 2 OBITUARY.
      Mr. John Godden
      The death of a very old and highly
      respected resident of the Forbes dis-
      trict took place in "Brentwood" private
      hospital shortly before midnight on
      Friday, when there passed away Mr.
      John Godden, aged 86, who has been
      employed and resident at Warroo since
      1886. Decensed had only been in fail-
      ing health for six or seven weeks, and
      his end came from natural causes after
      he had been in hospital for 14 days.
      With a young wife, the late Mr. God-
      den came from Rockley 53 years ago
      and took over the management of Back
      Warroo for the late C. S. McPhillamy,
      a position he retained till the cutting
      up of the Warroo Estate among the
      McPhillamy family about nine years
      ago. The deceased had witnessed the
      development of the district since its
      pioneering days, and many were the
      stories he could relate with regard to
      the early settlers' fights with blacks,
      bushfires and floods. He reared a fam-
      ily of three sons, all highy respected
      throughout the district, and in addi-
      tion is survived by a sorrowing widow,
      who is in her 77th year. The sons are
      Messrs. James (Moora Moora), Charles
      (Warroo), and Patrick (Warroo Stud
      Farm).
      The funeral took place to the Church
      of England cemetery at Forbes on Sat-
      urday afternoon and was largely at-
      tended by Warroo and Bedgerabong
      district residents. The service at the
      graveside was performed by the Rev.
      A. E. White, while Mr. A. G. Jones
      had charge of the mortuary arrange-
      ments.
