MR J. J. MEDHURST. Wollombi - Howe's Valley. Obituary 1938

Singleton Argus NSW
20 July 1938


The death in the Dangar Cottage Hospital yesterday of Mr Jonathan James Medhurst, at the age of 76, has removed from the district a highly respected resident, who leaves a large circle of friends and relatives to mourn his passing.

Deceased was born at Wollombi, and had followed farming pursuits in the Hunter Valley all his life. The last 30 years he had been actively interested in grazing at Howe's Valley, and only retired a few years ago, when he took up residence in Kelso.
Only about a week ago he became ill, and his fight against severe pneumonia was unavailing.

He leaves a widow, five sons, and seven, daughters, viz., John, Laban, and, Harold (Putty), Herbert (Singleton),and Roen (Cessnock); Mesdames W. Merrick (Cessnock), J. Merrick (Broke), W. Taylor (Glenridding). H. Taylor (Singleton), J. Medhurst (Riverstone), Miss I. Medhurst (Sydney), and Miss R. Medhurst  (Glenridding).

The funeral left deceased's residence, Carrington-street, Kelso, at 3 p.m. this afternoon for the Church of England cemetery, Whittingham.
