Obituary William Sibson. There passed away, on Tuesday evening, one of the old Parramatta landmarks - Mr. William Sibson, aged 86 years, who had continuously resided in Parramatta for 58 years and 5 months. The deceased was born in Leicester, England, and came to the colony with his son in September 1840. For some years he carried on the business of a bootmaker, in Harvey's Row, nearly opposite Dr. Waugh's. Afterwards he married Mrs. Monks, and, giving up his own business, he assisted in the butchering business of his wife, at the corner of Smith and George Streets. When Mrs. Sibson died, some 20 years ago, he gave up business and has lived a retired life ever since. He was always a regular attendant at the Bowling Green and played an astonishingly good game for his age. Up to within the last two years the deceased gentleman enjoyed excellent health, but since then he has had two strokes of paralysis, which seemed to break him up very much. However, he was quite cheerful up to the last, and was conscious up to a few minutes of his death. His pet white cockatoo, which had been his companion for about 50 years, survives him. The deceased leaves one son, Mr. William Sibson, of Goulburn, who was present at the time of his father's death. He has been living in Goulburn for the past 44 years, and occupies a position under the Council. The deceased perhaps carried himself more erect than any man in Parramatta, and an impression always prevailed that he had been in the army. This was not so. A more kindly disposition did not exist than that of the late William Sibson, who was well known to almost every old boy in Parramatta. The funeral ov the veteran bowler took place on Wednesday. The Rev. R. Rook officiated at the grave-side, at the Baptist cemetery. Among those attending to pay a tribute of respect to their old-time friend and fellow-townsman, were many well-known citizens.
