Death. - On Sunday news spread through the district that Mr. Stephen Purnell had passed away at the advanced age of 88 years. The burial took place on Tuesday, and was very largely attended, and as the cortege wended its way to St Jude's Church the bell tolled out the number of years the deceased has attained. The Rev. J. Roberts held a very impressive service at the church, after which the mortal remains were followed to the C.E. cemetery where a great many had assembled to pay respect to the oldest pioneer of the district. Mr. Purnell was married to Miss Rosetta Moulds, daughter of the late Simon Moulds, sen., of Dural, at All Saints Church, Parramatta in the year 1853. The deceased leaves a widow and seven children of five daughters and two sons, 44 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren. Many beautiful wreaths were placed on the grave. The funeral arrangements were ably carried out by Mr. Metcalfe, Parramatta.
