OBITUARY. MR. JOHN T. LONGFORD. The death occurred at Grong Grong on Friday last of one of the oldest and best known residents of the Grong Grong distirict in the person of Mr. John T. Longford, at the great age of 88 years. Mr Longford was born in Sydney but came to the country at an early age, and settled in this portion of the State. Many years ago he entered into farming pursuits near Grong Grong, and he and his wife earned the reputation of being splendid residents, good neighbours, and generous helpers of any worthy cause. During a residence in the district extending over 60 years, Mr Longford experienced all the hardships of the early pioneers of this district. It was not until many years after he came to the district that the railway was constructed to Narandera, and transport by horse vehicle was the only means of coming to or going from his home to other districts. The mails were then delivered much more infrequently than they are in the country centres at the present time, and the matter of obtaining supplies was a greater problem that it is today. Life generally in the country had few attractions at the time when Mr Longford settled in the district, but they, like the other pioneers, worked early and late in order to make ends meet and rear their families, and incidentally, to help make conditions for those who succeeded them much easier and more pleasant. Mr. Longford is survived by his widow and a family for five grown up sons and three daughters. The sons are John and William (Grong Grong), George (Cooma), and James and Raymond (Narandera); while the daughters are Sarah (Mrs. C.F. McLean, Narandera), Mary A. (Mrs Skinner, Lake Cargelligo), and Amelia (Mrs Cox, Grong Grong). The funeral took place at Grong Grong on Saturday last, when the remains were interred in the Church of England portion of the cemetery. The funeral was attended by a large number of old friends of the family. Messrs. Watkins Bros. had charge of the funeral arrangements.
