(From our own Correspondent)
I have to record the death of an old colonist, Mr John Treloggan, who died at his residence, George’s Bay, on the 13th inst. The deceased has been a colonist for over forty years, and was one of the early pioneers of the George’s Bay district, having started agricultural and pastoral pursuits there some thirty years ago. He had been ailing for some months, and his end was not unexpected. His remains were interred in the Roman Catholic burying ground, to which faith he was a recent convert. A large number of relatives and friends followed him to his last resting place, the Rev Father Welch, of Campbell Town officiating at the grave.
