A Laggan correspondent reports the death at the ripe age of 75 years of Mrs James Connor, a prominent resident of Kempton. The deceased lady was twice married and leaves a husband, eight sons and daughters, a host of grandchildren, and a number of great grandchildren. The sons are Edward, Henry, Thomas and William, Burraga, and the daughters Mrs. T. O'Connor, Kempton, Mrs. John Marmont, Taralga, Mrs. C. Connor, Forbes, and Mrs. J. Fahey, Laggan. The late Mrs. Connor was a member of the well-known Seaman family. The funeral was very largely attended, a conspicuous feature being the number of pioneers from far and near who were present. The remains were laid to rest in the Church of England cemetery, Bolong, the Rev. S. Broadfoot, Crook- well, officiating at the grave.
