Spent Whole Life In Coonamble District

Surprise, coupled with deep regret, was manifest in Coonamble last week when it became known that Mr. Pinnock Peacock, one of the district's best known and successful graziers, had died in Sydney.

A son of the late Mr. James Peacock, of Combogolong, he was a native of Coonamble, in which district he spent the whole of his life.

When the Final Call came he had attained the age of 63 years.

Deceased gained his education in the Public School in Coonamble and after reaching man's estate decided on the land as a means of livelihood.

It was not long before he became keenly interested in the grazing industry, and his "Wariadah," property, situated about forty-two miles on the Walgett. road, pays eloquent tribute to his enterprise, energy and perseverance. Pinnook Peacock was a mail who gained the respect of all with whom he was associated. His more intimate acquaintances refer to deceased in glowing terms, counting him a worthy member of a family whose name has been closely identified with the Coonamble district for over fifty years.

The late Mr. Peacock is survived by a widow, and one daughter, Miss Laura.

The brothers are Mr. J. B. Peacock (Merri Merri), Mr. Athol Peacock ("Tawonga"), Mr. Garwin Peacock and Mr. Garnet Peacock (Coonamble). There is only one sister, Miss E. M. Peacock (Bowenfels).

The body was conveyed by train to Coonamble and after a service had been conducted in St. Barnabas' Church of England, interment took place, The cortege was large and representative, families from all parts of the district being in attendance. The Rev. A. S. Rowe officiated in the Church and at the graveside.
