MR. ROBERT BIGNELL.

The death occurred at his residence, Cornwall-street, Taree, on Monday, of Mr. Robert Bignell, in his 77th year. Deceased was a native of the Williams River, where he married Miss Mary Ballard, and came to the Manning about 40 years ago. He settled on a farm at Lansdowne, and was admired by all who knew him for his exemplary character. A couple of years ago he suffered a severe heart attack and his life was despaired of. But he rallied and was able to get about again. Since then be has had two or three similar attacks, the most severe coming on about November last. This prostrated him so much that he gradually weakened to the end. The deceased was a cricket enthusiast, and in his younger days played with a team composed of him self and his ten brothers. He was one of a family of 15. Mrs. H. Towers, Coopernook, is a sister. The widow and six sons and six daughters are left to mourn the loss of a devoted father. Messrs. Clarence (John's River), Alfred (John's River) and Alex (Hannam Vale) are sons, and Mesdames Frank Towers (Coopernook), Jonas Drury (Taree), Andrew Drury (Lansdowne) and Jonas Unicomb (Taree) daughters. Louis is a Salvation Army officer at Bundabcrg (Q.), and David holds a similar position at Queanbeyan. The funeral took place yesterday (Tuesday) at Dawson cemetery. Rev. H. Skuse, assisted by Commandant Butt, conducted the service, and Mr. W. T. Howard the funeral arrangements.
