      Mr. A. J. Field

      The death took place early yesterday morning of a very old resident of the Forbes District in the person of Mr. Arthur James Field who passed away in Crombie Hospital after only being removed there the previous day from the District Hospital.

      The deceased who was 81 years of age only became ill with gastric trouble a fortnight ago, prior to which he had been riding about daily on his Blackwood Farm at South Lead. He was born at Carrawobitty and was the son of Mr. and Mrs. pierce Field who came here from Hartley Vale in the early days and took up a large slice of land on Carrawobitty.

      The deceased was a man who was always interested in trotting and was the owner of many well known sires, including Chieftain, Blackwood and Childerwood and raced a number of his own stock here and in Sydney, while he was also a prolific winner here and at surrounding district shows.

      The deceased married Miss Mary Markwort, also a Forbes native, and leaves his widow and one daughter Mrs. Catherine Rath of Forbes.

      One brother “Toss” (Forbes) and two sisters Mrs. Scott (Inchgower) and Mrs. Thomas Laneyrie (Riverside, Forbes).

      The funeral will be to the Church of England Cemetery from St. John’s Church at 3pm today.
