DEATH OF AN OLD IDENTITY. (1902, October 17). The Carcoar Chronicle (NSW : 1878 - 1943), p. 2. Retrieved from http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article102645144 DEATH OF AN OLD IDENTITY. On Wednesday morning of last week there occurred at his residence at Garland, the death, of Mr. James Kirkpatrick, harness and collar maker. Mr Kirkpatrick was born in the year 1812, and was consequently 90 years old. For some time past he had been failing, and was not able to go much out of doors. The law to " bear one another's burdens " was fulfilled by kind neighbors, who took their share in tending the sick one, and caring for him. By the death of Mr. Kirkpatrick a landmark in the district has been removed, and another of the few now remaining links with the past have been sundered. He was born on May 6th, 1812, at Tynron, Dumfriesshire, Scotland. In 1855 he came to Australia, where he continued to pursue the occupation he has taken up, always doing his work faithfully and well. What striking changes must have been seen during the many years he lived. He lived during probably the most intellectually progressive period of human history — ocean steamships, railways, telegraph lines, ocean cables, electric motors, electric railways, cheap postal system, etc., having been either introduced to the world or elaborated. Also, within this period,political constitutions have been developed, educational blessings extended, and religious privileges increased. The funeral took place on Thursday, 9th inst., the remains being interred in the Lyndhurst cemetery,in the presence of relatives and friends, and some of the older residents in the district. A brief service was conducted in the house of the deceased, and another at the grave-side, by Rev. J. Brotchie, M.A., who paid a touching tribute Mr Kirkpatrick's memory. Beautiful wreaths were deposited on the grave. Mr Kirkpatrick, who was unmarried, in survived by two brothers of Blayney, and of Closeburn, near Albury, respectively.
