An Obituary from The Methodist dated June 15, 1895 reads:
MR. GEORGE TURNBULL.
George Turnbull was born at Portland, Hawkesbury River on Jan. 2nd 1830. *In 1855 he and his now mourning widow, were converted to God and joined class. Three years afterward Brother Turnbull entered on the work of a local preacher in which he displayed earnestness and devotedness until his strength failed about a year ago through dropsy supervening on influenza.
His last days were attended with great weariness and prostration but he was
graciously sustained, and having set his house in order, he bade farewell to his family and friends and went to be with the Lord at midnight on Wednesday May 15th.
' And there shall be no night there. ' A large and respectful concourse attended his burial in the venerable Presbyterian cemetery at Ebenezer beside ancestral graves ; the Rev. John Ayling in a true brotherly spirit assisting in the service. A memorial service at Lower Portland was a solemn
and profitable time to a large congregation while the preacher, Rev. J. A. Waddell, showed how our departed brother ' Served his generation by the will of God. ' Kindly appreciate testimonies, too extensive for publication, were received by the writer, from Rev. James Somerville, Henry Woodhouse, W. O. Hughes and R. Johnston, Mr. Hughes closing a warm eulogy with
these lines: —
.' The cheerful voice we hear no more,
The genial smile, the hearty song
Were welcomed where hope lived before- —
Are joined in yon celestial throng. '"
