Mr. A. PIGRAM

The death took place yesterday morning of Mr. Austin Pigram, at his home, Commons street, Junee. He was one of the pioneer farmers of the Eurongilly district and was aged 70 years.

The deceased came to the Junee district a young man and was a fine horseman. Desirous of seeing the country, mounted on a fine animal he rode to the west of Bourke and to the Queensland border. He was a keen follower of cricket and played a good game.

He is survived by two sons, Walter, farmer of Eurongilly, and Albert, of Ascotvale (Vic), and four daughters, Misses Ruby and Millie (Junee), Mrs. Cecil Grogan (Binalong) and Mrs. W. Pigram (Bribbaree). The funeral takes place this morning.

It was he who assisted in the formation of the old Eurongilly Race Club, and together with his brother had a large number of very fine horses.

Deceased was also an ardent cricketer, and around about Nangus and Eurongilly was a power to be reckoned with at that game.

Deceased's wife predeceased him by many years. She was buried in the Junee cemetery. There are six -children of the union—two sons and four daughters.

The remains were removed to the Catholic Church, from whence the funeral moved on Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock. Deceased enjoyed quite good health till about three months ago, when signs of a complete breakdown became manifest, and the end was not unexpected.

During his illness he had the consolation of his church, the Rev Fr. Cochrane being a constant visitor.

The late Austin Pigram married Emily Mary Jenkins, of the Billabong, who was a member of the Jenkins family, famous in the pastoralist world in those distant days. She predeceased him by some 24 years.

Pigram, of Bribbaree, and Mrs. Cecil Grogan, of Ilialong (near Binalong). One daughter, Mrs. N. Buckley, died at Goulburn, three months ago.

In his boyhood days, deceased followed the occupation of a carrier, travelling to Sydney with wool with the teams of his father, the late Robert Leopold Pigram. Subsequently Austin Pigram settled at Eurongilly, where he followed farming and grazing pursuits, with the greatest possible success.

Some six years ago he retired from active life to live in Junee, where he acquired an amount of town property.
