OBITUARY - HENRY RAYNOR BLUNDEN.

One of the oldest residents of the Hillston district passed peacefully away at the local hospital on Sunday last, in the person of Mr. Henry Raynor Blunden.

Deceased, who was born at Bendigo, had reached the age of 83 years, and was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thos. R. Blunden, of Bendigo.

He first came to Hillston when only a lad, and for several years was a driver for Cobb & Co., on the Carrathool-Booligal-Gunbar runs. He was also one of the early mailmen, being engaged in conveying mails per pack-horse in the infancy of the district.

He was married at Hillston, when 22, to Miss Emma Ray, of Hay, and seven sons and one daughter were born of the union.

His widow predeceased him some time ago. His son, Mr. Thos. Blunden and one daughter, Mrs. J. Green, still reside in Hillston. Two brothers, Messrs. Fred and Ted. Blunden, also survive, and a large number of grandchildren and great grand children.

Of late years he had led a retired life, and spent a good deal of time in the Cooragong district. The last months of his life were spent with his daughter, Mrs. J. Green, and it was from her home that he entered hospital on Friday last.

The funeral took place on Monday afternoon in the Church of England portion of the Hillston cemetery, Rev. C. Williamson (Presbyterian) officiated, and the arrangements were in the hands of Mrs. L. D. Wilson.
