12. Edward Golsby

We take from the "Bathurst Times'' the following account of the death of an old identity, Mr. Edward Golsby, brother of Mrs. A. Matheson, Richmond: — One of Bathurst's oldest and most highly esteemed citizens, Mr. Edward Golsby, died at about noon to-day at his residence, 'Brockley,' Hope-street, at the age of 85 years, after a short illness. Up to a few weeks ago, Mr. Golsby apparently enjoyed the best of health, and carried his years with a vigor and buoyancy that surprised his friends. A severe attack of bronchitis however, proved too much for even his fine constitution, and he failed to rally. By the death of Mr. Golsby, a link with the pioneer days is broken. He was a native of Bathurst, and had lived in the district all his life. For many years he was engaged in pastoral pursuits in the Rockley district, and took a prominent part in all public movements for the welfare of that centre. Later he set up a business in Bathurst, and for some years was an alderman of the local council, where his sound common sense and practical outlook made him a valued adviser in all civic affairs. He was one of the oldest members of the Bathurst Bowling Club; and indulged in the game until lately. The deceased gentleman leaves three daughters— Mrs. H. Barnes (Orange), Mrs. J E. Larnach (Forbes), and Miss Golsby (Bathurst)— and one son, Mr. Charles Golsby of Caloola. Mr. William Golsby, of 'Rockburn,'' is a brother and Mrs. Matheson, of Richmond, a sister. Messrs Roy and Bert Golsby are nephews. The deceased's wife died about 14 years ago.

Mary Elizabeth Corry

The news of the death of Mrs. Golsby, wife of- Mr. Edward Golsby, of Hope street, will be received throughout the district with profound regret. The deceased lady was a native of the Bathurst 'district.' and was particularly beloved by all who knew her. During her life she displayed that best attribute of the true Christian— the relieving of those in sickness and distress. Her name was deeply revered in the Rockly district, where she and her family resided for many years. The late Mrs. Golsby is survived by her husband and a family, who are as follows: — Mrs. James' Larnach (Dunn's Plains), Mrs. M.  Crowhurst (Gosford), Mrs. 11. Barnes (Orange), Miss Ethel Golsby (Bathurst), and Mr. Charles . Golsby (Three Brothers, Caloola). Mr. Bert Golsby and Mr. Roy Golsby arc nephews, and Mr. Charles Cony, of Blury Hill, near Caloola, is a brother. Mrs. Golsby's age was 72, and she had been married for upwards of half a century. Much sympathy is expressed for Mr. Edward Golsby and the family in their irreparable loss. The funeral is announced to take place this afternoon.

77. Catherine Emily Golsby

Died from typhoid

78. Alexander Claud McLean

This case was before the Court on Thursday last, when Mr. Boyce, instructed by Messrs. Lane and Roberts, appeared for the petitioner, Alberta Lucy McLean, formerly Hoowarth, who sought a divorce from her husband, Alexander Claude McLean, a farmer, on the ground of constructive desertion. The respondent did not appear. The parties to the suit were married by the Rev. John Ferguson at Sydney according to the rites of the Presbyterian Church on January 16, 1895. The evidence of the petitioner went to show that she and her husband had only lived together 11 weeks, and that their married life had not been happy. His Honor having heard the evidence of petitioner held that it was not sufficiently strong to justify the Court in ordering the dissolution of the marriage. To-day his Honor again mentioned this case, and stated that after further careful consideration of the evidence, and also of the case of Giblett v. Giblett, which Mr. Boyce had cited in support of his client's petition, he had come to the conclusion that the petitioner was entitled to the relief she prayed. He, therefore, rescinded his farmer order and granted the decree nisi, directing that it should be moved absolute in two months.
