    • 1906 - The Hillgrove Guardian August 25, 1906 - Death of Mr Geo. Morrow, Senr
      We regret to have to record the death of Mr George Morrow, who died at his residence, Bracken street, on Monday morning, at about 8 o'clock, from senile decay. Deceased had reached the advanced age of 82 years, and had only been ill a week prior to his demise. Dr Costelloe did all that medical skill could avail to prolong the old gentleman's life, while members of the family nursed him with unremitting attention and loving tenderness, and thus made his passage from this mundane sphere, where his sojourn had been longer than that given to the great majority of mankind, as peaceful as possible.
      The late Mr Morrow was born in the town of Crevenish, county Fermanagh Ireland, in 1824, and arrived in Sydney with his father in 1841 - 65 years ago - being then 17 years of age. He landed in Armidale in 1844, the Cathedral City of the North being then only a small village. For several years - before the era of the Iron Horse, Mr Morrow conducted a carrying business between Maitland and Armidale, and afterwards went into farming operations. Subsequently he embarked in the business of hotelkeeping, having kept the Daniel O'Connell Hotel at Armidale and the Commercial at Uralla during the gold rush at the Rocky. Relinquishing hotelkeeping Mr Morrow lived in Armidale until removing to Hillgrove some 19 years ago, where he resided until the Grim Reaper called him away to that unexplored land. Like most the old pioneers the late Mr Morrow met with varying fortune, being at one time well-to-do. However he wanted for nothing in his declining years, he and his aged widow (75 years) living happily and comfortably together in Brackin st, and the old lady will greatly miss her partner of 55 years. Their lives together during that long period being of the serenest and happiest nature. Deceased was of an unobtrusive and genial nature, possesing the usual optimism and humour of his countrymen. He was a man of strict integrity, and honourable in all his dealings.
      Besides the aged widow a family of six sons and three daughters survive deceased - Robert, James, Richard (Hillgrove), George, Johnstone (Inverell), and Alfred (New Zealand); Mrs Rathburn, Collins (Hillgrove) and Burrows (Sydney). Also 32 grandchildren. One daughter - Mrs M. Roberts - predeceased her father.
      The funeral on Tuesday was largely attended. The body was taken to St Georges Church, and thence, after a short prayer by the Rev Mr Nixon, who also conducted the service at the grave, to the C. of E. cemetery, where the interment took place. A number of beautiful wreaths and floral emblems were laid on the coffin. Mr Hirschberg, Armidale, conducted the funeral arrangements.
