      MR. F. J. MARCHMENT.
      The death occurred suddenly at his home at Redbank, Hastings River, on Monday, 2nd March, of Mr. F. J. Marchment, aged 60 years. Deceased was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. F. Marchment, and was born at Port Macquarie. He was married at the Church of England, Kendall, in 1909, to Miss Louisa Wilson, youngest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. James Wilson, who went to the Comboyne from Berry some 38 years ago and carried on farming pursuits. There were two daughters to the union, Mrs. R. Churchill (Long Flat) and Mrs. Cecil Noakes (Oxley Island). Mr. and Mrs. Marchment, who engaged in farming and dairying, resided on their farm at Redbank, Wauchope, all their married life. Mr. Marchment hardly, knew what it was to be attended by a doctor, and died suddenly while at his work. His wife and daughters will mourn a devoted husband and father, whose passing is regretted by a large circle of friends. The late Mr. Marchment was educated at Mt. Victoria Grammar School, and was later apprenticed to the saddling trade with the old firm of J. M. Gregory and Sons, of Sydney. He later moved to the Richmond River, where he lived for many years, and there distinguished himself as one of the finest pigeon shots of that time. He was also known on the Hastings as a fine shot, having bagged many ducks and quail. At one time deceased worked for Mr. C. E. Wright, saddler, of Wauchope, but found indoor life irksome, and took to dairying pursuits, which he has followed for 36 years. He led a quiet and reserved life with his wife and family, taking no part in public affairs. Sisters of deceased are Mesdames E. Bacon and F. V. Browning; and brothers Messrs. Donald, Henry, Robert, William, John and Stanley (deceased). The funeral service was conducted by Canon Symonds, who officiated at the interment in the Church of England portion of the new Wauchope cemetery, where a large number of friends congregated to witness the last sad rites.
