Graham, Robert

Death has removed from our midst an old and much respected settler and Crimean veteran, in the person of Mr Robert Graham, who departed this life on Wednesday last, after a somewhat lingering illness, at the ripe age of 79.

He was buried on Friday last, the Rev. W. H. Bawden officiating in the unavoidable absence of Mr Pattullo.

Deceased came to the Colony some 16 years ago and settled in Nol Road where he remained until his end. He fought in the Crimean War from the first till the last, and was during the last few years in receipt of a pension from the Imperial Government.

He was a native of Glasgow. He leaves behind him a widow and a grown up family of sons and daughters.
