October 18, 1918
On Saturday, at Brimpaen, there passed away quietly in his sleep a loyal
colonist in the person of Mr John FREEMAN, 80 years of age, and a native of
Sweden. The deceased who succumbed to bronchitis, was married in Stawell 50
years ago ; and 10 years later moved to Brimpaen, where he settled till the
end of his life ; leaving a family of seven sons and seven daughters and a
widow to mourn their loss. The deceased was a very successful grower of
excellent wool from an average flock of about 4000 sheep.
