Death of a Mudgee Identity. MR. M. J. SHEPPARD. An old identity of Mudgee, in the person of Mr. Montgomerie Jennings Sheppard, passed away suddenly at Pittwater Road, Manly, on Monday, June 25. The deceased gentleman resided in Mudgee for some forty years, conducting a saddlery business, and later as Sheppard and Co., a fancy goods, newspaper, and stationery business. Mr. Sheppard's father and mother were among the early pioneers of Mudgee, his father owning the first tannery (in the early days) at West End. His late brother, Mr. Michael Sheppard, was the proprietor and editor of the first Hill End newspaper, "Western Post." Mr. Sheppard was born at Cork, Ireland, and came to this country with his parents when very young.

He interested himself in many mining speculations at Gulgong, Hill End, and Hargraves, and took a keen interest in politics. The funeral took place from Waugh and Co.'s private chapel, Corso, Manly, on Wednesday. The chief mourners were Mr. M. J. Sheppard, post and telegraph master, Taree (son), Mr. W. C. Sheppard, Public School, Belmore (son), Mr. G. E. Sheppard, Public School, Wollongong (son), Mrs. H. F. Milne, Public School, Rylstone (daughter), Mrs. Charles Larkin, ''Como Valley," Ben Bullen (daughter), Mrs. J. Meier, Parramatta (niece), Mr. Charles Sheppard, Great Eastern Cable Co. (nephew), Mr. and Mrs. P. S. Garling, manager Hean's manufacturing chemists, Sydney (nephew). Mr. George Adams, of the Fresh Food and Ice Co., who had been foreman at Mr. Sheppard's saddlery business for many years, attended at the graveside, also Major Williams and others. The only child absent was Quartermaster Sergeant Charles Sheppard, who is in charge of the Commissariat Department at Harefield Hospital, England. Mr. Sheppard had attained the great age of 83 years. His wife predeceased him at Mudgee 20 years ago. The last sad obsequies were conducted by the Rev. Stoddart (Manly), the remains being interred in the Church of England portion of the Manly cemetery. Two of Mr. Sheppard's sisters still reside at Mudgee - Mrs. Geo. Arnold, of Gladstone-street, and Mrs. Geo. Tomkins, Douro-street, while Mr. Albert Sheppard, of the Mudgee Post Office, is a nephew. Much sympathy will be felt for the family and relatives by their many friends throughout the Mudgee district (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 12 July 1917, page 8).
