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).

During the war and afterwards he was one of the foremost workers in all patriotic movements, and acted as hon. secretary to the local repatriation committee and the various war loan committees for the Rylstone district.

HERBERT MILNE. Universal regret is felt in Rylstone district at the death of Herbert Milne, which took place on Monday night. Deceased was only 55 years of age, and for quite a number of years was headmaster at the Rylstone Public School. He suffered from an internal complaint which caused his death. The late Mr. Milne was a native of Mudgee, his father being the late Robt. Milne, who conducted a cordial factory here for many years. His widow was Miss Alicia Sheppard, daughter of the late Monty Sheppard, of Mudgee. Deceased leaves a widow and the following family : Herbert, teacher at Deepwater; Robt., a bank official; George, school teacher at Blackfriars College; Jessie, Rylstone. The remains were interred in the Presbyterian portion of the Rylstone Cemetery on Wednesday, the funeral being largely attended. The Rev. Pacey read the burial service, and Mr. W. C. Thomson had charge of the funeral arrangements (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 14 February 1924, page 21).

Note:

Late Mr. H. F. Milne RYLSTONE DISTRICT PAYS HOMAGE TO AN ESTEEMED TOWNSMAN. With the death of Mr. Herbert F. Milne, which occurred at the Rylstone public school residence on Monday evening last, the town loses one of its most esteemed citizens. A few weeks before Christmas the deceased became ill, and was attended by Dr. Hansard, whose treatment enabled the deceased to recuperate sufficiently to visit Sydney for a specialist's attention. There being nothing reassuring as to the deceased gentleman's condition, he returned to Rylstone with Mrs. Milne in the new year, and the end was not unexpected. The late Mr. Milne was 41 years in the Education Department, and as a pupil teacher one of his first appointments was at Rylstone. In later years he was transferred, following other appointments, to Emmaville, from which place he re-turned 14 years ago to assume con-trol as headmaster of the Rylstone public school. Rylstone district was privileged to enjoy the benefits of Mr. Milne's public spiritedness and citizenship. He was a highly intelligent man and was always prominent in public interests without clashing with any section of citizens. He was strictly honest and sincere in purpose. His own leisure was devoted to doing good for the community, collectively or individually. It was a sacrifice all the more to be appreciated and valued when it is realised that he was cut off in the prime of his life, being 55 years old. There could be no man more versatile in the occupancy of honorary positions, and certainly no one more thorough in discharging them. At different times he held no fewer than three secretarial positions at once. He was identified with the Rylstone Literary Institute, Rifle Club, Hospital, Tennis Club, and Repatriation Association. In connection with the last named body, there was more work allotted to the deceased than to the other members put together. During the war Mr Millie was secretary of every patriotic effort. He proved a born organiser, and displayed an enthusiasm for the work which could not be excelled. Every returned district soldier honors the deceased, and will retain a sense of perpetual gratitude to him. The funeral, which was held on Wednesday afternoon was one of the largest and most representative seen in Rylstone. The cortege was preceded by the school children, who marched to the cemetery. The many beautiful wreaths placed upon the casket were eloquent tributes of a life well spent, and the high esteem in which the deceased was held. They were from : The Repatriation Association, Presbyterian Church, Tennis Club, Literary Institute, Returned Soldiers' League, Parents and Citizens' Association, and many individuals. The funeral service was conducted by the Rev. S. G Pacey (Presbyterian) and Rev. W. V. Thomson (Anglican). The deceased is survived by a widow, one daughter (Miss Jessie Milne), and three sons, viz., Messrs. Bert Milne, public school, Todrington ; Robert, Australian Bank of Commerce, Balranald; and George, Rylstone (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 21 February 1924, page 25).
