Mr. J. C. A. Nitschke

Following an illness which confined
him to his bed for sixteen months, Mr.
J. C. A. Nitschke, 82, one of the older
settlers of the district, died at his
home, Millicent, on Friday morning,
February l. He was born at Branden-
burg, Germany, and was the eldest son
of the late Mr. Johann Christian
Nitschke, formerly of Mount Gambier
and he came to Australia with his
parents in 1858, the family first settling
at Echunga, where they resided for
several years, afterwards removing to
Harrogate, where Mr. J. C. A. Nitschke
farmed on his own account for three
years. In 1868 a move was made to
Mount Gambier, where Mr. Nitschke
in conjunction with his father and bro-
thers, purchased a property from the
late Dr. Brown, of Moorak, which was
worked conjointly until 1880, when 200
acres of the property was made over to
him by his lather (who died In 1901).
Mr. Nitschke was amongst the first
settlers in the Millicent district, select-
ing the property at Nangula, now
being worked by his son, Mr. A. G.

ment of the district, and was
most public spirited. For many
years he was a member of the old May-
urra District Council, and was a
founder and director of the Murrim-
bum cheese factory. He was also a
prime mover in the foundation of the
Thyne Memorial Hospital, and was a
trustee and a member of the board of
management for nearly 25 years.

an expert ploughman, and often
proudly displayed a gold medal he had
won as the champion ploughman of the
Mount Gambier district. Mr. Nitschke,
in addition, was a committeeman and
keen worker for the agricultural so-
ciety for a long period, an active mem-
ber of the old Fanners' and Producers
Political League, as well as many other
organisations. In 1880 Mr. Nitschke
married Wilhelmina Louisa, eiaest sur-
