Burra Record (SA) Wednesday 2 June 189731418,62174

We have this week to record the death of
the late Mr. John Pearce, who died at his
residence, Chapel-street, Kooringa, on Friday
last. The deceased gentleman was well and
favourably known. He was born in Torrenton,
North Devon in the year 1803, and was there  
fore 94 years of age. In October 16, 1848,
the deceased arrived in South Australia in the
ship Santiphore, landing in Port Adelaide. He
was a mason by trade, and for some time after
his arrival in the colony he worked for Mr.
Shepherd, and subsequently went to Mintaro
where he again resumed mason operations.
Like many others, Mr. Pearce went to the
Bendigo gold diggings, and after a short space
of time he returned and commenced farming
pursuits at Gum Creek 33 years since and was
moderately successful. About 19 years ago
he sold the farm and took up land at Baldina.
He has, however, lived a retired life, for the
past 15 years. He leaves four sons — Mr.
John Pearce, Hundred of Pirie ; Mr. Henry
Pearce, Mount Bryan Flat; Mr. Samuel
Pearce, Leighton ; and Mr. Richard Pearce,
Burra, all excepting the last named being
married. Mrs. Tickle, late of Yongola is also
his eldest daughter and mother of Mrs. E. W.
Crewes, Kooringa. Ann and Emma are not
married, and like their brother Richard, re-
side at home. Four sons and two daughters
came out from the old country, and Emma was
born at Mintaro. He leaves 35 grandchildren
and 70 great grandchildren. The deceased
when in Torrenton, worked with the late Mr.
John Dunn, of Mount Barker, and the late. W.
Cotton of Alberton, Adelaide. The funeral
took place on Monday afternoon, the Rev. J.
Simpson officiating at the grave.
