On Monday, Mr. Henry Ashcroft, of Forbes, and erstwhile resident of Cudal, passed over to the great majority. The deceased gentleman was born near Campbelltown in 1827, and was therefore in his 69th year. He was for 23 years a resident of Cudal, but removed to Forbes some three years ago. He was the father of 12 children, 10 of whom, together with his wife survive him. Five of his children are resident in the district, viz., Mrs. W. Dean of Gregra, Mrs. W. Jenkins, Mrs. C. McLean, and Messrs. H. and W. Ashcroft, of Cudal. His remains were interred in the Church of England portion of the Forbes cemetery the same afternoon, a large number of relatives and friends being present to pay a last tribute of respect to the departed gentleman.
