Our obituary recently chronicled the death of Mr. James Gibson, storekeeper, of Bowden. Mr. Gibson was, we learn, one of the pioneer colonists, having arrived here in theship Dumfries in 1839. He was born in Northumberland, and for nine years before leaving England he was head gamekeeper to Lord Frederick Fitzalarence over the Etal estate, having been previously inthe service of Sir Francis Sitwell, of Barmah Castle, in a similar capacity for a period of 11 years. On arriving in this colony he was appointed Park-keeper, which position ho held till the office was abolished. He settled at Bowden, where for several years he carried on a store. He was one of the first Councillors in the Hindmarsh District Council, and that Council, we understand, was the first established. He was an active member of the Scotch Free Church, and for many years past had been .an elder of Chalmers Church. He had a good constitution, and enjoyed general good health until within a month of his death, when he was attacked with a very painful disease, which proved I fatal, and he died at the age of 78 years. He was very highly respected for his large-hearted hospitality and unassuming benevolence, and will be greatly missed by his neighbors and friends. His funeral took place on Sunday, 31st December, at the Hindmarsh Cemetery, and was very largely attended. After the mourning coaches containing the relatives of the deceased, there followed 46 vehicles and from 150 to 200 inhabitants of the townships, walking four abreast.

John soon moved to be a pioneer settler at Willunga where he became a magistrate at Willunga Court and a councillor on the first Willunga District Council.
Later, among other things, he was a horseracing official with the SAJC, a joint proprietor of the Noarlunga flour mill, and held the posts of Colonial Storekeeper and Superintendent of the Public Cemetery (West Terrace).
He married Lucy Fisher, daughter of Sir James Hurtle Fisher, and the couple returned permanently to England in 1855. They had three children but there are no descendants.
