Within a month of her 88th birthday there passed away at her residence, Port Denison, Dongarra, another of the State's old pioneers, in the person of Mrs Emma Wilton. The deceased lady was born at Cambridge, England, on May 29th, 1851, and came to Western Australia in 1852 with her parents (Mr. and Mrs. E. Eversden) in the ship 'Sabina.' From the time she was nine years old until 1878 the late Mrs. Wilton lived at Greenougb, being married on April 8th, 1874, to the late Mr. Robert Abel Wilton, who predeceased her on February 18th, 1932. In 1878, with her three small children, she went with her husband to the Murchison. where they started a sheep run, which was carried on until 1892. During this period of loneliness and danger, the remaining members of the her family, numbering eleven, were born. There were five sons and six daughters, of whom eight are still living, seven of them being present at her funeral. During her residence on the Murchison, the deceased lady and her young family, were constantly surrounded by natives, but they never suffered the slightest harm, her kindly nature being a safeguard in this respect. After returning to Greenough at the end of 1892, to take up farming, her husband suffered from ill-health which more or less affected him until his death. The late Mrs. Wilton engaged in maternity nursing in Greenough and the neighbourhood. In 1919 the family removed to Dongarra, where deceased continued to reside. About twelve years ago Mrs. Wilton was afflicted with blindness, and after having led such an active life the restrictions which this affliction placed on her energies was severely felt by her. One sister (Mrs. Charles Douglas, of Leederville), who is now 78 years of age, survives her. Her descendants include thirty-seven grandchildren and twenty greatgrand children. Six of her grandchildren predeceased her. The funeral took place on Monday morning last at Greenough, the Rev. R. G. Pym, of Dongarra, officiating. The chief, mourners were Mr. and Mrs. T.

Although this is his first visit to Perth, in fact the first time that he has been south of Carnamah, in the whole of his 62 years, Mr. Robert Wilton, of Yuna, stated to a representative of the 'West Australian' last week that he is not greatly impressed with city life and would prefer to be rambling through the bush with his favorite gun. Born at Greenough, Mr. Wilton acquired a taste for solitude in his early years whilst shepherding his father's flocks on Gooroowell Station, and frankly admits that he is 'not at his best amongst a crowd of people.' 'I have never seen a tramcar until this week,' he said, with a smile, 'and had never ridden in one until last night, but I am not exactly out of date, as I do most of my travelling by car, and all my farming work is done by tractors, although I leave the driving of them to the younger men.
Powerfully-built and carrying his years easily, Mr. Wilton looks a picture of health, although he states that a bout of rheumatic fever has stiffened his joints somewhat. He admitted that he had suffered from rheumatism for years, but claimed to have cured himself by bee stings incurred whilst robbing the nests of the wild bees.
As a shearer in the days of the blades, and for a few seasons with the machines, he has 'undressed the woollies' throughout a large portion of the State's sheep country, and long before the advent of motor trucks or even the camel teams which preceded them, he used to cart wool to the port of Gerald ton with horse teams. With the exception of seven years as a fettler on the railways, and a brief experience of prospecting trips, on one of which he almost died for want of water, Mr. Wilton has been chiefly engaged in farming pursuits. At present he farms 2,600 acres at Yuna, where he produced over: 9,000 bushels of wheat this season. Married since 1897, he has seven sons and a daughter, and Mrs. Wilton is still supervising the running of her own property at Howatharra. 'The buildings in Perth are well worth seeing,' he remarked as he departed, 'but when I leave had a look round the Sou'-West I'll be quite ready to go back to the farm at Yuna.'
