Obituary

The Horsham Times Victoria Tuesday January 19th 1937 MAN FOUND DEAD - WITH REVOLVER NEARBY The death of Mr John McDonald 70 years, a well known resident of the Amphitheatre district was reported to the police on Friday afternoon. Mr McDonald who had not enjoyed good health for some time, left his home in the morning for the purpose of going to his brothers place some short distance away. When he arrived there he went to a shed and divesting himself of his clothing lay down. Later he was found shot, a revolver being by his side. Apparently death was instantaneous.
