the Shoalhaven News, NSW, Australia28 January 1933William James Sheather had an obituary appear in the Shoalhaven News, NSW, Australia, on Saturday, 28 January 1933 as follows:
William James Sheather, aged 70, of Bundaroo Street Bowral, was fatally injured on Thursday afternoon of last week. While proceeding along Centennial Road with Mr Roy Norman in a cart, deceased stood up when a bag in the bottom of the cart caught fire. The jolting of the cart caused him to lose his balance, and although Mr Norman endeavoured to prevent him from falling, he overbalanced and fell heavily to the roadway. He was conscious when Mr Norman went to his assistance. The ambulance was summoned, and deceased was taken to Dr Herrington, who pronounced life extinct. A post mortem was held on Friday, when it was discovered that spinal injuries were the cause of death. Mr Sheather, who was a butcher, had been employed in various businesses during his long residence in Bowral.4

NewspaperDateContent
the Camden News, Camden, NSW, AustraliaG3 November 1921Frederick Sheather was mentioned in an article in the Camden News, Camden, NSW, AustraliaG, on Thursday, 3 November 1921 as follows:

PRESENTATION TO MR. SHEATHER.

For his 20 years as Town Clerk of Campbelltown, Mr. Fred. Sheather has earned the six months leave of absence granted him by the Aldermen of the Municipality of Campbelltown. With another five years added to his public service life, Mr. Sheather has been a resident of Campbelltown, and whatever function has been held in the township, his name has been conspicuously noticed, not as a figure-head but as a worker. For 20 years it has been said that Mr. Sheather has been the back-bone of Campbelltown. Apart from the Council giving our worthy citizen the long holiday he rightly deserves, the general pub lic recognising his many services would not allow him to go without taking with him some little token of esteem showing in a small way their appreciation of his residence amongst them.

This function took the form of a smoke concert in the Campbelltown Town Hall, on Monday evening, when between 60 and 70. gentlemen sat around tables in banquet array to wish Mr. Sheather a very enjoyable holi day, and also to his wife who is accompanying him on an ektended tour thro' Tasmania. His worship the Mayor, Ald. C. N. Hannaford, opened the night 's proceedings by saying it was very pleasing to see such a representative gathering to wish the guest of the evening, who is sitting on my left, a very enjoyable holiday, and may he be spared to return to again take up his duties as Town Clerk of Campbelltown. (Applause). The chairman then asked all, to drink to the toast of His Majesty the King. All joined in singing the National Anthem, Mr. O. S. Frost (Camden) playing the accompaniment.

After the reading of the apologies, Mr. M. Brien (Camden) greatly pleased the attend ance by his rendering 'Blow Blow,' a beaut iful song, the words being by Shakespeare. For his encore Mr. Brien was asked to sing by special request 'The Trumpeter.'

Ex-Mayor and Ald. Fred Moore was asked to propose the toast of 'Our Guest,' which words brought loud applause. Mr. Moore, in addressing the Mayor and gentlemen, said: The duty has fallen to my lot to propose the toast of ' Our Guest, ' which I must say gives me great pleasure, and you will, all under stand I am speaking right from my heart. In our guest, Mr. Sheather, I must speak as I find him, and give honour where honour is due. The citizens of Campbelltown, and the friends of Mr. Sheather are doing the right thing in recognising his services. Mr. Sheather has held the most responsible position in this town for 20 years as Town Clerk. When I first knew him he was assisting Mr. McGlynn to publish the 'Campbelltown Herald,'' and at the demise of the late Mr. Alex. Munro, put in an application for the position of Town Clerk, which the aldermen accepted, believing Sheather was a good fellow. The job at that time was not such a big job, but there was a great deal to do. Mr. Sheather started to build up the affairs of the Council which were bad. However, with hard work he managed to put the Council on a sound foundation, and set the books up properly. All the time he was assisting the Council he was assisting himself and through hard study, passed every examination, fitting himself for a much higher position than he holds to-day. (Hear, hear). Mr. Sheather has refused higher positions simply because of his love for the old town. As a citizen he has done his duty, this we know by the large family he is credited with. (Laughter). This Council of which he is Town Clerk, ranks as the soundest and clean est in the State, and it is greatly due to Mr. Sheather that the municipal rates for Camp belltown are the lowest in N.S.W. (Applause). Mr. Sheather is not only the man at the wheel of the Council, but our Show flourished for many years under his supervision, with the assistance of the late Hon. John Kidd; Campbelltown is a small place to conduct such a large show and the credit is due to Mr. Sheather. Our guest has proved himself a good townsman, he has done his duty in every respect. There has been no movemont in Campbelltown but what he has helped with his valuable assistance. Campbelltown must be proud to have a man like Mr. Sheather at the helm. Mr. Moore concluded his address by wishing Mr. and Mrs. Sheather a very pleasant holiday, and may they both be long spared to reside in our midst. He hoped and trusted Mr. Sheather would return to resume his duties as Town Clerk a new man. (Ap plause).

Mr. H. V. Denham when asked to speak in support of the toast, said he was pleased with the remarks of Mr. Moore, and although being practically a new-comer to Campbelltown, nevertheless recognised the great qualities of Mr. Sheather. He found Mr. Sheather ever ready to assist in all philantropic and patriotic affairs, a man of great calibre, and although he was deprived of having the pleas ure of going to the seat of war, he fought for country here in Campbelltown, and did the best a man could do for the Empire. He was indeed very pleased to have the pleasure of speaking of a friend and a man. (Applause) Dr. Mawson said in supporting the toast, he had known Mr. Sheather for 13 years, be ing associated with the Agricultural Society, School of Arts, Choral Society, and the Ceme tery. In fact he could think of nothing Mr. Sheather has not been associated with. Every movement would have fallen flat without him. We could say Mr. Sheather carried the baby to a large extent in reference to the School of Arts and Agricultural Society ; his univer sal and friendly manner made him extremely popular with every man and woman in this town. He wished Mrs. Sheather and Mr. Sheather a very enjoyable holiday, and hoped Mr. Sheather would return fit to do another 20 years as Town Clerk.

Ald. Kershler supporting the toast, said the 20 years Mr. Sheather has been Town Clerk he had been a alderman, and remembered when Mr. Sheather first became Council Clerk hawking a council's cheque round the town to cash, the amount was only £1, but the banks would not look at it; that was an instance to show the bad state of affairs the council was in when Mr. Sheather became their clerk. Outside the council Mr. Sheather has done a lot of good, no other man in Camp belltown has done as much. He wished Mr. and Mrs. Sheather a bonny trip wherever they go. (Applause).

Mr. S. B. Day said he wished Mr. Sheather and his wife every success, he could bear out the testimony of Mr. Sheather 's good charac ter; he knew of no town, who had a man like Mr. Sheather to go to for information, which was always so nicely given on every occasion.

The Mayor also spoke in the highest strains of Mr. Sheather, after which. Mr. Blew, North Sydney, sang a splendid song in equally splendid voice, and 'Up From Somerset' 'for his encore. Dr. Mawson rendered admirably ' Saint George of England,' and for his encore 'Off to Philadelphia in the Morning.'

All rose in earnestness to drink to the health of Mr. Sheather, followed by musical honors 'For he's a jolly good fellow.'

Mr. Sheather was greeted with applause when he rose to respond. 'Mr. Moore, Mr. Mayor and gentlemen. I have always had the pleasure and privilege of speaking in the Council, but am at a loss to-night what to say in response to all the nice things spoken about me. I will not go back in detail to my early days in Campbelltown, which in course of time I took up the position of Town Clerk, since then I have seen ups and downs of the Council, but it was a pleasure in my occu pation in public life to do my best, as I had the right sort of men behind me. (Applause).

I am at a loss what to say further. I fully appreciate the remarks of the speakers, and should God spare me the privilege to return to my duties, I hope to do better in the future than in the past. (Hear, hear). I have made mistakes, and got into ruts, but I always tried to do my work with the best intentions to attain the object in view. Mr. Sheather spoke of the valuable assistance given him by Mrs. Sheather, and every movement he under took to help, his wife bore her share of the burden. Mr. Sheather concluded with the remarks : 'I thank you gentlemen most heartily. ' '

Musical items followed, Mr. Kitt sang 'O Flower Divine, ' ' and with Mr. Brien render ed 'Watchman, What of the Night? ' for his encore. Major Shaw (Narellan) sang 'I am a Friar of Orders Grey,' and for his encore a 'French ditty. ' ' Mr. H. Wilkinson followed with an appropriate song, 'Another little drink won't do us any harm,' and 'Gallants of England'' for his encore.

The Mayor in making the presentation of a wallet of notes, containing £65, said ' ' Mr. Sheather, on behalf of the citizens of Camp belltown, it gives me very much pleasure in, presenting to you this wallet of notes as a mark and token of esteem, appreciating in a very small way the valuable services you have rendered to the township and district of Campbelltown. ' ' The inscription on the wallet read: ? 'Presented to Fred. Sheather, Esq., J.P., by the citizens of Campbelltown, as a token of esteem, 1898 ? 1921. He does the decent thing. '

Mr. Sheather in accepting the wallet said this completely took the wind out of him, and he accepted the present in the same spirit in which it was given him. His good wife will share with him the contents. Before Mr. Sheather could say any more 'For he's a jolly good fellow' was again accorded him in rich masculine voices.

Speeches on Local Government, and further songs concluded a very enjoyable evening.3

SHEATHER-BOOTH.

Miss Lois Booth, who was married to Mr. Douglas Sheather last night, showed originality in her wedding plans by choosing crownless glass hats for her two bridesmaids and little flower girl, and a caravan tour for her honeymoon. The caravan is a trailer, fully equipped, and they will head north.

The bride is the eldest daughter of Mrs. J. Wentworth Booth, of Mosman, and the bridegroom is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. T. B. Sheather, of Mosman.

The bride chose white angel skin, appliqued with a pattern of silver roses, for her gown, and a long train fell from her waist.

MRS. DOUGLAS SHEATHER (right), who, before her marriage last night, was Miss Lou Booth, with her bridesmaids, MISSES BETTY and NORMA BOOTH, and flower-girl, MOINA TULLOCH.

A simple bouquet and a coronet holding in place her tulle veil were of lily-of-the-valley.

The bridesmaid's frocks of leaf green net, self spotted with silk, featured the same theme of design in the train falling from the waist, and the frock worn by the flower girl, Moina Tulloch, was identical. The bridesmaids were Misses Betty and Norma Booth, sisters of the bride, and they carried cyclamens, which were also scattered on the edge of their trains.

Mr. Colin Sheather was best man, and Mr. Bruce Dixon was groomsman. Rev. L. A. Purnell officiated at the ceremony, which took place at the Presbyterian Church, Mosman.5
