Evening Post 11 November 1929
The death occurred recently at his son''s residence at Pokeno, near Auckland, of Mr. J. J. Eason, an old identity connected with both Australia, and New Zealand. The late Mr. Eason was born at Buningyong, near Ballarat, in 1850, and he always had some very vivid memories of the goldfields. He was present at the departure of the ill-fated Burke and Wills expedition. In 1863, Mr. Eason arrived in Dunedin with his father, entering the wool trade. Here he married the second daughter of the late Charles Bentley, who, arriving in the John Wickliffe in 1848, was one of the early colonists of Otago. For over 30 years he was manager of Glen Craigie fellmongery (on the site of the present city abattoir). For about ten years he was in business with his sons in Johnsonville. At the end of this time, about 1916, his wife, died. After he withdrew from business he lived at his son''s farm near Auckland, taking, up to the time of his death, an active interest in affairs. He was extremely proud of his long connection with the M.U.I.O.O.F., extending over 61 years. He leaves five sons and one daughter, eleven grandchildren, and two great grandchildren.
