    • James.-Mrs. Betsey James (née Turner) was born in Mount Barker, S. A.,Nov. 3, 1843, and was married at the age of nineteen to Joseph Holmon James, residing first at Ballarat, Vic. About twenty-five  years ago Brother and Sister James came to live at Warburton, having accepted the message at Ballarat under the preaching of Pastors M. C. Israel and W. A. Colcord. The message meant much to them. Brother James, the husband of our deceased sister, preceded her in death by about seventeen years, faithful to the last, and both sleep to-day in the Warburton Cemetery, awaiting the call of the Life-giver. Sister James was a  great worker and loving this message
      as she did, was always anxious that others should learn its binding claims and experience the blessings which come with its acceptance. She was the mother of five children,Dr. William Howard James, George Garsed James, Thomas Herbert James, Elizabeth Fisher Prismal, and Ethel Hermione James. Sister James and her husband were the first shareholders in the Echo Publishing Company; which later became the Signs Publishing Company. They had accepted present truth before a camp-meeting had been held in this field. It is splendid to hear Sister James' children speak of her as both a mother and friend, and she has always been an honoured and respected member of the community. We feel that a real mother in Israel has been taken from us ; but we feel that we have the assurance that we shall meet her again in, the kingdom of God, in the inheritance eternal, when -the bars of Death are broken forever. Words of comfort were spoken by the writer from the scripture found in Isaiah 40: 1-8. We laid our aged sister to rest in the sweet assurance of the blessed hope.

  • Notes 
    • Violet Turner's Elizabeth (Bessie) who married Mr. James and lived at Mount Pleasant, near Ballarat. They had a family of five but as they lived in Victoria, we did not see them until they were grown up. There was Will (a doctor of Warburton Sanitarium), Garsed, Elizabeth (Tizzie) who married Mr. Prismall (an engineer), and Hermione (Hermie) who died unmarried. It is to our great regret that these cousins of ours were brought up so far away.
