THE Members of the various Temperance
Organizations aro requested to attend the FUNERAL of the late JOHN PATIENT SMITH, to move from his late residence. Merivale-street, South Brisbane, at 4.30 p.m. THIS DAY. (Satur- day). ----------------------------------------------------------------- The Brisbane Courier 16 December 1882
In the WILL of JOHN PATIENT SMITH, late
of Brisbane, in the Colony of Queensland, Tin- smith, Deceased.
Notice is hereby given that, at the expira- tion of fourteen days from the publication hereof, application will be made to the Supreme Court of Queensland, in its Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction, that PROBATE of the last WILL and TESTAMENT of the above-named John Patient Smith, deceased, may be granted to Jane Smith, Eli Elijah Smith, and Jesse David Sawyer, all of Brisbane aforesaid, the Executrix and Executors in the said Will named,
Dated this Sixteenth day of December, 1882.
T. MACDONALD-PATERSON. Proctor for the said Applicants, Queen Street Brisbane. 8117
IN the SUPREME COURT of QUEENSLAND ---------------------------------------------------------------------- The death of John Patient Smith, of Merivale Street, Brisbane occurred on Friday 8 December 1882. He was 66 years at the time of his death. The cause of death - malignant disease of the liver. He was buried at South Brisbane Cemetery (Dutton Park) the following day by Methodist Minister Rev Henry Jones. Location of his grave is Portion 11B allotment 84. Unfortunately there is no evidence of his grave in present times. Huge floods had devastated this area in 1893 and again throughout the 1900's. The flood waters reached high levels in the grounds of the cemetery and many of the graves and headstones disappeared. The location of this grave is in the lower area on the river side and consequently would have been effected by the flood waters.
Weeks before he died, John Patient made out his Last Will and Testament. He appointed his wife Jane, his son Eli and his son-in-law Jesse David Sawyer as Executrix and Executors, respectively. He left all machinery, tools of whatsoever nature and description used by him in his business of tinsmith and ironworker, and also all chandeliers, lamps, branch candlesticks, lanterns and all other such like articles which he kept for the purpose of letting out for lighting private parties, assemblies or the like, to his three sons, Albert Jonas, Marshall Moore and Alfred Bean jointly. Jane, his wife, was provided for by the remaining investments for the rest of her life. Upon her death all remaining property was to be sold and distributed evenly amongst his children. It is noted that there was no mention of any particular land in his will. It is unclear whether he owned the land where he conducted his business or whether he had leased it at the time.
