There passed away in Auckland last week a well known resident of Akaroa, Mrs Jesson. Deceased was born in Flea Bay just sixty years ago, being the second daughter of the late Mr Israel Rhodes. She lived practically all her life in Akaroa. She was married twice, her first husband being the celebrated "whip" coach driver, Mr Joe Me Farlane. She was married later Ito Mr W. Jesson. She leaves five children, four by her first marriage, two sons Messrs J. and A. McFarlane and two daughters. She leaves one son by her second marriage. Mrs Jesson sold her property in Jolie- street north about two years ago to the Akaroa Buter Facory Company, and the new facory is erected on the section. She has been absent from the Peninsula about fourteen months visiting her married daughters in Australia and Auckland. Much sympathy has been felt for Mrs Jesson in her long and painful illness.
