Burrum Shire Councillor
Death has removed still another of the old pioneers of the district, in the person of Mr John Kersnovske, whose demise occurred yesterday evening in his 74th year. A farmer by occupation, the late Mr Kersnovske was also widely known for the interest he took in local government affairs. His bent in this direction found expression in his occupancy of a seat as a member for No 3 division on the Burrum Shire Council over a period of many years.
Although not given to long speeches in debate, he had a sound knowledge of local authority law and was more a man of action, preferring to serve his division by the improvements he was able to effect through his authority as councillor.
Mr Kersnovske was a member of the Burrum Shire Council up to the time of his death. Previous to his election as a member for No 3 division he served as a member of the defunct Antigua Shire Council.
The greater portion of his life was spent on the land, where he engaged in general farming, canegrowing and dairying at his residence, Central Farm, Yengarie.
He leaves a widow, Mrs Jane Kersnovske, and a family of six sons - Messrs Walter and John (Maryborough), William (Gooroolba), Thomas (Theodore), Robert and Andrew (Yengarie) - and three daughters Mesdames J. Halliday (Mungar Junction), N. Harley (Monto) and Miss J. Kersnovske (Yengarie).
One daughter predeceased him. The late Mr Kersnovske is also survived by two brothers, Messrs William (Mungar Junction) and Michael Kersnovske (Scarness). Two brothers and one sister predeceased him.
