John Ryan                          1821-1890

John was the son of Stephen Ryan and Julia Nagle.  His tombstone reads:

‘In memory of John Ryan, native of Co Tipperary, Ireland, who departed this life at Bacchus Marsh July 13th, 1890, age 69 years.

Oh think of me as you pass by

As you are now so once was I

As I am now you must be

Prepare in time to follow me’

These are the words on John’s tombstone.
