     The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the Alexandra and Yea Standard published in Alexandra, Victoria 18 September 1936:
Obituary
MR. TIMOTHY CREIGHTON

After a long and useful life, Mr. Timothy Creighton, late of Yarck, died at his home at Mansfield on Saturday, September 5. The late Mr. Creighton was born in Cumberland, England, 86 years ago, and he came to Victoria with his parents, in the sailing ship "Europa" in 1852. At that time it took at least four months to cover the distance by ship, but to-day it can be done by aeroplane in a few days. On arriving at Melbourne, the family was met by a bullock dray and transported to Bundoora, where Mr. Creighton’s father obtained employment. Some years later the family selected land at Hazelglen, Arthur's Creek. When a young man the late Mr. Timothy Creighton went to Yarck, took up land, and lived there for over 50 years. He reared a family of nine children. Mr. Creighton was a successful landman and a good man for his district. In his younger days he took a keen interest in horses, and he ranked with the best judges of light and heavy horses in the country, and bred and exhibited many prize-winners. Furthermore, he was a great rough rider and was quite at home on the roughest of horses.

Before the railway was constructed to Mansfield, the deceased brought many drafts of sheep to Newmarket by road; in fact, he was entrusted with most of the sheep despatched from time to time. His reminiscences of olden times were most interesting.

His services were always available when there was sickness in the district, and he would willingly turn out day or night to assist his neighbours. Moreover, up to the time he left Yarck he acted as local undertaker free of charge, and most of the burials in the Yarck cemetery, particularly in the early days, were conducted by him.

Mr. Creighton took a keen interest in all local activities, which included membership of the Alexandra Agricultural Society, and his long practical experience was of great value. He and his family will long be remembered in the districts, as he was an honourable and first-class citizen in every sense of the word.

The burial took place at Yarck, and the funeral was one of the largest seen in the district.5
