455. Claude Rea


It is with regret that I record the passing away of Mr. Claude Rea, Dulacca, in St. Vincent's Private Hospital, Toowoomba, last Wednesday. The late Mr. Rea was well-known all over this district in the last 20 years, being In the butchering trade, and on the land.  He associated himself with all forward movements in the town, and was a keen member of the School Committee. He leaves a widow and one daughter, also brothers in Ipswich and Sydney, and sisters at North Dulacca and Sydney.

Mr Oliver Cobcroft, 79 years of age, was found dead on Wednesday morning at the residence of his son, Mr Colin Eugene Cobcroft, "Condon," Putty. It appears that the deceased, who was a pensioner, was in Singleton last week, returning home on Saturday. He had a cold, and complained on Tuesday night of a pain in his chest and right side. A mustard poultice was applied, and appeared to give relief. About 10.30. on Wednesday the son and daughter-in-law went to the milking yard, leaving deceased in bed. Returning half an hour later, Mrs Cobroft found deceased dead at the foot of a small flight of steps between the house and kitchen. Deceased's wife died four years ago, and he is survived by four sons and one daughter. The Coroner (Mr A. Morrisen) opened an inquest at Putty yesterday and after certain evidence had been taken the hearing was adjourned until Wednesday afternoon next.
