Death of Mr Joseph Aarons
By the death of Mr. Joseph Aarons, which took place at his residence, Grassmere, Wellington, on Thursday evening last, New South Wales has lost one of its oldest and most notable colonists. The deceased had been a resident of the Wellington district for upwards of 50 years and at one time was the largest landholder in the west, having been owner of the Goonoon, Gobolion, Apsley, Nanima, and The Holmes in the Wellington district, and of large holdings on the Castlereagh and Bogan, besides large runs in Queensland. Mr. Aarons had the distinguished honor of entertaining the officers and men who accompanied the Duke of Clarence and the Duke of York on their visit to Australia many years ago, and on the recent visit of the Prince and Princess of Wales, then Duke and Duchess of York. Mr. Aarons and family were guests of Royalty at Sydney, the Prince displaying much interest in the family of the aged colonist. Aarons led an active life, and until a fortnight ago managed entirely the whole of his business matters. A sharp attack of influenza and bronchitis caused him to lie up. He died at the advanced age of 84 years. He was the first Mayor of Wellington, and acted very regular on the local bench as Justice of the Peace.

MR. ISAAC AARONS— Mr. Isaac Aarons died at his residence, Toowoomba, on Thursday last.

Mr. Bridg- man called to renew acquaintance with his old friend on the morning of his death— too late. Mr Aarons managed several large properties in New South Wales for the late Judge Josephsen, and later owned Kangaroo Creek Station, on the Clarence River, selling it to its present owner, Mr. Michael Shea; also Coonimbla Station, in the Coonamble (N.S.W.) district, and in conjunction with his brother, the late Mr. Joseph Aarons, held Nanima and other properties in the western district of New South Wales.
