38. John Rogan

Mr. John Rogan, Sen.
After a few weeks' illness, Mr. John Rogan, sen., died on the 2nd inst. at his residence, McLene-street, Young. He was born at Parramatta 82 years ago. As a boy he visited the Turon diggings with his father. After marriage he lived at Picton, Mittagong and Goulburn, and in 1872 came to Young. Deceased, a grandnephew of Ben Singleton, the explorer, was of fine physique, being almost 6ft high. Mrs. Rogan predeceased him in August last year, a month after the celebration of the diamond jubilee of their wedding. He commenced business at Young, and was highly successful as a buggy-builder; later on he built a coach factory, established an iron foundry, and opened a large saddlery and harness business. Always able to do the work of two men, deceased worked till he was 75, at which age he retired. For several years he was an alderman and was the fourth Mayor of Young. Heart trouble resulted in his death. During his illness he was constantly attended by the Very Rev. Dean Hennessy. In the early days at Young, Mr. Rogan was on the building committee of St. Mary's, and was one of the first guarantors of that very fine church. It was very consoling to the members of the family who were present to witness such a peaceful and happy death — a fitting close to a strenuous life. Eleven members survive, out of a family of 15, Messrs John and William, and Misses Lilian Mary and Jean (Young), Mrs. Webb (Kogarah), Mrs. Massey (Newcastle), Mrs. O'Connor (Paddington), Joseph (Manly), Arthur and Peter (Sydney). Mrs. Riecks, of Sydney, is a sister of deceased, and has reached the ripe age of 84. There are 39 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. The funeral took place on the 3rd inst., among the mourners being four great-grandsons. Very. Rev. Dean Hennessy, P.P., read the burial prayers. — R.I.P.

The bride, who was given away by her father, was attired in a cream, tailored costume, topped by a smart cream hat, relieved with touches of pink and gold. She carried a quaint bouquet of white carnations and lilies of the valley, which, with a diamond cluster ring, was the gift of the bridegroom. Th« bride's reciprocal gift was a set of gold studs. The bride was attended by her only sister, Babe, who was attired in a cream crepe de chine frock, and a cream lace hat, with touches of pink.
