Angel, Richard (1844–1907)

The death occurred at 12.30 this morning of Mr. Richard Angel, one of the best known residents of the Wagga district. Mr. Angel had been ailing for about three years, and six months ago was striken with paralysis; which made him a complete invalid. A serious change took place on Sunday evening, and until shortly before his death he suffered intensely, but passed away peacefully. His wife and fourteen children (9 sons and 5 daughters) survive him. Deceased was the son of the late Henry Angel, the explorer, and the first white man to swim the Murray. He was born in the Campbelltown district about 62 years ago, and came to Riverina when a boy, and has resided about the district ever since. He was a brother to Messrs. James, Samuel, Henry, and E. J. Angel, all leading residents of the district, and Mrs. John Hurst, of Brucedale, and Mrs. Harris, of Sydney, are sisters. The funeral has been appointed to leave his late residence, Wollundry-street, at 3 o'clock to-morrow afternoon.
