Aplin, William Henry (1867–1952)

An early northerner, Mr, William Henry Aplin, died at Maroochydore on Christmas Day at the age of 85 years. He was the eldest son of the late Hon. William Aplin, one of Townsville's earliest settlers. Born at Bowen in 1867, Mr. W. H. Aplin grew up in Townsville and was probably one of the first pupils on the roll at the Central State School. He was a dairy farmer in the Maleny district for many years and recently retired to live at Maroochydore. He is survived by his widow, three daughters and one son. Mr. Aplin's two sisters are still living in North Queensland, Mrs. W. Mytton, of Ayr, and Mrs. S. O. Wakeford, of Townsvllle.
