Blackman, Samuel Alfred (1830–1896)

A telegram from Mudgee last Thursday said: — 'Mr. Samuel Alfred Blackman, J.P., one of the earliest residents, arriving before the town was surveyed from his birthplace on the Hawkesbury, died last evening at the age of 66. The deceased was well known throughout the colony as the owner of Cooyal station, where he carried on extensively the breeding of thoroughbreds, including Waxy, Sting, Hereford Bay, and other noted performers. He also followed sheepbreeding both at Cooyal and on Talbragar, and was prominently associated with racing clubs in this district. The deceased had been ailing for several months from an internal complaint. He leaves a widow and a family. The funeral was attended by a very large concourse of town and district residents, the deceased being held in general esteem.'
