Cohen, Philip (1824–1898)

Philip Cohen, n.d.

Philip Cohen, n.d.

A very old identity passed away at his residence at Lavender Bay on Sunday, February 16th, 1898 in the person of Mr. Philip Cohen. The deceased gentleman was born in Edgeware road, London in 1825. He was the son of the late Mr. Henry Cohen, formerly merchant of this city and brother of the late Hon. Edward Cohen formerly Commissioner of Customs Melbourne, and Mrs. H. Marks and Mrs. David Levy of this city, also uncle of Mr. Justice Cohen. Mr. Cohen was closely interested in all matters connected with the local fisheries, and took an active part in keeping these matters before the public of N.S.W. and Victoria. His letters to the S.M. Herald being read with great interest. As a recognised authority he compiled a pamphlet for the Government of N.S.W. on the 'Fisheries of the Colonies,' for transmission to the Chicago Exhibition. His other literary works and short stories published in the 'Sydney Mail' displayed a masterly style, and were much appreciated on account of their colonial subjects. These are to be gathered into volume form for publication. The Rev. J. H. Landau officiated at the funeral at Rookwood. Mr. L. Samuels conducted the arrangements. Mr. Cohen leaves a widow, five daughters and four sons to mourn their loss.
