Cohen, Solomon (1848–1922)

On February 9 Mr Solomon Cohen, managing director of Cohen and Co Ltd, of Cootamundra and Stockinbingal, died at his private residence, Cooliatta, Burradoo, aged 71 years. He was the elder surviving son of the late Mr Lewis Cohen, of Murrurundi. In his young days he was a great sportsman, and owned and raced several well-known horses in the northern district, and when at Cootamundra presented a 100 guinea cup to the local turf club. He was in business at Murrurundi, and in 1885 established the firm of Cohen and Co, Ltd at Cootamundra. Mr Cohen, although not seeking municipal honours, was a great worker for the town and district and a member of the show, hospital, and other committees and president of the racing club for a number of years, and upon his retirement was made a life member. Mr Cohen leaves a widow and seven children, of whom the eldest, Bert and George, are in business at Harden, and Harold a grazier at Texas. The remains were interred at Rookwood.
