Dangar, Mary Phoebe (1848–1931)

Mrs. Mary Phoebe Dangar, widow of Mr. Albert Augustus Dangar, who was a prominent pastoralist in New South Wales, died at Baroona station, Whittingham, in the Singleton district, yesterday. She was in her 84th year. Her husband died at Singleton in April, 1913.

Born at Guntawang in the Mudgee district, Mrs. Dangar was the daughter of the late Mr. Edwin Rouse. She was associated with her husband in many benevolent and philanthropic works.
