Dangar, William John (1829–1890)

We regret to be obliged to record the death, at his residence, Neotsfield, near Singleton, on Sunday, of Mr. William John Dangar, a resident of very longstanding in the Patrick's Plains district. Mr Dangar had for some years past been in failing health, so that his end was not unexpected. When in the enjoyment of vigour of body, he was among the foremost of those enterprising and practical colonists who in the neighbourhood of Singleton have done so much to develop the resources of this country. As a breeder of sheep and cattle, Mr. Dangar was noted far and wide, and he was for many years an earnest worker in the Northern Agricultural Association, over whose deliberations and operations be presided for a very lengthened time. That association owed much in its earlier years to his fostering care, and his energy and zeal were not more conspicuous than the courtesy and kindness with which he discharged the duties of the office of President.

Mr. Dangar was sixty-one years of age at the time of his death. His wife died some time since and he leaves no family. His remains will leave Neotsfield for the cemetery at Singleton at three o'clock this (Tuesday) afternoon.
