Dewey, Augustine (Gus) (1859–1932)

Mr Gus Dewey died at his home, "Growee", on Tuesday last, at 2 pm, aged 74 years. Deceased, who was reported to have been the wealthiest grazier in the Rylstone District, had been ailing for a considerable period, so that his death was not unexpected. The remains were brought to Rylstone on Wednesday by Mr J. B. Simpkins, the funeral leaving the residence of the deceased’s sister, Mrs Sheridan, Carwell Street, at 11 am on Thursday, for interment in the Catholic portion of the Rylstone cemetery, the Rev Father Ring officiating at the graveside. The late Mr Gus Dewey, together with his brother, the late Henry Dewey, who died in December last, owned considerable town properties, as well as the "Growee" holding.
