Lefroy, William Gerald (1856–1924)

We regret to announce the death of Mr. W. G. [William Gerald] Lefroy, late of Yanyeareddy and Towera Stations, at the age of 68, which took place last Saturday. Mr. Lefroy was engaged in fighting a fire which had got beyond control near his house at Carramarra (Moora), when he was seen to stagger and fall, and when assistance came life was found to be extinct. Death was due to heart failure.

Deceased was the first mayor of Midland Junction. He leaves a widow and family of 13 children to mourn their loss.

The funeral, which took place on Sunday, last at Moora, was largely attended, deceased's son-in-law, the Rev. Mr. Riley, officiating.
