Macvean, Duncan (1858–1912)

from Euroa Advertiser (Vic)

A sudden and unexpected death occurred at Miepoll on Sunday morning last, when Mr. Duncan Macvean, a well-known Victorian pastoralist, who had recently settled in this district, was called away with startling suddenness. While going from one room to another he fell down, and expired in a few minutes, the cause of death, being heart failure, that organ being affected for some time previously. Mr. Macvean was a native of Cressy, and had made a large circle of friends in all parts of the State. He leaves a widow and three young children. The body was interred in the Euroa cemetery, in the presence of a large assemblage of sympathising friends and relatives, several of whom came from Geelong and elsewhere to pay a last tribute of respect to deceased's memory. Mr. J. O'Neill supervised the funeral arrangements.
