Mair, George (1852–1907)

The man who first occupied the Mayoral chair in Gundagai municipality is dead. He was Mr. George Mair, of South Gundagai, and he crossed over on Sunday last, after fighting for a long time against the consumption fiend. Well known along the track was George Mair, and he had the reputation of being a careful drover. About a quarter of a century ago he and his brother started an auctioneering business in Gundagai, and did well for a number of years. When the first Council was elected in Gundagai George Mair topped the poll, and was then chosen as Mayor. Deceased, who was 53 years of age, was born on Douro Estate, Yass, then managed by his father. His wife was one of the well-known Jenkins family, of Nangus, and his family consists of three sons and two daughters. The funeral on Monday was largely attended, the remains being interred in the Presbyterian cemetery, South Gundagai. Rev. Donald Ross read the burial service.
