Meehan, Michael (Mick) (1875–1949)

The death occurred in the Wellington District Hospital on June 30 of Mr Michael Meehan, of “Easterfield”, Mumbil, at the age of 74 years. Deceased had been in indifferent health for about four years.

The late Mr Meehan, who was born at Hill End, came with his parents to the Wellington District, where deceased’s father took up the property known as “Red Hill”, Dripstone.

As a young man, Mr Meehan purchased the property known as “Easterfield”, Mumbil.

Because of the ill-health he was unable to manage the property, and it was conducted by sharefarmers for about twenty-five years.

During that time, Mr Meehan lived in Wellington with his wife and family and was the Central Western representative for Massey Harris Pty Ltd.

The late Mr Meehan, popularly known as “Mick”, was a well-known identity throughout the Central West and was liked and respected by all who knew him.

Deceased’s only brother, Mr Pat Meehan, took over “Red Hill” property from his father, later disposing of it and retiring to Sydney to live.

In 1928, the late Mr Meehan retired as Massey Harris representative and lived for the remainder of his life on his “Easterfield” property.

Deceased is survived by his widow and one daughter, Mary Isopel (Mrs J. W. Reynolds), of “Easterfield”).

Two sons, George and James, predeceased him by a number of years.

Also surviving are three sisters, Mary (Mrs F. Bowhay), Nora (Mrs E. Read) and Bride (Mrs A. T. King), all of Coogee.

The funeral took place on Friday, July 1, after a Requiem Mass in St Patrick’s Church at which Rev Fr Kelly officiated.

The remains were later interred in the Catholic portion of the Wellington Cemetery. Father Kelly officiated at the graveside.

Funeral arrangements were conducted by Messrs Murray Bros.
