Moses, Isaac (1828–1882)

Once more the grim messenger of death has been in our midst, and left in his train desolation. We refer to the recent death of Mr. Isaac Moses, a highly respected townsman of many years' standing, who leaves a wife and four children to mourn his loss. The melancholy event took place at the deceased's late residence, Hill-street, Muswellbrook, on Friday night last; and although not unexpected, caused a gloom to spread over the town when it was known, on Saturday morning. The funeral took place on following Sunday afternoon, when almost the whole of the townsmen turned out to pay a tribute of respect to the deceased by following the funeral cortège to the Church of England cemetery, and seeing the remains of their old townsman deposited in his final resting place. The funeral obsequies were conducted by the Rev. Canon White, in a most solemn and impressive manner. The cause of death was that dread complaint, heart disease.
