Newell, George William (1882–1926)

Mr. George W. Newell, a store keeper, of Koribar, died in the Taree District Hospital on Thursday night at the age of 44 years. For years he was a prominent figure in the central North Coast show rings with his jumping pony, Toby. He was so attached to the pony that he would not let anyone else ride him. The pony jumped well over six feet, despite the owner's considerable weight on his back. Last week Toby broke a leg, in an accident, and had to be destroyed. A few days later Mr. Newell developed a serious attack of appendicitis, and was brought to hospital, where he lingered several days before his death.
