Parramore, George (1843–1893)

Mr George Parramore, of Wetmore, Ross, died after a short illness at his residence on Monday morning. The deceased was a son of the late Mr Thos. Parramore, of Beaufront, and grandson of Mr Geeo. Parramore, a prominent Wesleyan, and a great supporter of that denomination. He largely contributed towards the erection of the handsome Wesleyan Church at Ross. He was an old Hortonian, and attained distinction there, and at the time of his death he was a member of the College Council. At one time he was a member of the Ross Municipal Council, and was also a J.P. He was of retiring habits, and was very generous, and his loss will be severely felt not only in this district but throughout the colony. The deceased married a daughter of the late Mr P. Oakden, and leaves three children, two daughters and a son. In agricultural pursuits deceased was well known as a breeder of stud sheep, and his drafts always obtained good prices at the various sales. General regret was expressed when the news of his death reached the township.

The funeral will leave Wetmore for the private cemetery on the Wetmore estate at 8 p.m. to-morrow.
