Ryan, Michael Joseph (1854–1920)

Mr. Michael Ryan, an old and respected resident, passed away at his residence at Wellington last week. He had been confined to his bed for the past month, and though there had not been much chance of his recovery, he put up a great fight against the Grim Reaper. Deceased, who was the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Ryan, who at one time managed 'Gobolion' estate, was in his 65th year, 45 of these being spent in the Wellington district. He was an employee of the Railway Department, having charge of the railway gates at the Mudgee crossing for 25 years. He retired about six years ago and went to live in Wellington with his wife and family. The deceased was twice married, and is survived by his widow and grown up family of five sons and five daughters. His surviving brothers are Messrs. Patrick Ryan (Wellington) and W. Ryan (Mudgee).
