Solomon, Isaac (1816–1901)

from Advertiser (Adelaide)

On Saturday evening Mr. Isaac Solomon, who was well known in commercial circles, died suddenly at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Josiah Marks, Albert Park, Melbourne. The deceased gentleman was born in 1816, and arrived in South Australia 63 years ago. After staying in South Australia for a little while he went into partnership with his brother, Mr Judah Solomon, who was subsequently Mayor of Adelaide, as Government auctioneers in Sydney and they carried on the same business later on in Brisbane. In 1841 Mr. Solomon returned to South Australia, and became associated with Mr. Maurice Salom, carrying on business as auctioneers in a mart in Hindley-street for a number of years. About 20 years ago the partnership was dissolved, and since then the deceased gentleman had lived a retired life in Melbourne with his daughter. His brother, the late Mr. Emanuel Solomon, M.L.C., was one of South Australia's first legislators. The deceased leaves eight children and 43 grandchildren. The funeral took place on Tuesday, and Rabbi Boas, of Adelaide, conducted the burial ceremony.
