Aarons, Isaac (1831–1914)

Mr. Isaac Aarons, who died at Toowoomba, Queensland, last week, in his 84th year, was widely known in wool and sheep circles in this State. Over 50 years ago Mr. Aarons, with Mr. Arthur Kemmis, established the Fort Cooper Downs station for the late Mr. E. B. Cornish, taking the first mob of sheep through to North Queensland. Mr. Aarons managed several large properties in the State for the late Judge Josephson, and later owned Kangaroo Creek station, on the Clarence, selling it to its present owner, Mr. Michael Shea. He was also interested in Coonimbia station, in the Coonamble district, and in conjunction with his brother, the late Mr. Joseph Aarons, held Nanima and other properties in the Western district.
