Edward Jonathan Angel (1852–1934)

The death occurred at the age of 82 years, at his residence, "Springvale," Lake Albert, last night, after an illness of about a fortnight, of Mr. Edward Jonathan Angel, who was the second youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Angel, of Lake Albert, who were among the earliest pioneers of the Wagga district. Mr. E. Angel was 10 years of age when his parents settled at Lake Albert. His father was with the Hume and Hovell expedition in New South Wales in the early days, and was the first white man to swim the Murray River near Albury. The deceased was a keen fancier of Shorthorn cattle, of which he was a noted breeder. He had lived at Lake Albert all his life and was also a very great lover of horses, having trained many splendid animals during his long life at the station. He was one of the founders of the coursing club. The plumpton was situated on his property, and he had a number of good dogs himself which were very successful in coursing matches.

Mr. Angel was rector's warden at the Lake Albert Church of England for the last 25 years, and was held in very high esteem and respect through-out Wagga and district. He was one of the oldest members of the M.U.I.O.O.F. Lodge, and was a keen cricketing enthusiast, having been a splendid player in his younger days. He never missed seeing any of the matches played at Lake Albert up to the time he became ill. He was also a member of the M.P. and A.A. for a great many years. He is survived by six sons and three daughters, Stanley Edward, Leslie James, Walter Edwin, Harvey Edgar, and Horace Edmund, of Lake Albert, and Harold Bruce Angel, of Sydney, Misses Ivy and Gertie Angel, of Lake Albert, and Mrs. W. Miller, of Mona Vale. One brother survives, Mr. Samuel Angel, of Trail-street, Wagga. The funeral will move from "Springvale," Lake Albert, at 2.30 o'clock to-morrow (Saturday) afternoon for the family enclosure of the Wagga cemetery.
