The oldest Corowa (N.S.W.) dweller, Glenbervie Brown, has died at the age of 92. He planted the first vineyard at Wahgunyah (Vic), and was the first wine maker there. He is survived by eight daughters and two sons. He arrived in Sydney in the sailing vessel Glenbervie in 1839, being born on board when the ship was 14 days out from London.
