Harry Crozier (1854–1898)

We regret to have to chronicle the death of Mr. Harry Crozier which occurred at Moorna station, on the River Darling, on Friday. The deceased gentleman, who was the fifth son of the late Hon. John Crozier, had for some time past been in poor health, and recently showed an incapacity for business, finding it necessary to undergo medical treatment in the city before leaving for the station. He was well-known, especially in sporting circles, and his generous and good-hearted nature earned for him a host of friends, who will hear of his death with great regret. His connection with horses and stock of all kinds has been of a long duration, and although he never raced a horse yet he was always a thorough sport, and in his day was a first-class rider. He could often have been found on the polo field and was a great lover and breeder of ponies. He was the possessor of one of the best pony stallions, if not the best, in South Australia, some years ago, and was considered a first-class judge of cattle and stock. For several years Mr. Crozier managed the well-known Oaklands Estate, and he married a daughter of the late Mr. Blackler of Fulham Park. He was accustomed to station life, and spent much of his time on either one or other of the stations of the family. Mr Crozier, who was 44 years old, leaves a wife and child, for whom much sympathy is felt.
