Otho Orde Dangar (1842–1923)

The death occurred on Thursday, 20th inst., at his residence, 'Villa Fortuna,' Henley, Parramatta River, of Mr. Qtho Othas Dangar, a native of Port Macquarie, aged 81 years. The deceased gentleman, who was a son of the late Sergeant Dangar, in early manhood went to the Macleay, and engaged in the business of store keeping, and afterwards became an auctioneer. He was a prominent figure in business and public life uptil he went to reside in the metropolis in 1920. He represented this electorate in the State Parliament for several years. Mr. W. T. Dangar, of Kempsey, is a brother, and his wife and a son and two daughters also survive him, viz., Mr. O. O. Dangar (solicitor, Narrandera), Mrs. A. McM. Singleton and Miss Dangar (Sydney). We regret the passing of one who was an interesting link with the earliest days of settlement on this river. The interment took place at Sydney on the 21st inst.
