Solomon Joseph (1834–1900)

Mr. Solomon Joseph, proprietor of the 'Tamworth News' for the past twenty years, was found dead in his office this morning. Deceased left home as usual last night to go to the office and did not return. The family became alarmed for his safety, and a search was instituted, and this morning Mr. Joseph was found lying on his back on the office floor, having apparently fallen dead, after turning out the gas preparatory to leaving for home. Deceased was 66 years old, and formerly edited the Hebrew journal in Melbourne. He leaves a widow and a family of three sons and four daughters, all grown up.
