Donald Brandon (Dod) Langley (1874–1938)

The community received another shock on Tuesday last, when word was brought to town that the dead body of Mr. 'Dod' Langley had been found in Mr. Fred. Miller's paddock at Jincumbilly. Deceased had reached the age of 63 years, and was well known and highly respected by all with whom he came in contact. His sudden death is regretted by his many friends. The deceased was twice married: a son by his first wife is, we believe, a constable in Western Australia. His second wife is left to mourn, together with two brothers, Richard (Perth, W.A.) and George (Bombala), and two sisters, May (Mrs. Richards, W.A.), and Amy (Bombala), to whom the general sympathy of the public is extended.
