David Leslie (1844–1909)

from Wyalong Advocate

Mr David Leslie, owner of Ungarie Station and perhaps the oldest resident of this district died at the home of his son-in-law, Mr Alick McLeod near Wagga, on Sunday night. We understand that it is more than 40 years since Mr Leslie came to this part of the State. He was one of that grand type of men who carried out the pioneering work of NSW. Being a big strong man, standing over six feet high, he took a big interest in athletics, and had often given evidence of his strength in friendly contests in the early days of this field when Sergeant Mcllardy lived amongst us.

Mr Leslie leased Ungarie about 2 years ago, at a time when his health gave his friends concern. He leaves three daughters and two sons behind him.
