Joseph McGaw (?–1898)

Messrs. Dalgety and Co. have been advised by cable of the death in England of Mr. Joseph McGaw, a member of the London board of directors of Messrs. Dalgety and Co. Limited, and the owner of "Kooba" Station in Riverina. In partnership with his late brother, William McGaw, the deceased gentleman was owner of those well-known stations, "Burrabogie" and "Kooba." The former station was sold some years ago to Mr. Fitzwilliam Wentworth for £440,000. The brothers McGaw retained "Kooba," Mr. William McGaw being the resident partner. The latter, however, died some years ago at his Sydney residence, and the management of the property vested in Mr. George Mair, of Groongal, who has acted for many years as Mr. McGaw's attorney in Australia, and who, with Mr. R. B. Wilkinson, of Messrs. Wilkinson and Lavender, is executor in the estate.

The deceased gentleman has resided in England for the past fifteen or sixteen years, but is well remembered in Australia for his many sterling qualities and amiable disposition.
