James McLeod (1820–1892)

The late Mr. James McLeod, who died at Olive-street, Prospect, on January 19, at the age of seventy two, was many years ago a well-known sheep farmer. Early in the fifties he was the proprietor of a hotel at Wentworth, New South Wales, and invested his capital in station properties in the River Darling district. Here he amassed considerable wealth. Subsequently he removed to this colony, and purchased Gaskmore Park, at Paradise, where he he lived for some years. Mr. McLeod was one of the promoters of the old Kangarilla Silver Mine, and was also interested about the same time in the development of the pastoral industry. The deceased gentleman leaves a widow, one son, and five daughters.
