from Pastoral Review, 15 May 1926

The death occurred in Sydney last month of Mr. William Moses, of Combadello Station, Moree district, N.S.W. He was born at Windsor, in that State, 64 years ago, and was the second son of Mr. Henry Moses, who resigned from the New South Wales Legislative Council about two years ago.

The late William Moses was also part owner, with his brother, Mr. F. A. Moses, and Mr. T. Field, of Mercadool Station, in the Walgett district, and was many years closely associated with the breeding of thoroughbreds. The famous Arrowfield Stud, on the Hunter River, was under his part-ownership, but was sold in recent years. He and his brother, F. A., bred and owned Poitrel, one of the greatest horses of the Australian turf, and they also imported Valais, the doings of whose progeny need no stressing. St. Alwyne, Roseworthy and Powhatan were other imported sires at Arrowfield.

Mr. Moses is survived by his wife, two sons, Keith and Rupert, and four daughters.
