Robert Henry Reuben (1845–1912)

from Mudgee Guardian

Mr. Robert Reuben, a native of Mudgee, and who died in Sydney the other day, was a member of the well-known Jewish family of the late Mr. L. W. Levy. In the early days of Mudgee — getting on for fifty years ago — Mr. H. R. Reuben, father of the deceased, was one of Mudgee's leading storekeepers. He kept a general store in Church street, in the premises which until recently were occupied by Mr. Garling, photographer, and owned then by Mr. Reuben. He afterwards removed to a shop next to Daly's butchery, in the premises now occupied by Miss Conn. Mr. Reuben retired from business, and went to Sydney to live. Mr. E. Daly and many old hands will remember the Reuben family.
