James Snodgrass (1812–1902)

We regret to have to record the death of very old resident of the district in the person of Mr. James Snodgrass, who died at the residence of his son Allan at "Summerlea," Uranquinty, yesterday morning. The quently (?) 90 years of age. His wife pre-deceased him on March 25, 1900, at the age of 70 years. The deceased gentleman leaves many relatives throughout the district. He was well and favorably known by a wide circle of friends, and although his great age had brought on infirmity and his well-known figure had disappeared from public walks of life, his death caused general regret. The funeral will move from his son's residence this day at 9 o'clock, passing the show ground at 2 p m., and the interment will be made in the Wagga general cemetery. Mr. John McIntosh will conduct the funeral arrangements.
