James Robert Snodgrass (1869–1913)

On Monday last Mr W. Fens received word that his nephew, Mr J. Snodgrass, had passed away at Victor Harbour from the effects of typhoid fever. In his earlier days the deceased gentleman was farming with his father in the Swan Reach district. Then he came up the river and took up Murray View, which about three years ago he sold to Mr Metters. He then settled in the Wentworth district, taking up Rapillah, but did not stay there long, coming to Renmark, where he intended settling down. Mrs Snodgrass and her 3 children, the eldest of whom is but 6 years old, left on Monday evening by motor to attend the funeral.
