George Wilson (1832–1906)

The death occurred yesterday, at Bellerive, of Mr. George Wilson, who for many years was a resident of Oatlands. The deceased gentleman at one time took an active interest in municipal affairs, and always stood high in public esteem. He was Warden of Oatlands, and in 1887 was made a justice of the peace. For many years he was also Government assessor for his district. Towards the close of his life ill-health prevented him from taking any active part in the public affairs to which formerly he had devoted much time and attention. At the time of his demise he was in his 75th year. The funeral will leave Bellerive at 9.30 a.m. tomorrow for the Cornelian Bay Cemetery.
