Joseph George Wood (1824–1900)

Advises from Warren state that Mr. Joseph Wood, a very old resident in the western district, died at his residence, "Woodleigh," near Warren, on Thursday morning. Deceased formerly lived for many years on the Bogan, near Forbes, where he had extensive station property, but during latter years, owing to adverse circumstances, he was compelled to relinquish these. Mr. Wood also resided for some time at Wagga, where most of his family reside. He was at one time owner of Rosevale Estate, Uranquinty. Deceased, who was 76 years of age, was one of the pioneers of the back country. His brother John took up country on the Lachlan, near Forbes, over 50 years ago. The funeral took place on Friday afternoon, the remains being interred in the Warren Cemetery.
