"AN OLD COLONIST GONE.-The late Mr. Henry Angel who died at Lake Albert, near Wagga, at his residence on the 7th instant, at the age of 91 year, was a colonist for over 60 years, having arrived in the colony in 1819. He first settled in Kiama as a farmer. In 1824 he went with Humo and Hovell's party on the expedition overland to Hobson's Bay. He was one of the first men who crossed the River Murray and was always foremost in any difficult situations or hardships on the journey. Mr. Hume, in his reports of the expedition, frequently mentions the name ot Henry Angel, and speaks highly of his courage and determination. He appears always to have been a man on whom great reliance was placed by the explorers iu any difficulty or hardships.

Mr. Angel afterwards followed the occupation of a farmer and became a squatter on the Murrumbidgee. He eventually settled near Wagga, and became possessed of a considerable landed estate. He was noted in the district for his strict integrity. ln 1832 he married Mary Brooker. There were l6 children of the marriage, eight of whom and the widow and 70 grandchildren survive their father.

MR. HENRY ANGEL'S HISTORY.

With the death of Henry Angel, of Collins street, Wagga, at the age of 87, in the Wagga District Hospital early yesterday morning, Wagga loses one of its oldest pioneers, and incidentally one of its most respected citizens. He was a member of a very interesting family

Henry Angel was a link between the early history of this State and the times in which we live. His father, also Henry Angel, whose remains lie in the Wagga Cemetery, was one of the party of explorers, led by Hume and Hovell, who discovered the Murrumbidgee and Murray, and Henry Angel, the senior, is believed to have been the first white man to swim the Murray.

In 1845 he settled at Wardry, near Hay, there opening up the country much of which is now occupied by Unrdry station. Henry Junior married Miss Emma Terry at Howlong Station, however, died after giving birth to twins, one of whom died, but the other is still living, and is now Mrs Iniglis, of Collins street, Wagga.

The deceased came with his father from Wollongong to Riverina when he was a boy of eight or nine, the late James Gormly, the late John Hurst, and he were born in the same year, and they, were all associated in their enterprises at various periods of their careers. In 1864 he came to Lake Albert and engaged in grazing and farming, and there he remained until about twenty years ago. Meantime he had married again, his second wife being Mrs Cunningham, the mother of Mr R. J. Cunningham of Wagga. Their eleven children, of whom ten are still alive, are scattered over the state.

The surviving members of the first Henry Angel's family are Mrs John Hurst, of North Wagga, and Mrs Harris, who lives in Sydney. His brothers are Messrs Samuel Angel of Trail street, Wagga, who a few years ago, retired from active work,. E.J. Angel, of Lake Albert, who is recovering from a severe illness, and Mr James Angel, of Beckwith street, who is also improving after a sharp attack by an ailment from which he has suffered for years.

When the mother of these ladies and gentlemen died in 1890 there were living no fewer than ninety grand children and forty great grandchildren. She was described as a woman of strong and vigorous intellect and of a warm heart, extraordinarily resourceful, industrious, careful, and liberal. It would be interesting to trace the complete history of this family, which originated in Wiltshire, England, but which has become firmly rooted in Australian soil.

The deceased leaves a widow and ten children, also 32 grand children and seven great grand children. Relatives and friends are respectively invited to attend the funeral which will move from Mrs C. Inglis' residence, Collins street, for the Presbyterian portion of the Wagga cemetery. Members of the M. U. I.O.O.F. are invited to attend.
