JAMES JONES. An old resident of Orange in the person of Mr. James Jones, expired somewhat suddenly at the residence of Mr. Ralph Rogan, in Sale-street, Or- &nbsp; ange, yesterday morning.

On Wednesday the patient's condition was improved, and he was able to leave his bed and walk about. Yesterday morning the heart trouble re-asserted itself, and Mr. Jones suc- cumbed after a seizure extending over an hour. The deceased gentleman was the father of Mrs. Ralph Rogan, and was well-known and highly respected in &nbsp; Orange.

LATE HON. GEORGE LEE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 26 January 1912
LATE HON. GEORGE LEE. The late Hon. George Lee, M.L.C., was laid to rest on Wednesday after- noon in the Kelso cemetery, and the large crowd that foregathered at the graveside was evidence of the high re- spect in which he was held. Numerous friends in Sydney were unable to at- tend on account of the train not reach- ing Bathurst until the obsequies were over. But many of those unable to &nbsp; attend sent messages of condolence, and also numerous wreaths. The scene was an extremely sad one at the graveside, where the interment took place. As the coffin was lowered into the family vault, and hidden from sight, many of those present turned away to hide their tears, realising that although he had been called by the Great Power they could ill-afford to see him leave their midst. After the ceremony was over many lingered in the graveyard. Those most acquainted with his fine character seemed to hard- ly realise that he had gone from their midst. Aniong those present were Sir Fran...

It appears that the deceased, George Richard Fox, was engaged at his employment at a chaffcutter at Mullion, when he was seen suddenly to reel as if in a fit.
