Obituary
Mr Robert McRAE
The death occurred at Windsor on Thursday of last week, of Mr Robert McRAE,
who had with his brother, Kenneth, recently left Clear Lake, where they had
resided, save for a brief spell at Hamilton, for a long number of years.
The two brothers were closely attached to one another, were almost
inseparable in fact and the severing of this life long tie is a heavy blow
to the surviving brother. Mr Robert McRAE was born in Scotland, and he and
his two brothers (the late Mr Donald McRAE, of Tooan was also a brother)
came out to Victoria in the early days, and followed grazing pursuits.
Robert, who never married, was about 70 years of age.
