DEATH OF MR. ROBERT LOSBBT.
BOWRAL, Wednesday.
The death of Mr. Robert Loseby, which has occurred at Bowral at the ago of 81 yean, , removes one of the earllest pioneers ot the Berrima district, where he had resided since he was 2. years old. His father, the late Mr. Charles Loseby, took up land near Bong Bong In 1845, and from that time onward the name of Loseby has been closely identified with the development and progress of the district, father, uncles, and brothers of the deceased sharing In the work.
In 1862 the deceased and his brother Joseph felt the thrill of Journeying through the country of bushrangers. They took teams to the Lachlan, but though Gardiner's gang was active around the Bathurst district, where an escort was robbed, the Loseby brothers did not meet the gang. The deceased often recalled the time when the first trees were fallen for the clearing of Bong Bong-street, Bowral, long before the raliway line was surveyed from Picton to Goulburn in 1800. Mr. Loaeby took a keen interest in the development of Bowral and district, and recently presented to the people the fine park which bears his name. The late Mr. Loseby was unmarried. The funeral, which was largely attended, took place at the Church of England Cemetery at Bong, Bong, where many members of the family are burled.
