Death of a pioneer. Albury, Sunday. 

William Huon, one of the pioneer settlers of the border district, died yesterday, aged 81.

Deceased was a son of a landholder in the Campbelltown district, who was the first to take up land south of the Murray River, acquiring the Wodonga Station, which then included the entire area of the present town.

Mr. Wm. Huon was sent up to manage Wodonga Station, which since has been materially reduced by advancing settlement, and has lived there ever since, still retaining a considerable area surrounding the homestead, known as De Kevillean.

He was twice married, his second wife, who survives him, being a niece of Hamilton Hume, the celebrated explorer.
