Evening Post 12 April 1929
Through the death of Mr. Jacob Geange, which took place at the Upper Hutt on Tuesday last, the district loses one of its best-known identities, and one who had been identified with its advancement all his life. The late Mr. Geange was born in 1869, on the property now occupied by the Wellington Racing Club, and had resided in the locality for the last sixty years. He was a son of the late Mr. R. Grange, who settled at Trentham in 1855 as one of the pioneers. For many years Mr. Geange carried on a carrying business between Upper Hutt and Wellington. He was also engaged in farming, at which he had been very successful. He was a member of the Wellington Racing Club since its removal to Trentham, and he was one of the founders of Loyal Lodge of Oddfellows at Trentham. He is survived by his widow, two sons — Mr. K. S. Geange (Upper Hutt) and Mr. S. J. A. Geange (Kaiwaiwai, Featherston) — and one daughter, Mrs. H. H. Tyer (Kaiwaiwai, Featherston). He also leaves seven grandchildren — two boys and five girls. The funeral took place at St. John''s Churchyard, Trentham, yesterday afternoon, the Rev. Kendrick officiating at the graveside, while the Oddfellows also read a portion of the funeral rites. Many beautiful wreaths were received, and there was a large gathering of mourners, testifying to the esteem in which Mr. Geange was hold by all sections of the community.
