Forbes Times, 2 Nov 1888.
Mr Joseph Collits, one of the oldest residents of this district, died yesterday in the Forbes Hospital. Mr Collits was at one time the owner of extensive pastoral properties in this district, and in 1861, the year the Forbes Diggings broke out, he purchased the Bogabigal Station, adjoining the rush, from Mr Rankin, paying 10,000 Pounds cash for it. He was 81 years of age at the time of his death.
