      Jewish Herald (Vic. : 1879 - 1920) Friday 9 May 1890
      By the death of Mr Raphael Cohen, which took place on Wednesday last, at the good old age of 77, one of the oldest colonists and co- religionists has been removed. Mr Cohen was born at Brighton, England, where his brother, the late Levy Emanuel Cohen, was the founder, and for many years the proprietor, of the Brighton Guardian. The deceased arrived in New South Wales in the year 1838, and was engaged in commercial pursuits until 1852, when he came to Melbourne. Here he became connected with one of the leading firms of auctioneers, Messrs Francis and Cohen, of which the late Edward Cohen was a member. On the dissolution of that firm Mr R Cohen retired from active business. For a period of over twenty years, and up to the time of his death, Mr Cohen held the position of auditor to the Metropolitan Gas Company and auditor to the Australian Life Insurance Company. He was an uncle of Lady Benjamin and of the Hon. H E Cohen, formerly Colonial Treasurer and Minister of Justice in New South Wales
