    Mr. Dehane, the stationer, of King William-street, died this morning, after a lingering illness. The deceased gentleman was one of our oldest colonists, and very generally respected by those who knew him.

    Adelaide Observer (SA : 1843 - 1904), Saturday 24 December 1864, page 4
    Death of Mr. Dehane.— We have to record the decease of another old colonist— Mr. George Dehane, of King William-street. As early as 1839 Mr. Dehane was engaged in business here as a printer and stationer. By his diligence and probity he soon achieved a respectable position, and eventually acquired a competency. When the Adelaide Observer was started Mr. Dehane undertook to print it at his office in Morphett-street, and continued to do so until the first proprietor had provided his own type and presses. Mr. Dehane was well known and much esteemed by those of his fellow-colonists who had witnessed the untiring, industry of his early career. He leaves a sorrowing widow, who has been unremitting in her attentions, and ably managed his affairs during his protracted illness, and one daughter, who is married to an eminent manufacturer in England.
