It is with much regret that I have to chronicle the death of one of our oldest and most respected residents in the person of Mr. Thos. Newham, senr., of Wyangala, the cause of death being senile decay. He was in his eighty second year, having came to the Lachlan with his father, Wm. Newham, in the year 1831, his father being the seventh native born in N.S.W. The deceased followed grazing pursuits in this locality ever since. Until quite recently he had enjoyed the best of health, being an exceptionally active man for his years, attanding to the various duties attached to the management of his property in a manner that would do credit to one of lesser years. It would be safe to say that few men had more friends and less enemies than the late Squire of Wyangla, in fact the deceased gentleman was related in some way to almost every family in the locality. The funeral which was by far the largest ever witnessed here took place on Saturday last when the remains were interred in the Church of England portion of the Mt. McDonald cemetery, some four hundred persons paying their last respects to one who possessed good citizenship to a marked degree. The sympathy of a large circle of friends is extended to the bereaved family.
