Arrived on Agnes

William Thomas

The Late Mr. William Thomas, . of Forbes.
There died in Sydney a few days ago one of the best known and best respected business men in the West. We can well realise the force of the telegram which we published list week, which says: — ' General grief was expressed in Forbes when it was learned that Mr. William Thomas, Mayor of Forbes, had died suddenly in Sydney. His remains were conveyed here by train to-day (Monday, Fehruiry 3). The late Mr. Thomas had been one of the best townsmen Forbes ever had. He was Mayor for years, three times in succession, and was a most liberal townsman, contributing largely to every object for the good of the town and district. Mr. Thomas leaves a large family. The funeral, which took place on Tuesday, the 4th instant, was the largest ever held at Forbes. The late Mr. Thomas was born at Beauinaris, Wales, where he resided until after he was 19 years of age. He sailed for Melbourne in 1859, spent some time in the Ovens gold field, and was at the Snowy River in 1861. In 1862 with his brother he went to the Lachlan and commenced business in the locality which became the town of Forbes. Mr. Thomas left in his will £100 each to the Forbes Hospital, School of Arts, Town Hall, and Church of England.
