John Thomas Dunn

Mr. JOHN THOMAS DUNN
The death occurred at Liverpool on Christmas morning of Mr. John Thomas Dunn, at the age of 86 years, after a fortnight's illness. Deceased was born at Kent Street, Sydney, and he spent his youthful days droving on the Lachlan and other parts of the country, including Bowman's Hill, Taralga and Lismore. His work eventually led him to Burragorang Valley, in the days when a bridle track marked the pioneers' way up the mountain and pack horses carried pro visions home. He married a Burragorang girl (Miss Ettie Gorman), a sister to Mr Maurice Gorman, of Burragorang, and Mrs. Furlong, of Sydney. Deceased was the only resident for many miles who understood the work ing of a sawmill, and for some years he followed, this occupation. About seventeen years ago his first wife died leaving a family of three children. They are: Mrs L. Noakes, of Liverpool and late of Camden; Mrs J. Smith, of Picton; and Mr Stanley Dunn, of Burragorang. There are also eleven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. A few years later he married Mrs Turner, a widow, who predeceased him some eight or nine years. There was no issue of this union. Rev. M. O'Dea officiated at the burial service when this old resident was laid to rest in the Catholic cem etery, Camden, on 26th December. The funeral arrangements were carried out by the firm of Walter F. Peters and Son. This firm also bad charge of previous family funerals, da ting back to January 13th, 1904, when deceased eldest son William John Dunn, aged 29 years, of Burragorang passed away.
