Thomas Eather

Late Mr. T. Eather.
On Tuesday, last week, Mr Thomas Eather died at his residence at Bulga, at the advanced age of 84 years. Death ensued from an attack of jaundice, and was accelerated by senile decay, the deceased's illness extending over a period of three months. The late Mr. Eather was one of the famed Hawkesbury natives, having been born at Windsor in the early years of last century. He came to Bulga when the Singleton district was a very small speck on the map of New South Wales, and had resided hereabouts ever since. Two of his descendants (Mr J. W. Eather and Mrs Clark) survive him. The funeral took place on Wednesday last, the interment being made in the Bulga cemetery, where the deceased gentleman's remains were laid to rest alongside those of his wife, who predeceased him by some years. The Rev. F. Drake, of Jerry's Plains, read the last prayers according to the rites of the Church, of England, and Mr G. Broomfield, undertaker, of Singleton, directed the funeral ceremonies.
