Charles Henry Thatcher

In our last issue we referred to the serious illness of Mr C. H. Thatcher, a gentleman well known throughout the length and breadth of the Forbes dirtrict. On Thursday night his brother, Mr. H. W. Thatcher, of Pine Park, received a telegram from Sydney asking him to come at once, as the case was regarded as hopeless. On Friday Mr. Thatcher was just preparing to leave by that afternoon's train when he received another wire conveying the sad intelligence that his brother had passed away. Mr. H. W. Thatcher left by Friday's train, and attended the funeral on Saturday, the remains being interred in the Waverley cemetery. Mr. Charlie Thatcher was 51 years of age, and for the greater portion of his life he had resided in the Forbes district. A man of temperate and active habits, he was always looked upon as being in the pink of condition, and when he visited Forbes a few months ago one could have taken a lease of his life. But two or three months ago he complained of indigestion, and on consulting a medical man in Sydney he was informed that he was suffering from an internal malady. Subsequent in vestigations proved this to be only too true, and for the past few weeks poor old Charlie had been lying at his sister's residence in Sydney bravely waiting for the end. The late Mr, Thatcher at one time owned Moonbie station, and subsequently conducted a stock and station agency business in Forbes, but last year he acquired a property in the Gunnedah district. Over twenty years ago he married Miss Alice, the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Philip Strickland of Forbes, but his wife predeceased him by a couple of years. The one child of the marriage, a daughter now 17 years of age, is at school in Sydney. Mr. Charlie Thatcher was essentially a lovable man, for he possessed a genial and kindly temperament which made him a favorite with all classes. To his relatives and friends the deepest sympathy is certainly extended by all in this district who had the pleasure of knowing him.
