38. John Eather Williams

Mr John Eather Williams -We regret to have to report the death of Mr. John Eather Williams, of 'Tyreel,' Agnes Banks, which occurred at deceased's late residence, Agnes Banks, on Wednesday of last week, the deceased having attained his 82nd year The late Mr Williams was a typical Hawkesbury native of the sturdy great hearted old school, and was one of most widely esteemed settlers of the district. Some three months ago the members of Mr and Mrs Williams' family, with their children, and other relatives and members of the public, assisted at a social re-reunion tendered to the fine old couple on attaining their golden wedding, and many felicitous speeches were made in accordance with the occasion, and testifying to the noble life career of the revered guests. The golden wedding celebration was attended by over 100 people, and the fine old couple were made the recipients of a number of beautiful and appropriate gifts. After their marriage (in 1867) Mr and Mrs Williams went to reside on Mr Williams' cattle Station, 'Tyreel,' near Moree, and twelve months later, having, meanwhile, had a very prosperous period, returned to Agnes Banks (the natal home of both), where they had a new dwelling erected, which they called 'Tyreel,' in memory of the outback station. The Williams family have lived at 'Tyreel,' since 1880. The surviving members of the family comprise — Messrs Frank Williams (Moree)and Thomas Williams (Agnes Banks), and Mesdames R Wood (Richmond), Theo Devlin (Agnes Banks), and Miss Emily Williams. There are many grandchildren. The interment was in the Church of England Cemetery, Richmond, and was attended by a large cortege of mourners.

41. 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.

43. Charles Eather

Death of Mr. Charles Eather.
(Narrabri Herald, Nov 4)
On Monday evening last, about 6 p.m., after a long and painful illness, there passed over to the great majority one of the pioneers of the Namoi, a man who for upwards of forty years had made the north-west his home, and seen many changes and vicissitudes. One who at one time was owner of vast tracts of country with every promise of an old age passed in ease and affluence, and one who had endeared himself to all who had the privilege of his acquaintance-better still, of his friendship. Such an one was Charles Eather, who passed quietly away at the age of 64 years, on Monday evening. Tended to the last by loving and kind friends, his slightest wish was anticipated ; and surrounded by his relatives and a host of friends, he " passed to the bourne whence there is no returning." Many a good and earnest man may yet make a name for himself on the Namoi, but out of the limits of the present generation the memory of the true sterling friend who has just left us will never depart.
The funeral, which left the deceased's late residence at 4 p.m. yesterday afternoon, was the most largely attended yet seen in Narrabri, the cortege measuring fully a third of a mile in length, and was composed of all the principal people of the town and district. The pall-bearers, all old and tried friends of the deceased, were Messrs. J. Moseley, J. M McDonald, W. H. Gordon, James Ward, sen., R. Spencer, and E. Poole. The coffin, which was of beautifully polished cedar, was almost covered with flowers. The whole of the business places in town were closed during the progress of the procession through the streets, and at the grave the burial service was very impressively read by the Rev W. J. Walker.
