OBITUARY - THOMAS ANDERSON. It is with regret that we have to record the passing of another of the old hand of pioneers of the North, and one of Bowen’s most familiar figures, in the person of Thomas Anderson, whose death took place at his residence, George Street, at about 1 p.m. on Monday, 11th January, at the age of 71 years and six months. The deceased had been in his usual health up till a couple of weeks previous to his death, but gradually failed and passed away as stated. Born in Geelong (Victoria) the late Tom Anderson came to Bowen about 70 years ago in company with his parents, and has been a resident ever since. His first occupation as a lad was spare boy to the late Tom Morris, a teamster, on a trip to the Bowen Downs, carting wool from the back country and taking supplies out. From thence onwards he had been connected with stock all through his life, horse-breaking, cattle work and shipping horses for overseas. He was also a mail contractor and in 1880 was running the mall to Ravenswood, about which time he had a leg broken. In later years he conducted a livery stable in Gregory Street which was removed to its present site about 30 years ago, at which place he has resided ever since. He led an active life, following various occupations in connection with stock, including the position of Town Common Ranger, and was very well known throughout the district, being liked and respected by all who knew him. He was most obliging and many a small stockowner owed, him a debt of gratitude for a helping hand in that connection. He took a great interest in horseracing and up to a few years back was connected with the local turf clubs, having at one time held a position on the Committee of the Bowen Turf Club. The funeral left his late residence on Tuesday at 11 a.m., being a representative one, the Rev. Moneton (R. C. Church) performing the last sad rites at the graveside. He leaves a sorrowing wife, one son (Frank), a daughter (Nona), one daughter having predeceased him several years ago, two brothers (Messrs, D. S. Anderson, Bowen, and J. Anderson, of Charters Towers), and two sisters (Mrs. A. W. Wilson, Charters Towers, and Mrs. Barns, Brisbane) to mourn their great loss, and deepest sympathy is extended to them. Many wreaths and messages of sympathy were received.
