DEATH OF MR. THOMAS WILLIAMS.
MOUNT GAMBIER, September 22.
Last night, when Mr. Thomas Williams, Manager of Moorak Estate, died, Mount Gambier and the South-East as a whole lost one of their most valuable and respected residents. He was born at Swansea, in Wales, 62 years ago, and came out, a boy of fourteen years, with his mother and other members of the family by the ship Charlotte Jane in January, 1852. His father, the late Mr. Llewellyn Williams, had come out to Adelaide previously. For twelve years after landing on these shores the family settled at Mount Barker, where Mr. L. Williams and his family engaged in farming. Whilst there Mr. T. Williams married a daughter of Mr. R. Eglington, of Mount Barker, and afterwards of Mount Gambier. About 1864 Mr. T. Williams came to Mount Gambier, and entered upon farming at Compton. Then he took a contract for ploughing on the Moorak Estate, and the late Mr. W. J Browne recognising his ability, took such a liking to him that he appointed him to supervise the extensive agricultural operations which were then being carried out on the estate. A year or so afterwards, when Mr. Browne left for England, he appointed Mr. Williams Manager tor the estate. That was thirty-five years ago, and Mr. Williams held the position with credit to himself and advantage to his employers, Dr. W. J. Browne, and afterwards his son, Mr. P. J. Browne, till his death. The deceased was three times married. He has left a son, Mr. L. Williams, of Adelaide, a daughter, Mrs. K. Matheson, of Leigh's Creek, who are the children of his first wife. Another daughter by his first wife died some years ago. She was the wife of Mr. T. C. Ellis, of Benara. By his second wife Mr. Williams had no issue. His third wife, now left a widow, is the eldest daughter of Mr. John Jacob, of Adelaide, formerly Clerk of the Mount Gambier Local Court. He also left three more daughters, her children. Eight of the brothers and sisters of the deceased gentleman survive him. One is Mr. W. Williams, of the Mount Gambier Foundry; the others are scattered over Australia. As stated above, Mr. Williams had been one of the most valuable residents of the district. He was well versed in all farm and station work, and being possessed of wonderful energy was ever ready and willing to help in any movement that arose for the benefit of the leading industries of the district. He was also a diligent and intelligent experimenter with grasses, manures, roots, and grain in different soils in the district, and the results of his experiments were of considerable value to his neighbouring agriculturists and graziers. He was a leading member and supporter of the local Agricultural and Horticultural Society from its foundation, and was for several years a member of the Mount Gambier branch of the Agricultural Bureau. From time to time he was a member of the Mount Gambier East, Mount Gambier West, Benara, and Beachport Councils; indeed, for the last thirty years he had almost constantly been a member of one or more of them. He was a warm friend of military matters in the district, and the military companies are greatly indebted to his influence for the convenient ranges they use on the estate, without which it is to be feared our companies would have faded away from want of interest. He was a Mason, and an Oddfellow. Of the M.U. Order of Oddfellows he had been a member for thirty six years. He was a consistent member of the Church of England, and had been several times a Warden of Christ Church.12
