Cavanough, Thomas (1840–1922)

On the 3rd instant at Lake George, in Bungendore district, died another old Hawkesbury native, Mr. Thomas Cavanough, at the age of 84 years. He was born on the Lower Hawkesbury and belonged to the old pioneers. He went to Richmond when a comparatively young man, joined the railway service as a porter, and was afterwards a guard on the Richmond line for some years, then stationmaster at Mulgrave, Hornsby, Hawkesbury River, Gunning, and Bungendore. When he retired some fifteen years ago he took up land at Lake George, where his wife is still living, and must be close on 90 years of age. She was a Miss Buckridge, of Pitt Town, and sister of Mrs. Kilduff, of Richmond, widow of the late John Kilduff, of the railway department.
