Gow, Thomas (1831–1897)

Mr Thomas Gow, a native of the Hawkesbury, aged 67 years, and a resident of Penrith for upwards of 30 years, died last Saturday week. Mr Gow was one of those sterling, hard-working, and strictly honest men who has done so much to improve the district in which he lived and the colony generally. His own home, whether on the farm or when he came to reside in town in a semi-private fashion, was always the picture of neatness and cleanliness, and the outer part of this work–viz., the looking to fences, keeping footpaths, etc., gravelled and clean – was done with his own hands. His late residence, at the corner of Highstreet and Mulgoa Road, was a picture of order. Deceased leaves a widow and eight children, four boys and four girls, all grown up, and two of each are married. He has three brothers living, viz., Mr James Gow, storekeeper, of St Marys. Mr William Gow, in the Education Department near Goulburn, and Mr Stephen Gow; of Windsor. His remains were interred in St Stephen's Cemetery on the following Sunday afternoon, and the funeral was a large and representative one. Mr W. Metcalfe, of Parramatta, had charge of the funeral arrangements, and Rev G. Brown, Rural Dean, conducted the service according to the rites of the Church of England.–" Nepean Times."
