Ryan, Thomas Henry (1819–1906)

On the 25th July, at Dungaree, the death occurred of Mr. Thomas Ryan, at the ripe old age of 88 years. The deceased was born in Tipperary, Ireland, and emigrated with his parents and other members of the family in the ship China, landing in Port Jackson in 1839. Mr. Ryan's first experience of Colonial life was at Gobolion, near Wellington, where he spent several years in the early 40's in stock-keeping. At the outbreak of the goldfields in '51 he went to the Meroo diggings, and settled down at Campbell's Creek, near Windeyer, where he lived for upwards of 50 years. His principal occupation was farming, but in the early '40's he was a mail contractor, and conveyed the mails from Mudgee to Wellington, Mundooran, Windeyer, Hargraves, and Leng Creek. He reared a family of five sons and six daughters, who settled down in various parts of the State. The remains of the deceased were conveyed to Windeyer on the 26th ult, by his sons Michael and William, and laid in the grave of his father and mother.
