Starkey, Thomas (1821–1901)

I have to record two deaths in our district this week, one being Mr. Thomas Starkey, of Lower Hawkesbury, at the advanced age of 82, from pneumonia, and general breaking up of the system. The other death, that of the late Mr Starkey's son's wife (Mrs Joseph Starkey), from head of Mangrove Creek, from blood poisoning. Old Mr. Starkey's wish was to be buried on his own property, and his remains were laid to rest in a quiet spot near his late residence. Rev. J. Colwell delivered a very impressive address to about 200 people who attended the funeral.
