Underwood, John William (1850–1895)

Mr. J. [John William] Underwood, the well-known driver for Cobb and Co., died at the Hospital on Sunday evening. A severe cold on a weakened constitution was I believe the cause of his death. For a long time past he has been driving between the Half-way House, on the Blackall-Jericho road, and Blackall. Always of a cheerful disposition and obliging, he was well liked by travellers. Before driving in these parts he was a popular whip for the same firm up north.
