Theodore (Theo) Body (1853–1895)

Mr. Theodore Body, of Terramungamine Station, near Dubbo, N.S.W., died on Sunday, 1st December, at Dubbo, from inflammation of the lungs, supervening upon an attack of influenza. Mr. Theodore Body (who was forty-two years of age) was a member of the old Tumut family of that name, and a younger brother of Mr. F. E. Body, J.P., of Bundemar Station. For years he has managed Terramungamine, living latterly at Caledonia, and he was much respected by the men employed on the station and by all his neighbours. He was a generous, high-minded gentleman, with the keenest sense of honour, and one had only to know him to admire him. Mr. Body was married to Miss McEwan (daughter of the Rev. Mr. McEwan, who for many years was Presbyterian minister at Mudgee) and he was thus connected with the old Busby family, branches of which originally settled and are still to be found in the Bathurst and Cassilia districts.
