Thomas Furber (1864–1915)

Mr. Thomas Furber, of Wolola, Jericho, Queensland, whose death in the Blackall Hospital, on 1st April, was announced some time ago, was a native of Queensland. He was born at Coorada Station, on the Dawson River, in 1864.

He lived with his father on several stations until 1883, when he started for himself as a carrier in Western Queensland. In 1893 he took up pastoral pursuits in the Longreach district. In 1899 he transferred his pastoral interests to the Isisford district, where he remained until 1904, when he moved to Wolola. Mr. Furber was successful in all pastoral matters, and his loss will be keenly felt. He leaves a widow, four daughters, and three sons.
