Francis A. Gore (1847–1904)

Mr. Francis A. Gore (wired our Toowoomba correspondent last night) died this afternoon at the residence of Mr. Kennard, Toowoomba. The deceased was one of the oldest squatters on the Darling Downs, and was a member of the firm of Gore and Co., of Yandilla station. He always took a keen interest in the public affairs of the Darling Downs. For many years he was chairman of the Darling Downs Rabbit Board, and had also been a member of the Central Rabbit Board. He had also been one of the committee of the Darling Downs Pastoralists' Association, a member of the Jondaryan Shire Council, and one of the committee of the Royal Agricultural Society of Queensland. The deceased was much esteemed, especially by the smaller settlers in the Yandilla district, to whom he was ever ready to lend assistance. Accompanied by his wife, the deceased visited India to witness the Durbar, and it was at that time that his health became undermined. He leaves a widow and three grown-up children - a son and a married daughter in India, and a daughter in Toowoomba.
