Thomas Greentree (1814–1893)

from Windsor & Richmond Gazette

Mr Thomas Greentree, an old river identity, who had attained the age of 80 years, died last week at Maroota. It is reported that death was primarily due to exposure, some persons having robbed his residence of the bed-clothing it contained, leaving him to sleep without covering for several nights. The funeral took place on Friday last, the remains of the deceased being interred in the cemetery adjoining the Wesleyan Church at Lower Hawkesbury, Mr. T. Collison being the undertaker.
