Phillips, Charles (?–1910)

A very old and much respected resident of the Dunorian district passed away in Launceston on Saturday, in the person of Mr Charles Phillips. The deceased was 82 years of age, and for about half a century he had been a resident of the Dunorian district. Although he never took a prominent part in public matters, he evinced an interest in local matters, and assisted in many ways the institutions of the district. His sympathy and assistance were frequently sought by neighbours who were overtaken by trouble, and never without immediate response, no matter at what self denial. He was twice married, but had been a widower for some years, and leaves no family, His brother, the late Mr James Phillips, of East Devonport, predeceased him some six years ago, also at the age of 82 years, and the late Mrs John Frost, of Carrick, was also a sister. One sister is still living, Mrs W. Walker, of East Meander, and she has been bed-ridden for nearly six years.
