Thomas Robertson (1830–1891)

from Sydney Morning Herald

Mr Thomas Robertson, solicitor, died at 6 o'clock this morning. He was taken ill in June last and partly recovered but about three weeks ago he had a relapse, and since then he had been confined to the house, and died this morning. The deceased, who was 62 years of age, came to Hay in 1886. He was highly respected, and took a prominent part in all public matters. He was president of the Atheneum, returning officer, and chancellor of the diocese of Riverina, and was a prominent Mason. He leaves a widow, and a large family nearly all grown up.
