Mr Thomas Sheridan died at Rylstone on Monday last at the ripe old age of about eighty years. Mr Sheridan was well-known and much respected at Tong Bong and Rylstone, having resided there for many years. He leaves a family of two sons and several daughters to mourn: Thomas, "Eastwood", Lue; William, Qld; Mrs T. W. Taylor, Waterdale, Clandulla; Mrs R. E. O’Halloran, wife of Mr R. E. O’Halloran MLA, Sydney; Mrs R. Patterson, and Miss Irene Sheridan, Rylstone. The bereaved wife is the sister of Messrs Dewey Bros, "Growee", Rylstone, and the late Mr Michael Sheridan of "Glen Lee", was a brother of the deceased. The remains were interred in the Roman Catholic portion of the Rylstone Cemetery. Mr Sheridan’s death marks the passing of a fine old pioneer, and his demise was received with profound regret throughout the district.
