Thomas Woods (1828–1905)

The death took place at Windsor Hospital on the 2nd inst. of Mr. Thomas Woods, at the age of 78 years, after a very painful illness. He was conveyed from Wiseman's Ferry to the Windsor Hospital (a week previous to his demise), suffering from an internal growth necessitating an operation from which he never regained consciousness. He was born on the Hawkesbury River, and lived there all his life but about two years, when he was on the Clarence River. Mr. Woods was a very generous and kind-hearted gentleman. He was robust and healthy, and had but very little sickness; about 30 years ago he met with a painful accident; and had his thigh broken. He leaves a long train of descendants behind him to mourn their loss, viz: — Mr. William Woods (a thriving farmer in the Shoalhaven district), the only brother; Mrs. James Hayward (Windsor), Mrs. I. Mutton (Pyrmont), Mrs. Carlson (Arcadia), Mrs. Johnston (Cook's River Road, St. Peter's), daughters; Mr. T. C. Woods (Maroota), Mr. Charles Woods (Brooklyn), Mr. Edmund Woods, (Police Sergeant, Walgett). Mr. William Woods (Mosman), sons, besides about 50 grandchildren and several great grandchildren. The remains were taken to Wiseman's Ferry and laid to rest in the Church of England Cemetery, the burial service being read by Mr J. T. Marx, lay reader, in the unavoidable absence of the curate in charge. Mr J. W. Chandler, of Windsor, was the undertaker.
