DEATH OF A PIONEER [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 22 October 1925

DEATH OF A PIONEER News reached Queanbeyan last Thursday of the death on the pre vious day of Mr. Thomas Franklin, of Brindabella. The cause of death was senile decay, Mr. Franklin hav ing attained the age of 81 years. In this gentleman's demise the district loses not only a pioneer, but possibly the oldest of those who long, long since blazed the earliest tracks of settlement hereabouts. His father before him took up land at Brinda bella, where the deceased lived for the past 54 years. After his father's death, the deceased and two of his brothers took up land for grazing purposes a few miles higher up the river (the Goodradigbee River) on the banks of that snow-fed stream, which is one of the main tributaries of the impounded waters of the fa mous Burrinjuck Dam. The deceased married and took his wife to that outpost of settlement over fifty years ago, and there reared a numerous family of sons and daughters, one or two of whom have grazing properties adjacent to the parental hold...
