At the age of 78 years, Thomas Oakman Cross, who for twenty years was a resident of Tomingley, has passed away at Bronte, Sydney. Whilst residing in the district he was a farmer and he recently relinquished the work to his sons, going to Bronte to live. His end was peaceful. Falling into a coma some few days before his death, he passed away without regaining consciousness. The deceased gentleman was born in England and had earned the respect of all with whom he came into contact. He was married four times and is survived by a sorrowing widow and a family of two daughters and seven sons who are left to mourn the loss of a loving father. They are:—Jane (Mrs J. Davis, Holbrook), Elsie (Mrs. P. Leary, "Medway,"' Dubbo), Thomas (Minore), Joseph (Peak Hill), John ("Kiawarra," Willydah), William (Wyanga), James (Minore), Ronald and Ernest (Tomingley). To these the "News" would express, with residents of the district, sincere sympathy.

The remains were interred in the C. of E. portion of Peak Hill cemetery early last week, the Rev. E. T. Pearce conducting the last sad rites at the church and graveside.
