OBITUARY, Friday June 17, 1921


One of the pioneers of the Korong Vale district, in the person of Mr Thomas Faulks, passed away on Friday last. Mr Faulks was born at Nottinghamshire, England, and came to Australia at the age of 10 years. For some years he lived at Laanecoorie and Eddington, coming to Korong Vale district 44 years ago and living there ever since.

He was closely connected with the Methodist Church, for 17 years being superintendent of the Sunday School.

The funeral took place of Sunday, the Rev. F. A. Apted conducting services at the house and the graveside. The coffin was carried by his five sons - John, Robert, William, Serpell and George, and his son-in-law (Mr F Vernon).

In the evening a memorial service was held in the Methodist Church where a large number paid their respects to the deceased's memory. The service was conducted by Rev. Apted and was most impressive.
