My mother told me that, driving along a country road in their cart, her father seemed to say the same thing to everyone who passed — "Good day Tom", but she realised what he was really saying was "Good day to you". From my short memory of him, and from all I have ever heard of him, he was a loveable, kindly, unselfish, unambitious, humble family man. Poor as a church mouse, but would give you anything he had. The idea of him being a farmer and grazier is a bit far fetched. I understand he was just a subsistence, struggle farmer. He might have had 50 sheep and a couple of cows, and grown a few vegetables, but they were close to the bread-line. He finished his days in Day St, Marrickville. (RHC and SMH contradict this).
She got in touch with Mary Phillips, who years ago took her to see Woodstock. Mary says the name has changed to Coffee Hills. The area is or was called Paling Yard Creek. The last time she saw it there was only rubble left. People had taken anything useful, but some fruit trees remained. Mary left the area in 1967. She says it is now a vineyard. Paling Yard Creek is on the right side about 10 miles from Orange towards Canobolas, near Cargo.
The death occurred at his residence, Moulder-street, on Saturday morning, of Mr Thomas Sydney Lister, at the age of 79 years, the immediate cause being an epileptic fit. The deceased, who has been residing in Orange for some years, leaves a widow and grown-up family. The funeral will take place this morning, the remains to be interred in the Methodist portion of the Orange cemetery.
