REID The many friends of Mr Thomas Reid, of Maioro and Waiuku, will regret to hear of the sudden decease, which occurred at Grafton Road, Auckland, on September 20th, after a short and painful illness, at the advanced age of 72. The deceased gentleman was widely-known and esteemed in the neighbourhood of Auckland, where he had resided for about 40 years. Mr Reid was a native of Dungannon, County Tyrone, and when a young man left the land of his birth for the purpose of trying his fortune on the Australian goldfields, which were then becoming famous. After a short residence in New South Wales he was persuaded to try New Zealand, where he first settled at Howick, and eventually at Waiuku, where he was largely interested insheep and cattle grazing,experiencing some of the vissicitudes of the Maori war. Mr Reid was married in 1860 to Miss Margaret Williamason, sister of the late Hon. James Williamson, by whom he had a son (Mr Thomas Reid, of Reid Park, Waiuku), and a daughter (Mrs Crawford, of Maioro). His first wife dying in 1889 he married in 1892, Miss Elizabeth Robertson, of Aberdeenshire, who, with the above-mentioned son and daughter, now mourn his loss. The funeral took place on the arrival of the S.S. Weka at noon on Saturday. The funeral cortége was a long one, containing upwards of 30 vehicles and 80 on horseback, besides a number of pedestrians. The chief mourners were Mr Thomas D. Reid, son, and Mr Thomas Crawford, son in law. The deceased was interred in the Waiuku Cemetery beside his former wife, who died about 10 years ago. Mr Reid was one od our respected pioneer settlers, having settled in the district 40 years ago.

Many of our old residents will recollect the deceased as Inspector of Weights and Measures for the city and provincial district of Auckland, since that date, during the last superintendency of the late Mr John Williamson. Mr Reilly was very widely known and highly respected by all with whom he was brought in contact. In 1891 his wife died. His only son is at present in a good position in Fiji.
