MR.GEORGE THOMPSON of WOODWILLOW, RENMARK 2 times Great Grandfather of Josephine Helen Seretis (nee Mead) Renmark Murray Pioneer August 5th 1910 Another of the pioneer settlers of Renmark has passed away. It is 20 years since Mr. George Thompson, who died at his residence, Woodwillow, Block A, on Sunday night July 24th settled in Renmark. Mr. Thompson, who came from near Epsom in England, was a colonist of about 60 years standing, and had he lived a few weeks longer, he would have attained the ripe old age of 82. The late Mr. Thompson had been in feeble health for a considerable time, and about 4 weeks before his death he injured his hip in a fall resulting from the snapping of the stick he was using for assistance in walking. From the effects of this, super-added to his previously enfeebled condition, the old gentleman never recovered, being obliged to keep to his bed thenceforward. Mrs. Thompson, a saintly old lady, for whom great sympathy is felt, survives her husband and one son, Mr. Oscar Thompson and two daughters, Mrs. Acason and Mrs. C Millar, are also living in Renmark. Other members of the family are Mrs. Wheare(the eldest daughter) living near Ardrossan, Mr. Edward Thompson, formerly of Renmark and now for some past years foreman in charge of the date farm at Hergott Springs, and Mr. Arthur Thompson, dentist, who removed from Renmark to Clare where he still resides, some four years ago. Mrs. Mead, of this settlement, is a granddaughter. The burial took place at the Renmark cemetery on Tuesday afternoon, the Rev. W. Jarrett, pastor of the local Congregational Church (of which Mr. Thompson and family were members) first holding a short service at Woodwillow before the funeral cortege left for the cemetery. Prior to settling in Renmark, Mr. Thompson was for some years managing a business at Melrose, at the foot of Mt. Remarkable and one of the oldest townships in the South Australian northern areas.
