DEATH OF A CUDGEGONG PIONEER, Another of the pioneers of the Mudgee district passed to his rest last night in the person of Mr. Atkinson, sen., of Limestone, near Cudgegong. Deceased, who was in his 81st year, has been in failing health for some time. He was a native of England, but was attracted in his early manhood to Australia. Like most of the hardy stock who transformed New South Wales from a wilderness to the paradise it is, Mr. Atkinson was a hard worker, and bravely faced danger and hardship and built a home for himself and his family. It is more than 50 years ago since he braved the dangers and inconveniences of what was then "out back," and acquired a holding at Limestone, where he spent his life, and where, with the assistance of his sons, he won from the bush solitudes a pleasant and comfortable home, by sheer hard work and perseverance. He was one of the first to take up country in the neighbourhood of Cudgegong, at about the same time as Mr. "King" Wilkins and Mr. Rhodes settled there. He lived a peaceful life, the greater portion of which was filled with strenuous toil, and he has earned the everlasting rest he entered into last night. His wife pre-deceased him about five years. He leaves a grown up family of four daughters and three suns. Two of the former live in this district, while two have their homes in Sydney. The sons live in this district. Mr. P. J. Atkinson, of Church Street, is a grandson. The funeral takes place to-morrow to the cemetery at Cudgegong, when Rev. J. B. Penman will officiate (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 12 May 1910, page 16).

Note: TRIBUTE TO THE LATE THOMAS ATKINSON.

TRIBUTE TO THE LATE THOMAS ATKINSON. In the person of the late Mr Thomas Atkinson, of 'Willow Glen,' Limestone, there passed away one of Mudgee district's pioneers. The deceased gentleman had attained a ripe age, being an octogenarian. He was a man of rather a retiring disposition, and there is much, he has done that may have passed unnoticed. Honesty and straightforwardness was his policy, and in this rat er helped train his family. Mr Atkinson was born at Rycroft, Bingley, Yorkshire, England, in 1829, and married at the age of 21, in the beautiful old ivy clad and historic Church of England, Bingley, 0n December 20, 1853. In that church today may be seen sculpture work of his hand, as also in the cemetery surrounding the building are stones carved by him. Here most of his ancestors are laid to rest. His health failing him he was ordered from England, so made to Australia - his destination. He came to Victoria some 53 years since. The change evidently restored his health somewhat, so like the sterling man he was set himself to build up a home for the coming out of his good wife. For a few years he worked in Victoria, from thence he crossed to New South Wales, selecting the Mudgee district as his home. He was one of the first to take up land in Limestone, where, with the aid of his wife and family he built a home they are justly proud of. The late Mr Atkinson was a clever man and a scholar. His artistic nature showed itself in the home he has left, and also in the family he has left, every member of which has inherited art and genius besides the straight and honorable characters of both their beloved parents. They all may well feel proud of having possessed such progenitors. Not only has this man worked up his own neat property, but several are the buildings to-day standing in Mudgee showing the work of his hands. In the masonry of the beautiful old Catholic Church, and several other places of prominence he was responsible. Along the Sydney road may be found bridges of his construction, as also two very large ones across the Bell River, near Molong. In every one his good work was asserted. A family of seven are left to mourn him (three sons and four daughters) viz., Mr V. R. Atkinson (Wargon), Messrs. H. P. and A. Atkinson (Willow Glen), Mrs F. R. Atkinson (Leichhardt), Mrs A. Nicholson (Glen Innes), Mrs J. A. Pitt (Gulgamree House), and his youngest daughter, Mrs G. Harland ('Belvedere,' Liverpool). There are 15 grand-children and three great grand-children. His remains were interred in the family plot, in the Cudgegong cemetery, on Friday last. The Rev. Morris, of Rylstone, officiated, showing the esteem in which deceased and relatives were held. Tho arrangements were carried out by Mr C. Swords, of Mudgee (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 19 May 1910, page 17).
