Mr, Maurice Sullivan, a pioneer of western New South Wales and of Riverina, died at Thornleigh, and was buried in the Church of England section ot the Northern Suburbs Cemetery.
Mr. Sullivan, who was 71 years of age, was born at Daroubalgio, near Forbes, where his father had a cattle run in the early days. The late Mr. Sullivan, when l8 years of age, went to "Kooba Station", in the Narrandera district, then owned by Waller and Gorton. Six months later Kooba Station was purchased by Messrs. Stanbridge, McGaw, and Waugh, and it is interesting to note that Mr. Sullivan was associated with three generations of the Waugh family, extending over 52 years.
The late Mr. Sullivan was for several years overseer of "Clare Station," and later was manager of "Yarrangobilly Station, Tumut".
After leaving the latter, Mr. Sullivan purchased a property in the Hay district, and later went to the Mossgiel district, where he remained until a few years ago. He then secured a grazing property in the Camden district, and about five years ago retired, and up to the time of his death lived at Thornleigh. Mr. Sullivan was a thorough Judge of stock, and enjoyed a wide circle of friends throughout the country. - (Ref- The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842-1954) Wednesday 21 May 1924).
