Death of the Aboriginal King of Tumut Tribe

Freeman's Journal, Sydney

12 August 1865

The race of aboriginals known as the Doomut or Tumut blacks is fast becoming extinct, another of the tribe having succumbed to that grim visitor, Death.

For some time past Hannibal Hamilton, king of the Tumut tribe, has been declining, and on Saturday night he died.

Hamilton was about fifty years of age, and for several years was in the service of Mr. E. G. Brown, of, Blowering.
