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.
