The Sydney Morning Herald
17 May 1935
The death occurred at his residence in Tumut of Mr. Stephen French, 86, one of the district pioneers.
He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel French of Brungle, and spent all his life in the district. His parents came from Scotland in 1840.
As a boy he was employed as a shepherd at £60 a year and two rations, after which he purchased grazing property at Brungle. He disposed of it a few years ago.
