Robert, I have never been a fan of message boards as a lot of misinformation can be tossed around. I too have information regarding the death of Thomas George Hunt, by way of a death certificate that was passed on to me by a distant relative in New Zealand whom I met up with many years ago and have stayed in touch with ever since.
Thomas suffered from cancer for 9 months before finally succumbing on March 24 1894. This of course is written on the death certificate. I can’t for the life of me work out how anyone could possibly think he drowned and then, without checking out the facts, post that information online!!
You will remember me from a reunion 30 years ago. Please give me ring so we can have catch up.
