The deceased, for some time prior to his death, complained of not feeling well, but nothing of an unusual nature was noticed during the day, and after eating dinner, he went to the bedroom and lay on the bed. Less than twenty minutes after he was found quite dead. An inquest was held. The deceased was an old and esteemed resident of Gullewa. He left a wife and five children, the youngest being but five months old. Earlier that year, the following was reported in the "WA Record" "Of hotels we can boast two very handsome ones in Gullewa. The Gullewa Hotel, the property of Mr. Thomas Jones, is indeed an attractive looking house, being got up in quite a modern style. The cuisine arrangement is under the direct supervision of Mrs. Jones, assisted by Miss Morrissey (the house-keeper) who is most painstaking in studying the comfort of patrons."
