Obituary of Thomas Cavers Hall (1850-1917)

Here’s the obituary of one of my ancestors, whose mother was a Cavers. He was one of 10 children, 4 of whom had Cavers as a middle name. He grew up in Hawick and in later life settled at Melrose, also in Roxburghshire, to be a farmer.

Southern Reporter, October 4 1917

DEATH OF A WELL-KNOWN FARMER.- We regret to learn of the death, following an accident, of Mr Thomas C Hall, for over 20 years tenant of the farm of Gattonside Mains. On Thursday last Mr Hall had just left the farm-house to drive over to Melrose, and when not far from the steading he was pitched on to the road and rendered unconscious. He died on the following Saturday. Mr Hall was a successful farmer, and was well-known at the various sale rings.
