Death 1899/C03860 Cairns Thomas - David Cairns - Margaret - ** born Scotland aged 88 years

The Brisbane Courier (Qld. : 1864 - 1933) - Wednesday 18 October 1899 p. ???
On Sunday morning last one of the oldest identities of Bulimba, Cressbrook, and the Valley, Mr. Thomas Cairns, died at the residence of his youngest daughter, Mrs. W. J. P. Cooksley, Cairnville, Toorak, Breakfast Creek. The deceased gentleman attained the patriarchal age of 88 years and 7 months.

He was buried at Nundah but I can't find the date nor can I find the above article to get the page number.

I have the funeral notice for his wife.
