Previously all stock had to be driven down the main street of the town to reach the sale yards.
Thomas was a local preacher for many years for the Methodist Church, preaching also in the Baptist Church, and often travelling long distances to the place of service. In the early days at Pancharpoo, he and his sisters started the tunes and led the singing before the time of organs
