The John Hume Cemetery

Submitted by Joy Fisher


This private burial ground was established by John Hume, the pioneer, on his country estate, "Tantatanara" ("Running Waters")

on the Southern railway two miles north of North Rome and about two miles east of the Oostanaula river. It is 1,500 feet northwest

of the old home. In this lonely spot, nurtured by the gentle breezes and the glamour of the long ago, sleep the following
