    • Ref:The Argus (Melbourne, Vic. : 1848 - 1956) Monday 9 May 1898 p 6 Article "Mr. William Cumming, of Mount Fyans Station, died on Saturday evening, and his body will be brought to Geelong for interment on Monday. The deceased, who brought the Mount Fyans clip into prominence at a bound in the sixties, was one of three brothers, all of whom are now deceased. His wife, who was a daughter of the late Mr. Burrows, one of Geelong's early mayors, survives him, and he leaves a family of sons and daughters. During the past few years Mr. Cumming has carried on business under the style of W. Cumming and Son, and he left much of the management to his son, Mr. W. B. Cumming. He was a man who did good in an unostentatious way, and, though his name is known throughout Australia, he was of too retiring a disposition to force himself into public life. Mr. Cumming went to Mount Fyans over forty years ago, and was about 67 years of age at the time of his death."
