William Tom and John Lister
These men appear to be brothers or cousins but they are not the John Lister and William Tom who were part of the party which discovered gold in 1851 and who both died before 1905. The two men are from the Tom family which still owns the gold cradle, but which donated the nugget to the Orange Historical Society -- A.Davies, Curator of Photographs (2008)
