Charles M Cross

CATTAI NATIVE
LATE MR. CHARLES CROSS
PROMINENT HORSEMAN
THE grim reaper has made another sweep in the ranks of the fast thinning band of our old sturdy pioneers, this time Mr. Charles Cross, of 'Montrose,' Cattai, being the victim. He had been ill for sometime, and passed peacefully away at his home on Thursday evening, 18th instant, at the age of 75 years. Born at Cattai, where he had lived all his life, the late Charlie Cross, as he was known by his intimates, was a son of Edward Cross, one of our earliest pioneers. He was married at Ebenezer some 36 years ago to Sophia Jane Cross, who survives, and carried on farming and orcharding with a considerable amount of success. Latterly, however, he was obliged to relinquish laborious work owing to ill health. Quiet, unassuming and warm-hearted, the deceased was well-known and highly respected throughout the Hawkesbury. He was a man whose word was his bond, and in his early days, was one of the best horsemen in the district. He possessed a wide knowledge of animals, and loved his horse and his dog. He was ever ready and willing to hold out a helping hand to neighbors when they were in trouble with their stock, and in this respect he will be missed.  Those who knew him best admired him most.  The large number of district people that attended the funeral on Saturday, when the remains were laid to rest in the Church of England cemetery at Pitt Town, provided
ample evidence of the respect and esteem in which the deceased was held. The Rev. Stanley Howard, M.A., conducted the last sad rites, and Mr. Chandler was the undertaker.
