Boon, Alfred Nathaniel (1861–1923)

Mr Alfred Boon, who had lived the whole of his 62 years of life in this district, died in Sydney Hospital on Saturday, where he had been under treatment for some months past. For the last year he had been in failing health, and the doctors could do nothing for him. He was a native of Big Ben, South Gundagai, and was well known in the district as a fine man amongst stock, or on a horses' back. He was a younger brother of Mr Geo. Boon, who survives him. Two sisters (Mrs Job Smith and Mrs S. Crain) also survive. Deceased was a single man. His remains will be brought by train to Gundagai tomorrow (Tuesday) morning, and the burial will take place in the C.E. cemetery, South Gundagai.
