from Pastoral Review, 16 November 1923

Mr. Osgood Henry Carter, who died on the 13th inst., at the age of 62, was the son of the late Canon T. G. Carter, of Linton, England, and nephew of the late Bishop Turner, of Grafton and Armidale.

Arriving in Australia from England at the age of 18, he entered the service of the Bank of New South Wales in Sydney, but several years later, with Mr. Joseph Scholes, he purchased the well-known property of Linton, eventually becoming sole proprietor. He leaves a widow and a grown-up family of six children—Messrs. T. G. Carter, P. J. Carter, and A. O. Carter, of Linton, Mrs. Noel Brown, of Melbourne, Mrs. Roy Suttor, of Bathurst, and Miss Joan Carter, of Linton. The deceased took an interest in all that made for the welfare of the district. For a term he occupied the position of president of the local P., A., and H. Society. He was also at one time a member of the local Licensing Board, and the Tamworth District Pastures Protection Board, and only recently relinquished these positions owing to ill-health. He was also a member of the local Masonic fraternity.

The funeral took place at Barraba on October 16, and the esteem in which he was held was evidenced by the large number who attended. In addition to the Church of England service, the Worshipful Master performed the last rites of the Masonic Order, in the presence of a large number of the brethren, who preceded the remains to the graveside.
