Crawford, William (1845–1923)

The death of Mr. William Crawford, an old resident of this district, occurred at Berry Hospital on Saturday night at the advanced age of 78 years. The cause of death was attributable to a paralytic stroke which he suffered recently, prior to which he had enjoyed good health although lameness caused him inconvenience. The deceased was a native of Ireland and came to Australia about 50 years ago when he was in the employ of Sir. R. Aberdeen, sen., and the late Mr. T. McPhee at Pyree. The late Mr. Crawford never married; Messrs. Joe. Robert and James are brothers of his. The interment took place on Monday in the Methodist portion of the Nowra public cemetery where a large circle of old friends attended to pay their last tribute of respect, the rites at the graveside being conducted by the Rev. F. H. McGowan.
