Cross, Alexander George (1837–1909)

On Wednesday, February 24, a sad fatality happened as the s.s. Warragamba was on her trip to the Perry from St. Albans. Mr Alexander George Cross, 71 years of age, who was a passenger on board, accidentally fell overboard, and, although he was a good swimmer, he failed to reach the shore. On the 25th the district coroner, Mr H. A. Wilson, J.P., held an inquiry into the cause of death, when a verdict of accidentally drowned was returned.
