Cross, James Jeremiah (Jim) (1850–1874)

Yesterday a young man named James Cross, a farmer in this neighbourhood, was out shooting ducks a few miles down the Macintyre, in company with his nephew —a lad of 18 years, also named James Cross—and a youth named Boggs; a resident of this town. By some unfortunate and unexplained accident the double barrelled gun, which the nephew had, went off and lodged the full contents of a heavy charge of large duck shot in the face and neck of the uncle, causing immediate death. Mr. Jas. Cross was a native of the Hunter, and married but three months. He was a brother of Mr. George Cross, of the Ponds Creek.
