Lipscomb, George Sebright (1865–1931)

The death, occurred of Mr. George Sebright Lipacomb, at his residence, 10 Steam-street, ,West Maitland, last evening, at the ago of 60. He was the fifth son of the late Mr. William Lipscomb, and youngest brother of the late Mr. W. G. Lipscomb. He was born and lived all his life in the town, and will be missed by a wide circle of friends, for everyone who came in contact with him, loved him for his happy nature and charitable disposition, despite a life-long infirmity.

He had always been an ardent supporter at all outdoor sports, and, particularly of the old Albion Cricket Club, until club cricket was discontinued and district teams' competition inaugurated. He then was appointed patron of the Robins Club, in whose area he resided, and was a loyal supporter of both the Robins and Northern Division Club. For some years he was on the committee of the Huntor River District Cricket Association.

He is survived by two sisters. The funeral will leave St. Paul's Church, to-morrow morning at 10 .30, for the Campbell's Hill cemetery.
