Sharp, James Burleigh (1813–1887)

I regret to notice in the metropolitan papers the announcement of the death of Mr. James Burleigh Sharp, J.P., of Cliftonwood, Yass. The deceased gentleman was an old resident of this district, living for many years on his property, the Greenhills station, at present the home of his son, Mr. Henry J. Sharp, J.P. Mr. Sharp, sen., was one of the first Trustees appointed for the site on which the Literary Institute now stands, and it is only a few months since he resigned the post, at the request of the committee, in order that a local resident might be appointed.
