George Carter (1853–1927)

The death took place at his residence, Condah, on 23rd inst., of ex-Cr. George Carter, J.P. He was in his 75th year, and had been ailing for only a few days. He was one of the best known men in the Condah district, where he had resided continuously for a period of 26 years. He took a very keen interest in public affairs, and was associated with almost every public body in the town. He was never afraid to express his opinions, and always called a spade a spade. He had many likable qualities, and a large circle of acquaintances will mourn his death. A large number gathered at the graveside to pay their last tribute of respect to the deceased gentleman.
