Sydney Crane (1854–1932)

The death occurred in the Gundagai Hospital yesterday, of a well-known identity of Gundagai and district in the person of Mr. Sydney Crane, of Edwardstown. The deceased suffered from a weak heart, which was the main cause of his demise. The late gentleman was in his young days a notable figure with his bullock teams and waggons. He was noted as one of the best, and reliable drivers that the district possessed. He was 77 years of age, and was married twice, his first wife was a Miss Fuller, and his second a Miss Boon from South Gundagai. There were seven children of the first marriage, four of them now living; and six of the second, two of whom survive.
