Cross, William (1797–1845)

We regret to announce, that Mr. William Cross expired on Tuesday afternoon last, at his residence in Macquarie street, in the 47th year of his age. For several months he had been afflicted with dropsy, and during the last three weeks, the symptoms of approaching dissolution were so apparent, that his medical advisers recommended an entire cessation from business. By his decease a vacancy occurs in our District Council. Mr. Cross was a friend to the destitute, a jovial companion, and a liberal and generous man. His funeral, we understand, will move from his residence, at two o'clock to-morrow afternoon.
