Alfred M. Salom (1869–1899)

The news of the death of Mr. Alfred M. Salom, of North Adelaide, came as a sad surprise to his large circle of friends. He was apparently in the enjoyment of the best of health until about a week ago, when symptoms of typhoid developed, and on Sunday death ensued. The deceased gentleman, who was a son of Mr. Maurice Salom, was in his 31st year. Mr. Salom has lost three of his sons from typhoid, one only about six months ago. The deceased made many friends during his wanderings in the West, in banking circles in Adelaide, and also in the football arena as a player for the Adelaides. The funeral left Brougham Place, North Adelaide, at 4 o'clock on Monday afternoon. The cortege was a long one, and the Rabbi (Rev. A. T. Boas) conducted the service. The chief mourners were Messrs. M. Salom (father), H., B., and W. Salom (brothers), and L. Saber and Harris (brothers-in law). Amongst those present were Messrs. V. L. Solomon, W. Griffiths and B. Wood (members of the House of Assembly), L. Isaacs (president), I. Asher (treasurer), M. J. Solomon, W. Lazarus, and. S.
