Sharp, Alfred (1877–1927)

Alfred Sharp, aged 49, died at his residence, Mitchell-street, Dubbo, early yesterday morning after 19 months' lingering illness. Deceased, who was born at Larras Lake, came to Dubbo almost seven years ago from Canbelego, where he had been occupied in mining work, and had contracted the disease that eventually led to his sickness and death. The late Mr. Sharp leaves a widow, four sons and four daughters, for whom deep sympathy will be felt by a large number of friends in Dubbo. The family ranges from 29 years of age to 7. The sons are Charles (Canbelego), George (Dubbo), Frederick (Merriwagga), and William (Dubbo), and the daughters the Misses Vera, Hazel, Gloria and Phyllis, all of Dubbo. The deceased was a brother of Mrs. F. Coffee, of Darling-street, Mrs. Dave Coffee, of Trangie, Mrs. E. M. Wilson and Mrs. J. Gardiner, both of West Australia. His brothers are Charles and George, both of Orange. The late Mr. Sharp was married to Miss Sarah Jane Balfour, at that time of Orange. The funeral took place at 10 o'clock this morning, the Rev. Bernard Deane holding a service at the deceased's late residence, and later officiating at the graveside, where there was a large attendance of friends and relatives. The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Mr. J. R. Tighe.
