DEATH OF AN OLD LAGGAN RESIDENT. A Hadley (Laggan) correspondent writes— On 30th August there passed away, in Mr. John Sharwood, a highly respected and old district resident. The deceased gentleman had a long illness. His remains were interred in the Bolong cemetery on August 31 in the presence of a very large number of people, the Rev. Mr. Hawkins officiating at the graveside. The late Mr. Sharwood was born at the Abercrombie River 60 years ago, and lived most of his life at his late residence, the Hadley receiving office. He was well known as the mail contractor on the Laggan-Hadley route, being on the route for over 20 years. Being of a kindly and jovial disposition, his loss will be felt by hosts of friends in this particular district, as well as by many others in the tract of country between Goulburn and Bathurst, where he was well known and universally respected. He leaves a widow and large family, to whom the sympathy of the district has gone forth. He was tended patiently and unremittingly all through his illness by his devoted wife. The following are the married members of the late Mr. Shar wood's family :—Mrs. J. J. Russell (Mt. David), Mrs. George Russell (Bathurst), Mrs. J. Smith (Fullerton), Mrs. M. Croker (Fullerton), Mrs. W. Pearce (Rockgrove), and Mr. Charles Sharwood (Trunkey).
