Obituary - Mr. A. J. Crowe

16 June 1927 The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural and Mining Advocate

Out of the once sturdy family of nine 6-foot Australians, the Crowe's, of Gobarralong, only four now remain, Mr. Augustine F. Crowe, one of the younger members of the family, succumbing in St. Vincent's private hospital, Sydney, on Tuesday morning, after an operation he underwent the previous Sunday.

Born at Gobarralong 62 years ago, "Gus" Crowe was educated at St. Joseph's College, Hunter's Hill, and for three years in succession he was captain of the College first eleven.

In those days he was looked upon as the best wicket-keeper of all metropolitan school teams.

Taking up law, Mr. Crowe was admitted as a solicitor in 1893, and for some years practised his profession at Gundagai.

Over a quarter of a century ago he left here, and went to Sydney, where he practised his profession ever since.

His wife predeceased him, and he leaves a grown-up family of four sons and three daughters.

His surviving brothers are Messrs. Henry J. Crowe (Gobarralong), T. Crowe (Wyalong), James Crowe and Cyrus Crowe, and two sisters are Mrs. E. Brennan Eurobin, Gocup) and Miss N. Crowe (Gobarralong).

The funeral took place yesterday, the remains being interred in the R.C. cemetery, Rookwood.
