Some other Oddy Marriages & Deaths in Tumut.


Tumut has lost one of oldest and most respected residents in the person oŁ Mr Charles Oddy, whose death occurred at his residence, West Blowering, yeaterday, at the ripe old age oŁ 75 years, the cause of death being heart failuro following on senile decay.

As far back as 1841, he, with his father, John Oddy, came to Tumut. At that time Messrs George Shelley and Thomas MoAlister went largely into dairying, and Mr Oddy's father was their principal milkman and for a time shepherded sheep for Mr. George Shelley. The deceased when he grew up started farming at Tumut Plains on what was then Crown lands.

Later he went to the Kiandra gold rush just alter it started, did well and came back and selected the home where he died.

In about 1905 he married Miss Eliza Osmond, sister of Mr James Osmond, who at one time ran the Star Hotel in Tumut. The result of the union was 6 sons, viz: Alvie, John Charles, Frederick, George and William, all of Tumut (George accidentaly shot himself, and two daughters, via ; Mrs J Johnson, Tumut, and Mrs J Reardon, Goolgardie.

The whole family were always a most invited and have always been respected for the good character they havo always striven to maintain. Tne departed and his estemable wife were always noted for their kindly hospitality, and the one-time occupant of the vaoant chair will be deeplv missed in the locality where he lived so long.

The funeral takes place this evening at 4 o'clock, the place of interent being the Church of England portion of the new cemetery. We tender the bereaved ones our deepest sympathy: —

Call not back the dear departed.

Anohored sale where storms are over,

On the borderland we left him,

Soon to meet and part no more.

Far beyond this world of changes,

Far beyond this world of care,

Wo shall find

-our missing loved one

In our Father's mansion fair. - (Ref- Adelong and Tumut Express and Tumbarumba Post (NSW : 1900 - 1925)(about) Previous issue Friday 6 December 1912 Page2).
