Hume – January 9 at his residence, Crumlin, George Alexander Hume, M.D., coroner, aged 60 years. Interment to take place in Crumlin Burying-ground, on Tuesday morning, at eleven o’clock.

The Vacant Coronership in County Antrim.

The death of Dr. Hume, of Crumlin, causes a vacancy in the County Coroners of Antrim; and it is very generally known that Dr. Mussen, of Glenavy, is a candidate. Dr. Mussen is a member of one of the oldest families resident in the county, among the original settlers in the parish of Derriaghy, brought thither by Sir Fulke Conway after he obtained a grant of the property; and from that time till present the Mussens have discharged all the obligations of citizenship with scrupulous fidelity. Dr. Mussen has had a long and extensive practice as Dispensary Doctor in the district, and is eminently qualified professionally to discharge the duties of the important office of coroner. He is a gentleman highly respected by all classes in the community; and he has become a candidate at the request of his numerous friends in all religious and political denominations. Of his return there is not the shadow of a doubt; and this being the case it is believed he will have a walk over; but should there be a contest for the vacant office, the gentry and farmers of the County Antrim will show their attachment to Dr. Mussen by electing him to a position to which he is so well entitled, and for the discharge of the duties of which he is so admirably qualified.

Death of Dr. Hume.

The news of the demise of Dr. Hume will be received with much regret in the district in which he resided for many years and by his numerous friends in other parts of the country. The deceased gentleman was coroner of one of the districts of the County Antrim for a period of some fifteen years, and his discharge of his official duties was marked by great ability and dignity. He had a very extensive practice in his profession, and his many estimable qualities gained for him a widespread popularity. He had been in indifferent health during the past year, and his death was not altogether unexpected. He was in his sixtieth year, and leaves a widow and five children to mourn his loss.

The following is an extract from the Belfast Newsletter dated Wednesday 14th January 1880 and appears with permission of the Belfast Newsletter.

Funeral of Dr. George Alexander Hume – The remains of this highly-respected gentleman were conveyed yesterday from his late residence, Crumlin, for interment in the family burying-ground near that town. The funeral cortege was very large and representative, there being a numerous attendance of clergymen, medical gentlemen, tenant farmers from the surrounding district. The coffin, which was of oak, with massive brass mountings, was placed in the hearse at ten o’clock. The cortege then proceeded to the Presbyterian Church, and on arriving the coffin was borne into the church, where service was conducted by the Rev. Mr. Canning. At the conclusion of the service the coffin was again placed in the hearse and conveyed to the graveyard, where the Rev. Mr. Lyle, Muckamore, officiated. The coffin bore the following inscription: "George Alexander Hume, died 9th January, 1880, aged 60 years."
