Death of Mrs. Ann Garland.

Mrs. Ann Garland died at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. T. Pascoe, senior, of Orange Grove, Allynbrook, on Thursday last, the 19th instant, at the ripe age of 94 years and 11 months. She was a native of the Hawkesbury River and her parents died when she was a child. She was brought to Newcastle and reared where she was married in 1832 to the late Thos. Garland and two years later left Newcastle with her husband to take up their abode at the late Mr. Charles Boydell's at Camyr Allyn. She took passage in a sailing boat for Paterson a trip which occupied eleven days, and was thought a quick run in those times and one day more found them at Mr. Boydell's. She was the first white woman that went to Gresford and has resided on the Allyn and Paterson Rivers ever since.

She had ten sons and two daughters, and seven of the sons are dead leaving Chas. Garland of Allynbrook, Jas. Garland of Bolwarra, Thos. Garland of Singleton, and two daughters Mrs. Thos.
