Mrs. Christina Webster

A grand old district pioneer in the person of Mrs. Christina Webster (relict of the late Edward Alexander Webster), passed away on Wednesday last, 7th inst., at the home of her daughter, Mrs. D. G. Clements, "Woolbrook," Bigga. The deceased had reached the ripe old age of 90 years and eight months and had lived for the whole of that time in the Binda-Bigga district.

This fine old lady had seen unfold many pages of the history of the Crookwell district. Born Christina Robertson at "Markdale," Binda, in 1849 she spent her girlhood in that district, later to marry Edward Alexander Webster, of "Chatsworth," Binda. Her husband predeceased her in 1903, but Mrs. Webster lived on at "Chatsworth," until the property was sold about 1920, when she came to live with her daughter, Mrs. D. G. Clements, at "Woolbrook," Bigga.

Of a family of eight sons and two daughters, seven survive her. These are: Horace (Eastwood), Cyril (Concord). Harry (Bigga), Victor (Bathurst), Alex (Cowra), Robert (Macquarie Fields), and Ivy (Mrs, D. G. Clements, Bigga). The deceased members of the family are Alfred, James and Eva.
