Alders, Robina (1818–1898)

Mrs. Rubena [Robina] Alders, a very old resident of the district, died rather suddenly at the residence of her son-in-law, Mr. C. Sutherland, J.P., Seven Oakes, on Tuesday, 27th ult., at the advanced age of 90. Mrs. Alders was a native of Leith, Scotland, and was married to the late Mr. E. Alders, of Port Macquarie, soon after her arrival in the colony, some 65 years ago. Of a family of one son and ten daughters, seven of the latter survive her. Her remains were interred on Wednesday, 28th ult., at West Kempsey cemetery, Rev. R. H. D. Kelly reading the funeral service, and a goodly number of relatives and friends being present.
