Arndell, Louisa (1839–1888)

On tbe night of Monday, the 21st of May, the wife of Mr. James A. [Louisa] Arndell, of Glen Dhu, Timor, expired at her husband's residence. The deceased had suffered for years from an agonising internal complaint, seeking the best medical advice; but finding slight relief till death put an end to her sufferings upon the night named. Mrs. Arndell was a native of the Hunter, and widely related throughout that valley, having been Miss Louisa McDougall, a daughter of the late Mr. McDougall, of Kelso, Singleton, and cousin of the McDougalls of Dunolly and Lorn, and also of the Doyles of Kaloudah. One of Mrs. Arndell's sisters is Mrs. Robert Doyle, of Werriston, Werris Creek; Mrs. F. R. White, of Harben Vale, is a sister-in-law; and when I mention that other connexions are the Fairbairns, Loders, and Dights, one will see how many families are affected by this solitary death. Mrs. Arndell was a member of the Presbyterian Church. She was buried at Haydonton, the Rev. W. Frazer, of Murrurundi, officiating at the grave.
