Arndell, Mary (1829–1894)

We have to announce the death of a member of one of the oldest familes in the district — namely, that of Mrs [Mary] Thomas Arndell, of Caddai, which event took place at her late residence last Tuesday. Deceased was a daughter of the late Mr James Hall, of Caddai, and had been an invalid for the past two or three years. The Arndells are perhaps the oldest family in the district, and took a prominent part in connection with the building of the old Presbyterian Church at Ebenezer, and one of the oldest Churches in the colony. Deceased was about 63 years of age, and was related to the Hall, Johnston, and other well-known families in the district, and was much respected. Death was due to heart-disease. Deceased was interred in the family vault at Ebenezer on Thursday, the mourners journeying round by Windsor where the cortege was joined by numerous residents. The Rev J. Ayling conducted the burial service. Deceased was a prominent member of the Presbyterian Church. She leaves a family of four sons who are all in good positions in farming and commercial pursuits. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr T. Collison.
