Blundell, Elizabeth (1762–1831)

Yesterday, two of the oldest Settlers of this Island were borne to the grave, and a funeral of a similar kind perhaps never took place in this Colony. The name of John Blundell is well known among all the old hands, and his funeral, with that of his wife, was consequently well attended by the friends of the deceased. Old Blundell himself died after a very few days illness on Sunday last, and his wife who has been lingering and ailing for nearly two years, survived him but two days. The same grave served for this old pair, who have lived together nearly 44 years.
