Booth, Samuel Marsden (1842–1899)

from Cumberland Argus (Parramatta, Sydney)

Mr. Samuel Marsden Booth, brother of an ex-Mayor of Parramatta, the late Mr. Jos. Booth, died at Enmore on Saturday last, at the age of 57 years. Deceased, who was a Catechist, in connection with the Church of England, had been a great sufferer of late with a troublesome affection of the leg. Several operations had been found necessary; and at last it had been deemed wise to amputate. The operation, which was conducted at Prince Alfred Hospital, took place some months ago; but Mr. Booth failed again, despite the relief given, and died, as we have already stated, at end of last week. The funeral took place on Monday at the Rookwood C. E. Cemetery, the Rev. C. C. Dunstan, whom Mr. Booth had been assisting of late reading the burial service at the grave. A number of choice wreaths were laid upon the coffin, and a number of friends from Parramatta attended the funeral.
