Buttsworth, Josiah (1836–1914)

Josiah Buttsworth passed away at his late residence, Wilberforce, on Thursday night, after an illness extending over two or three years, the immediate cause of death being bronchitis. A native of the district, deceased was one of the sturdy-type of Hawkesburyite, and was much esteemed. He was 78 years of age, and was the last of the old Buttsworth family. He was twice married. His first wife was Miss Ann Cavanah [Cavanough], and the issue was a family of six, three of whom predeceased their father. Those living are: Victoria, Josiah and Elizabeth. His second wife was Miss Mary Ann Wheeler, of North Richmond, who survives her husband. The family are Ernest, Amos, Lucy, and Theopholis. The funeral, which took place on Friday afternoon, was largely attended, the remains being interred in the Church of England cemetery at Wilberforce. Rev J. Cherry officiated at the grave, and Mr. J. W. Chandler had charge of the mortuary arrangements.
