Buttsworth, Mary Ann (1843–1920)

from Windsor & Richmond Gazette (NSW)

A grand old Hawkesbury woman, Mrs. Mary Ann Buttsworth, passed away at Wilberforce on the 16th instant, at the age of 77 years. She was the widow of the late Josiah Buttsworth, and was born at Clifton, Clarendon. Two of her sons are Messrs. Ernest and Amos Buttsworth, of Wilberforce, and she was a sister of Mr. Thomas Wheeler, of North Richmond. The late Mrs. Buttsworth was a woman of beautiful character and deep religious convictions, and was beloved by a very large circle of friends. The remains were laid to rest in the Church of England cemetery at Wilberforce, Rev. G. P. Birk conducting the service. Rev. F. R. Todd (Methodist) delivered a touching address at the grave, and spoke of the deceased's many noble attributes. Mr. Chandler was the undertaker.
