Chaseling, Mary Jane (1821–1888)

An inquest was held by the Coroner (Mr. J. B. Johnston, J.P.) at Lower Portland, on the 14th instant, on the body of Mrs. Mary Jane Chaseling, who died suddenly on the day previous. On Dr. Hozier's evidence, the Jury found that the cause of death was "apoplexy." Mrs. Chaseling was an old resident of Lower Portland, and was much respected by a large circle of acquaintances throughout the district. Deceased was the widow of the late Mr. Chaseling, and was 67 years of age. She leaves a number of grown-up sons and daughters, all of whom are in good positions. Her funeral was largely attended, the interment taking place at Lower Portland.
