Chisholm, Phoebe Aphrasia (1845–1910)

Mrs. A. Seton [Phoebe Aphrasia] Chisholm, of Victoria-street, died at her late residence at ten o'clock on Friday morning at the age of 66 years. She had not been well recently and her condition gave her friends cause for great anxiety. The immediate cause of death was heart failure. Deceased was a daughter of the late Mr. Raymond, who was for several years the manager of the Union Bank in Sydney. She leaves three daughters, all married. They are Mrs. Norman Alston, who as Miss Birdie Chisholm was well-known as a vocalist, Mrs. Henry Baird, of Bowral, and Mrs. Arthur Onslow, of Sydney. Her remains will be interred alongside those of her late husband, Mr. A. Seton Chisholm, in the Church of England portion of the general cemetery.
