Cobcroft, Anne (1832–1899)

The death is announced, we sincerely regret to say, of Mrs Adam Cobcroft, of Charlton, Bulga, at the age of 67. The deceased was the relict of the late Adam Cobcroft, who died some 15 years ago. She was a native of County Clare, Ireland, but when she came to this district with her people she was only six years of age, so that she was a very old resident. Mrs Cobcroft, who leaves a grown-up family of three children, died very suddenly on Tuesday night, her end being due to failure of the heart's action. Her remains will be interred in the R.C. Cemetery, Singleton, this morning.
