Cobcroft, Maria (1846–1934)

One of the Hawkesbury's oldest and most respected identities, Miss Maria Cobcroft, passed away at Wilberforce on the 8th instant, at the ripe age of 87 years. A native of Colo, the deceased was a daughter of the late George and Maria Cobcroft, who were among our earliest pioneers. The late Miss Cobcroft, who had been ill for about three months prior to her demise, had lived at Wilberforce practically all her life. Mr. John Benjamin Cobcroft (Wilberforce) is a brother, and Mrs. C. A. Farlow (Windsor) and Mrs. George Johnston (Wilberforce) are sisters of the deceased. The remains were interred in the Church of England cemetery, Wilberforce, on Friday.
