Cobcroft, Matilda Jane (1838–1901)

We regret to announce the death of Miss Matilda Cobcroft, of Iona, South Singleton, the sad event taking place in Sydney on Thursday last. The deceased lady was a daughter of the late Mr. John Cobcroft, of Charlton, one of the pioneers of this district, and sister to Miss Emma Cobcroft, of Iona, South Singleton, and to Mrs. Crockett, in the Muswellbrook district. She was highly esteemed for her many excellent qualities, being of a most charitable disposition. She took an active interest in Church matters, having been a devoted adherent of the Church of England. She was also connected with the Ladies' Relief Society and other charitable organisations, and her loss will be greatly felt by the poor of the district.
