Collins, Catherine (?–1826)

The body of a female, which has been identified as that of Catherine Connor [Collins], the wife of a settler who resided for some years in the neighbourhood of Windsor, was found floating in the Hawkesbury river, a few days back. When found, the body was secured to a stone, by a cord. The face retained marks of severe bruises, which seemed to have been inflicted by a tomahawk. A Coroner's Inquest has returned a verdict of — "Wilful murder against some person or person's unknown."
