Ellem, Charlotte (1802–1885)

Mrs Charlotte Ellem who died on Monday last at the residence of her son, Alumny Creek, may truly be said to have been a remarkable woman. A native of the Hawkesbury, she was born as far back as 1802, and was, therefore, in her 84th year; and two brothers are still living there. She had a family of nine sons and two daughters, and at the time of her death had 88 grandchildren, and 65 great-grandchildren; and the large number of 46 relatives were present at her funeral.
