Everall, Maria (1802–1870)

Our obituary to-day contains the notice of the death, at the ripe old age of sixty-eight years, of Mrs. Maria Everall, a Tasmanian colonist of sixty-one and a half-years' standing. Mrs. Everall, who was twice married, her previous name having been Mrs. Sharman, must have witnessed such changes in our social condition and progress as few who are still living amongst us are likely to see, and in her another witness of the past another link between us and the times that have gone – has passed to the grave. The remains of the deceased lady will be interred this afternoon.
