Everingham, Martha Elizabeth (1842–1916)

The death took place at Bungawalbyn on Saturday last of a highly respected resident of Coraki, in the person of Mrs. M. E. [Martha Elizabeth] Everingham, relict of the late Josiah Everingham, at the advanced age of 73 years. Up till a few months ago deceased led an active life, but she then contracted pneumonia, and though she rallied for a time, several bereavements in her family added to her trouble, and she gradually sank and passed away as above stated. She leaves a family of one son and five daughters to mourn their loss, her husband having predeceased her about six years ago. The funeral on Sunday was largely attended, the remains being laid to rest in the Methodist portion of the Coraki cemetery. The burial was performed by the Revs. J. Wadkin (Nimbin) and R. Taylor (Coraki).
