Gow, Ann (1832–1908)

The many friends of Mrs Ann Gow, late of Penrith, will regret to hear that she passed away on Thursday night last at Wollongong. The deceased lady and her late husband resided at Regentville for a very long time, and were most successful in the business of farming. Owing to Mr Gow's illness they let the farm, and he for a time resided in several localities. Returning to Penrith, where he had a store and large shed for produce, he intended carrying on the business of produce merchant. Illness, however, prevented this, and he passed away. The widow then resided on the premises for some time, but her son-in-law, Mr O. Towle, with one of her sons, having purchased a bakery business at Wollongong, she went to reside there. Deceased leaves a grown-up family.
