Hall, Catherine (1820–1894)

At the morning service yesterday, Rev. P. Norman, Presbyterian Minister, referred in eulogistic terms to the late Mrs. Hall. The funeral also took place yesterday afternoon. A short service was held in the house first, and then the remains of the deceased lady were conveyed to Dartbrook private cemetery where she was interred beside her husband, who had gone before. The pallbearers were Messrs. G. P. Hall, F. C. Hall, E. H. Hall, and Jas. Dight, the three former being three sons and the latter a son-in-law of the deceased. Rev. P. Norman officiated at the grave, and in the course of his address referred to the many excellent qualities of the departed lady. She was a true Christian, and to such death was robbed of all its terrors. Rev. D. W. Davies, of Hinton, and Rev. J. S. Laing, of Muswellbrook, were present, the former being a son-in-law of the late Mrs. Hall. The coffin bore the words 'Catherine Hall, died 11th August, 1894, aged 74 years,' and on it were a number of beautiful wreaths, the gifts of relatives and friends. The funeral was largely attended, although had the notice been more generally circulated the attendance would have been much larger.
