Huxley, Edwin (1835–1907)

The death of Edwin Huxley took place at his daughter's (Mrs W. Alcorn's) residence, Pitt Town, on Wednesday of last week, at the ripe age of 71 years. The late Mr Huxley was a very old resident of Pitt Town, and was a brother of Mr Samuel Huxley, of Pitt Town, and Mr Thomas Huxley, of Penrith. He was ailing for some 12 months prior to his death from an internal growth, the suffering during the last few weeks being most intense, and death must have been a happy release to him. His wife predeceased him many years. He had a family of three children. One of the sons resides at Manilla, while the other is in the railway department at Darling Harbor, and the daughter is Mrs W. Alcorn, of Pitt Town. The funeral took place on the Thursday following, the interment taking place in the C. of E. cemetery, Pitt Town. Rev W. S. Newton officiated at the grave, and Mr J. W. Chandler conducted the funeral obsequies.
