Johnston, Eliza Mary (1860–1930)

Having reached the allotted span of three score years and ten, the death took place at her late residence, "Spring Hill," Windsor, on the 6th instant, of Mrs. Eliza Hall Johnston, relict of the late James Bligh Johnston, who was district coroner for the Hawkesbury for many years before he died in 1925. The late Mrs. Johnston came from a family whose progenitors go back to the very early days of New South Wales. She was a daughter of the late John Hall, and was born at 'Merry Mount,' Ebenezer. Married at Pitt Town about 52 years ago, she reared a family of four sons and seven daughters, all of whom are well-known in the Hawkesbury district. One son, Mr. H. S. Johnston, is following in the footsteps of his father as our present District Coroner, and another son, Staunton, was killed at the war in 1918. The funeral took place on Thursday, the remains being interred in the historic Presbyterian cemetery at Ebenezer. Rev. R. C. Lawton was the officiating clergyman.
