Jones, Catherine (1817–1896)

The late Mrs Catherine Jones, whose demise is referred to elsewhere, was another of the old Hawkesbury natives whose long life served as a connecting link with the buried past. She was born just below Sackville Reach, and was the relict of the late William Jones, whom she survived by a period of over 20 years. Deceased left a numerous string of relatives. She was the mother of 11 children, the grandmother of 80, and the great-grandmother of 40. The whole of her long life was spent on the Hawkesbury, and was greatly esteemed by all who knew her for her many estimable traits of character.
