Macpherson, Jessie (Jessy) (1790–1847)

At her residence, in Castlereagh-street, Sydney, on the 10th of June, in the 58th year of her age, of dysentery, after 7 weeks of exhausting suffering, which she endured with truly patient and Christian fortitude, which she had also previously exhibited in many severe illnesses with which it had been the will of the Almighty to afflict her, Jessy, the most dearly beloved wife of William Macpherson, Esq., of Blairgowrie, in Scotland, and Clerk of the Legislative Council of New South Wales, and eldest sister of Major General Sir William Chalmers, K.C.B., of Glenericht, near Blairgowrie. By her disconsolate husband and relatives her loss will be long and most deeply deplored; and kindly recollections of her truly amiable, frank, cheerful, obliging, and benevolent disposition, will long be cherished by a numerous circle of friends and acquaintances.
