Martin, Ann (1804–1888)

Mrs Ann Martin, who died on the 28th of July, was, at the time of her death, 85 years of age. She was a native of the district, and it will be interesting to our readers to know that she was the head of a family numbering 209–viz, 12 children, 87 grandchildren, and 109 great-grandchildren. She was the relict of the late Charles Martin, who died some two years ago at the ripe age of 91 years. The Hawkesbury District is noted for the longevity of its natives, and these particulars might be noted as further proofs that such is the case. It is stated that during her lifetime, Mrs Martin never had occasion to go out of the Hawkesbury District, and never did do so.
