Mileham, Susannah (1795–1885)

There is a proverb which states that "Annuitants live long." An instance thereof is furnished by the case of a lady whose death was recorded in this journal on the 25th instant, Mrs. Susannah Mileham, widow of Assistant-Surgeon Mileham, who departed this life at the "Oaks," Camden, on the 20th June last, having attained her 90th year. The deceased lady has been in receipt of an annuity from the Government of the colony of £100 since September, 1824, or 60 years and upwards, a circumstance certainly without a precedent in the colony.
