The deceased lady was a daughter of the late Mr. David Cross, of Windsor, and is the last but one of a family of twelve. Coming to lnverell with her husband and family about 56 years ago, she made her home, and has resided here ever since. Besides her family of eleven sons and daughters, she leaves 100 grandchildren and great-grandchildren. The burial took place in the Church of England cemetery on Wednesday at 3 p.m., and was largely attended. Rev. L. Gabbott performed the last rites.
