Shanklin, Henrietta (1825–1915)

The death of Mrs. H.S. [Henrietta] Shanklin at Tipton station, Darling Downs, on Thursday, at the age of 87 years (our Toowoomba correspondent advised on August 6) removes another of the pioneers of Queensland. The late Mrs. H.S. Shanklin who was the last surviving child of the late Mr. George Bolton, was a sister of the late Mr. James Taylor and the late Mrs. Alford. The deceased lady was born in England, and came to Australia with her parents, who were among the first settlers on the Darling Downs. The Tipton property was taken up by her husband, who died many years ago. Mrs. Shanklin had, however, resided on the station ever since. She is survived by two of her children, Mrs. Marshall and Mr. Hugh Shanklin. The body was conveyed to Warwick for interment alongside the remains of her late husband.
