Stow, Wycliffe (1834–1897)

A telegram from our Port Pirie correspondent conveys the intelligence of the death at that town on Tuesday of Mr. Wycliffe Stow. The deceased gentleman was a son of the late Mr. T. Q. Stow, the father of Congregationalism in South Australia, with whom he arrived in the colony in 1837 . He was well known to residents of the Northern Territory, as he had spent many years in that portion of the colony. For some time he had been residing with his elder brother, Mr. J. P. Stow, S.M. of Port Pirie. The funeral took place on Wednesday.
