Tardent, Emily (1864–1916)

Mrs. Paul [Emily] Tardent, whom we reported on Tuesday as having died after a short illness, had in reality been ill for about five years, for the last three of which she had been quite an invalid (says the Toowoomba Chronicle.) Deceased was a native of Kilburn, London, and came to Queensland some 25 years ago. She was a daughter of the late John Hillier, who only predeceased her by one year. Her first husband was Mr. Harry Dalton, of Ipswich, and two of his children survive, in the persons of Mr. S. J. Dalton (of Railway Department, Toowoomba), and Miss V. Dalton. Of the second marriage there is one child surviving, Lexie Tardent, aged 11. Mrs. W. Gee, of Ipswich, and Mrs. Talentire, and Mr. Richard Hillier (of Sydney) are the remaining sisters and brother of the late Mrs. Tardent.
