Windred, Sophia (1796–1871)

Mrs. Windred, senior, a resident of the Western district, died last week at the age of 83. The Examiner says the deceased, we are given to understand, was one of the oldest natives of the colony; indeed, we believe, the oldest save one, and was born in Windsor in the year 1788[1]. Notwithstanding her great age, Mrs. Windred was remarkably active until within the last twelve months, when her health began to fail, and in possession of faculties of an inordinarily strong and robust nature.
