Kezia Attewell (1840–1916)

Many Rivers folk will regret to learn of the death of Mrs. [Kezia] Attewell (relict of the late Mr. S. Attewell, of Empirevale). The old lady, who was upwards of 70 years of age, was a native of the Hawkesbury, and with her husband settled at Empirevale about 36 years ago, where the family was widely respected. Messrs. George Atewell (Tweed), Joseph, Albert, and John, of Empirevale, and William, of Ballina, are sons of Mrs. Attewell.
