A very old colonist died in Bendigo this morning. The deceased lady, Mrs Barrow, of Langley, Mansfield, had been on a visit to her son-in-law, Mr G. H. Watson, surveyor, and her death resulted from bronchitis and attendant ailments. Mrs Barrow was a colonist of 48 years standing and for many years resided at Runnymede with her deceased husband (Mr Henry Barrow) who was one of the pioneers of that district.
