William Berry (1800–1875)

The Shoalhaven News of Saturday chronicles the death of Hr. William Berry, of Coolaogatta, which took pplace on Wednesday last, the 20th instant, after a painful illness of some months, but having full possession of his faculties to the last. The deceased gentleman was the youngest brother of the late Alexander Berry, who died en the 17th September 1873, and the junior brother of David Berry, Esq., of Coolangatta, who, we understand, is now the only surviving member of the family. Mr. William Berry was born in Fifeshire, Scotland in the early part of the year 1800 and consequently was in the 76th year of his age. He came to this country about 45 years ago, and has been at Coolangatta ever since.
