Booth, Henry Thomas (1859–1921)

Mr. Henry Thomas Booth, whose death was briefly referred to in our issue of the 11th instant, died at the Peninsula, Windsor, at the age of 61 years. Some years ago he was engaged as a trader on the Hawkesbury and Colo Rivers, and, marrying Mrs. Esther Amelia Ridge, of Putty and Colo, about 13 years ago, settled down at Upper Colo. Later they resided on a farm at Freeman's Reach, which Mr. Booth worked, and then went to Cornwallis, where Mrs. Booth had bought a property. Subsequently they leased this farm and came to Windsor. The late Mr. Booth had been suffering for about two years, but it was only three weeks before his death that he was confined to his bed through paralysis. The remains were interred in St. Matthew's, Church of England cemetery, Rev. N. Jenkyn conducting the service. Mr. Chandler was the undertaker. The deceased's father, who resides at Quaker's Hill, and is 87 years of age, attended the funeral.
