Annie Mary Bracker (1866–1914)

The death occurred at Clayfield on 5th instant of Mrs. W. Bracker, of Lesbrook, Inglewood, at the age of 48 years. The deceased lady was a member of a well-known and historical family of New South Wales. Her father was the late John Macarthur, who was a grandson of Governor King, and was for many years a pastoralist of Queensland, and afterwards Police magistrate. Her grandfather, Hannibal Hawkins McArthur, was one of those instrumental in laying the foundation of the sheep and wool industry of Australia, and who secured the medal in 1824 for the first exhibit of Australian wool in England, which medal is now in the possession of Mr E. H. McArthur. The deceased lady was of a lovable and retiring disposition, and leaves a large circle of friends to regret her early demise.
