Henry Buttsworth (1822–1900)

We have this week to report the death of a very old and respected resident of Currency Creek, in the person of Mr. Henry Buttsworth, which event took place on Friday last. Deceased had been ill for a long time, and at the time of his death was 78 years of age. He was a native of the district, and had resided here nearly all his life. The funeral took place on Sunday morning last, and was very largely attended. The remains were interred in the Wilberforce Church of England cemetery. The Rev. W. T. Newton conducted the funeral service, and Mr. E. W. Dunstan carried out the funeral arrangements.
