Rachel Carlier (1840–1930)

The death of Mrs. Rachael Carlier, which occurred at her residence, High street, Glenelg, on Wednesday, added another to the list of old colonists who have passed away recently. Mrs. Carlier came to South Australia in the days of pioneers, and lived at the Burra during the time mining was carried on in that town, also at Broken Hill and Port Pirie, before settling at Glenelg. The members of the family who survive are her sons, Mr F. A. Hince, of Glenunga; Mr. W. E. N. Hince, or Broken Hill; and Mrs. Geo. Cattrall, of Forestville; Miss. P. Hill, of Port Pirie; and Mrs. Alice Warhurst, of St. Peters.
