Ann Eliza Carter (1850–1889)

Early on the morning of the 30th of May, 1889, at the Argyle Hotel, Hamilton, the beloved wife of George Carter, Condah, aged 39 years, after a long and painful illness, which she endured with great patience. Her funeral took place on Friday and, not withstanding the inclemency of the weather, a very large gathering followed her to the grave to show their last token of respect; a cortege of, I think, nearly 15 chains long. Almost every one in the surrounding district followed. The service was read by Mr. H. Cooke, and he tried hard to impress upon all present the necessity of seeking a preparation for death. Her end was peace.
