Chisholm, Mary (1785–1817)

Died—This evening, about seven o'clock, after a lingering illness, which she bore with Christian fortitude and resignation, Mrs. Mary Chisholm, wife of Mr. James Chisholm, of George-street, Sydney, aged 32 years. The universal benevolence which formed the leading characters of every action of her life, will long endear her memory to an extensive circle of valuable acquaintance and friends.
