Mary Cribb (1837–1919)

Born at Sackville Reach, Hawkesbury River, 82 years ago, Mrs. Mary Cribb died at Bankstown yesterday at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Fox. The deceased lady had many descendants in the Australian lighting forces, 12 of whom were great-grandchildren. She was a very well-known Hawkesbury identity, and it used to be her proud boast that she had never had a day's illness.
