Mary Josephine Dalglish (1876–1922)

from Sydney Stock and Station Journal

A fatal motor accident occurred on the Mummell-road on Friday. Mr. and Mrs. A. A. [Mary Josephine] Dalglish, of Pomeroy, were returning by car to their home after spending the day in Goulburn. Mr. Dalglish was driving. Near Mummell the car suddenly overturned and Mr. and Mrs Dalglish were pinned underneath. Fortunately, shortly after the accident, which occurred at about 7.30 p.m. Mr. Christian, driving the Goulburn-Crookwell service car, came on the scene and immediately rendered assistance.

A doctor was quickly summoned, but on his arrival he declared Mrs. Dalglish's life extinct. Mr. Dalglish was suffering greatly from shock.

Mrs. Dalglish before her marriage was a Miss Maxwell Scott, a relative of Sir Walter Scott. Her son is the owner of Millie Station, Charleville, Queensland.
