Richard Edwards (1851–1891)

Another of the residents of Narellan passed away rather suddenly on Sunday, 29th ultimo. I refer to Mr. Richard Edwards of "Ross Trevor," Narellan. The deceased gentleman had been suffering for some years from heart disease, and was quite a recent arrival in Narellan, having some time ago carried on business as a chemist in Sydney, but retired. His remains were conveyed to Windsor, and interred in the Church of England Cemetery there on Wednesday last, 1st instant. Mr. Edwards leaves a wife and young family to mourn their sad loss.
