Elizabeth Everingham (1827–1890)

On Wednesday, night Mrs. W. [Elizabeth] Everingham died at the residence of her son Albert, Nana Creek road, at the age of 63. The cause of death was cancer, and deceased, though a great sufferer, bore her illness with fortitude. Mrs. Everingham was a daughter of the late Mr. G. Everingham, well known on the Hawkesbury. She was a native of that district, from whence she went to the Macleay, and then to the Clarence, where she resided for about 16 years. Deceased leaves four sons and two daughters, and a large circle of relations to mourn their loss. Her mortal remains were interred in the Grafton cemetery yesterday.
