Anne Gall (1849–1922)

Death has claimed another very old and highly respected resident of Moree in the person of Mrs. [Anne] Gall, wife of Mr. Edward Gall, of Gwydirfield, who died at her home yesterday. The deceased was 73 years of age and leaves a husband, five sons (Messrs. Charles, Samuel, Leslie, Henry and Norman) and seven daughters (Mesdames J. T. Crane, W. R. Scott, J. S. Cornell, Hooke, Thompson, Geddes, and Miss Gall) to mourn their loss.

The deceased was one of the oldest residents of the district and was highly esteemed by a large circle of friends. For some time past Mrs. Gall had not enjoyed the best of health, and her demise was not unexpected. She always took an active interest in all matters connected with her family and grandchildren, and was a mother in the purest sense of the word. She will be sorely missed by her husband and children.

Mrs. Gall was a sister of Mrs. W. J. Gall, Tycannah, and Mr. John Munro, the latter being for many years postmaster at Moree.

The late Mrs. Gall was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and arrived in Sydney with her parents in 1857. The funeral took place this morning, the remains being laid to rest in the Church of England portion of the cemetery, the Rev. J S. H. Cawte administering the last sad rites. The mortuary arrangements were carried out by Messrs. Logan & Co.
