Josephine Maria Gibson (1834–1923)

The death occurred this morning at Burrumbuttock of Mrs. Thomas Gibson, of Burrumbuttock Station, aged 90 years. Her husband, who died six years ago, was one of the original graziers in the southern part of the State, and one of the most extensive holders of land, his properties including Burrumbuttock and Bulgandra stations, two of the best holdings in the southern district. The family held these estates for sixty years. The Gibsons were members of the well-known pastoral family of Goulburn district, where they hold extensive estates, and the late Mrs. Gibson was a daughter of De Lauret, another leading pastoralist of the Goulburn district. Throughout her long life Mrs. Gibson contributed substantially to all district charities.
