Janet Gregory (1844–1914)

Returning late last night from Cronulla, where he had gone on Saturday, the husband of Janet Gregory (65), of Alice-street, Newtown, found that she was dead. She had apparently died on Saturday night from natural causes. The gas was still burning in the bedroom, and the husband had to burst open the door to get in.
