Elizabeth Hall (1825–1911)

Mrs Elizabeth Hall, relict of of the late Mr William Smith Hall, and mother of Hawkesbury's popular Member, Mr Brinsley Hall, M.L.A., succumbed on Saturday last to an illness of about two month's duration. She died at 'Lilburndale,' Sackville, where she had lived for the past two years. For many years the family resided at 'Bungool,' Cattai, the family home being now in the occupation of Mr B. Hall, whose sons carry on a dairy farm there. The late Mrs Hall was a native of the Macdonald river, and a daughter of the late Mr Henry Fleming. Her long life of 86 years was spent in doing good, and she was beloved by all who knew her for her amiable disposition and charitable nature. She had a family of six sons and two daughters, all of whom predeceased her but Mr Brinsley Hall, who is the only surviving member of a highly respected family. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, the remains being tenderly laid to rest in the family vault at the historic Ebenezer Presbyterian cemetery. The funeral was the largest ever seen at Ebenezer. Rev. D. Baird carried out the last sad rites and Mr J. W. Chandler conducted the funeral.
