A very old one-time resident of the Hawkesbury, in the person of Mrs Hannah Hall, died at the residence of her daughter (Mrs Gregg), at Westmead, on Wednesday last, at the age of 90 years. Deceased was the daughter of Andrew Johnston, one of the original settlers on the Hawkesbury, who came to the country in the year 1802, and settled down near Cattai about the year 1806, where he resided for a great number of years. Her husband, James Hall, died some years ago at the ripe old age of 92 years. Mrs Hall was the mother of the late Mrs Thomas Arndell, of Cattai, and was sister to the late J. B. Johnston, senr, of McGrath's Hill; also aunt to Mrs G. S. Greenwell and Mrs W. Beard, besides having scores of other relatives throughout the district.
