Elizabeth Hannam (1830–1905)

There died at her residence, Gregadoo road, at an early hour last evening, Mrs. Elizabeth Hannam, who had reached the ripe age of 77 years, no less than 50 of which had been spent in the district. During that time Mrs. Hannam, needless to say, became widely known, and gained a large circle of friends. The deceased leaves a grown-up family of seven. The funeral is announced to leave her late residence at 1.30 tomorrow afternoon for the Wagga Cemetery.
