Lipscomb, Caroline (1821–1891)

Mrs. Lipsoomb, a very old and respected resident of West Maitland, passed over to the great majority on Wednesday, at the ripe age of some 70 yrear. The deceased lady, who has been a sufferer for a long time from that much-dreaded complaint cancer, had been a resident of Maitland for over 50 years, and much sympathy is expressed for a large circle of friends in their sad bercavement.
