Joseph Ward Lowe (1824–1892)

The death of Mr. Joseph Lowe took place at his residence, Newstead, Bringelly, on Saturday week last. Mr. Lowe was 67 years of age, and the last survivor of the seven sons of the late Robert Lowe, one of the early residents of the district. It is of melancholy interest to observe that, of a whole family of seven sons born in the district, not one survives. His remains were buried in the Cabramatta cemetery on the following Tuesday, the Rev. G. H. Allnutt officiating at the grave.
