McNeilly, Charlotte Elizabeth (1828–1911)

Mrs. C. E. [Charlotte Elizabeth] McNeilly, a very old and much respected resident of Orange died on Friday last from senile decay, hastened by an injury she received to her back some time ago, as the result of a fall. She leaves one son, Ald E. T. McNeilly, ex Mayor of Orange, two daughters, Mrs Garlick of Molong, and Mrs Duke of Sydney, nineteen grandchildren, four great grandchildren. The late Mrs McNeilly had resided in Orange for about 45 years, and during the early part of her residence taught a private school. She was an artist of no mean merit, and in her day wielded a facile, fluent, and graceful pen. She was also a great advocate of temperance, and was instrumental in forming the first temperance lodge in Orange. Her age was 83.
