Robert Nash (1771–1819)

Died yesterday evening, after a very short illness, at his farm at Pitt Water, Mr. Robert Nash, aged 48 years. A numerous family and a large circle of friends and acquaintances will lament his loss. During his residence in these colonies, which has been many years, Mr. Nash built several flour-mills; and on his own farm at Pitt Water, he lately erected a windmill which was much wanted there by the settlers. - The friends and acquaintances of Mr. Nash and family are requested to attend the funeral on Tuesday next, at 2 o'clock, from the Veranda House, without further notice.
