Caroline Agnes O'Conor (?–1927)

Letters received by a recent European mail bring news of the death in lreland of Mrs. Caroline Agnes O'Conor, a daughter of Caroline Chisholm. The late Mrs. O'Conor was twice married, her first husband being Edmund Dwyer Gray, proprietor and editor of the recently defunct Dublin Freeman's Journal. He was also a member of the House of Commons, having followed in the footsteps of his father, Sir John Gray, and, like his father also, was several times Lord Mayor of Dublin. Though Mrs. O'Conor was twice married, she had only one child, Mr. Edward Dwyer Gray, a well-known journalist, who is now managing editor of the Tasmanian Labour paper, The Voice of Labor.
