Charles Pitt (1838–1913)

The death of Charles Pitt which took place on Thursday morning last, removes an old and highly esteemed resident from the district. The late Charles Pitt had been in business in Windsor for many years as a blacksmith, but retired about twelve years ago on account of illness, and lived privately at Newtown. He suffered a great deal from rheumatism which was the cause of his death. He was 82 years of age and leaves a widow and grown-up family, viz., Emily, Mrs. T. Maguire, junr., Henry, Ethel, Sydney, Mrs. W. McMahon, Gertrude (also married), and Mrs. H. Clifford. The funeral took place on Friday, when the remains were buried in the R.C. cemetery, Windsor. Rev. Father McDonnell was the officiating clergyman, and Mr. Chandler the undertaker.
