Eliza Robinson (1812–1894)

We have to chronicle yet another death from influenza. Mrs Eliza Robinson, an old and respected resident of Wilberforce, passed over to the great majority on Tuesday morning, at the advanced age of 81 years. Deceased was the wife of Mr John Robinson, and leaves a large family of sons and daughters, all of whom occupy respectable positions in life. She lived nearly the whole of her life-time in Wilberforce, and was related to several families around the district. The interment took place on Wednesday afternoon in the Church of England Cemetery. The service for the dead was conducted at deceased's late residence, prior to the cortege leaving, by the Rev B. Dinning, among the mourners from Sydney was Mr. Corner, a son-in-law of deceased's. The duties of undertaker were carried out by Mr R. W. Dunstan, of Windsor.
