Seymour, Sarah (1821–1862)

On Thursday morning last died Mrs. Seymour, wife of Mr. James Seymour, of Terragong Swamp, after a very brief illness, the nature of which seems not to be exactly known; supposed, however, to be intestinal inflammation. This distressing event was quite unexpected, Mrs. Seymour previous to her fatal illness, having enjoyed robust health. A husband and ten children have this to deplore the loss of a mother of most affectionate and exemplary character.
