Mary Snodgrass (1829–1900)

Another old and highly respected district resident — Mrs. James [Mary] Snodgrass, of Uranquinty — died on Friday last at her residence, Summerlea, at the age of 70. The following particulars are given by a Wagga journal: — "Up till three months ago the deceased lady had enjoyed comparatively robust health, but latterly she had been laid up with a rather severe attack of asthma, which, together with a general break-up of the constitution, was the cause of death. Mrs. Snodgrass was a native of Paisley, Scotland. She emigrated to South Australia in 1860, but 13 years ago removed to Uranquinty, where she continued to live until her death. Deceased leaves a husband (who is 88 years of age) and six children, whose names are — Mrs. R. Bourne (The Rock), Mrs. J. H. Kendall (The Rock), Mrs. J. Brown (Condobolin), Mr. Geo. Snodgrass (The Rock), Mr. Allan Snodgrass (Uranquinty), Mr. William Snodgrass (Uranquinty). The funeral took place at Wagga Wagga on Saturday."
