Ann (Annie) Traise (1851–1888)

Ann Traise, n.d.

Ann Traise, n.d.

We (Broughton Creek Register) have to record the death of Mrs. [Annie] Traise, who was left with the charge of 10 children — one an infant a few weeks old — by the terrible colliery disaster at Bulli a few months since. The shock of the occurrence, combined with the terrible anxiety and exposure while waiting for the remains of the unfortunate sufferers to be brought out of the pit, caused an injury to the system from which Mrs Traise never recovered. From that time her health continuously failed, until death came on the 5th instant. Her age was 37, she being the second oldest daughter of Mr. John Sproule, of Kiama.
