DEATH OF AN OLD COLONIST. —Our obituary column to-day contains the announcement of the death of Mrs. Margaret Williams, which occurred on Sunday, 24th inst., a little more than five months after the decease of her husband, the late Mr. Llewellyn Williams, of Yahl. The deceased lady, who was the mother of Mr. T. Williams, J.P., of Moorak, and Mr. W. Williams, of Mount Gambler, came to the colony in 1852, three years after Mr. Williams, and was thus a colonist of 41 years. For eleven years she lived with her husband and family at Mount Barker, where Mr. Williams was engaged in farming. In 1863 they removed to Mount Gambier, and lived on a farm at Yahl till April last, when Mr. Williams died, at the age of 86 years. After her husband's death Mrs. Williams came to town, and lived with her grand-daughter, Mrs. Thos. Hall, in Sturt street, quietly waiting her time. Her age at death was nearly 84 years. The deceased leaves six sons and three daughters, as well as 50 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren, who are scattered over Australia. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, the Rev. R. A. Caldwell conducting the last services. The deceased was much respected, and there was a large attendance at the funeral.12
