MRS. ELIZABETH STANTON.
We have this week to record the death of one of our oldest district residents, as well as being a native of the district, in the person of Mrs Elizabeth Stanton, which sad event took place at the residence of her daughter, Mrs W. Lennox, on Monday evening last. The late Mrs Stanton was born at Castlereagh, near Penrith, on 17th April, 1818. She was married to the late Mr Joseph Stanton (who died on November 17th, 1884) by the Rev Henry Fulton, in the old Castlereagh Church, long since demolished, on August 25th, 1834. Mrs Stanton's father was also a native of the colony. Mrs Stanton's family consisted of four sons and two daughters, all of whom were living at the time of her death. After the death of her husband in 1884 deceased resided continuously with her daughter, Mrs Lennox. Deceased, as will be seen, was 82 years of age at the time of her death, and her late husband was also 82 years of age when he died. Deceased's remains were interred in the Emu Wesleyan Cemetery on Tuesday last, alongside those of her late husband. Mrs John Price and Son had charge of the funeral arrangements, as well as the one below.11
