Martha Wright nee Pringle
Gone Home
On Sunday last Mrs. Wright, well and favorably known by old residents of this district, passed peacefully to her reward after a few days illness at the age of 76 years. The old lady had been making her home with her youngest daughter, Mrs. E. Blackstock, of Singhampton, and came to visit her eldest daughter, Mrs. Hollingshead of this village, a few weeks ago. She had been quite feeble for some years but always retained that cheerful, kind and estimable disposition which endeared her to all who knew her. Her last words were full of encouragement to the christian and of comfort to bereaved ones left behind.
