Mary Ann Eaton
The news of the death of such an old and respected identity as the late Mrs. Isaac Cornwell, caused much sorrow in town on Friday last. Mrs. Cornwell was perhaps one of the oldest Hawkesbury natives, having been born in the vicinity of Grose Vale 90 years ago on May 5th last. She therefore could give much valuable information respecting the early settlement in this district and could speak from personal knowledge in regard to the progress made in all directions. Mrs. Cornwell had been twice married, first to Mr. Richards, and her first family were :-Messrs. B. Richards, J.P., who is well-known throughout the length and breadth of the colony ; the late Thomas Richards, who died some little time ago ; William Richards of Forbes: and Mrs. Sarah Buckland (deceased). Her second husband, Mr. Isaac Cornwell, died some time since, the children by this marriage being the late John Cornwell, Mrs. Richard Allen, Mrs. R. Turner, Mrs. Shields, and Mr. Albert Cornwell. The number of grand and great-grandchildren left by the deceased lady cannot be ascertained. The funeral on Sunday afternoon was very largely attended. The remains were interred in the Church of England Cemetery, the Rev. Mr. Hargraves officiating.
