Note:

I can't locate evidence of Elizabeth's death. A few researchers on Ancestry have recorded her death as being in 1865. The only death listed for an Elizabeth Low/e in the New South Wales BDM is a different Elizabeth. This Elizabeth was 21 at the time of death when cross referenced with Trove records.

The majority of researchers have listed her death as being 1863 in Victoria. There is only one Eliza Lowe listed for that year, but she was a 1 year old.

There is an Elizabeth Low death record for 1853 at Camperdown, Newtown, New South Wales. The age of her death matches Elizabeth's year of birth. This could possibly be the right match

"AN OLD COLONIST GONE.-The late Mr. Henry Angel who died at Lake Albert, near Wagga, at his residence on the 7th instant, at the age of 91 year, was a colonist for over 60 years, having arrived in the colony in 1819. He first settled in Kiama as a farmer. In 1824 he went with Humo and Hovell's party on the expedition overland to Hobson's Bay. He was one of the first men who crossed the River Murray and was always foremost in any difficult situations or hardships on the journey. Mr. Hume, in his reports of the expedition, frequently mentions the name ot Henry Angel, and speaks highly of his courage and determination. He appears always to have been a man on whom great reliance was placed by the explorers iu any difficulty or hardships.

Mr. Angel afterwards followed the occupation of a farmer and became a squatter on the Murrumbidgee. He eventually settled near Wagga, and became possessed of a considerable landed estate. He was noted in the district for his strict integrity. ln 1832 he married Mary Brooker. There were l6 children of the marriage, eight of whom and the widow and 70 grandchildren survive their father.
