THE LATE MRS. CHARLES THORNE.

Illawarra Mercury (Wollongong, NSW : 1856 - 1950) Tuesday 7 November 1893 p 2 Article

On Saturday, the 28th ultimo, Mrs. Charles Thorne died at her residence, Tarrawanna. She had given birth to a child a few days previously, and unfortunately, instead of recovering, she became prostrated and passed away, despite the efforts of her friends and relatives to save her life.

Neither did the medical skill of Dr. Lee avail, although called to her aid. The infant, however still survives and in addition there are three or four other young children. The deceased, who was much respected by all who knew her was a native of Fairy Meadow, and was in her thirty-third year.

She was a daughter of Mr Edward Harrigan of the same place, and who a few years ago was the oldest Australian native, as then stated in this journal.

The funeral took place on the Monday following, the remains being laid in the Wollongong Church of England cemetery beside those of the deceased father.
