THE OLDEST DISTRICT RESIDENT FIVE GENERATIONS.

Our illustration is a photograph of Mrs. M. A. McPherson, of Carrathool, the oldest inhabitant of the district, and members' of four succeeding generations — five in all.

Mrs. McPherson has resided in the Carrathool and Hay districts (with a break of four years spent with a daughter at Port Albert, Victoria) for seventy-three years.

She is a native of Campbelltown, where she was born on 9th June, 1834, and is thus in her ninety-third year. She married Mr. Christopher Ledwidge on 1st April, 1853, and went to live at Uardry upon her marriage.

After living on that station for some years, the Ledwidges came into Hay, and for some time kept the Caledonian Hotel. They then went to Carrathool, and opened the Carrathool Hotel, on the main road from Hay to Wagga, and almost due south from where the town of Carrathool now stands.

Mr. Ledwidge died in the Carrathool-Hotel on 8th August, 1869. Mrs. Ledwidge continued the hotel business, and in 1874 married Mr. Ewan Cluny McPherson. She had ten children to Mr. Ledwidge and one, to Mr. McPherson — eleven in all.

After the railway opened, it created the present town of Carrathool, and coach traffic ceased. Mrs. McPherson kept the Railway Hotel at the new township for some time, and afterwards spent some years in Hay. After four years absence in Port Albert, she returned to Carrathool, where she has resided ever since.

All her family were born in the Carrathool district, where some of them reside at present. Her descendants are: eleven children, G2 grand-children, 141 great grand-children and eight great great grand-children. (Fifteen of her grandsons went to the war, and four of them were killed in action.

Three of her sons, fourteen grand-children, and eleven great-grand-children have died. The old lady's hearing is still good, and she can read with the aid of glasses but owing to an accident, about four years' ago, when she broke her leg, she has to use sticks to walk about.

In the photograph, the old lady is sitting on the left of the picture. The other lady sitting is Mrs. M. J. Dodd (daughter). The three standing are (from left to right) . Mrs. Cecil Howard, of Hay (great-grand-daughter), Miss Kathleen Howard (great great grand-daughter) and Mrs. Richard Moore, of Hay (grand-daughter).
