DEATH NOTICE

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.

MRS. JANE HARRIGAN.

On Monday evening a very old resident of this district passed away at the residence of her son. Mr. W. Harrigan, Tarrawanna, in the person of Mrs. Jane Harrigan, relict of the late Edward Harrigan, of Tarrawanna, aged 96 years.

The deceased lady, who was a direct descendent of one of the old Irish families, was born in St Patrick street, Cork, in 1820, and came to this country in 1849 in the ship Duke of Bronte with her mother and sister, Captain Bartlett being in command.

Shortly after their arrival they opened a school at Market Square, Wollongong, and there are still a number of residents on the South Coast who received their early tuition there.

On August 17, 1854, she married Edward Harrigan, of Fairy Meadow, in the old Church of England opposite the Wollongong Bowling Green, Rev. Mr. Mears officiating.

Four children were born to them, and a son and daughter still survive. The deceased lady was highly educated, and was noted for her gentle disposition and wonderful memory.

During late years she was more or less an invalid, but retained her faculties to the last and never had to use spectacles. She was a sister of Mrs. Elizabeth Brooker whose death at Gosford was reported in our issue last week.
