.......

MRS. J. CLAFFEY. Mrs. J. Claffey, an esteemed pioneer of Adelong district, passed peacefully away at her residence, West View, Gilmore, on Wednesday week, at the ripe old age of 80 years, her late husband having predeceased her six years ago.

Deceased was born in Ireland, and her parents died when she was very young, leaving her with two sisters (Mrs. Keihone and late Mrs. Engelin, of Gundagai) to face the battle of life.

They came to Australia, and in 1869 the subject of our obituary was married to the late Mr. James Claffey at Adelong, by the late Rev. Father Twomey.

They first settled down at Blowering, and after wards selected land at Gilmore, where they established one of the best homesteads to be found in the district,

and resided there until their demise. Members of the family, mentioned hereunder were at the bedside when the fond and devoted mother passed peacefully awayŚ

Mrs. J. C. Malier (Brisbane), Mrs. M. J. M'Inerney, Mra. S. F. Arnetz, Messrs. James, son and daughter predeceased parents.

There were also 13 grandchildren.

The fine old lady will be sadly missed by a host of neighbours. The funeral, which took place on Thursday last, was one of the largest that has left the locality,

the remains being laid to rest next to those of her late husband and daughter in the Catholic portion of the old cemetery.

Rev. Father Sharkey officiated at the grave. - (Ref- Freeman's Journal (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1932)(about) Previous issue Thursday 14 August 1919 Page 35).
