OBITUARY. Many of our readers will learn with regret of the death of Mrs. T. J. Rossiter a very old resident of the County of Mornington, having arrived there in 1847. She then resided with her father at Gladys Park Station, [1] near Berwick. She was-married on the lst of September 1854, and still remained in that district until 1881, when she left with her family for Spring Grove, near Cunnamulla, Queensland, where she died. We clip the following from the Cunnamulla Argus, of Tuesday, 1st September, 1891:-

We deeply regret having to record the death of Mrs. Rossiter, wife of Mr. T. J. Rossiter, of Spring Grove. The deceased lady had been ill scarcely a fortnight, and up to the night of her death no one, not even Dr. Murray, who had visited her the day-previous had not anticipated the fatal result. The cause of death was congestion of the liver, probably accelerated, by an attack of syncope.

Mrs Rossiter was very highly esteemed by all who knew her, and in the home circle her loss must be keenly felt. The funeral took place on Saturday when nearly all the residents of the town attended, the business places closing as the procession moved through the streets.

In the absence of a clergyman, the police magistrate conducted the burial servce. A rather sad circumstance attending this visitation was the fact that Mr. Rossiter was absent from home on a visit to Melbourne. We are sure Mr. Rossiter's many friends in this district will join with us in an expression of sympathy for his bereavement.
