      Obituary
      The Late Mrs William Collins
      The mournful tolls of the Christ Church bell early yesterday morning announced the death of one of the oldest inhabitants of the district in the person of Mrs William Collins, of Vine Cottage, Vineland. The sad event took place on Wednesday night, the primary cause of death being senile decay, with failure of the heart's action.
      Deceased was the daughter of the late Mr and Mrs William Neild, and she was born at London, England, on 11th June, 1924, and was therefore 78 years and 5 months of age at the time of her death. She was married in England, in 1839, to the late Mr James Merchant, with whom she left Gravesend (England) for Sydney (NSW) by the ship FLEETWOOD and FRANCES (Capt. Dove) landing at the latter place on 11th March, 1852. From Sydney the late couple visited Braidwood, Tuena, near Goulbourn, and Rocky River near Uralla. In 1858 the late Mr and Mrs Merchant arrived in Tenterfield, and proceeded to the Timbarra goldfields, where they settled and where Mr Merchant died on 21st May 1865. The issue of this marriage was 5 sons and 4 daughters namely Mr Thomas Hugh Merchant of Drake, Messrs James Henry, Joseph and George Merchant of Tenterfield, and Mr William Merchant of Stanthorpe, Mrs W Ford of Hillgrove, Mrs George Smith of Pretty Gully, Mrs F Brauer and Mrs John Melling of Tenterfield. There were also 4 other children, since deceased. Mrs Merchant came to Tenterfield in 1868, and on the 27th July the following year she was married in the local Wesleyan Church, by the Rev Corner, to Mr William Collins, who died at Tenterfield on the 9th September 1885. There was no issue from the marriage. The deceased lady leaves a number of relatives including 9 children, 53 grand children and 42 great grandchildren. The funeral takes place today being timed to leave the late residence of the deceased at 12 o'clock noon. Mr J R Day has charge of the mortuary arrangements and the Rev H G Smith will officiate at the graveside.
      To the bereaved ones, our deepest sympathy us extended.
