Age fits for Harriet

Goulburn Evening Penny Post
Thu 18 Dec 1919

(From Local Papers.)
There died at Crookwell on Thursday last one of our oldest pioneers. in the
person of Mrs. Harriet Lucy Howard at the age of 83 years. "Granny" Howard was noted for her unfailing energy and chelerfulness. Never a soul went by hilbut she had a word of greeting for them. Tile fact that she became known .?s "Granny" to all and sundry emphasiscs the regard of the people for her. Her daughters surviving are Mlras I. B. Bensliy, Mlrs. E. C. Bray, MIrs. Fred Morris (Lismore), and her sons John (Gilgandra), Charles (Crookwell), and James (Taralga). Itr descendants total 81, comprising-7 children, 51 grandchildren, and 13 great grandchildren.

Thanks gibbo.
