OBITUARY MRS NINA DAVIS Death on Monday removed a very old resident of the district with the person of Mrs. Nina Davis who lived at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. P. W. Tindale, at West Mudgee. The deceased was 86 years of age at the time of her passing and came of the oldest pioneering family in the Rylstone district, her maiden name being Harris. She was born at Calcoola, Rylstone, and was the relict of the late Charles Davis, of Rylstone. For many years Mrs. Davis had been well and favorably known by a large circle of friends, and was a great worker for her church, the Church of England. She leaves two sons and five daughters to mourn her loss. These are: Mr. W. Davis, of Bylong; Mr. Herb. Davis, Bylong, Mrs. Gettens, of Bylong; Miss Evelyn Davis, Mudgee; Mrs. P. W. Tindale, Mrs. E. S. Nock, of Bogie, Rylstone; and Mrs. W. E. Tweedie, of Portland, the latter being very well known in Mudgee at one time. The deceased lady was buried at Bylong cemetery. Prior to the departure for the graveside, a service was held in the Bylong Church, when the Rev. Richard Mathers officiated. The service was very largely attended, bearing witness to the esteem in which the old lady was held by all, and the cortege when left the church was one of the largest that has been seen in Bylong. At the graveside the Rev. Mathers completed the burial service. Many beautiful wreaths were sent by sympathetic friends. The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Mr. H. Barton, of Mudgee.
