      Forbes Times - Friday 15th August, 1919 (Eugowra News).
      Death of Mrs. M. Weekes.

      Very sad news came through to Eugowra of the death of Mrs. M. Weekes of Bellmore, Canowindra. The deceased being of 80 years of age, was for many years a resident of Eugowra. The late Mrs. Weekes leaves a sorrowing family of three sons and one daughter - the sons being Messrs. Charles, Phillip and Bert, all of Eugowra, and the daughter being Mrs. Dawes of Queensland.
      Very deep sympathy is extended to the bereaved family in the sad loss they have sustained, including many grandchildren.
