    • Lithgow Mercury-Friday 28th Sept., 1906

      On Tuesday night an old resident in the person of Edward Morris passed away peacefully at the residence of his son, Mr. John B. Morris of Hartley Vale. He had been suffering for some time past with slight attacks of sickness, but his end came rather unexpectedly after being only about a week confined to his bed. He was 73 years of age, and was all his life a familiar figure in the district.
      His wife predeceased him three years ago. He leaves a family of grown sons and one daughter, amongst whom he has spent the latter days of his life. His funeral took place today (Thursday) and was largely attended, everyone turned out to pay their last tribute of affection to an old respected friend. The obsequies at Mt. York were performed by the Rev. T. J. Heffernan, of Mt. Victoria, who as a mark of sympathy to the departed and his relatives, journeyed from Sydney (where he had been spending a short holiday) by passenger train today to officiate at the graveside.
