      Nyngan Observer Saturday 30th march, 1907

      Obituary We indeed regret to record the death of Mrs Thomas Field, mother of Messrs. J. C. Field (ex mayor of Nyngan) , Edward H., Ernest, and Thomas Field, which sad event took place on Sunday night last. The deceased lady had been ailing for a long time., but very few thought that the end would come so suddenly as it did, even though she had reached the age of 69 years, almost the Psalmist's allotted span of life. The old lady, who came from Hartley way, was with her husband, one of the pioneers who went to Forbes and lived on the Lachlan for many years, rearing a large family of sons and daughters. Of a sympathetic and helpful disposition, many kind actions of hers will be remembered by those in different parts of the State who have benefited by her kindly actions in times of sickness and trouble. We, in common with many other friends, offer our sympathy to the bereaved husband and family in their time of sorrow.

      The funeral took place on Tuesday and was largely attended, the inspiring and comforting burial service of the Church of England was read by Rev. A. G. Cresswell, who also gave an appropriate address afterwards.

      The funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. John Kennedy.

      Edward and Esther Field had a son Josiah who married Sarah Morris and this is about their son.
