"There passed away at Eltham recently Mrs. Samuel Death at the age o£ 78 years. Born in 1841 on the ship Thomas Sparks, just before reaching Wellington Heads, Mrs. Death settled at Petone with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Riddler. Mrs. Death was married in 1863, and was therefore within four years of her diamond wedding. After living forty years in the Hutt Valley, where their family were all born and brought up, Mr. and Mrs. Death went to Taranaki. Mr. and Mrs. Death both passed through the vicissitudes of the early settlers’ life, Mr. Death having served in the Militia in the troubles with the Maoris. She leaves a husband and family of nine, eight sons — Messrs. Arthur (Levin), George (Thames Valley), Henry Frank, William, Thomas, Norman, and Sidney (all of Fraser-road, Eltham), and one daughter, Mrs. T. Hudson (Palmerston North)."
