Eliza Flood (1838–1876)

I deeply regret to have to inform you of the rather sudden death of Mrs. Edward Flood, junr., of Quambone. Mrs. Flood had been but recently confined, when unfavourable symptoms set in, and a messenger was at once sent for Dr. Shaw, of Coonamble, but she continued to get worse, and a consultation was requested, and Dr. Weston sent for, but before he got out Mrs. Flood expired. She is most deeply regretted by everybody, beloved and admired by all who knew her, she will be missed by hundreds. She leaves nine children, and a disconsolate husband to mourn her loss.
