INQUESTS.—An inquest was held at her Majesty's gaol, Parramatta, on 27th August, ... Another inquest was held the same day, at the resi- dence of Mr. Simon Moulds, Dural, before Walter Brown, Esq., cornoer, upon view of the body of Ann Purnell, aged four and a half years, a daughter of Stephen Purnell. From the evidence it appeared that the deceased came by her death through her clothes catching fire whilst playing round a burning stump at North Colo. The mother of the deceased drove her in a cart to Mr. Mould's resi- dence, where she died from the injuries received. Verdict—Accidental burning.

Buried St Thomas cemetery, West Street, North Sydney. An Act of Parliament in 1967 designated the area as 'community land' and the Cemetery was handed over to North Sydney Council. The conversion of the Cemetery to Rest Park in the early 1970s was the Council's first heritage project and the Rest Park was reopened in 1974. William's gravestone was not found on personal inspection of the cemetery in 2005. The park is mostly grassed over and very few headstone remain.

Death. - On Sunday news spread through the district that Mr. Stephen Purnell had passed away at the advanced age of 88 years. The burial took place on Tuesday, and was very largely attended, and as the cortege wended its way to St Jude's Church the bell tolled out the number of years the deceased has attained. The Rev. J. Roberts held a very impressive service at the church, after which the mortal remains were followed to the C.E. cemetery where a great many had assembled to pay respect to the oldest pioneer of the district. Mr. Purnell was married to Miss Rosetta Moulds, daughter of the late Simon Moulds, sen., of Dural, at All Saints Church, Parramatta in the year 1853. The deceased leaves a widow and seven children of five daughters and two sons, 44 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren. Many beautiful wreaths were placed on the grave. The funeral arrangements were ably carried out by Mr. Metcalfe, Parramatta.
