'The Bulletin' 23 May 1885: 'The oldest colonial born woman, the late Mrs. Morgan of Bathurst, N.S.W. On page 7 of this issue we give a portrait of the lately deceased Mrs. Ann Morgan, who was the oldest Australian, who, had she lived to October 3rd next would have been 94 years of age. The Venerable lady was born at sea within a short distance of the coast in the nineties of last century and was the daughter of free parents, servants of a former governor of N.S.W. She was married at sixteen and leaves behind sons and grandson to the number in all of 60. Until within a few weeks of her decease (which took place at the residence of her grandsons Messrs. William and George Morgan of Pitt Street Redfern) Mrs. Morgan retained perfect possession of all her faculties, could without the aid of glasses, thread the needle which she had plied so deftly throughout her long life. She was of a most kindly disposition and numbers of people who desired information concerning the early days of the colony, went to her and she had many strange stories to tell them.

Mrs. Ann Morgan was buried at Rookwood Cemetery on 6th May 1885 in the same plot as that of her eldest son William (Graces 211-212 B-B Section.)

William's son, George, and widow Janet were lately buried in the plots (1896 and 1907 respectively.)
