The death has occurred of Mrs. Mary Chamberlin, one of the oldest residents of Ballarat. Deceased, who was 86 years of age, was one of the few women who witnessed the encounter at the Eureka Stockade in 1851, and by all her acquaintances she was regarded as an authority on matters appertaining to those stirring times. Mrs. Chamberlin was mother of Mrs. J. Thomas, of Moonee Ponds; Rev. W. Chamberlin, of Dookie; and Mrs. Thos. Chamberlin, an official at the Western railway station, Ballarat. She was highly esteemed in a wide circle.[1]
