THE COUNTRY.

DEATH OF AN OLD COLONIST.

BURRA. June 17.
An old and respected resident of Burra
and district, Mrs. Mary Kroncke, died yes-
terday at the residence of her son-in-law,
Mr. W. H. Hardy, Kooringa. The deceas-
ed lady was nearly 85 years of age, and
she arrived in South Australia, with her
late husband, Mr. Carl Kroncke, in one of
the first ships from Hamburg, nearly 60
years ago. Mr. and Mrs. Kroncke soon
went north as far as the Gawler Plains,
then removed to the locality of Mount Re-
markable. They were engaged in shep-
herding before any fences were erected, at
a time when much trouble was caused by
the blacks, who on one or two occasions
nearly killed Mrs. Kroncke, with one of her
children. The old lady was ill for only
a few days prior to her death. Her
husband died about 14 years since. There
are two daughters and one son living— Mrs.
W. H. Hardy, of Burra; Mrs. T. Mount-
ford, of Adelaide; and Mr. W. Kroncke,
who is believed to be at present in West-
ern Australia.
