One of the oldest residents of the
district in the person of Mrs. Margaret
Liersch, passed away on Wednesday,
August 11th. She was well known and
highly respected, and her death oc-
casioned extreme regret throughout
Werribee and district. The late Mrs.
Liersch had been declining ill health
for the past six years. Last Febru-
ary she took to her bed. The years
had left their mark-she was 87-and
she weakened by degrees, and fully
conscious up till her last moments,
she passed away. The cause of death
was senile decay. The late Mrs. Liersch
was born in County Clare, Ireland.
With her parents she came to Victoria
when about 11 years of age, and took
up her residence at Collingwood. She
afterwards came to reside in Werri-
bee. In 1865, at St. Francis' Church,
Melbourne, she married her late. hus-
band, Mr. Edward Liersch. Mr. and
Mrs. Liersch lived at Carlton, and for
a short time at Essendon, before com
ing to Werribee. At Carlton Mr.
Liersch followed the occupation of
horse trainer, with a fair amount of
success. He prepared the winners of
several country events. A horse from
his stable won the Castlemaine Cup
when that stake was bigger than the
Melbourne Cup of that day. At Wer-
ribee Mr. and Mrs. Liersch took up
residence at the Black Forest, their
home being one of the district land
marks. Mr. Liersch died about seven
years ago. Since then the widow has
lived with her son James, at Greaves
street. Mrs. Liersch was the mother
of James (Werribee), Anna Rosina
(Mrs. M. Claney, West Australia),
Margaret (Mrs. H. Bren, Werribee),
Bridget (Mrs. A. Franklin, Ballarat),
and Hannah (deceased). Her sisters
were the late Mrs Thomas Carroll
(Little River), Mrs. McNamara (Chil-
tern), and Miss Bridget Liersch (Wer-
ribee). Her only brother was the late
Mr. Michael Wall (Werribee).

bee cemetery on Thursday last, and
was largely attended. The coffin bear-
ers were Messrs. P. and A. McDermott,
