On 20 July 1929 the West Australian, a Perth newspaper, published an article about Susan Augusta Chauncy née Mitchell (1828-1867), based on a memoir written in 1873 by her husband, Philip Chauncy.
I have a copy of the memoir, which was republished in 1976.
Philip and Susan Chauncy were my 3rd great grandparents.
I have visited their grave in St Kilda cemetery. The inscription is now very faint but I transcribed it as follows:
Sacred to the memory of
The beloved wife of
Philip Chauncy J.P.
District surveyor Castlemaine
Who died 30 Sep 1867
Aged 39 years
Philip Lamothe Chauncy JP
Born 2 June 1816
Died 9 April 1880
“Be thou faithful unto death
And I will give thee a crown of life”
The epitaph is from Revelation 2:10.
