JOHN WICKENS

HARRIETT WICKENS

HUSBAND AND WIFE

It occasionally happens though somewhat rarely, that husband and wife lie dead at the same time.

Our obituary records this circumstance today, of John Wickens, who died on the 1st, known to many as an ostler, his wife dying five days afterwards.

Both were buried in the same grave at the cemetery.
