More detail:

Death of Mrs. John Lye. — One by one the pioneer settlers of this Province are passing away. Of late we regret to say that we have had to notice many of their deaths, and now our obituary contains another. Mrs. Lye, with her husband and family, were passengers by the first ship that came to this settlement, the ' William Bryant,' which arrived here in 1841. This venerable lady has raised a large family, and has lived to see her grandchildren's children. She was known to all our old settlers by whom she was much regarded. She died on Saturday evening and yesterday a large number of persons followed her remains to the grave.
