They were members of the Baptist Angas/Angus family (see HER 13223 and 13224) who worshipped at Tuthill Stairs chapel and were represented on the cemetery committee. Her funeral was conducted by Baptist minister R. Pengilly on 18 October 1829. The grave was dug ten feet deep to deter grave robbers.
