Edward Ewer (1796-1859) death notice

As the Bathurst newspapers are being digitized now by the National Library of Australia ( I'm expecting a few items of my EWER family to crop up (and a few other families including AHEARN). Here is the death notice for my convict ancestor Edward Ewer, the day after he passed away.

Bathurst Free Press and Mining Journal
21 Sep 1859, p2
On Tuesday, the 20th September, at his residence, Howick-street, Mr. Edward Ewer, aged 78 years.

Edwards death certificate stated he was 68, which is much more accurate.
