Croaker, Philip Henry (1823–1860)

We understand, that about a fortnight ago, Mr. Philip Croaker, a brother of the Messrs. Croaker of this town, died suddenly, the particular circumstances of his death we have not been able fully to ascertain, but as far as we can learn they are as follows: — Mr. Croaker left his residence at Burrowa to proceed towards Yass, and some time afterwards being seized with an attack of epilepsy to which he was subject, he fell from his horse, but fortunately was not much hurt, however not feeling very well, he returned to Burrowa and lay down on the bed where he was shortly afterwards found quite dead.
