Harrigan, Joseph (1819–1859)

About a fortnight since Joseph Arrigan [Harrigan], more generally called Haddigaddy, residing near Yass was thrown from his horse, and his spine was severely injured. After lingering for about ten days, we regret to hear he expired on Saturday last. Our informant adds that he was buried on Sunday, and the funeral was exceedingly well attended, the deceased having been much respected.
