Keating, William Dalrymple (1804–1884)

Last week was gathered to his fathers, Mr. William Dalrymple Keating, of Keating's Swamp, Rockbank, in the Shire of Bravbrook. The old man had just attained his 80th year, and had until of late enjoyed good health. He leaves a widow and family–the latter all well settled in life. Mr. Keating possessed a historic interest as being the first white man born in Tasmania, and his middle name is that of the then Governor of V.D.L. In recognition of his advent as the advance pioneer of the pale faces he received a grant of land from the Tasmanian Government. His life otherwise was uneventful. [line missing] neigbor.
