Meglin, Charles (1839–1874)

Charles Meglin, one of the original prospectors of the Walhalla Company, died at his residence near Melbourne a few days since. The Walhalla Chronicle states that the deceased, who had been ailing for some time, was not only the owner of valuable property in the metropolis, but one of the largest shareholders in the Walhalla mine. He was about 40 years of age, and it is currently reported that his property and shares are worth £80,000.
