Trickey, Robert (1820–1870)

from Mercury (Hobart)

The body of a miner named Robert Trickey, was found in a waterhole near the town yesterday. An inquest was held this afternoon, showing that he was at a land board last Friday, and that afterwards he got drunk. He was riding home on horseback, and tumbled into the creek when crossing it. His age was fifty, and he has left a grown-up family. He was long resident in Opossum Gully.
