Walker, Abraham (1797–1883)

Our obituary to-day contains the name of another old colonist, whose pilgrimage has just closed at the advanced age of 85 years, Mr. Abraham Walker having died at Longford yesterday evening. He was a colonist of sixty years' standing, and at one time occupied a prominent position in his district, and he was a magistrate for many years, though his name is not now on the list. Mr. Walker's health had been failing for a considerable time, and the last four or five months he had been bed ridden. He leaves an aged widow, two sons, and two daughters, one of whom is settled in Queensland.
