Whalan, Charles (1811–1885)

One of the foremost pioneers of Oberon, Charles Whalan, J.P., died a few weeks ago, at the advanced age of 75. The deceased gentleman was intimately associated with the district for upwards of 50 years, and was a most exemplary and worthy member of society. In the old penal days, when tyranny, arbitrary power, and unbridled autocracy ruled supreme, the name of Charles Whalan stands prominently as a kind and humane master, and one whose untiring efforts were being constantly directed towards the improvement of that unhappy class over whom he had had control.
