Whalan, Horatio (1849–1876)

The P. D. Telegram reports that a magisterial inquiry was held at St. Helen's Station on the 3rd ultimo, before W. S. Paul, Esq., Glendarriwill, relative to the death by drowning of a man named Horatio Whelan [Whalan], a native of New South Wales, aged about 23 years. It seems deceased was travelling with a mob of horses belonging to Mr. Samuel Barrett, and, on arrival at the Nogoa, the horses were crossed at the telegraph line, and in swimming across the river on horseback deceased came to his untimely end.
