Dalton, Michael Joseph (1856–1911)

The death occurred on Saturday, suddenly, of Mr. Michael Joseph Dalton, a member of the firm of Dalton Bros., Ltd., Orange. When returning from a funeral he drove into the Wolaroi grounds to watch a football match, and while there fell back in the vehicle in an apoplectic fit. He was driven home, where he died two hours later. Mr. Dalton was a native of the town of Orange, and a half brother of Mr. James Dalton, head of the firm.
