John Alexander Walker (1837–1875)

Mr John Walker, brother of Mr. M. Walker, of Mudgee, and Mr. William Walker, formerly member of the Assembly for the electorate of Windsor, was driving in a buggy near the Talbragar, where he was by some means pitched out, the wheels passing over his body, causing serious injuries. Dr. Ramsay, of Gulgong, was driven out by Mr. M. Walker to the scene of the accident, but the unfortunate gentleman never rallied, and died shortly afterwards.
