Ann Delaney

It is with regret we have to announce the death of an old Bathurst resident in the person of Mrs. Ann Whalan, which occurred rather suddenly on Sunday afternoon. The deceased lady had been suffering for about two weeks from pneumonia, but during the past few days had considerably improved and no fears as to her health were entertained. Yesterday, however, immediately after dinner, she suddenly expired, medical testimony affirming that the immediate cause of dealth was due to the failure of the heart's action. Mrs. Whalan, who was 65 years of age, was well-known and highly respected throughout the district, having been connected with the Commercial Hotel for about 20 years. She leaves a family of three daughters and four sons. General sympathy has been expressed with the family in their sad, bereavement. The funeral will take place to-morrow afternoon and the interment is to be made in the Church of England cemetery at Kelso.

17. John Morris Whalan

Sad Drowning Accident.
As we go to Press an inquiry is being held concerning the death of Mr. Whalan, senr., father of Mr. John Whalan, a popular local Railway official, who was found drowned at Moloney's Rocks yesterday. It appears that deceased was in the habit of going for a stroll to the river daily. Mr. Bradwell, also of the Railway Dept., was in swimming when he noticed an object floating in
the water. On closer examination he found it to be the body of deceaseed. On bringing it to the bank he found deceased's hat a short distance away, thus pointing to the fact that he had fallen asleep and then rolled into the water. Deceased was over 70 years of age. The funeral will take place at Wallerawang to day. The sorrowing family have the sympathy of our townspeople in their bereavement.
Following verdict was returned :—
" I find that the said John Whalan in the waters of the Lachlan river was found dead without any marks of violence appearing on his body. I further find that his death was caused by asphysia by drowning, but how or by what means he came to be drowned, there is not sufficient evidence to enable me to say."

Amelia May Wilson

In affectionate remembrance of Amelia Whalan-beloved wife of Edwin Whalan, Mountain View, near Merriwa who departed this life 23rd September, 1885, leaving a husband and four young children to mourn their loss. The deceased, who was only 30 years of age, was an affectionate wife and mother, of a very kind, genial, and social disposition, and was highly respected by all who knew her. It is sad to think that her last illness was hastened by the imprudence of professed friends; but it is a great consolation to the bereaved husband and friends to know with what resignation she bowed to the will of God, and the evidence she gave of her full trust in Him through Christ alone for salvation.
Alas! she's gone ; who could have thought That her last hour had been so nigh ?
A lew short weeks this change has wrought, We little knew that she should die.
Had you but seen her cheerful mien, The beauty of her light blue eye,
You would have said, bud God's will been, That she was far too young to die.
But, think again, her course was run, And she was called up to the sky ;
She's free from every grief and care. Then it was best that she should die.
She's not amongst us here below.
An angel now she dwells on high; She's folded in her Saviour's arms.
Ah, then 'twas best that she should die.
