Employed at the Black Range Mine, Mr Walsh had just the previous month sent his wife and infant child to Victoria for a much-needed change. A few days later, a poisoned hand prevented him from working, and for nearly a month he was under Dr. Keenan's care. Finally improving, he attended a ball and, although he did not dance, caught a chill and the next day needed to be treated for pneumonia. He was admitted to Nurse Cox' Private Hospital, where Dr Keenan and Dr Stead performed an operation but held faint hopes for his recovery and he sank rapidly to his demise. Mr Walsh' funeral was attended by a large number of residents of the district, including members of the Druids' Lodge, of which he was one of the founding members. The deceased is buried in the Roman Catholic portion of the cemetery, plot number 3. Brother P Walsh and Sister thanked Nurse Cox and Mrs Parker and D Keenan for their kindness
