Lorenzo Hynes Halloran (1831–1907)

On Wednesday last, says the Barraba News, Mr. Lorenzo Hynes Halloran, a very old resident of this distinct, was returning home from Barraba to his son-in-law's place on the Norton River, and by what we can learn, in trying to open the 9 mile gate, he got off his horse which broke away from him. It being nearly dark the old gentleman started to walk, but being weak and exhausted laid down at the foot of a tree to camp for the night, and during the night he died.
