PIONEER'S DEATH DUBBO, Friday Mr William Walden, whose death occurred at Dubbo recently, at the age of 82 years, was one of the last links with the old coaching days. For many years Mr Walden drove for Cob and Co. on the Orange to Bourke line, and when the railway line was built to Bourke he drove from Dubbo to Coonamble. Mr Walden was widely known in the west and during his last years in Dubbo was frequently visited by the older generation of graziers. Mr Walden first came to Dubbo 54 years ago.

OBITUARY. WILLIAM WALDEN. Another link with the very old days of Dubbo is severed by the death at the ripe old age of 82, William Walden, who came to Dubbo 54 years ago and passed away quietly on Saturday last at his home in Brisbane-street. For many years Mr Walden drove for Cobb & Co., an employment which he kept up until coaches became a thing of the past. For a long time he was on the Orange to Bourke line, and when the train went through to Bourke, he drove the coach from Dubbo to Coonamble. Widely known and respected throughout the west, the late Mr Walden on retiring took an hotal in Gilgandra, and later came to Dubbo, where he had lived for many years prior to his death. He was full of strange tales of the early coaching days, and was frequently visited by old westerners coming to this town. He was a native of Wilberforce, on the Hawkesbury River. Mr Walden leaves a widow and six sons and one daughter, the sons being Frederick and Melville, of Nabiac, Herbert, Sidney and Frank, of Sydney, and Wilfred of Gilgandra. The daughter os Mrs. R.C. Rose of Dubbo. The body was taken to Gilgandra by motor hearse on Sunday, and the funeral took place in the Methodist portion of the cemetery at this place after a service had been held in the church by the Rev. Bensley, who also officiated at the graveside. The coffin was borne from the church to the hearse by two sons and two sons in law, and from the hearse to the graveside by four grandsons. All but two of Mr Walden's children were natives of Dubbo. There was a large concourse of relatives and friends at the graveside...
