The Port Macquarie News and Hastings River Advocate between 1908 and 1914, reported that Thomas Curran was contracted to build roads between Huntingdon and Comboyne, and for the Walcha Road on the mid-North Coast of NSW. Curran’s obituary states that “he had the mail contract between Port Macquarie and Walcha 48 years ago, and settled at Hyndman’s Creek 12 years later. He followed road contracting for a number of years, finally taking up dairying until the time of his death. He was president of the Wauchope Jockey CIub, also a delegate of Central North Coast Racing Association.” Ref: The Manning River Times and Advocate for the Northern Coast Districts of NSW, 14.4.1928.
