Early years Later in 1879 while Hare and Standish were in charge Photograph The police got really stirred up over a report of a visit by the KellyGang which they got on the morning of the 24/5/1879 to the following effect: "that a party of four men had been seen crossing through some country on two occasions by a farmer, and that they were going in the direction of Cleary's house. ...I feel certain that they were the outlaws. .. I did not know them by their personal appearance, but from their manner I think they must be the outlaws."
Sup Hare and a party of police came up as a result and I met them on the road. On the road from Glenrowan to the station owned by Mr. Newcomen, some of the police saw me. Hare described me as one of the greatest sympathizers of the KellyGang, The police continued towards Wangaratta before they turned for Cleary's but they did not fool me. When the police turned up at Cleary's they found me staying there. (RC1285)
After the Siege Const Robert Graham reported on 26th April 1881 relative to sympathizers of late KellyGang. -I beg to report for the information of the superintendent that a number of them were here in Greta yesterday, drinking, viz.: -Jack Quinn, Tom Lloyd, jun, Paddy McAuliffe, Tom McAuliffe, John McMonigal, and Jack Nolan; and from their manner I am led to believe that another outbreak among them is imminent. Jack Quinn is very anxious to find out who it was that got the sympathizers arrested in 1879. They all appear to have a great dislike to Pat Quinn, and speak of him as the black tracker."(RC9870)

My brothers Michael and Daniel Nolan were members of the Greta Mob and we were all sympathizers.
I was the eldest son ( of 16 children) ( other brothers and sisters include John and Mary Nolan, Ellen (originally known as John Nowlan).
My parents lived at Greta – they seemed to settle there around the mid 1870s.
My father, John Nolan was born in 1856 or 1857 and died in 1930. According to the death notice (Wangaratta Chronicle Feb 5 1930) John Nolan was a farmer from Myrrhee and ‘very highly respected” and from “an old district family”
